zippermouth (35) - Newcastle, - MAY 11, 2005
4.8% cask at Spoons. Not the same beer as the one listed which is a filtered and bottled beer at 6%abv. Not that Im bothered. This is a dull beer. Not interesting in any way. Very light in the mouth. Strange off flavour like tinned oranges. Stale hops in the finish. Crap.

Alengrin (5087) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Dutch interpretation of the old Dsseldorf beer style, with off-white head and deep amber colour, aroma and taste fruity in onset, malty with hints of caramel and nuts as in a German Altbier, bit metallic, herbal hop bitterness in the finish.

Metalchopz (3310) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
Originally rated January 2006. Pours a golden colour with some copper in it. The fizzy white head has good retention and lace. Quite foamy and wavy, looks like mountains. Medium carbonation. Alcohol is really present in the nose, with some grain malt and hop bitterness. Oily mouthfeel. The taste is not bad though, but light (like all of their other brews so far). Slightly bitter, slightly dry, with a half chemical aftertaste and some metal. Not as bad as it sounds, but would rather try the cask version of this brew, at 4.8% ABV.

Bottle at the Post De Molen 30 beer breakfast bash ... copper thin lacing ... unpleasant musty nose ... sweet sugary lager.

Borresteijn (6783) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2010
30cl Bottle at In de Wildeman. This must be an aged example, because its not in production anymore, and lacks a body label. So no BB date. Clear amber colour, off white head. Aroma of thick sweet malts, toffee, a bit of fruits. Flavour is sweet, malty, toasted malts, caramel/toffee, a light vegetable note, a bit grassy and sweet finish. Medium bodied. Not so bad, but nothing like a German Alt.

dutchbeerpages (2403) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2009
smell of ash and oats with apple juice. Tastes a little like apple juice too with a slightly hoppy taste. Flavor isnt super but its refreshing and easy to drink.

Bottle. Brown and very malty with a medium body. Poured with a small had. A straightforward and pleasant example of this style.
