Gorbalev (2974) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2006
Shared by Radek on Canada Day ’06 with the usual fine folks. Very dark yellow, creamy white head. Malty, soft hops in mild aroma. Same goes for taste - some malt, some soft hops. Creamy mouthfeel. A little nutty. Didn’t leave much of an impression.

GregClow (2932) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Bottle shared with the usual suspects - courtesy of Radek. Light amber with a moderate white head. Nose is sweet and malty, perhaps a bit of fruitiness. Flavour seemed a bit stale to me, but nice - albeit simple - with some mild roasty malt, a bit of nutiness, and a thinly hopped finish. Obviously a well made beer, but lacking... something.

HogTownHarry (6136) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle (500ml). Shared with GregClow, tupalev, DougShoemaker, mds, Radek and others - Radek’s bottle. Poured clear copper with a decent foamy white head. Mild but pleasing aroma of light roast malt, grain, wood and some tangy yeast. Light roasty taste, again a little woody, soft and simple, not long on the palate, finishes somewhat bitter - I liked it, maybe not tons, but I liked it.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. A drinkable if a little boring alt. Quite clean and dry, with some slight nuttyness and some bitter hops in the finish. Drinkable, but average.

EithCubes (5138) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle. Clear copper pour, creamy beige head. Caramel with toffee and a hint of wood. Velvety smooth, creamy/watery body. Both bitterness and sweetness are restrained, this is middle-of-the-road. Quite pleasant – probably the smoothest and mildest of the Alts I’ve tried recently - but doesn’t knock my socks off. Thanks to MoritzF!

harrisoni (14352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2006
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Moderate sourness, moderate charcoal and dark malts. It’s an interesting mix between a dunkel and an English old ale. Dunkel aroma with a bit more sourness. Mouthfeel is like a dark lager with lemon charcoal liquorice finish. Just lacks a bit of depth.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2006
This one is up there with Gleumes, my to-date favorite altbier. Poured a deep and rich crystal clear copper color with a huge head that sustained itself quite well and provided great lacing. The aroma was hard to discern, malty and hoppy (couldn’t pick much specific up). The flavor was great within the style, with caramel malts coming through balanced by a nice hoppy bitter and dry finish. These alts are so darned balanced and crisp (lagers), that it’s no wonder they got me started in the beer world. Some minor flavors that come through in this one: wood (my notes agree with jonmoore on that one!) and light butter. Very drinkable beer. Good stuff. Viva la alt.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
Draught. Bright copper-brown with a medium, creamy off-white head. The aroma is cookie-ish and dough along with caramel and soapy hops. Flavour is a little too soapy and buttery - some bread backing but there are flavour that I could do without. Toasty for the most part with chewy caramel and light hops finishing. Not the best example of the style by any means. Tried this at the brewpub in Düsseldorf on May 26, 2006.

ogivlado (6079) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 22, 2006
Canned(500ml). -Altbier from can???? Clead amber coloured, small pale brown head, roasted malt and brown sugar in aroma, slight toffee and mild nutty notes and dry finish. Not so bad as I’ve expected, but I have the impression that in a bottle this beer would be better.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Light copper in color with a small off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Very thin body. less bitterness than it’s peers and not as much malt balance.
