At GBBF as ’Schumacher alt 1838’, seemed to be served from a wooden cask. Dark brown, cloudy, small bubbly off-white head. Aroma is molasses, slight vinegar. Body is medium, soft carbonation. Taste is metallic, malty and yeasty with a sweet, fruity edge. OK.

On draft at Schumacher Golden Kessel in Dusseldorf. Dark red-brown with a creamy foam head. Smooth, light and surprisingly hoppy, with grapefruit - tastes quite American. This was really good.

1l Flasche. Hellbraunes Bier mit fester beiger Schaumkrone, Riecht nach Pfirsichen. Dies wird im Geschmack am Anfang auch bestätigt, gefolgt von Vanillearomen und dem typischen Malzgeschmack für ein Altbier.
Das beste Altbier das ich kenne!

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Erzengel for this bottle! 4 weeks old bottle. Clear deep amber-brown with a beige head. Lovely aroma full of noble hops - herbal, floral and a bit citric, malt, toast, a bit of nuts and a bit of caramel. Flavor has some nice maltiness, a bit sweet, with toast, a bit of nuts, a bit of caramel and light fruitiness, continues dry with lovely herbal, floral and slightly citric and spicy hops. Rounded mouthfeel. Great and very quaffable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Same glowy, slightly hazy amber as the regular. Aroma is hoppy, lots of citrus. Tastes yummy, lots of hops, full bitterness. Balanced by earthy, caramelly malts. So - regular alt with American dry hop? Seems like it. A positive development to be sure. Point off if you let it warm a touch of diacetyl comes out.
