Silvan7 (786) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 22, 2014
Bottle @ home. Colore giallo dorato, limpido, schiuma bianca fine ed abbastanza persistente. Aroma floreale, vinoso, di uva bianca e con qualche sentore di miele. Gusto dolce abboccato, quasi secco, di nuovo floreale da luppolo, con note di miele e caramello. Poco corposa, non molto calda e poco carbonata. Equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica.

BLADT (657) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
From bottle. Pours a very clean gold in glass. Zippy. Smell has some banana right after pour. Sweet malts. Cloves. Taste is similar. Crisp apple notes. Faint honey sweetness. Dry on the palate. Easy drinking.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Nothing like an Alt in my experience. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy very pale yellow color with a huge creamy-soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and tart citric acid. The flavor was tangy and tart lemon, a bit of perfume and a touch of bread dough. Long tangy and tart lemon finish. Light body. Very disappointing.

gildnerk (145) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
Flasche. Gießt hellgelb mit einer weißen, sich schnell auflösenden Schaumkrone (à la Pilsener). Markante Honig- und Parfümaromen mit etwas Zitrusfrucht. Geschmacklich ausgewogenen zwischen leichten Sauer- und Bitterrichtungen. Feine Kohlensäure und ein rundes Mundgefühl. Relativ trocken, wenn auch wässerig, im Abgang. Sehr schönes (Alt?!)Bier.

obguthr (4233) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pronounced honey nose, significant dandelion and clover. Hazy golden, medium sticky head. Tastes as it smells, but dry and malty. Dandelion is unmistakable. Light body, soft carbonation. Fantastic altbier. Smells like a mead, drinks like an English golden ale.

ThirstyBird (1880) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2014
Pours a clear light yellow color with a large fizzing white head that falls to just a ring. The smell is grain, light sweet malt and some grassy hops. The taste is grain, tangy fruit, grassy hops and definite dryness on the end. The body is light and the carbonation is average level sand tight and prickly. Obviously, not a Düsseldorf style altbier.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, Karamell, leicht bitter. Geschmack malzig, leicht nach Karamell, würzig bitterer Abgang.

MikeJslc (759) - USA - JAN 6, 2014
Gold, fairly clear, thin white head. Aroma of grainy malt with a little biscuit and a hint of honey. Flavor is honey-sweet malt and a pronounced apple fruitiness. The fruity character is prominent in flavor but not in aroma. A pretty one-dimensional light, fruity ale.

bartlebier (2235) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 50cl Karstadt Braunschweig. Pours lighter than most Alts, slightly past BB this has faint sour touches that seem normal, reading recent reviews. More like a zesty Kölsch, sharing its fruity lemonade mats and mild hops; rather pleasant - although easy to see this could go off when shipped.//bottle bb06/2014, Biomarkt FR-Rieselfeld: apple juice malt aromatics, some almond quality, slightly sticky palate with a cardboard finish. A conflicted Kölsch, not an Alt at all.-0.2 /Rerates, 50cl from Biomarkets: learned in the meantime that Müstersch Alt is a separate style that is supposed to be nore anemic and a little tart, well if you are looking for one of those, you have the only lasting commercial example herr. still feel it has been taste-conglomerated though - especially when compared to new Münster Überwasser Alt.
