BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
500ml bottle, best before 23 Feb 2012, poured three times into one of my Hannen Alt glasses during Oct 2011. I like to think I know this style well, but I’m no expert, that’s for sure. This Alt looks the part, bright, clear and the typical clean chestnut brown/red most seem to be. This bottle had a full, deep head for me on each pour, so plenty of condition/carbonisation. The aromas lifting out of the straight sided Alt tumbler were of rich caramalised malty molasses with a non-sweet toffee undertone. Certainly not a sickly malt smell, but sweet without a doubt. The taste was a full on malt flavour, with a barely hidden bitterness along side: tangy, sharp and crisp in the mouth. Easy to drink, too easy, my bottle just seemed to evaporate before my eyes, surely I didn’t drink it that fast? The third glass was taken with some German cold cut meats, great accompliment to a lovely beer. I really love this style of beer (as well as Germany in general) and must return to Dusseldorf before too long.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2011
Kupferne Farbe, typisch für ein Alt. Geruch malzig, röstig und etwas vergoren. Der Geschmack gibt sich röstig und brotartig, was weniger schön ist. Dennoch ein trinkbares Alt. Gibt aber Bessere.Test vom 14.10.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Wenig malziger, dafür süß fruchtiger Geruch Nektarinen. Dünn und billig bitter wirkender Malzantrunk welcher sich im Mittelteil zum schlechten hin veränder, das Bier wird etwas bitterer, das noch deutlich schmeckbare Malz gerät in den Hintergrund. Leicht hopfig, wässriger hinterer Mittelteil und Abgang, in dem die billig wirkende Bitterkeit wieder einsetzt. Wenig empfehlenswert. Test vom 14.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,6,7,4,6,4 - 5,45

Grima (2511) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2011
beautiful copper-brown color! Roasted malt aromas, mild and sweet, overall. Toward the center part it gets somewhat more bitter. Good low-budget Altbier!
