Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan, handbottled fresh beer. It is red-golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, flower and hints of oranges. The flavour has notes of butterscotch, malt, fruit and hints of oranges. It is an uncomplicated and OK altbier.

kappldav123 (4723) - GERMANY - DEC 11, 2008
The bottle looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass lighter than exspected. Copper-coloured. Starts spicy and strong, modest dry. Finish a bit woody. Very drinkable and good Alt.

darkseduction (582) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2008
One liter fliptop. Copper coloured brew with stable head. Hoppy nose, slight roasted grain smell. Slim malty body, massive hops but a great assembly. Refreshing, longlasting and delicious hop finish. Great brew!

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 26, 2008
One liter fliptop bottle: poured orange with a large fluffy beige head. Light hop aroma with a bit of malt, light roastiness. Mild bitter hop flavor initially, picking up in the finish. Nothing blows me away with this beer.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 On draft at the brewpub. Amber coloured, fair head. Malts and hops, some grainy notes. Dry finish. Not very good, but on the other hand: i had a Schlüssel just before.

CROchamp (10) - USA - MAY 17, 2008
One of the less bitter-more drinkable strictly "local" Alts. Amber and somewhat reminiscent of some porters. Joy to find (by far not as big as Diebels or Frankenheim, but luckily a lot more available than Duessel or Schluessel).

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
From the barrel at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardeners, Lambeth 16/5/08. Deep amber with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of fruity malt, earthy hops and a hint of caramel. Flavour was bitter, with more fruit and grassy hops, some green herbs and a touch of wood, before a light, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Draught at the Battersea Beer Festival, 7th Feb 2008. Amber with a good head. Aroma is a mix of German hops and wet socks but the flavour is a nice mix of woody and malty notes with some herbs as well. It really fills the mouth and has a long lingering finish. Quite different from other German beers I’ve tried. My notes say "German Real Ale?"

Finn (4033) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2008
Draught at Battersea Beer Festival 8 Feb 08. Golden colored. No head. Modest fruity aroma. Sourish roasted flavor. A dry "heavy" malty aftertaste developing.
