2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tall flip-top bottle: best before 15 Dec 2012. Poured (three times) into one of my Hannen Alt glasses @ home during a random tasting evening on 16 Nov 2012.
Looks reminded me of a cola with a head that stayed longer than normal: certainly that colour anyway.
Poor nose: just weak malt notes and an earthy whiff.
The taste is also on the weak side: mildly malty but no depth or ’umph’ to the brew at all, a big disappointment to be honest. Maybe it’s better fresh or on-tap, but I doubt it. The beer did seem to grow on me a little as I got used to its flavours, there was some bitterness to be found along with those malts mentioned earlier but it still didn’t cut the mustard as a good Alt in my eyes.
Cask in the brewpub. Pours brown with a big frothy cream head. Toast aroma. The taste is more toast, slightly buttery. Decent. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 21, 2017
Clear mahagony with a medium off white head. Aroma had roasted malt and hints of nuts. Flavor was dry and roasted with nuts and a soft mouthfeel. Finished bitter. Not bad! Tjeerd (518) - GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
Yep, quite nice beer! Sweet caramelly taste, warm, round and lasting taste and aftertaste. ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle. Well, what a nice surprise. Grain making way for a dry nuttiness, sweet chocolate, a hint of dried fruit. Soft and smooth mouthfeel, impeccable drinkability. Simple, straightforward and yet so much rewarding beer. Dry finish but still with that aftertaste of malt awesomeness. Wow. I could drink this every day.

(On tap) Clear mid brown with big head. Subtle pleasant aroma. Medium body, good carbonation. Flavour is toffee malt with interesting sour notes and good bitterness. Very drinkable.
