(330 ml swing-top bottle: Obtained in trade with jasonp, thanks Jason!) Gorgeous bottle, and a gorgeous beer. The amber body is fairly hazy on the pour, but not hazy enough to prevent me from seeing the dark particles suspended in the beer. A creamy, off-white head rises to over an inch in height, and very slowly diminishes to a thin but stiff and persistent layer. The nose on this beer is actually less aromatic than expected, and it’s grainy and grassy. Somewhat of a grainy maltiness in the flavor as well, with a fairly prominent hoppiness that seems fairly grassy. Light-medium in body, clean and fairly crisp. Pretty nice beer, but nothing special to me.

pivnizub (9724) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle: Amber coloured, big fluffy head, sticking to the glass; besides some fruitiness caramel malts and floral hops in the nose; quite strong dry and bitter flavour; long lasting, very aromatic dry hoppy finish. Who likes first-class hops, will love this german Ale ! Extremely well quaffable, extremely moreish.......

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled - St Albans BF - A mid brown coloured beer with an off-white head and some lacing. The aroma is nutty and malty as is the taste which is dryer than expected. A good alt.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Dark copper colour with beige head. Nice malt/hop balance. Bit of herb. Very drinkable. Bit spicey and harsh in mouth with very dry finish. Bit over carbonated but a nice alt beer. 3.4out of5.0 On draught from the barrel at the brewpub in Dusseldorf. Lovely brown amber, thick lasting beige head. Some hop malt on aroma. But the hop on the finish is excellent. Thats good in the mouth, but better hop on finish. The bitterness is really superb. Some toffee in mouth, but the hop finish is stunningly tasty. Balanced, but good. Herby hop finish.

Bottle Courtesy of dortmunder. Thanks!
BB 28.09 Red/amber. Nice rich head. Very strange but interesting aroma. Celery salt? Onions? Ginger? Cumin? I don’t know. Maybe all of the above. Very hoppy as well, and borders to an American microbrew in character. Very full and very nice. Lots of hops but still lets the charamel malts through with a balanced sweetness. Hübsch!

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

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 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.
