2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Dark bronze colour, one finger head which didn’t hang around very long, kept some lacing. Quite thick looking but not hazy. Initially there was no detectable aroma, some malt and vanilla came through towards the end. Tasted charcol and malt, was overly bitter in an unbalanced way that also killed all other flavours. Finish was bitter and slightly bready. Had a coarse edge, was well carbonated and the body was quite thick for the fairly low strength. Overall not one of the better beers out there, was just a bit unbalanced even though it mellowed slightly.
Bottle at Dusseldorf. Clear pale brownish-copper with beige head. The aroma has notes of dark bread, raisin, prune and milk chocolate. Bitter and sourish flavor with notes of caramel, dark bread, dried fruits, nuts and lemon. Medium-bodied. martpez (370) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017

Reasonable/OK-ish Altbier, but not one of my favorites. Drinkable. Better of tap. kraddel (9324) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2017
Bottle in dusseldorf airport. Pours clear dark copper, decently sized white head. Smell is toasty, bit caramel, bready. Very fine undertone of hops. Taste is a bitbto the weaker side. The earlier described aspects do come back in the flavor, but not as intense as I had hoped. Very mild bitter ending. Easy drinker.

Not the best alt,but ok. thellgren (1164) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2017
several 0.2 l draught somewhere in Düsseldorf (April 21, 2017). Appearance is dark amber and clear. This has more dark malts than some of the other Altbiers, but taste is still quite smooth and easy. There is no roasted bitterness or dry dark chocolate. Quite decent one, but there are better ones.
