fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2005
From wooden cask, at the bräuhaus
Beautiful amber color; nice creamy head. Very nice aroma of malt and hop. Good body structure, quite malty, easily drinkable, very nice hoppy notes. In the end the caramel is more evident (while getting warmer); long final (some sweetness, hoppiness and caramel). Well balanced, maybe too cold.

My 9900th Rating. Draught @ Schlussel, Dusseldorf. Pours ruby copper with a creamy white head and lacings. Fruit, caramel, grain, rye-bread, tobacco and hops. Smooth and dry. My fav. Alt in Dusseldorf. No question.
