On tap at the Brewpub. A bit hazy copper with a medium head. Aroma and taste of malt, light roasted malt, some fruit and light hops. Also some "medicine" in the finish. Sweeter than the typical Altbier.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1l bottle obtained at the Brauhaus.
Dark brown color and a frothy 2 fingers sized head whith a ok retention and leaves lacing. Full points for that one. Aroma: Light sour, fresh yeast, bread malts and caramel, red berries Taste: Lighter as the Alt also fresher still the dark bread and caramel malts, but now accompanied by red berries. Finnis is a more hoppy bitterness. Slick texture, creamy foam, medium body ( but thinner as the Alt)and soft carbonation. Slightly to thin body.
I like them both, but at the end of the day I would pick the Schumacher Alt over the 1838-er. This one does smell nicer.
Beer Rating 1000.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Schumacher. Slightly hazy copper/amber with a medium off-white hea and heavy lacing. Aroma is really expressive with toasted malt, caramel, nice frutiness and minerality, light sweetness, nice whiskey notes and light spiciness. Taste is very similar, but even more cohesive. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Light fruity finish. Super tasty and complex Altbier. Good drinkability too. By far the best Altbier that I had in Düsseldorf!

Sehr angenehmes Zitrusaroma, zudem Malzduft. Geschmack ist dann auch stark durch den Aromahopfen geprägt. Schon rund.
