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 %

Well, I suppose if I wrote comments about Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf, they wouldn’t be neutral. I just love the Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf. They are simply next to none. So, I judge all the beers from "Altstadt Duesseldorf" equally.

jaszymku (140) - POLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Pięknie wygląda, klarowny ciemny bursztyn, stosunkowo gęsta duża piana, opadła do kilku milimetrów z ładnym osadzaniem. W aromacie słodowo, chlebowo, może odrobina tradycyjnych chmieli. W smaku podobnie, pełne, zbalansowane, z umiarkowaną goryczką. Solidny alt z dusseldorfu.

Shain (112) - ISRAEL - APR 18, 2015
Bottle, 330ml. Pours medium-dark reddish brown, head is short and cream colored. Aroma is strong and pleasant: sweet ripe fruit, malt, and some bready notes. Mouth feel is slightly creamy with quite a thin body and gentle carbonation. Tastes very dry, just the slightest sweetness at finish. Slight hoppy bitterness. Flavors are gentle, with some fruity hop, medium roasted not sweet malt, slight yeasty-alcoholic notes. Flavors are very balanced but somewhat flat, they are very gentle, quite boring even. This is a beer to drink slowly over a good launch.

Bill Becker (536) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a clear dark copper with a 1" head of foam. Smell is malty, earthy hops, nutty. The taste surpasses the pleasant smell. A kind of earthy and spicy hop thing going on with a nice nutty sweet ish malt presence. Smooth and tasty with a nice mouthfeel and I reckon I am drinking a fine Alt indeed.

McSherman (313) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 13, 2015
Schöne goldbraune klare Farbe. Sehr angenehmer Geruch: Malz, leicht geröstet. Im Mund zeigt sich eine unerwartete Bitterkeit, die gut mit dem Röstmalz harmonisiert. Insgesamt ein gutes Bier!
