Mackeon (69) - - JAN 26, 2015
An outstanding example of the Düsseldorfer beer style. Lovely aroma, beautiful reddish color and subtle Hallertauer hops, altogether a very harmonious brew well worth seeking out. Love those old-fashioned swing-tops, too, and the stylish label is a good example of traditional design, fitting well with beer and bottle both.

Clear darker ruby, big light brown lacing foam head. Light caramel aroma, some nut and toast notes. These Alt’s have a peculiar aroma. Spicy taste, light caramel, some bread. (Velp 201501)

ruigo (1293) - PORTUGAL - DEC 9, 2014
50cl bottle two weeks out of date. Clear brownish amber colour with a nice off-white head. Caramel, toffee, malt and dried fruits in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more on the sweet side with light bitterness. Overall, a very good beer. Probably the best Alt I had so far.

Beerhunter111 (8701) - Hasborn, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2014
Leicht dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit viel weißem Schaum, der stabil ist und sich lange hält. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, florale Aromen. Geschmack leich röstmalzig mit etwas Karamell, im Mittelteil dann hopfig bitter, unangenehm metallisch, zum Abgang hopfig würzig.

Een helder amberkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Aroma is nootachtig. Karamel in de mond, hoppige afdronk met lichte bitterheid.

Calisky (1204) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from trade with McTapps Couleur caramel sombre, mousse qui disparait. Nez caramelisé, note beurrée.. Gout caramel un peu grillé, bonne amertume, note noisettes, forte carbonation. Fin longue caramel, un peu de levure. Pas mal!
