PalCabral (122) - - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dirty grayish-brown with a wheat-induced head that settles as a fine layer on top of the beer. But it’s not a looker. The aroma is discretely fruity. The taste is the let down. Unbalanced bitterness brings a sour overtone to the beer. It drags out to a long sour aftertaste that makes you want to wash the beer down with another beer. Disappointing.

Bottle sample at Beer and Beyond shop. Thanks DSG. Murky mocha colour with white head. Dust, then grain, then leafy, dark green vegetables in the nose, bitter, fresh and tangy in the mouth. Light body, slightly dry finish with an aftertaste of sunflower seeds.

Little cloudy copper red to red brown beer, big aery beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: malty, grains, hay, some caramel, bit sweet. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, some sweet malts, bit of caramel, nice refreshing fruity notes. Aftertaste: bit metallic, very dry and bitter, citrus, bit grassy, nice hoppy ending.

DSG (6105) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Erzengel for this bottle! Three weeks old bottle. Murky light brown. Vegetal aroma with some malt, a bit of fruitiness and decent noble hops in the background. Slightly sweetish flavor with some malt, a caramelly hint, light fruitiness, yeast and pleasant noble hops with mild bitterness. Medium-bodied. Slightly too yeasty but quite nice.

Bamsen78 (3224) - 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!

olsvammel (3278) - 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.

kiwianer (3340) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 18, 2014
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 (2428) - 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 (5030) - 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.
