RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a small white head. Rich malty aroma with biscuit and bread, dried fruit and tropical sweet fruit. Malty and fruity flavour with a yeasty hint, herbal hops and a quite bitter finish. A bit thin for what the aroma is promising

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours caramelly amber with a slight haze. Fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, some caramel. Good citric and flowery hoppiness as well. A hint of toffee. Medium carbonation, good and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, lots of sweet maltiness, toasted, caramel, grassy. Long, lingering aftertaste with good toasted caramel and a good deal of bitterness. Really nice and very drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Red copper beer with almost no carbonation or head. But the aroma! Nice hops come out, which is surprising for a german brew. Taste is very complex wih a nice malty start and a lingering german hops finish, but everything is there very subtely. This is like the fine beer, very "racée" yet very fresh. Not bored at all...a big big thanks for the MaibockAddict himself .

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, best until 13.02.05. Dark amber color, small head. Vinous aroma with biscuit. Hoppy, very malty flavor. This beer has a good hop character, but that is cahllanged by the malt, the wine-like character and the biscuit and butterscotch flavors. World class beer!. Thanks Dortmunder, for providing me with this gem.

Black lager tastes and feels generically "wet" with some mild hoppiness. Pretty bland overall. Rated 8/3/09

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Bierkompass.de)
6 RIch brown mushroomy aroma. A little savoury
4 Lovely deep hazy brown, small tight light-beige head.
6 Massive grainy husky barky taste - coming in at the malt levels of a doppelbock, but without quite the same level of sweetness. Maybe a touch yeasty, as I let a bit of the sediment come over. Some gentle hops too, but they can’t compete with the malts.
3 Full palate, decent carbonation. Finish carries both the barky aspects from the taste and the gentle bitterness. Feels like it might be a little drying, but doesn’t end up that way in the end, it’s not too sweet or to resiny.
13 Probably my first real Dusseldorf Alt (after 5000+ beers), and maybe I should have aclimatised myself to the style with a normal strength one first. And after this, I’m well up for that - bring’em on. I’d quite happily have this again after having a range of other alts to rerate in context.
