bottle, amber orange color, foamy head, nice fruit nose flavor is dry fruit and hops, finish is smooth not bitter, extra point for the bottle polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, dark dried fruits, pears, and brown sugar. murky brown hue with a very small head that fully diminished and left no lace. Flavor is caramel, pear, apple, earth and finishes short. Palate is medium bodied and oily flat. Very good and quite surprising. Cool bottle to. joe19612 (2994) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008

I would love to have a proper rate for this but all it says in my notes is "A really good alt." I’m sure I intended adding more but got carried away with something else. It’s an altbier, we all know what they are like, in my humble opinion this is a good one...
On tap at the GBBF 2008. Dark brown colour, low head. Nice aroma of caramel and butterscotch. "Dusty" flavour, malty with a noticeable hoppy finish. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
This altbier pours a deep brown color from a 330ml swing top bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt, sweet and earthy. A medium bodied altbier. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are spicy and earthy and fairly bitter. Good carbonation. Nice balance. It certainly is aggressively bitter for the style, mostly in the finish. Some roasty malts as well. Interesting. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter. thornecb (5987) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Pours deep amber into an altbier glass. Fluffy off-white head with good retention leaves sheet lacing as it recedes. Dark carame, breadl and malt aromas. Soft upfront turning fizzy with deep, dark caramel. Lasting bitter finish. kennydiaz (358) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2008
IT WAS GERMAN PERFECTION. A VERY NICE BOTTLE. HAD A STRONG BITTER AFTERTASTE. ONE OF GERMANY’S BEST. rcweir (139) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Pours clear medium brown with substantial head, well-retained. Noble hops aroma, some fruitiness, rich body, significant bitter finish.
