McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
Pours out in deep dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of nuts and torf. Taste of hops, leaves, woods, nuts and caramel. Medium bitter, light metallic finish. Not the best Altbier available but pretty decent and nice.

On tap @ Brisbane German Club which is highly recommended when attending the Test cricket at GABA next door (especially when your only choice of beer inside the ground is 4X Gold at $7.20 a plastic schooner!). This one pours reddish-brown with medium off-white head. Plenty of caramel malt sweetness up front on the nose with soft fruity hops and a touch of burnt sugar. Taste is prominent sweet malts with a light fruity hop bitterness to the finish. Eminently sessionable with clean palate, lightish body and easy carbonation.

darkseduction (630) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2013
Flasche 33cl. Solides Altbier mit knackigen Röstaromen und herzhafter Hopfung. Leider etwas charakterlos und beliebig.

Jado (575) - 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_ (779) - 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.

One of my favorite German beers - Tasty, sweet and nice appearence when You pour it the glass. Easy drinkable. Great for a sunny day.

ThirstyBird (1707) - 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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear copper pour with thin tan head, rich malty aroma, forward taste is malts backed up with caramel and raisins.
