A personal reccomendation from one of my German colleagues on a recent trip to Dusseldorf... I was not disappointed!
Got it nice and fresh at Brauerei zum Fuchschen in Dusseldorf Altstadt.
I am a pilsener man, but this is the favored style in this area, and it’s a great one! Nice malty sweetness, great color and head. Well balanced hoppiness, there but not overpowering as one would expect in this style. Great!

Draught at the brewery / brewery outlet in Düsseldorf Altstadt, on December 27, 2008. Clear dark brown color, fluffy tan head. Fresh malty and yeasty scent. Spicy and malty rich taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Draught at Brauerei Zur Uel, on March 12, 2010
Herbal hoppy almost spicy bitter taste with a caramel sweetness to back it up. Well balanced taste with a dry medium high bitterness that leaves room for another taste. Herbal hoppy and nice fruity sweet scent, yummy. Medium mouthfeel, to the high side with co2. Clear dark copper color,w ith a nice looking tan to yellowish lasting head. I love these small beer servings, though you quickly end up asking for another one. The freshness of the beer, with the slightest touch of yeast, mixed with that herbal hoppiness is just awesome.

previously tested on German BTO 04/2007: Dank an MoritzF!
Relativ wenig Schaum, aber schöne Farbe. Deutlich hopfig, aber beim Füchschen ist viel deutlicher Malz und etwas Röstmalz zu spüren, als beim Uerigen. Sehr vollmundig und gut ausgewogen. Tolles Alt!
