tderoeck (4484) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
2/V/14 - 25cl tap @ Schweine Janes (Düsseldorf) - BB: n/a (2014-462)

Pale clear cola-like coloured beer, aery fizzy big bubbled beige head, also resembling cola, unstable, dissipates quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, grains, sugary, cow fodder. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: some caramel, sourish, bit lemony, sweet, caramel, grains. Aftertaste: surprisingly bitter, sourish, dry, grains, hay, cow fodder, not sweet at all. This brings back some memories. I used to dance on the tables at Knoten after the European Football League’s Worldbowl finals a few years ago... Now having the same beer just one block away from that same place. Pretty funny. :p Different times, different setting, different company. :-)

jjsint (725) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
500 ml bottle @ Bedford:Bamberg Spring Fest 2014. Colour is a ruddy amber/brown. Big ass beige head but that’s down to my drunk pouring. Chocolate malt aroma, slight undertones of metal and grass. Nutty bittersweet taste, simple but enjoyable. Long sweet finish. Warming palette. I don’t understand why this isn’t more highly rated. It’s never going to compete with impy stouts or quads but it’s tasty and moreish.

Russo (1678) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2014
Clear brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is malty and slightly roasted, notes of dark fruits. Flavor is like aroma but sweet like burned sugar. Medium carbonation and light to medium body with a light sweet bitterness finish.

gildnerk (128) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
Kommerzielles Alt. Kastanienbraun mit luftiger weißer Schaumkrone. Betont werden die Aromen gerösteter Malzen und Nüsse. Recht bitter-herb und süffig wie ein richtiges Alt, dennoch etwas charakterlos. Wenn’s im Angebot nichts Anderes gibt, gerne; sonst trinke ich lieber ein Massenpils.

0,2l on Tap in Düsseldorf! Typisches Alt, recht süffig. Könnte malziger sein. Bestenfalls Durchschnitt.

Homer321 (1851) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
(from notes) Very cold. Faint grassy and peppery hop nose. Crystal clear, medium sized off white head. Medium hop bitterness with a peppery note that lasts thru the finish. Not as bitter as I was expecting for my first Alt in Germany. Richer malt flavors come through as it warms. No real esters. Moderate alcohol noted.
