Jonb5 (341) - Greater London, - FEB 11, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Dark bronze colour, one finger head which didn’t hang around very long, kept some lacing. Quite thick looking but not hazy. Initially there was no detectable aroma, some malt and vanilla came through towards the end. Tasted charcol and malt, was overly bitter in an unbalanced way that also killed all other flavours. Finish was bitter and slightly bready. Had a coarse edge, was well carbonated and the body was quite thick for the fairly low strength. Overall not one of the better beers out there, was just a bit unbalanced even though it mellowed slightly.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUL 3, 2014
An average alt. foamy head over a dark rust colored body Bready , nose. Taste was mild, not the assertive smoky, malty, yet bitter flavors I associate with my favorite alts

prawlie (1104) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Dark red-brown with a foamy head. Dry, bitter, slightly acidic. Indistinct malt and hop aroma. This is a fair alt, but not up to the same standards of some of its local cousins.

Scopey (6284) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Keg at Three Tuns, Brizzle. It pours deep amber-brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, fruit cake, raisin cocoa and caramel. The taste is bitter, earthy, brown bread, caramel, toasty, dried fruits, with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Drinkable and easy going. Decent enough, but not much depth.

Looks just like a mass produced bitter, and tastes like one too. Used to drink Alt beers when visiting family in Germany , my memory thinks they were better than this example.

tderoeck (4447) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
2/V/14 - 25cl tap @ Schweine Janes (Düsseldorf) - BB: n/a (2014-462)

Pale clear cola-like coloured beer, aery fizzy big bubbled beige head, also resembling cola, unstable, dissipates quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, grains, sugary, cow fodder. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: some caramel, sourish, bit lemony, sweet, caramel, grains. Aftertaste: surprisingly bitter, sourish, dry, grains, hay, cow fodder, not sweet at all. This brings back some memories. I used to dance on the tables at Knoten after the European Football League’s Worldbowl finals a few years ago... Now having the same beer just one block away from that same place. Pretty funny. :p Different times, different setting, different company. :-)

jjsint (652) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
500 ml bottle @ Bedford:Bamberg Spring Fest 2014. Colour is a ruddy amber/brown. Big ass beige head but that’s down to my drunk pouring. Chocolate malt aroma, slight undertones of metal and grass. Nutty bittersweet taste, simple but enjoyable. Long sweet finish. Warming palette. I don’t understand why this isn’t more highly rated. It’s never going to compete with impy stouts or quads but it’s tasty and moreish.

Russo (1650) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 10, 2014
Clear brown color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is malty and slightly roasted, notes of dark fruits. Flavor is like aroma but sweet like burned sugar. Medium carbonation and light to medium body with a light sweet bitterness finish.
