Well, I suppose if I wrote comments about Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf, they wouldn’t be neutral. I just love the Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf. They are simply next to none. So, I judge all the beers from "Altstadt Duesseldorf" equally.

Gangstergafje (312) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 The beer has a beautiful dark amber color and a slightly of-white layer of rough foam. The beer is crystal clear. The beer has a fresh smell. It has a nice amount of bitterness and a spicy touch. There is also a tiny refreshing sourness in the smell. The taste is equally nice. There is a nice little hoppy taste on the back of the tongue. Overall the beer has a lot bitternes. The beer gives a nice tingling sensation in the mouth. Really nice beer, I am gratefull i had the opportunity to try this one.

Bottle at thepeter’s leaving drinks. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is earthy, rich malts, wood, leather, toasty brown bread and cereal. The taste is lightly bitter, toasty, bready malts, cereal, toasty grain, touch of grass, wood and light caramel with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, balanced and very drinkable. Easy going alt.

ThirstyBird (2227) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
From the barrel at the source. Pours a clear, brilliant light amber with a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, licorice, herbs. The taste is roasted malt, herbs, crisp with a bit of sweetness to balance it. Light+ in body with nice fine carbonation.

RW80 (1324) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
1 l bottle Appearance: Dark brown color and a frothy 2 fingers sized head which lasts and leaves lacing. Full points for that one. Aroma: Lightsour, fresh yeast, bread malts and caramel, Some earthy tones and hints of banana. Taste: Is below moderate seeet and quite dry, decent bitterness. Tate is bready malts, some caramel,some toasted malts, grainy bread,with a trace of banana. Good bitter finish. Bready aftertaste. Slick texture, creamy foam, medium body and average carbonation. Good Altbeer, no tricks just pure refinement and cratmanship put this miles ahead of the big brewery supermarket stuff and clearly worth a drive to Dusseldorf if your 1,5 hour away. (The Autobahn is nice !)
