lovibond (115) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2011
At the brewery, 123 Oststr. Served in a 25cl Altbier tumbler. It may be a small serving, but its sensory delights more than compensate. Brilliant clarity; a little on the light side for typical Altbier, but this is one of the places where the Altbier style was defined! Creamy, long-lasting head. Aroma of resiny, herbal, even a little grassy, hops, hops, hops, with malt right behind. Phenomenal taste: extremely clean bittering, but massive dose of iso-humulone makes its presence felt mid-mouth and even a bit in the back. As in aroma, malt elegantly supports flavor. Finish is dry, and aftertaste is primarily of noble-type hops. A masterpiece!

#4 Eine echte ALT Bier Ikone aus der Düsseldorfer Altstadt, die ihresgleichen sucht! Blank & kupferfarben, hopfig & blumig-malzig im Aroma und dann dieses unglaubliche FRISCHE!! Perliger Antrunk, frisch malziger Geschmack und staubtrocken mit echtem Aromahopfen im Abang! Irresistible stuff!

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2011
On draft at the brewery. Deep amber/copper body is clear with a 2" frothy, off-white head that lasts and looks like a dessert. Faint, biscuity malt with a low hop presence in the nose. Flavor is rich and toasty with a bit of a roast flavor. Faint noble hop spice. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Fairly bitter, but still with good malt presence. Bitterness lingers through the finish. Quite tasty!

super, bardzo dobre,świeże, 30 dni ważności (niepasteryzowane), Bardzo silna goryczka przechodząca w gorzkawy smak w butelkach 1l więc spokojnie można obiecać żonie że wypijemy tylko 2 butelki

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
Tap at the brewpub in dusseldorf, pretty basic, very light, it had a typical alt flavours but it was pretty faint, kind of leaning on the macro side of things

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2011
Ein Altbier aus der 1-Liter-Flasche. Das trinkt man nicht mal eben so. Farblich schön in kupfer von dem der Schaum auch etwas mitbekam. Geruchlich schwach röstig, dafür mehr fruchtig und säuerlich. Auf der Zunge weinartige und fruchtige Züge zu denen sich ein Aroma nach Korken gesellt (das Bier war doch noch haltbar?!). Holzig - erst im Abgang entwickelt sich eine Bitternote. Eigenwilliges und seltsames Alt - nicht so ganz mein Fall.Test vom 14.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

On tap at the brewery. Hazy light brown with little head that retained. Sort of creamy with a lot of dark malts and grass notes. Interesting.

EdKing (2357) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Pours dark copper with thinish head. Nose is sweet malt and fruity hops. Strong taste of toffee malt and fruity hops. Fruity and dryish but thin in the mouth feel. Would prefer more body, as one would get in an English ale.
