Aromatic, hoppy aroma. Very nice, hoppy flavor, malty, fresh with a nice hoppy touch. Very dry and bitter finish.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Couleur cuivrée, abondante mousse blanche concassée. Arômes épicés, légèrement fruités et pleins de nuances de caramel. Flaveurs de grains frais, de caramel discret et de noble houblon apportant une touche fruitée et épicée. Le niveau d’amertume semble supérieur à celui des autres Alt produits ici, à Düsseldorf. Dangereusement facile à boire. Servi en fût, Uerige, voyage Europe 2005

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2005 Beautiful copper color and sweet aroma but I did not like the taste of this beer. It was very bitter and left my mouth feeling dry. I like bitter hoppy beers, but this was just way too much bitterness. Very cool bottle though.

Yep, that is the bottle. Poured a deep rediah brown with small head. Aroma was caramel and some malts. The mouth feel was missing something, but great bottle.

Package alone gets perfect score from me- what a great bottle. Alt is a new style for me, but I ma starting to dig them. This one has a lot of malt and a really nice fizzy mouthfeel. A tiny bit burnt, but forgiveable.

Head goes quickly. Nearly clear bronze color. Very smooth. Starts bitter then smoothens right out with sweetness at the end with some modulations between sweet and bitter at the tail. Complex in taste trail.

MoBev distributing. Initial aroma from the swing top bottle is lemons. After opening up in the glass, the aroma is soggy malt and hops, like a homebrewers kitchen. A little later, slight caramel. Deep bronze color. Cavernous lace from the head. Flavor of light crisp malt and a dry hop, back of the throat bitterness. Given the intense presentation, I was slightly dissapointed.

A good example of an alt, maybe slightly off-style but not by much. Predominantly malty but a crisp hop finish ends it well. Still prefer Sticke and especially DoppelSticke, but this is a good choice more in the direction of a session beer.

11 August 05 Uerige Alt. (Very Cool) Bottle. In my Maudite tulip, the head is large and large-bubbled; rather quickly forms a thick coating on top, w/ little islands here and there. Nice lace throughout. Color’s a bit odd, kind of a mix between a light burnt sienna and a ruby orange. Even in the tulip, aromas are hard to pick out. Kinda damp and dusty. Some wet dog. Is this really German? Seems more like a cross, oddly, between certain Belgians and Brits. Not to stereotype, but the Belgian aspects are nice (e.g. candi-ish), and the British elements are not so nice (e.g. stale bottled beer that probably wasn’t meant to be bottled). Some burnt flavors as it warms.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 Bottle at Crescent Moon Alehouse, Omaha: Orange-red with a thin head. Sugary-alcohol aroma. Sugar-malty flavors. Almost too thin a body. Almost a Belgian-type character in the guise of the Altbier label. Rerate of a bottle in Virginia: This one got a nice bit rocky head with some sediment. Otherwise, consistent with first rating.
