Das obergärige Spezial Alt wird aus Gersten,- Karamell- und Röstmalz gebraut. Es ist das an Bitterstoffen reichte Bier Deutschlands. Das bernsteinfarbene Bier duftet zart nach Malz, schmeckt trotz der Bitterkeit ausgewogen und verabschiedet sich mit einem zarten Rauchton. Ein perfektes Alt! Alkohol: 4,7 %

(On tap) Clear mid brown with big head. Subtle aroma with vegetable hop notes. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Good bitterness over a sweet toffee and nuts. Very nice.

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?

Bottle shared with koleminer20, for the book. Aroma is caramel, floral, earthy hops, sweet, potpourri. Appearance is darker amber brown, light tan head, hazy. Taste is balanced, caramel, earthy hops, metallic, sweet malt, very crushable. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, soft, earthy hop and caramel aftertaste. Overall, this is very true to style.

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.
