BlackHaddock (5639) - Shropshire, - NOV 16, 2012
Tall flip-top bottle: best before 15 Dec 2012. Poured (three times) into one of my Hannen Alt glasses @ home during a random tasting evening on 16 Nov 2012. Looks reminded me of a cola with a head that stayed longer than normal: certainly that colour anyway. Poor nose: just weak malt notes and an earthy whiff. The taste is also on the weak side: mildly malty but no depth or ’umph’ to the brew at all, a big disappointment to be honest. Maybe it’s better fresh or on-tap, but I doubt it. The beer did seem to grow on me a little as I got used to its flavours, there was some bitterness to be found along with those malts mentioned earlier but it still didn’t cut the mustard as a good Alt in my eyes.

Light caramel brown colour. Dense and creamy off-white head. Taste is caramel and malts. Aroma is somewhat grassy with some notes of earth and wood.

Zlotta (1200) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
0.5 l swingtop bottle from ’Holy Craft Beer Store’, best before March 2016. Clear, amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Faint, malty-grassy, slightly roasty aroma of caramel and nuts. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel and nuts, followed by a short, medium bitter, grassy and slightly roasty finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Decent, nothing special.

Erzengel (7126) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2015
On tap at Kürzer. Smooth malty beginning. Not too much bitterness, smooth and easy to dink. Hints of caramel, malt and dark malt. The level of bitterness is not too high, easy to drink with a smooth caramelly dark aftertaste. Round and nice.

bierkoning (11870) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2015
Tap @ the source. Copper color. Bland soft caramelly aroma. Malty sweetish flavor with some caramelly notes. Disappointing.

DrNosha (1343) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2015
Vom Fass im Brauhaus in der Düsseldorfer Altstadt. Dezentes Malzaroma. Für ein Alt recht helles Braun. Auch der Geschmack ist etwas wässrig. bitterer Abgang. Schön dass es ein neues Altbrauhaus gibt, aber das Bier ist noch verbesserungsfähig. Es hat mir noch zu wenig Ecken und Kanten.

rgf001 (292) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Faint floral aroma almost undetectable. Flavor tasting is affected by oxidation notes. Firm bitterness not as astringent as Schumacher but not as appealing caramelly oxidation notes. Dry finish with oxidized aftertaste.

Quack-Duck (9075) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2015
bottle, kindly donated by pivnizub - diky! Deep amber colour, mid-sized off-whiet head. Intensive malty base with some caramel, plus lots of good and bitter hops - bitter-sweet overall impression. Good!
