Jado (533) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap. Poured a burnished copper with a one-finger cream-coloured head. The aromas were some dark fruit (raisins mainly), caramel, cinnamon and a touch of smoke. The taste was dominated initially by malty caramel sweetness, but that washed away fairly quickly to a light bitterness followed by fruit at the end. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a lightly spicy aftertaste. Not bad.

Andy_ (693) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Reddish-brown clear beer with a nice head leaving lacing on the glass. The aroma has diacetyl up front with some bready malts and saltiness. The taste is loafy malty, earthy and little licoricy. The mouthfeel is thin and the finish is pretty intense. This was my first altbier so I cannot really say how it compares to others, but it seemed a lot like a German dunkel lager with a twist.

ThirstyBird (1589) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2013
Well - finally getting around to rating this one. Pours a medium brown with orange highlights and a tight light tan head. Smell is lightly roasted malt, some fruit and maybe some nuttiness. Taste is as it tastes ending a bit dry. Body is light and a bit oily with a tick below average carbonation. Not bad, though not up to the standards of the Düsseldorf altbiers.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft in Dusseldorf. Clear deep amber small head. Aroma is caramel, grainy and some light noble hops. Flavor is rich malt, slightly sweet with some hop bitterness for balance. Medium body. Pretty good Alt, tasted fresh and solid all around.

allmyvinyl (3432) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2013
Pours brown with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel, bread, lightly fruity. This follows through on the taste with more maltiness than fruit though. Very clean, dry, balanced finish. Not bad.

Theydon_Bois (8759) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2013
Tap at Zum Alten Markt, Dortmund, 28/04/13. Clear chesnut brown with a decent sized beige head. Nose is dark malts, pinch of dark fruit, light toffee, a little thin. Taste carries more depth, toffee fudge, dark malt, brown sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate. Ok drinkable stuff but at the lower end of the Alt scale compared to the others we drank on this day.

kapusil (603) - HUNGARY - MAY 8, 2013
On tap. Reddish orange body, off-white head. Both the aroma and flavor are toasty and caramelly, but the taste has some fruity, grassy hop notes in it even with a hint of roastyness. Finish is rather bitter. Nice one.
