From fass at the brauhaus
End of barrel, 6-5-6-3-13=33.
Chestnut color, clean, with generous compact head. It has a mild caramel aroma. The carbonation is high, the temperature too cold; the flavor focuses on rather dark caramel; the mouthfeel is smooth, but there is no residual sweetness; the roastiness is more evident in the end. Correct bitterness. Not exciting.

Start of barrel, 7-5-7-3-14=36 It shows a bit of biscuity malt aroma. The flavor is similar, quite dry as well, less evidence of roastiness, better balance, very light biscuity malt too. It’s better than the previous glass.

Nice Version of the Duesseldorf famous Altbier. Relatively Sweet and less bitter than many other Altbier styles

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Draught at the brewpub, end of November 2013. Ah yes, they make one beer and it is a very good one indeed. Light fruity aroma of ripe red apples but above all this is one malty beer - light toasted, light nutty, bready but also with notes of plums, especially in the long, pleasantly malty finish. Very nice, sticky mouthfeel, smooth with a medium bitterness, slightly herbal. The only problem I’ve had with this one were the sulfury notes, noticeably especially in the finish. Get rid of them and this beer will be excellent.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2014
Schöne braune Farbe, cremefarbener Schaum. Der Antrunk ist malzig-würzig, leicht süßlich-würzig. Ausgewogen weich. Im Hauptteil leicht nussig, würzig-malzig, etwas metallisch - wie Kupfer. Süßlich mit trockener Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, nicht zu herb, leicht trocken. Süßlich-malzig mit feinherber Note. --> 10/12/10/10

ThirstyBird (2314) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Pours a clear orangish brown with a thick tan head. The smell is caramel, roasted malt, a bit of fruit and spice. The taste is roasted malt, fruit, a bit of copper flavor and licorice ending dry. Light in body and a bit oily with soft carbonation. An interesting take on an altbier.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2013
Kupferrot-braunes Alt mit feinporigem Schaum. Hopfig-röstmalziges Aroma. Halbtrockener Antrunk. Im Geschmack nussig, toastig und röstig bis der alt-typische bittere Abgang erfolgt. Wahrlich ein Klasse-Alt!

omhper (21889) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Clear copper colur, small head. Roasty and mildly earthy. Medium bodied with rounded moutfheel. Some salty hops, pleasant earthy roastiness. Mid bitter finish. The deep malt character and excellent drinkability puts this among the classic altbiers to try.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Dieser Ratinger hat für ein Alt eine recht gute Schaumkrone und sieht optisch auch sehr schön aus. Im Geschmack bemerke ich einen ganz leichten Citrus touch, Hopfen, röstmalzigkeit, die Geschmacksintensivität ist gut und überdurchschnittlich. Im Nachgeschmack ist es herb und leicht röstig und im Abgang leicht bitter. Fazit: Ordentliches Alt, empfehlenswert! Test vom 23.5.2009, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,12,11,11,-,12 - 11,78

Koelschtrinker (14085) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Aromatisch-malziger Antrunk, cremig. Am Anfang ist dieses Aroma eher süßlich, später eher herb. Weiterhin vollmundig und recht malzig, etwas hopfig im Mittelteil. Das Malz ist die ganze Zeit weit im Vordergrund und lässt die anderen Aromen mild aussfallen. Dennoch wirkt es ausbalanciert, sehr schmackhaft und süffig. Sauber! Test vom 14.8.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 11,12,12,11,-,11 - 11,31
