Grumbo (1199) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
Tap at Brauerei Zur Uel, Düsseldorf. Pours deep amber with a lasting off- white head. Aroma of malt, hop, banana and caramel. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Medium body, slight sticky/earthy texture. Average carbonation. Finish has a bitter edge.

Amber color. Typical Alt caramel notes, but more strong on the hop side. Similarities to West coast pale ale but less fruity or sweet. Interestingly different.

SinH4 (2447) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Bottle courtesy of King_Alex_II, beautiful clear copper color with big tan head. Aroma is slightly metallic, caramel, herbal. Taste is Kräuterbonbon, nutty, fresh, with an earthy-tangy sting. Medium carbonation. Surprisingly dry. Very dry. Easily drinkable. The prototypic Alt.

vanillaringer (29) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2016
Bitter. Thin and light in the mouth. One-sided and not overly complex. Color is warm. Interesting Alt Bier, but not my style.

Subtle iron smell like general Alt
Acute bitterness
Iron flavour in the finish
Grapefruit like lasting bitter aftertaste

Found it’sspecial in the bitterness in a good way.

One2remeber (245) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Draft, BH. Brown malt, bready, lite figs, fresh malty wort, not hoppy, rich pale malt. Hard to determine nationality. Clean fermx. Light mild chocolate. Bit of nuts and honey. Chalky, dry body. A lot less sweetness than a brown ale, lighter malt bill, but still robust in flavor. Wonderful head retention throughout, thick lacing after each sip. Slight banana-pudding like fruity esters as it warms. Husky, grain forefront flavor and mf. Finishes papery dry. Very drinkable.

szeli (253) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Das ausbalancierteste Alt des TS-Day 2015, süffig. Leicht fruchtig, dazu das Alt-typische Karamell. Nachgeschmack sehr angenehm, trocken, eisig. Insgesamt sehr gut.

I am from Düsseldorf and have grown up on Altbier, this is by far the choice of the locals and the most balanced in my opinion. Malt forward and a noble Hallertauer Hops finish, on the hoppy side for us Germans, but not for americans. The head has a rich caramel aroma to it and should be a dark shade of eggshell. If you are in Düsseldorf I highly recommend going there on a Wednesday night, so you get what I mean by choice of locals.
