3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear amber color with a average fair lacing off-white head. Aroma is light malty, roasted, notes of grain. Flavor is moderate sweet, acidic and bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft, finish feel has a very short metallic pick. A beer where i think both flavor and aroma is not in balance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the brewpub. Clear amber, small creamy head. Pungent, almost aggresive fruity nose leaning towards plums and metal. Dryish with fairly clean mouthfeel. Lightly spritzy, grassy and ashy with some minerals and salty finish. A good altbier with a pleasant depth of flavours.

2013-10-03, from wooden cask, at the bräuhaus, 7-5-8-5-16=41
This is probably the sweetest and fruitiest example of Altbier in the city, with more pronounced hoppiness than the others. A real pleasure.

Amber color. Nice aroma, with malt and caramel; partially aromatic when warmer (as usual in Düssledorf Altbier are served too cold). The body is well structured, but has only a strong caramel character. Very bitter end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark golden body under a nice, off-white head. Bready, caramel nose with a faint vegetal note and some prunes. Roasted notes too. Quite dry in the mouth, with caramel and bread, hints of roasted malts and dried fruits in the back. A little hazelnut touch and some bitterness lingering. Medium to full body with palate cleansing carbonation. Dry, bready finish with some fine bitterness. A really fine altbier that I would love to drink all night some time.. 091008
