bottleman (14) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, - JAN 14, 2010
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 %

jaszymku (109) - 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 (109) - 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 (508) - 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 (275) - 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!

solidfunk (4979) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Easy to drink and nice beer all around. Not quite the best as some of ueriges other entries but still very nice. Pours cloudy brown with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish with lots of sharp grain. Bottle.

Tarosama (58) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
I had this beer at Uerige in Dusseldorf. Typical Dusseldorf style alt beer. Nice creamy head with good retention. Fruity and nicely balanced aroma. Hop kicks in at the end. Nice session beer.

Honestly not the best to end on, but I ain’t running this shit, mother fuckers. On top of that, I had to drink the Schenkerla Rauchbier Märzen right before.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a big off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt and earthy hops. Sweetish malty flavors with fruity and herbal notes, pleasant hoppy bitterness, long finish. Medium bodied,slightly dry mouthfeel. Decent.

Bottle from McTapps, many thanks. Aroma malty, caramel, yeasty. Clear brown colour. Taste is same as aroma, basementy yeasty, light caramelly yeastiness. Rather high bitterness, minor hoppy notes. OK for the style.
