2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the Great British Beer Festival, 3 August 2006. Hazy amber colour. Rather pale for an Altbier. Chewy, slightly musty malt aroma. Sweetish and fruity on the palate. Not a very typical Altbier and nothing too special either.

Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of pivnizub. A top notch Alt. Mindblowingly pleasant. Complex. Faintly salty. A lot better than Uerige Alt. Thanks a lot pivnizub for this gem!

1 litre bottle. Reddish brown with a good white head. The aroma is a very malty and sweet. The taste is sweet and malty with a bit of sourness in the middle. Very good balance of flavors. Other flavor notes are caramel, jasmine, vanilla, and even a meaty sweetness. It is clean and smooth and very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Orange-copper, clear beer with small off-white head, fast gone. Fine roasted malts aroma; nice, with a bit of ureum, but very discreet. Roasted malts, toast, with just a touch of hops. Warming up, quite some sulphur. Slight syrupiness, despite fine mineral water quality. Nice, but just to discreetly hopped - certainly in comparison to the Uerige hopexplosion. Then again, their Latzen...

Draught. Medium high creamy and lasting head. Clear amber to brown golden body. Caramel honey aroma. Pretty sharp hops bitterness dominates the flavor, a bit of caramel can be spotted. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity from the wood at brewery and the Altstadt tied house. Pale copper with an off white head. The lightest of the local Alts but just as flavoursome. All the roundedness of a well lagered german beer with the fruitiness of an ale and good fresh ascertive hoppage. An amazing session beer and never to be rated on a sip.

Honey grassy aroma, nice sweet honey malts with a lot of noble hoppy grassy aromas. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Very nicely balanced, caramel malts with loads of grassy hop bitterness, with hints of a nutty flavor as well. very earthy hop flavor. A great Altbier!!!!!
