AGB (20) - Québec, Quebec, - MAR 14, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Schlussel is an "ok" altbier, but despite being very drinkable, there is nothing very hoppy to speak of and not really malty either, It lacks a little something that would make you say "I want another one right now", just like the Uerige Alt is, for example. The place is beautiful though, definitly worths a stop if you’re near Dusseldorf (along with all the other Altbier breweries!)

MrHangover (4350) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany brownish red beer with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, lots of caramel, hint of wood and dirt notes. Flavor is mildly sweet, cookies, red fruits and has this real subtle, soft mouthfeel which I like so much in most Altbiers. Aftertaste is short, inviting you to take another sip. Very decent.

Pours ruby brown from the bottle and leaves an off white head. Aroma is caramel, nuts. Taste is overall sweet with light bitter and sour notes. Body is medium. Drank a lot of these back in the day when it was my favorite Altbier. Good with food or alone. Good stuff.
