Amber color. Typical Alt caramel notes, but more strong on the hop side. Similarities to West coast pale ale but less fruity or sweet. Interestingly different. SinH4 (4709) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Bottle courtesy of King_Alex_II, beautiful clear copper color with big tan head. Aroma is slightly metallic, caramel, herbal. Taste is Kräuterbonbon, nutty, fresh, with an earthy-tangy sting. Medium carbonation. Surprisingly dry. Very dry. Easily drinkable. The prototypic Alt. vanillaringer (30) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2016
Bitter. Thin and light in the mouth. One-sided and not overly complex. Color is warm. Interesting Alt Bier, but not my style. Wim (3954) - Weelde, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2016

Grapefruit like lasting bitter aftertaste
Found it’sspecial in the bitterness in a good way.
cask. Clear amber with white head. Malt aroma. Sweet malt aroma, caramel, dry bitter finish One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Brown malt, bready, lite figs, fresh malty wort, not hoppy, rich pale malt. Hard to determine nationality. Clean fermx. Light mild chocolate. Bit of nuts and honey. Chalky, dry body. A lot less sweetness than a brown ale, lighter malt bill, but still robust in flavor. Wonderful head retention throughout, thick lacing after each sip. Slight banana-pudding like fruity esters as it warms. Husky, grain forefront flavor and mf. Finishes papery dry. Very drinkable. szeli (262) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Das ausbalancierteste Alt des TS-Day 2015, süffig.
Leicht fruchtig, dazu das Alt-typische Karamell.
Nachgeschmack sehr angenehm, trocken, eisig.
Insgesamt sehr gut. DrJ33 (1) - - DEC 7, 2015 does not count
I am from Düsseldorf and have grown up on Altbier, this is by far the choice of the locals and the most balanced in my opinion. Malt forward and a noble Hallertauer Hops finish, on the hoppy side for us Germans, but not for americans. The head has a rich caramel aroma to it and should be a dark shade of eggshell. If you are in Düsseldorf I highly recommend going there on a Wednesday night, so you get what I mean by choice of locals. peponi (1842) - Hannover, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2015
