kalervo (1018) - FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Berliinissä maistiainen Juholta 5/2016. This is apparently supposed to be retired, but they sold beer named like this in the bar. It was good, sweet but balanced brown ale.

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 18, 2011
Hausbrauerei Hops & Barley, Berlin. Sötétebb árnyalatú vörösesbarna szín, kevés piszkosfehér, ám kitartó hab. Illata karamellás és kissé fémes, íze szintén karamellás, aszalt gyümölcsös, keserédes. Közepesen testes, könnyen iható, eléggé jellegtelen ale.

ogivlado (7254) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 11, 2011
Beer No. 43 on my tour through Austria, Germany and Denmark.
On tap at Hops & Barley. Clear amber coloured, small off-white head, hint of caramel in the nose. Weak malty, caramel and light nutty with touch of dried fruits in the finish. Bitterish sweet finish. Nothing special here.

Skinnyviking (8883) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 30, 2010
Draught. High creamy lasting off-white head. Hazy amber body. Weak malty caramel aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long bittersweet finish.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2010
On tap at the brauhaus. Not very brown at all -- more caramel looking with a trim beige head. Smells and tastes of malt, faint caramel, and grass. Moderately sweet on the finish with further caramel and mild orange pulp. Fair.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2009
On draught at Hausbrauerei Hops & Barley, Berlin, March 2009. No ABV given. Darkish red/brown. Quite nutty, with a touch of roast malt and an ale-typical earthy aroma. Some residual sweetness with more nuts and fruit lingering on the finish. Definitely more of a brown ale than an altbier. Not my favourite style but this was a creditable and interesting effort.
