Being brought up on Altbier I cannot be regarded as 100% objective, But this is one of the top Altbiers in Düsseldorf (the only place to find the real deal). Good to drink from the bottle (now available in handy 0,33l bottles), best of course from the tap in the brewhouse. kraddel (8864) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2017
Tap at the brewpub. Pours medium clear, very dark copper. Good white head, very stable and fluffy. Smell is malty, caramelly. Taste is sharp, rather bitter , not newrly as malty as expected. Bit metallic , mild grassy to herbal notes from the hops, but not a hoppy beer. Ok japppp (174) - FINLAND - AUG 13, 2017

tonyferrari (33) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2017
Served on tap. Clear copper colour. Thick lasting off-white foam. Slighty herbal aroma. Malty and roasty flavour slightly overwhelmed by the bitterness. A bit of a harsh aftertaste which makes the 4.5% Abv seem higher. Medium-light body and medium-low carbonation. A good altbier. phfyysik (1425) - Tartu, ESTONIA - AUG 4, 2017
0,5l bottle, ABV 4,8. Pours clear caramel brown with medium thick off-white head. Aroma is raw liver, meat market, floor cleaning cloth, old water, some old vegetables, potatoes. Taste is caramel, some sourness, light grass, flat, some tropical fruits, mango, citrus. Good taste, but bad aroma. tanobicho (23) - Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2017
