Dark coppery colored with little light brown head. Sweet and chocolaty aroma with hops, some British lemony note here. Medium bodied. Flavor is even more hopped with crispy bitterness, nice chocolate here too. Good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. [thanks Feldthaus/Lau]
Pours golden copper with a big, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet and fairly malty, some slight butterscotch and grassy hops. Medium carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour starts quite metallic, but it gets less and less. Dry, some caramel malts, fairly crisp. Very dry finish. Good, but the Schumacher was better.

Quite a sweet aroma with a hint of caramel. Flavour has a better balance of sweet and bitter (compared to many other Altbiers). Texture is a little bit fuller, richer too. Easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap @ Brewpub in Düsseldorf, Germany. Probably shouldn’t have had a bier since I am sick but well, I was feeling really good this day. This was an excellent alt. Pours an amber-black cherry combination. Nice size head and decent lacing. Nose was roasted malts, rosemary, and candied nuts. Taste is malt, burnt, leather, nutmeg, herbal and excellently balanced. Felt good on the palate. Well rounded brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5 l fliptop bottle.
It pours a chestnut brown with a nice off-white creamy/frothy head on top, which remains filmy, the carbonation’s lively.
The smell is of yeast, malt and some roastyness.
It begins tiny crisp, the taste is sweet and the flavour’s dried fruity and nutty.
The middle is of caramell/roasted malt and citrus hops, the finish is spicy, citric and bitter, which gives a perfect balance to the malt and remains in a pleasant aftertaste.
The beers texture is moderate sticky, body’s medium.
Overall a fine Alt, really made for my taste.
