stevoj (2079) - 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.

Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
One of the more mass-marketed Alts, also sold in cans. Light beige, creamy, thin but relatively stable head, colour a reddish bronze with orange glow, clear. Malty aroma, hazelnuts, bitter chocolate, pear, dates, banana, nutmeg, leather, peat, cloves, grapefruit, pepper. Malty taste, dried fruits, bitterish, smooth and bit resinous mouthfeel, tonic water-like bitterness in the finish, long and dry. Nice.

GBZ59 (1116) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUN 15, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Vaso de Tubo. Color ámbar amarronado y apariencia algo velada. Espuma blanca y esponjosa que crea una tupida corona con bastante buena retención. Aromas florales y leves de chocolate. Sabores tostados y levemente chocolateados al primer sorbo. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Textura densa algo aguada. Amargor bajo pero limpio que, junto a las notas herbales, permanece en el prolongado final amargo/dulce. Retrogusto reseco con notas de madera. Una deliciosa cerveza y de trago agradable. 330ml bottle. Stange glass. Brownish amber, chill haze appearance. Off-white foam creates a close crown & shows fairly good retention. Floral & light chocolate aromas. Toasted & slight chocolaty flavors at first sip. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense to watery texture. Low but clean bitterness & herbal notes linger into a long bitter/sweet finish. Dried aftertaste where woody hues are displayed. Delightful beer with very nice drinkability.
