Tuulensuu, Tampere. Deep amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits, some toffee and mild floral notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, caramelly and toffeeish. Quite tasty, and also shows some nice toasted notes towards the finish. As it warms up it does show some grainy notes.

Clear amber color, small off-white head. Light breadyness, toffee and grain in the nose. Medium-bodied. Some toffee, grass, hints of alcohol. Maybe they have house flavor as this tastes a bit like their abbey dubbel :)

Ewwwwww, that’s an off aroma. Nice reddy amber, persistent tight off-white head. Ewww, lactic sourness in the taste too. But a very nice roast . Shame about the sourness, I can tell there’s a nice dark beer behind the flaws. The finish is actually very nice, the fullness of the roast covers the tongue. Nice nutty finish. The lacticity probably improves the fullness of the palate. I would like to have this fresh as the brewer intended.
Bottle from ElDesmadre, thanks! Copper color. Bready aroma and flavor with hints of caramel and nutmeg, Sweet. medium bodied. Corny. kevnic2008 (11980) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2012
Nice amber colour with a kind of yellow head. Clearly malt and sweet in the end. O.K. Altbier but a much too sweet.

2012-07-08. Bright copper/amber body with a modest beige head. 3+ Malty aroma, toasty malt and caramel touches. Similar flavour, malt forward with light bitterness and a mild tangy quality to it. Average bodied palate. Decent, enjoyable. Bottle shared by Radek olio (10167) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2014

Dense, medium yellow head over clear amber-chestnut beer. Sweetish, caramelly nose, seems a tad oxydated, nutty, hints at cinnamon. Bit woody, lots of caramel and sweet liquorice. Very sweet, fruity sweetness too, banana. Retronasal one gets some hints of a woody bitterishness. Light to medium bodied, if quite slick "Altbier" is not a very well-defined style - if a style at all. Yet I would recommend the "Hausbrauer" from the label a thorough visit to the classical Düsseldorfer Hausbrauereien... mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012

bottle, picked up at prague alefest at klub hoodoo. quite a faithful rendition of a duesseldorf alt - murky light brown with a lingering off-white head; aroma of slightly sweaty, sweet caramel and vanilla; hints of mulch, buttery banana and lightly metallic bitterness. a fair effort
