As it is named after a freaky former owner of the brewery, it is the most polarising Alt in Düsseldorf. Wonderfull roughly taste, spicy, hoppy and malty at the same time. Many people like it, some hate it. I just love it.

Bottle(d) (on 03.09{05?]): yeasty, spicey hopped nose; pours with very little head over a burnt-copper body; I’m not catching much initially, but the bitter, fruity hopping pulls through eventually; some mild musty and earthiness and maltiness; moderate body; substantialy bitter and bone dry finish; a tad more maltiness would help alot, otherwise a quality brew from the fatherland.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Dark amber color, frothy off-white head. Malty aroma, moderately hoppy, with nuts as well. Chewy cookie sweetness as first, some berries, quickly taken over by a sharp bitterness and a nearly-burnt-toast edge. A little off-kilter and unbalanced, but different at least.

Brown Coloring with White Head. Grassy Aroma. Dusty Malt Notes...Some Hops Towards the End. Average Brew...Nothing Solidly Fantastic About it...

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of raisin and plum. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Pleasant, maybe a little too much yeast in the aroma for my liking (when I’ve had it on draught in Duesseldorf it seemed even more yeasty). Nice and toasty/crusty otherwise, though, with a nifty fruity character. Quite bitter, perhaps even to the point of being unbalanced. Good, not great.

Bottle dated 14 April. I’m spending my Super Bowl watching time enjoing this and <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/uerige-sticke/21 Sticke. I find this actually has more character. Pours a rocky head, which remains as chunks of foam on the sides of the glass. Deep copper in color, highly malty and hoppy smell. taste is of caramel malts, then a Super-size dose of German hops. It’s like a German IPA; the biggest smack of hops I’ve in a German beer. It’s a highly entertaining total beer experience.

WTF mate. Is this an alt? Other than the crazy bottle I don’t really know what to say. The hops/malt combo was pretty nice. It was vague where the malt stopped and the hops started.

badgerben (4777) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Dark amber color with a thin head. Dusty malt aroma. Quite a dry and bitter taste of malt. There’s not much more than that, but it’s good at what it aims to be.

This came in a nifty looking slim neck bottle with a swing top. This poured a murky brownish amber color with about 2 inches of off white head. As the head eventually dropped this left good sized sheets of lace all around the glass. The aroma was of a roasted grain and slightly sweet malt. There was a small earth toned hop presence that added to the scent to the scent as well. Taste was of sweet caramel malt backed with more doughy malt. Hops gave it a slightly bitter after taste. The taste was very clean and dry which left you wanted more each time you took a sip. Pretty impressive taste for the size of the beer. Mouthfeel was medium with a nicely carbonated feel to it. This beer goes down very smoothly and would make a perfect sessionable brew. Having tried this has definitely peaked my interest in the style, highly recommended.
