eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Poured a cloudy brown-amber color with a nice head, that laced great the whole way down. Aroma was slightly spiced with a hoppy type scent (weak, though). I actually noticed some bubblegum too, while the flavor was mildly roasted malts with a peppery and bitter dry finish. Would love to get this on draft next time I’m in Dusseldorf / Krefeld area - it’s gotta be losing something on the way over here, fancy bottles or not. Re-rate: August ’06, a bit more crisp and fresh on tap at Uerige in Altstadt, displaying a bit more of the nutty alt aspects. Picked up on acidic and dryn mouthfeel. Hops are certainly the twist on this one within the Alt style, as this one is less balanced than most other alts. A nice beer, a nice alt, but not my preference in Dusseldorf or Krefeld (behind Schlussel, Fuchschen, and Gleumes, imo).

Draught. The pour is a brown-copper colour with a creamy off-white head and lacing that covers the entire glass. The aroma consists of caramel, rye bread, and hops. Flavour has those similar tasty malts and is very bready and oh so wonderfully hoppy. Very flavourful. This is a very drinkable session for sure and that’s really apparent in the brewpub. Tried this at the brewpub in Düsseldorf on May 26, 2006.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Copper in color with a dense white head. Amazing clean bitterness from start to finish, lingers bit is even throughout. Light hops and sweet malt underneath,tangy with a low carbonation.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Pours copper with shallow creamy froth. I can’t smell it. Light creamy nectar with residual effers. I can’t taste it. It’s like water. Like an English Cream Ale with a slight bittering. I liked it but very different and not what I drink beer for.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 8, 2006
On tap at the Brewpub. Light copper , nice creamy head , lighter nose , grainy malt , some smoky touch . Clean , but body seemed to be a bit thin . Decent alt that as it warmed up showed more of its complexity (served very cold)

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - APR 30, 2006
The very different bottle poured a medium amber colored slightly hazy beverage with a small creamy white head that was mostly diminishing but left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was primarily malty with a characteristic light, sweet, bread and cookie dough. There were notes of sweet yeast and earth in the background as well. The body was medium light with smooth carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor started off sweet but quickly turned quite bitter through the medium length finish.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2006
UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 [On tap at brewery] Clear amber/brown with a two-finger head. Spicey, hoppy aroma with malty notes of bread and grain. Firm and malty on the palate with a dry, assertive finish. Absolutely fantastic.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2006
Draught at the Brewpub. This is one seriously smokey pub. Aroma gives some seriously hoppy floural grassynesss, more than any of the other alts by far. Taste is grassy and bitter, oh so bitter. Served quite a bit colder than the other alts i noticed, but still drunk at the same silly speed, hehe!

Bottled On 14 04 Code 0515

Pours a well-hazed, melon/brown with a quick, eggshell-white head. Musty lemon-tea aroma with currant/raspberry. Strikingly bitter and earthen, like drinking cold, thin, mineral-laden soil. Very thin. Just when I was thinking this brewer was infallable...
