One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Draft, BH. 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.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle thanks to McTapps. Good looking deep, brownish amber beer wit a rocky, off-white head and soft to moderate carbonation. The nose is pleasant with bittersweet cereal and toffee and also hints of ripe tropical fruit. The taste is much the same, opening and closing crisply bitter but with rounded, malty caramel notes too, although slightly marred by a rather metallic aftertaste. A very British tasting German beer. Enjoyed.
