1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle (from Ministerstwo Browaru, Poznan). Started very sour (unripe fruit). In the finish, the sourness was accompanied by aggressive tartness which occupied my taste buds for several minutes. Had nothing in common with a Düsseldorf Altbier though the label vaguely refered to Düsseldorf. Something must have gone completely wrong with this beer or at least with my bottle... As the other ratings are rather positive, I guess it was my bottle only. Still, I’d rather not try another one in the near future.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with thick off-white head. Sweetish, bready, malty and fruity aroma. Sweet taste of malt and caramel. That’s my first altbier, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it is not quite representative of the type due to the considerable sweetness. Not bad, though.
