Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy rich amber with airy but stable off-white head. Dusty aroma of yeast and hops, with touches of malt. Dusty, bitter flavour of hops, with estery notes and subtle malty touches. Bitter aftertaste. A decent, well-balanced Altbier!

Frovigalning (2694) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2014
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Sweet malty smell, fruity and some apples. Similar taste. Very cloudy and I got a feeling I got the bottom sediment in the glas.

Die Schaumkrone hält für ein Alt sehr gut, farblich hat es eine dunkle kräftige Altbierfarbe und ist trüb. Im Geschmack schön röstmalzig herb und malzig süß, hefig. Lecker, werde ich noch häufiger kaufen! Test vom 22.3.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,12,12,12,10,12 - 12,00

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Kupferrot, trüb mit ordentlich Schaum. Hopfig-hefiger Duft. Im Geschmack auch etwas Hefe neben den typischen Altaromen. Der staubtrockene Abgang fehlt mir. Wirkt dadurch etwas wie ein Kellerbier und kommt an das Original nicht heran.

kappldav123 (4588) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle looks very simple but really good. Beer in the glass dirty-brownish, nice head. Starts malty, earthy-yeasty, more and more moldy. Modest fruity-sourish. Finish unbalanced. Not my favourite.

Mit McTapps geteilt und als durchaus trinkbar befunden. Irgendwie ist mein Sinn fuer Alt-Biere nicht gerade geschaerft und am Ende messen sich alle mit Schluessel und dem 38er. So ist dieses hier also dumpfer als die Kontrahenten, etwas dicker und weniger frisch hopfig. Dennoch was Feines. Aber eben nicht so wie die Konkrurrenz.

McTapps (2997) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2013
Beer pours out in a light, very light, hazy cloudy colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of nuts and dark roasu hops. Taste of nuts, hops, torf, leaves and caramel. Very easy and nice to drink, enjoyed it.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle from Uerige @ Carsh-Haus, Düsseldorf; bottled 06.08 (I guess that means 2 months ago, 6th June 2013), bb 06.12
Hazy brown color with medium sized creamy head. Vulgar aroma, dirty water, dark malts, puke. Smooth mouthfeel; dry caramel flavor, some yeast flavor too; ordinary bitterness.
A dirty beer, losing all the elegance and freshness of a good Alt.

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2013
50cl fliptop, fresh from the source. Thanks ThirstyBird! This pours as a hazier, creamier version of their regular Alt and I wonder whether it is the unfiltered quality that clouds the typical Uerige leafy and herbal hop qualities here. Toasted, slightly sweet caramel malts remain dry and enjoyable, but the rich and creamy yeast profile does detract a bit from what I love most about this unique German equivalent to an ESB.

Douberd (1705) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle, 500 ml, poured into an alt type glass at home. Many thanks to ThirstyBird for this bottle! ABV 4.7% Light amber orange colour, hazy and muddy, with a big, light beige head on top. Very good retention, light lacing on the glass as I drink it. The body seems to clear after a while , becoming more transparent and revealing light activity in it. Aroma of malts, hay and straw. Not very appealing but not that bad either. Nice taste, slighty sweet at first, again with some hay in it, also a bit yeasty I suppose, some hops too. Mild bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation, very dry on the palate. Being unfiltered makes it of course different than what I am used to but overall quite good.
