4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy amber, small head. Earth, grass and dough up front. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. concentrated and earthy, rich on hay-like hops, yet driven by malt. Probably the best altbier style beer I’ve had from outside greater Düsseldorf.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml shared at tasting. The aroma suffers a little from age, oxidation. The taste, however, is quite true to style. Toasty caramel/munich malt, orange tones. Almost has a smoky, rustic feel to it. OK.

75cl bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse - SO. Weak and thin orange honey pour, translucent. Nose of mainly herbal hops, metallic roast and diluted caramel. Taste is of bitter nuts, astringent to medicinal, obvious lack of caramalt body for the Alt style, especially Sticke.

"An ok example of the style. Liked the depth of the malt, the feel and the color, though the aroma seemed to be a step behind. Pleasant, but no need for a 750."
