Tap @ Im Golden Kessel, Düsseldorf. Pours a slightly paler dark red brown than Uergie’s. Large bubbled head with some yellowish brown to it. Aroma is fairly mild. Taste is somewhat fruity, dark malt, slight herbal, light earthiness. Dries up on the finish. Definitely a different take than Uerige.

Old rating, on cask at Schumacher Oststr. Smooth nice malty beginning. Not as deep as their normal Alt. Round and smooth with a round and fresh malty dark body. Nice high level of bitterness, intense malty with a not too thin but nice refreshing bitter malty aftertaste.

Tap (Schumacher, Dusseldorf)
A bit of a letdown after the Alt. Still bready and nutty, but less hoppy. A bit sweeter, and some minerally aspects. Light palate, drinkability very high. Finish dry and a bit woody, but lacking the character of the previous beer, too much minerally water.

Tap (Schumacher, Dusseldorf)
Mahogany, large bready head. Head tastes utterly delicious, Super fruity aroma. Refreshing palate. Amazingly fruity taste, nutty too, a bit woody. Absolutely lovely brew, attenuation perfect, hopping gently metallic and vapoury in the finish, some dry nuttiness too. Makes you want another one, which is the best thing a beer can do.

Draught at the brewpub. Just ad pillowy soft as the basic Schumacher, a bit less bitter. And above all, exceedingly fruity, with strawberries followed by cherries. Together with the aroma hops this creates an impression of vanilla scented cherry pipe tobacco. Very well structured and harmonic. Excellent stuff.

1 l bottle from De Bierkoning, bottled in November 2015 (4 days old !). Clear, amber with a medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy, slightly resiny aroma of candied orange, apricot jam, caramel, hay and hints of pine. Sweetish, fruity-grassy taste of orange, caramel, nuts, hay and minimal hints of pine, followed by a short, medium bitter and grassy-hoppy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Superbly balanced, highly drinkable and refreshing Altbier. I expected the hops to shine even more but this beer remains true to its style. Very decent stuff.

1l Swing Top Bottle. Krachla wystrzelila chucznie i ze sporym dymkiem. Piwo już od samego początku ma wyczywalny chmielowy aromat. W smaku dominuje goryczka która osiada na dalszej części podniebienia, nasuwają mi się skojarzenia z herbata, jakimiś ziolami oraz oczywiście niewielka slodowoscia jak na altbier. Troche karmelu i miodu ale niewiele bo zdominowal te wrazenia chmiel i bardzo przyjemnie ciagnacy się goryczkowy finisz. Polecam te klasykę.
