4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank it side by side with the normal Alt from Uerige. This one is more my style, even if Alt isn’t really my style at all. In any case, this one had more everything which can sometimes backfire, but in this case it made it better. Sweeter but more bitterness, more hop aroma, still a hint of fruitcake or something, but the other bits kinda balance it out. If I ever found myself in Dusseldorf, I would probably drink one or two of these before I started to think about Kölsch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taste was sweet, full bodied and rich. Caramel color with a smallish head. Nice and malty with medium hop bite. Finish was very clean and I wish I had another.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing.
Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread.
Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt.
Medium body, lightish co2.
Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.

Grainy sweet bready malt and light fruit. Decent beer but not my favorite style.

"Musty aroma of malt, fruit-mainly raisins and figs, good looking with huge head and everlasting lacing. Semi sweet, lightly roasted and hopped. Very pleasant Caramel aftertaste."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 ounce bottle from ABV. Pours a dark copper color, almost ruby, with a medium white head. A sweet nose of berries and toffee. A sweet malty base, dusty at times, big robust fruit, a bit of blueberries, a bit of cherries, some metallic bitterness, toffee, some light leaves. Pretty awesome. This, drink a liter I could. Awesome brew.
