2017-07-15. Hazy brown body, nice foamy tan head and lace fades. 3+ Aroma is malty, lightly earthy and metallic. Flavour has a nice malt base, notes of caramel, dry toasty malt and very light tangy/metallic undertone occasionally. Average bodied palate, with good carbonation. Decent. 7/3/7/3/15+ Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

Served on tap. Crystal clear copper colour. Medium long-lasting foam. Strong herbal and grassy aroma. No malty aroma. Slightly roasty clean malty flavour. A strong bitterness which ends up with a dry and rough aftertaste. Low body, but not watery. Medium carbonation. 4.7% Abv completely masked by the bitterness. A good beer, but not my favourite altbier in Düsseldorf. japppp (151) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2017 50cl bottle, thanks to German ESSS17 santa. Clear hazelnut brown color with off-white head. Aroma has raisins, honey and malt. Taste is quite heavy bodied with pleasant bitter apple-like aftertaste. Nice! flying_pig (1579) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2017
330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer, Glasgow (£4):ThreeCats (969) - ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2017
n unusual beer that opened well with some nice sweetness & caramel in the early going, particularly with the nose but this never really carried to the taste & the beer was a bit of a disappointment by then; I was definitely expecting a lot more from this one given how highly rated it is as an altbier but I guess some of that is down to the fact that I’m not exactly a huge fan of the style. It will be interesting to see how the brewery’s DoppelStick compares to this offering but hopefully it will be at least a minor improvement on this one since it’s not exactly a beer that I’ll be rushing back to pick up again anytime soon sadly.
Clear mahogany color with a small head. Aroma nutty, with notes of wood, roast, and caramel. Taste roasty and nutty, not very sweet, notes of wood in the finish.

An attractive 33cl swing-top bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A bright copper coloured pour with a loose off-white head; matlty aroma with some dried fruit; caramel malt taste with a herbal bitterness, much stronger than expected; and a dry bitter carmael finish. a good Alt. sinte (582) - Udine, ITALY - JUL 22, 2017
Clear amber-to-copper body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with some lacing, though: very low density of tiny bubbles.
Moderate hoppy (herbal) and malty (caramel, toasted) aroma with light notes of licorice(?).
Moderate-to-heavy bitter flavour with light sweet notes; long-lasting bitter and dry finish.
Light-to-medium body with watery texture; average carbonation; light metallic feeling in the finish. nybol (2249) - DENMARK - JUL 12, 2017
Fra fad. En god humlet øl, der overrasker ved at have en stærk gærsmag. Smagte dog lidt for meget af diacetyl JoshRaburn (131) - - JUL 11, 2017
Banana esters in the nose, followed by the typical central European hops I always think of as "stony". Quite bitter with a dry finish. The beer really grows on you. A bit like a British bitter, or perhaps De Koninck. Far superior to any Kolsch.
