Well, I suppose if I wrote comments about Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf, they wouldn’t be neutral. I just love the Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf. They are simply next to none. So, I judge all the beers from "Altstadt Duesseldorf" equally.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an utmost clear, brown-ember color, with a stable, big head.
The aromas are unusual metallic in this one, adding a lot of copper to the nose, while almost overpowering the beers bready malt base. A faint layer of grassy hops shines through, working well with the toasty malts. After the initial, slightly harsh beginning, the beer’s components begin to work well together, with chewy, grainy hay becoming recognizable from the profound malt foundation.
Has an unusual low carbonation for this style, especially when regarding the coppery nose, hinting at a higher carbonation. Even for a sessionable beer, this finishes very aqueous, with all other flavours leaving the palate inmediately after becoming recognizable for a short glance.
Begins with an interesting mix of toasted, earthy malts and sweeter toffee, with a short appearance of leafy hops cutting through. The brew then turns sweeter and maltier, and its coppery flaw becomes visible on the tongue. Finishes watery, with a faint hop bitterness arising.
Pretty boring, features an unusual tame and light bodied interpretation of an Alt, for coming directly out of Düsseldorf. Reminds me of a mass produced Alt, as there is just not much going on. This basically prevents itself from getting recognizable, independent characteristics.

On tap at the source, pours a clear amber color with a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, herbal. The taste is roasty, a touch of fruit, herbal, ending dry and roasty. The body is light with average carbonation. A decent Altbier.

Deep nutty color with a big tan head. Nice lacing. Malty, nutty and mild herbal aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Herbal, rich caramel malty, fruity and herbal. Quite ok beer that was destroyed by a really heavy carbonation.
