MarkoNm (663) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a clear light brown color with slight coppery undertone. The head is generous foamy and white. The aroma is very mild - some malts along with fruits. Perhaps there’s little caramel too. The taste is also mild and slightly sweet, finishing with nice little bitterness. A decent one again.

GreatDane1632 (439) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Rated from notes taken on 11 Sep 2011 -- Drank at Kickbacks in Jacksonville, FL. Big fan of this beer, alt’s intrigued me for a long time and I’m happy I was finally able to get a classic example of the brew.

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Light brown pour with a tight off white head and lace. A flat malt flavor, papery, with a touch of fruit, Flavor mirrors aroma plus a funky bitter, and peppery. Medium bodied and fizzy. A flavor and aroma that just doesn’t seem right to me maybe a day past its prime

ruigo (1158) - PORTUGAL - APR 21, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a clear brown colour with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, dry fruits and lightly hoppy. Average to soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is really bitter with some sweet notes. Overall, resembles a bitter English beer. Full of flavour and character.

ThirstyBird (1663) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
I’m embarrassed that I haven’t gotten around to rating this one though I drink it regularly....from a .5l bottle, pours a clear bright orange/brown color with a nice thick light tan head. The smell is some roasted malt, fruit, a earthy, hint of caramel and nice hop presence. The taste is tangy dry hops match up with fruit, toasted malt, hint of caramel ending wonderfully dry and slightly bitter.Light/medium in body with great finely constructed carbonation. One of my favs.

robinvboyer (3213) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, deep, copper pour, big, puffy, beige head. Dark, caramel biscuit, toasted cereal aroma with some grassy hops, and some floral fruit. The finish is quite bitter, and also quite fruity. Loads of great malts, toasted cereals, some nuttiness. Man, this is an Alt! Awesome stuff. Now i understand the description of german equivalent to an english ale.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2014
Backlog. On tap at The Green Lion Inn. My first Alt and still probably my favourite. A truly under-estimated beer-style.

Sparf (122) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Ganska svag doft med toner av söt malt, nötter och med bara en tendens till tjära. Litet inslag av frukt också. Vackert mörk färg som drar åt tegelrött. Ett tätt skum med helt ok varaktighet. Smaken är tydligt brödaktig och med en lite bränd ton. Något tunn kropp och tämligen mycket kolsyra. Eftersmaken biter i med en stadig och lite pepprig beska.
