Moravius (1538) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2017 "Schumacher Alt 1838er", Flasche (1 l) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Kupferrotbraun, fast klar, üppige Schaumkrone. - In der Nase milde Hefe, Toastbrot, blasse Zitrusfrucht und zart apfelige obergärige Fruchtigkeit. - Antrunk mild toastmalzig-nussig mit etwas Karamel. Nicht allzu kräftige aber frische, fein zitrusfruchtige Hopfenherbe mit zart unreifen Noten. Gut rezent, schlank aber weich im Mund. Im Abgang mild hopfenbitter und schwach trocken mit zarter metallischer Note. - Angenehmes Altbier, mild aber aromatisch, weich und rund, vielleicht ein klein wenig unreif.

4.6
Cristobal37 (1325) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 1l bottle from Foersters Feine beer, Berlin. Alt color of orangey brown. Strong caramel and bran bread aroma. Tastes follows caramel, bread, sweet black tea, some fruity galaxy hop twist. Finish is fruity hop and that dry alt taste hangs out. Alt is not a stlye I'm super familiar with but this is the best yet. The modern hop varieties give it a fruitier character and it tastes much better than the alts Ive had before.
