3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 50cl fliptop, bottled 30.07.2013. This must be the freshest bottle I’ve ever had, thanks ThirstyBird! Benchmark Alt in many ways: pours a dark amber with fresh and dense off-white head, aromas are contained fresh spice and caramalt. Enjoyable dry woody palate going well with the attenuated caramel, earthy and herbal hop zing, creating a combined earschmalz bitterness. Lots of easy-drinking character for a 4,5% beer. //rerate draught from source, 02/2014, Tour de Rheinländle GC. Distinctly unpasteurised, fresh protein nose. Pours almost as pale as a Kölsch. Less dark wood in the taste, some white pepper and a lingering bitter dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Fuchschen, May 2013. The same brown color and big white lacing head as the other alts in town. Mildly roasted grains, with a smooth palate. I am finding most of these alts very similar, but of high quality. I had three of these at Fuchschen in glasses that are much too small.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Fuchschen. Dark amber with a long lasting off white head. Aroma of grainy malt, toffee, dough and herbal hops. Flavor is rich doughy malt, caramel and a mild hop bitterness. Medium to light body with soft carbonation. Good Alt but I like some of the others in town better.
