4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
For me this is the best of its type. Dry, malt finish, You need to drink at least three, 0.25ml "becher" to develop the palate. Many find this "Ale" a little overpowering compared to the other Duesseldorf and Krefelder Alt beers. Draught is always superior to bottled or even a five litre tin barrel if you can get it?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The fucking book. The pour is a darker ruby tinted brown color with a huge cream colored head that falls slowly leaving a pretty soapy lace. The aroma is much grainier than I was expecting. There is a sweet malt and an interesting chocolate happening that I’m not overly fond of. The it’s dry and powdery. The flavor is sweet and metallic. There is a light malt and a little fruit present. It’s just sweet malt and metallic lager yeast. There is a hint of dirty earthy hop. Damn. The mouth feel is thin and light with a bigger carbonation, but it’s still thin. The aftertaste is sweet and metallic malts. It’s not awful, but it’s not the best.
