kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle from Düsseldorf. Hazy copper body with light particulate. Creamy, off-white, sticky head. Floral hops in the nose followed by light toast and bready yeast. White grape flavor and some caramel on top of mild, lightly browned biscuit. Doughy yeast is very mild and hops don’t come through as much here. Medium body with light-medium carbonation. Good malt presence, but pronounced bitterness, just as in the draft/filtered version. Lingering yeast and faint malt. Quite good, but flavors are a little more muddled than in the filtered version.

Koelschtrinker (14073) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Leichter Malzantrunk, etwas hefig. Schnell wird das Bier herb und deutlich bitter, was sich im Mittelteil noch ausweitet. Das Ganze ist zwar aromatisch, das Malz geht dabei aber in Teilen unter, besser: es ist nur noch randlich vorhanden. Süßer werdend, die Bitterkeit kommt wieder etwas hervor, gleichzeitig schmeckt es wenig rauchig. Hefig-bitter zum Ende, was auf Dauer einen gewissen Störfaktor darstellt. Der Hopfen wird durch die Bitterkeit leider weitestegehnd verdeckt, ansonsten hätte er ein hohes Potential. 6/8/9/8/10/8

inbirraveritas (1392) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 13, 2010
0.5 l fliptop from an Uerige shop in Düsseldorf. It shows a dark amber with a fine pored, laceing, off-white head on top, the carbonation’s average. It smells malty, fruity with caramell notes in the back. The start is moderate crisp, the taste is sweet, flavour’s fruity (pear). The middle is primely of citrus/resin hops, then of caramell/roasted malt. It finishes citric, tiny harsh and dry which remains at last in a spicy aftertaste. An interesting Alt with a medium body and a light sticky texture.
