Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2005 Reading Beer Festival. Very average beer that tasted like a poor quality pasteurised bottled bitter. Very boiled malt flavour with tuck shop sweets. Suprised to see it rated this high.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
Tap@Reading BF. Really nicely dry and nutty, malty, light bready malts. Finishes bitter, with some herbal qualities, really lovely well balanced alt. Clean, nutty and bitter.

Hazy brown with a lasting tan head. Malty, quite sweet but well balanced with a decent bitter finish. Medium silky smooth mouthfeel. Malty toffee aroma. Tasty stuff!

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - APR 23, 2005
Very nice head, tight but slightly fading. Excellent showing of the hops, very crisp bitterness that dances with the malt. The color could be a little sharper, less hazy but it doesn’t hurt the beer. If you can find it, it is worth the price and the bottle it comes in.

jerohen (2054) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2005
Dutch Ratebeer gathering. Clear orange coloured, big head. Very distinct aroma, not sure what it is though. Malty and pretty bitter flavour.

skortila (4712) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2005
Aroma of spicy hops. Clear, amber coloured with a thin, white head. Decent, smooth taste of roasted malts and good hops. Smooth palate.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2005
Hazy and a dull red with lots of floaters and a creamy off white head. Tart and caramelly aroma with some banana and plum. Big in body but dry in finish. Bitter and sour with some toffee, malt and vanilla. I think my bottle may be past its due date.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2005
Herbal yoghurt aroma. Light brown color, greyish head, good lace. Light sweet, bitter, herbal and a almost creamy feeling. Great Alt!

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2007 2007-04-17, 7-5-7-3-14=36
Elegant aroma, subtle hops with the caramel. It’s served too cold, the mouthfeel is a bit too dry and the bitterness too high, at the end.

From wooden cask, at the bräuhaus, 2005-04-04, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful dark amber color; creamy head. Malty aroma, with some malt; later (the temperature...) it develops a very nice (but quite light) hop note. Maltier example than others in Düsseldorf, with loads of caramel, very strong bitterness, partially aromatic. Very strong taste, powerful brew. Less hoppy than the Zum Schlüssel.
