NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Medium chestnut colored, thin head, lots of carbonation. Earthy malt and nutty aroma, like a cross between a dunkel and an English brown. Hazelnut and roasty malt flavors are quite distinctive, and intercepted by an adequate bitterness, touch of sourness. Light bodied, not as fizzy as expected, with a lingering finish. My first of the style, and I quite enjoyed it.

PietS (198) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2017
First time drinking an Altbier: nice combination of a classic pilsener taste with more body, more sweetness and a touch of spices. Malty, sweet, caramel, a bit spices and a hint of coffee/cocoa(?) The aftertaste is quite bitter and hoppy. Good combination and easy to drink.

TrefwoordPunk (1015) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle 3 cl. Pours a hazy amber with a medium off-white head and an aroma of roasted malts, bitter hops, toffeem and fish. The taste is slightly sweet with more hoppy and earthy complexities. Kind of nice.

aleigator (875) - GERMANY - NOV 28, 2016
Pours a brilliant hazelnut brown color with a big, froth, white head, which coats the glass the entire time. Smells of toasted rustic bread, a lactic tartness and sweet toffee malts creating a nice harmony on the nose. Drinks soft and light with a pleasantly effervescent finish. Tastes of toasty malts from the very beginning with lots of accompanying whole grain bread crust and a subtle toffee note. Sweeter during the midpalate with a glazed caramel peak, toned down by earth, bakers chocolate and a whiff of leaves. Finishes chocolaty wirh a pleasant dry note, together with earthen malts and an aqueous softness, after the effervescence has left the palate. Very nice, heavily relying on the malts, while producing a surprisongly unique, harmonious and intriguing flavor profile.

piwnepodroze (479) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Prezent od Kuby. Bardzo fajne, złożone, a przy tym lekkie piwo. Karmelowe, podpiekane i nieco orzechowe. Zbudowała się potężna i trwała piana. Spoko.

Clear dark brown body with huge off-white head. Aroma is iron, some cocoa powder and spices. Very toffee taste, sweet caramel, roasted notes. Watery, soft carbonated. Fine enough, great for a price.

Tap at Hajos in Rosheim. Rich fresh malt notes of nut, oak and flower. Molasses and fruit in the harsh finish. Plenty of bread and malt. Decent drink.
