JorgeLee (1736) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Hermann. Deep rich warm brown colour, thin white foam. Nice malty hint caramel, clean, correct bitterness. Nothing too assertive but well made and drinkable, avoids the metallic nature of too many Alts I have tried.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2014
50cl freshly bb06/20145 catered by McTapps, danke. Looking forward to this off the beaten DüsselAlt, going by their Pils. Diluted toffee in the nose, old cola, whiff of herbal hops which immediately dominate the taste profile over the style-typical dry toasted cara/Vienna malts. At the same time quite sweet for the style, with a lingering herbal, "twiggy", slight mineral finish. Expected more considering their Pils, this Alt both surpasses what I like about the style in bitterness, while delivering less of that ESB-like subtle toastiness.

Erzengel (7548) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2014
Malzig-herb. Nett bitter, angenehme Malztöne ohne zu süßlich zu sein. Herb-bitterer Nachgeschmack, deutlich milder als die Düsseldorfer Altbiere, aber von der Grundtendenz gut & in dieser Richtung. Lecker!

ThirstyBird (2583) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Pours an oringish brown color with a light tan head. The smell is roasted malt, mild brown sugar, a bit nutty. The taste is brown sugar, roasted malt, some fruit ending dry and somewhat bitter. The body is Light+ with average carbonation. A bit sweet then abruptly dry, roast and bitter.

Vaiz (4222) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin foamy off-white head. Aroma of grainy malts, some caramel, a hint of licorice, slightly spicy and a bit murky. Flavor is slightly bitter, quite watery and slightly spicy. Boring and a bit thin.

Moravius (1076) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Stumpfes Braunrot, klar. - In der Nase mildes Röstmalz, frische Fruchtigkeit und leider auch muffig-käsige Fehlnoten. Ein Blick aufs Etikett verrät, woran das liegt: hier wird ausschließlich Hopfenextrakt verwendet. - Im Antrunk huscht eine frische, mild herbe Fruchtigkeit über die Zunge, gestützt von lieblichen Röstmalznoten. Eine zarte pikante Säure erhöht noch den frischen, süffigen Eindruck. Leider schlägt gleich darauf der Hopfenextrakt mit grausam käsiger, dumpf-aromaleerer Bittere zu. Mild rezent, samtiges Mundgefühl. Unangenehme Fehltöne auch im schön bitteren, angenehm trockenen Abgang. - Könnte ein richtig gutes Altbier sein, wenn es nicht von fiesen Hopfenextrakt-Fehlaromen verdorben würde. Merken die bei Fiege das denn nicht? Hopfenextrakt hat in Qualitätsbieren nichts verloren!
