Fatehunter (2413) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Half finger of tan head. Copper, almost brown, colored body. Smell is barnyardish, hay, caramel and tinge of lemon. Taste is bitter/sweet at first, sweet caramel in the middle, long dry bitter finish. A little sourness throughout. Medium body, low carbonation. Slightly sticky texture. Tasty and a good altbier.

BeardedAvenger (446) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle at home. From Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Sweet caramel and grass aroma. Dark Amber. Fluffy off-white head. Light sweetness through to a tangy bitterness that continues in to the long finish. Malt and citrus with a honey undercurrent. Light bodied. Impactful carbonation with a softness to the body. A dry element combines with the carbonation on the tongue. Decent if overly carbonated.

peponi (1646) - Hannover, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2016
Aroma: melanoidins, candies, flowers, herbs. Appearance: clear amber color and creamy head. Taste: medium herbal bitterness, melanoidins, caramel, herbs like pellet, dry. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Too bitter and a little bit to rough, but it was nice to try. In any case, this is a nice alt.

Uerige58 (1) - - SEP 17, 2016 does not count
For me this is the best of its type. Dry, malt finish, You need to drink at least three, 0.25ml "becher" to develop the palate. Many find this "Ale" a little overpowering compared to the other Duesseldorf and Krefelder Alt beers. Draught is always superior to bottled or even a five litre tin barrel if you can get it?

ebone1988 (1543) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20, for the book. Aroma is caramel, floral, earthy hops, sweet, potpourri. Appearance is darker amber brown, light tan head, hazy. Taste is balanced, caramel, earthy hops, metallic, sweet malt, very crushable. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, soft, earthy hop and caramel aftertaste. Overall, this is very true to style.

koleminer20 (2934) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2016
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The fucking book. The pour is a darker ruby tinted brown color with a huge cream colored head that falls slowly leaving a pretty soapy lace. The aroma is much grainier than I was expecting. There is a sweet malt and an interesting chocolate happening that I’m not overly fond of. The it’s dry and powdery. The flavor is sweet and metallic. There is a light malt and a little fruit present. It’s just sweet malt and metallic lager yeast. There is a hint of dirty earthy hop. Damn. The mouth feel is thin and light with a bigger carbonation, but it’s still thin. The aftertaste is sweet and metallic malts. It’s not awful, but it’s not the best.
