Pours clear ruby with a small white head. Malty aroma, with some yeasty notes. Clean malty flavour, some toffee notes and digestive biscuit. Quite hoppy / bitter in the finish, a little spicy almost. Not bad.

Bottled. Reddish brown, with copper glints, sporting a modest beige head. Malt base with stagnant metallic backbone. I needed to give this beer more time and attention to really appreciate it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty, sweet, with some hints of roastiness. I was suprised by its medium-bodiedness, as most macro alts are pretty watery. With its slight malty sweetness and its body it comes across as a macro imitation of the more balanced kind of Düsseldorf brewpub alts, like Schlüssel or Füchschen. Definitely the best macro alt, I´ve had.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a ruby colour, with a medium sized but short lived foamy head. Malty and yeasty aroma. Roasted malts and quite sweet, with a woody, dry finish. Pretty good mouthfeel, slightly carbonated. Good alt.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 [At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] A clear brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet malty with hints of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with clear notes of roasted bread. A nice beer, but nothing special.
