3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aug 2006: My first ever review (on BA). Only ever drank it in the brewhouse, and I can only say, it was great on all three occasions. It is off the main Alt Stadt drinking area, but well worth finding. The whole place added to the way I remember the beer tasted.
Not a typical Dusseldorf Alt by any means. Slightly darker and not as sweet compared to most.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
15/04/2012 500ml bottle, IP trade (thanks Erzangel!). Ambrata, abbastanza limpida, schiuma bianca abbondante, a grana grossolana, molto persistente. Aroma di crosta di pane, malto, lieviti, con una lieve nota fastidiosa (forse una piccola infezione?). In bocca è ancora malto, pane, luppolo, moderatamente amara. Corpo medio, carbonazione abbondante. Peccato, non era in perfetta forma.

Tap @ brewery. Poured copper color with a creamy white head. Aroma was grainy and bready, light sweetness. Flavor was bready malt, caramel and toffee. Bitter finish. Thinner body than schlussel, but very sessionable. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel

A typical German Alt beer. Light dark color and good flavor. Sometimes a bit too sweet but depends on when I drink it. NIce beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brewery. Expected appearance - clear, copper body with a creamy, off-white head that is fluffy like a root beer float. Almost pattern-like lacing. Nice, hoppy nose with some toasty malt underneath. Rich malt flavor - same expected toast, but with some caramel and faint, Heath-like toffee presence. Hops poke through, too. Medium body with light carbonation. Good, solid, lingering bitterness to balance the malt. Excellent alt!
