Very nice alt. Well balanced and malty with a clean finish. Best of the mass produced alts.

Fukito (991) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 31, 2007
Tap, march 07. Clear copper color with a nice, medium, creamy light beige head. Slight raisiny aroma, but a bit shy. Nice, strong, toasty, nutty, toffee flavor with a slight bitter aftertaste. Fruity ending. Medium, malty MF, cedar like with a nice, lingering feeling. Nice, comfortable, well done alt.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle, 4.8%. Clear brown colour, OK head.The flavour starts off roasted, turning malty and finishing clean and a bit boring.

fonefan (41314) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2007
Draught. Clear amber color with a small fair lacing white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, nutty, light hoppy. Flavor is light sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
Better than the Fuchschen. Quite a woody, vinous snout. Some spritzy, distinctly barrelly woodiness coming across. But lovely rounded sweet maltiness finishing things off. Not as impressively lacy as the Fuchschen, but it is bottled. A refreshingly malty example well worth 4 Euros a pop out of the hotel minibar.

Ugh, little justice served to this one from that photo of a can at 10 o’clock.
Tried this vom fass at an Italian restaurant (of all things) across from der Fischhaus, die Altstadt, Düsseldorf, Germany.
Produces a sweaty, bright tawny copper in the fading sun of Summer 2006. Head, limp and flaccid, a mere dollop of diminishing shaving-cream foam that barely legged, barely lasted. Forest floor nose, damp soil, moist driftwood, a little burnt stick, hard to decipher with the carbonation so soft - I remember, though, it was pleasing! Gifted, tangy malt taint on the palate, it’s dusty, gritty like chewing coffee beans - in a good way. Malts leave the scene mid-palate, it’s hops I was searching for and bugger me, they are swimming. This was served top form I believe. It’s woody, piney and raw then all forest-floor (good, because it rhymed!). Noble, Chernobyl, the hops are just fresh plucked from the garden, thrown in at all times of the boil and lay like an infusion on and in the swallow. Dusty, leafy, herbal, a little pepper, tarragon, chives and lemon rind. Nice, bitter herbal length just exulted the effect it had. It was nice stuff, I cannot lie. The body is light, it’s downfall being I tasted this after ’The Little Fox’ and ’Zum Uerige’ where their beers were aggressive. With my wife drunk by now I polished off just a few of these fresh babies and carried my beloved out the old town. Barely 10 p.m., the sun had just set.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 25, 2006
Tasting of 10 altbiers. Drops into the cathegory of too many similar alts. Easy, didn’t really taste much compared to others. Very balanced I suppose. Not much of an aftertaste.

Radek Kliber (6869) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark amber with fizzy top. Woody, earthy character covered with sweet clean pale malt. Gentle hoppy bitterness. Medium full bodied dark with woody, earthy character. Good true alt. Finish highlited with hopps and hints of tabaco. Very good example of alt.
