Von pivinizub gespendet. Keiner ist so klasse wie er. Das Bier jedoch hält sich in Grenzen. Im Grunde ein solide Hochklasse-Alt. Etwas malzig, ein wenig im Hopfen und die Bitterkeit eher derb als ausgewogen. Nett.

Bottle from Pivnizub - thank you so much, Günther! The Latzenbier pours out in a deep dark brown, light hazy, colour with steady head and medium to smooth body. Nice aroma of malt and nuts. Tasteof mild hops, roasted barley, nuts, torf, leaves and dried grapes. Some light dusty-malty finish with light sour hints. A very nice Altbier indeed - easy to drink, refreshing and very solid brewed.

1L bouteille @ RBBWG III, thanks ThirstyBird. Bottled on 19-12-2013. Cuivrée col beige crémeux. Arôme est malté sur un léger caramel le tout sur qcq notes houblonnées nobles oscillant sur un léger citronné. Palais reste malté, pointe caramel et crystal, amertume légère et noble avec ce caractère très allemand dans la levure. Amertume et houblonnage restent discret.

1000 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to ThirstyBird. About two months old. Pours a reddish caramel copper little head. Nose is sweet, iron, leaves, caramel, touch sugary. Taste is sweetish, bitter herbs, caramel, bitter herbs, leaves brown sugar. Easy to drink. Metallic alt body. Sadly this one feels like it has clearly peaked a while ago.

aleigator (220) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle from Schumacher Brauerei. Nice white head, which looks really delicious. Mild aroma of fruits, berries, plums and chocolate.Color is much brighter, compared to the "Uerige Sticke", of rich deep bronze, red and brown. Deep chocolate, caramel, raisins, wood, roasted toast flavours, paired with burned malts, very refreshing, dry and hoppy finish, never missing a nice, strong malt backbone. Finish adds complexity to it, because of the still lingering malt. Finish is very long, a bitter taste is still there. Very different compared to the "Uerige Sticke", much milder, deep and complex malt body, lovely.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
Ein richtig leckeres, malzig-herbes Bier. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, leicht säuerlich. Im Hauptteil breiten sich die Röstmalz- und Hopfenaromen schön im Mund aus. Der Nachgeschmack ist relativ herb-malzig mit einer leichten Süße. Auf der Zunge verbleibt eine sehr angenehme, malzig-herbe Note. Eins meiner Lieblingsaltbiere - schade, dass es das nur dreimal im Jahr gibt!
Test vom 31.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,15,13,13,12,15 - 13,95
