Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Füchschen, Düsseldorf. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Good example.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2007
Delicious white and compact foam covers the clear amber body. Fresh smelling alt displaying plenty of grassy tones over the gentle grainy maltiness of utter softness. More developed than most. Light nutty nuances accompany the crisp, toasty and rather dry maltiness. Mild fruitiness can’t be picked out individually, but is felt throughout. Strong, tight-bubbled effervescence is exquisitely refreshing. Slight woodiness. Extremely crisp altbier. Very active in mouth and this is what I’ll remember. Almost minty in its herbal finish. Hugely fresh.

harrisoni (14619) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
On tap at Bruxellensis. Pale copper, thin white head. Some decent malt, bit grainy, some hop on end. Very tasty, good alt. More bitter than some others I tasted. Good drinkability.

JoeinDahlem (1362) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 Thanks to Andy from Bier-Mania for bringing these to Bruxellensis... It’s a nice quaffer with a grass-hoppy kick toward the end. Dark-orange amber with a white, filmy head. Faint biscuit-caramel aroma with apple notes. Just a touch sweet before a bitter, dry finish. Damn nice. RE-RATED after sampling at the pub in Dusseldorf.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2007
Brown colored brew. Nice aroma, caramel. Flavor has got a distinct bitterness, not too overwhelming. A little sweetness too. Nice.

caesar (5585) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2007
Clear brown color, short off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, some hop, bit toasty. Slight sweet taste, cookie, caramel malt, slight bitter. Not brilliant, but probably one of the better altbeers.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle from a great trade with Koelschtrinker (thanks!). Clear brown with a beige head. Lovely aroma of toasty, caramelly malts, some dark fruitiness, hops and a hint of dark chocolate. Nice sweetish caramel malts flavor with some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied.

TaxiDriver (1487) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle. Sweet, the smell of bread and brown cookies. A small white frothy head which is mostly diminishing. The body is orange-red. The beer starts light bitter and is later on even more bitter. The duration is average. On the palate the beer has a light to medium body, a soft carbonation and a very dry texture. Very refreshing

joergen (22451) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2007
Draught. Clear amber coloured with a white head. Malty aroma of hay and hops. Sweet flavour of malts, hay and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

asheft (2655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
[on tap at brewpub] Very nice toasted malt aroma with some noble hops--a little dusty, though. Clear light brown with lacy white top and lasting flanel blanket. Quite ascertive bitterness in front of a sort of sour/young flavour. Some toastiness and weak hops flavour as well. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Refreshing.
