stevoj (2743) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Dusseldorf altbier style, although not a very good one. Color and aroma is right, but taste and palate are weak and watery.

StueyD (1387) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
A dark copper brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A light, roasted malt aroma, nutty, cereal and caramel. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a dry roasted malt flavour, nutty, biscuity, cereal and caramel, then zesty fruity flavour that adds a refreshing element in the finish.

allmyvinyl (5768) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear brown merest white head. Aromas of metallic toffee, red fruit. Sweet, mineral taste, light fruits, light twiggy bitterness. Could be a boring British bitter!

kerenmk (3111) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 30, 2015
Draught at Cerveceria International, Sevilla, Spain, 6.3.2015. Clear dark brown, with a creamy white head. Honey, bun, some grain aroma, bitter, grainy, some honey taste. Medium-to-full body, fairly carbonated, malty finish.

JorisPPattyn (8343) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2015
Talk about a blast from the past. In times when foreign beer was as scarce as hens teeth in Be, this used to be one of the exceptions. Now, all but gone - not so in the Netherlands, ’t would seem. Dense, stable off-white head over clear, amber to chestnut beer. Cookes, caramel, parsley, toasted, bit liqueurish nose. Toast, wood/undergrowth, chestnuts, earthy, leaves. Light body, if quite slick. Not much of an aftertaste. Actually not all that bad. Just a bit... dusty in character?

McSherman (284) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 Schöne klare Farbe zwischen Cola und Kupfer. In der Nase Röstmalz. Schaum wenig beständig. Angenehmer leicht süßlicher Antrunk. Ordentlich malzig, etwas Röstaromen. Leicht blechern.

niquillis (1617) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours chestnut with off white head. A little bland, some caramel, some smoke, some altbiers can be overly malty. This is easy drinking.
