COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein besonderes Jahr. Ein besonderes Alt! Voller Stolz stellen wir Ihnen anlässlich unseres 175-jährigen Bestehens zum 01. Mai 2013 das neue Familienmitglied der ältesten Hausbrauerei Düsseldorfs vor. Unser Jubiläumsaltbier ›1838er‹ wird mit erlesenen Zutaten und viel Liebe zum Detail von unserem dynamischen und kreativen Brauerteam mit 5,0% Alkohol gebraut. Die spezielle Auswahl an Gerstenmalzen und exklusiven Aromahopfen verleiht dem neuen Glanzlicht unseres Hauses seine dezente Bittere sowie sein sensationelles fruchtig-prickelndes Hopfenaroma. Ein Feuerwerk der Geschmackssinne – Prost!

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!

Tayeth (304) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2014
Sehr angenehmes Zitrusaroma, zudem Malzduft. Geschmack ist dann auch stark durch den Aromahopfen geprägt. Schon rund.
