Had it on tap at Zum Uerige. I had very high expectations for this beer but reality was not that good :( Slight caramel in taste, moderate bitterness in the end - that’s all that I can say. But place is great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: roasted sweet malt, grain, notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, and banana. As it warms some light smoke and grassy hop shows through.
Flavor: like the nose but the grassy bitter hop quickly attacks and grassy bitterness dominates the finish.
Comment: the hops have not integrated with the malt; clearly very young (2/2013 made on date and a 2/2014 drink by date). Active carbonation and very firm bitterness. The hops come across as an almost amateur home brew. I would wait for at least 6 months before trying again. This bottle was reefered so it’s not a problem with storage conditions.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (bottled a week ago!). Brown clear. Brown malty, good nutty nose with some greeny hoppiness. Body is quite smooth. Bitter, with some hoppy flavours, but mostly rich, a bit bready, brown/butty maltiness. Clean, refreshing. Really nice and fresh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from M&D. Probably my first altbier and it remains a style I just don’t understand (probably because i am a stupid American). Slightly toasty, some caramel, dark fruits. Roasty, fruity, malt driven beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml fliptop bottle (One Pint Pb, Helsinki)
Nice dry malty aroma. Looks brilliant - dep red, hige frothy head. Quite weird in the mouth, lots of wood, but strange wineyness, Touch of ginger in the aroma. Crisp palete. Quite active carbonation. Lots of dry earthy hops, maybe soapy, but not in a bad way. Actually quite bitter and sharp, acidic with hop resins. Love the ginger aroma! Prefer the previous bready alt but this is great to.
