1L bottle from trade with Erzengel. Many thanks! Pours a hazy chestnut dark brown, with large off-white head. Aroma is nutty caramel. Taste is bittersweet, caramel munich malts, floral spice with a herbal bitter hop bite. 2 months past the drink-by date, despite being bottled 3 months ago, and still tasting quite fresh. Great alt.

Tap @ Drinkers Pub Eindhoven, medium sample. Clear amber color, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel, toast, bit toffee, slight herbal again, bit more hoppy than the regular version. Taste is more smooth and full bodied then the regular alt, slightly more bitter, subtle caramel and toffee sweetness. Good stuff.

Tap @ Im Golden Kessel, Düsseldorf. Pours a slightly paler dark red brown than Uergie’s. Large bubbled head with some yellowish brown to it. Aroma is fairly mild. Taste is somewhat fruity, dark malt, slight herbal, light earthiness. Dries up on the finish. Definitely a different take than Uerige.

Old rating, on cask at Schumacher Oststr. Smooth nice malty beginning. Not as deep as their normal Alt. Round and smooth with a round and fresh malty dark body. Nice high level of bitterness, intense malty with a not too thin but nice refreshing bitter malty aftertaste.

Tap (Schumacher, Dusseldorf)
A bit of a letdown after the Alt. Still bready and nutty, but less hoppy. A bit sweeter, and some minerally aspects. Light palate, drinkability very high. Finish dry and a bit woody, but lacking the character of the previous beer, too much minerally water.

Mahogany, large bready head. Head tastes utterly delicious, Super fruity aroma. Refreshing palate. Amazingly fruity taste, nutty too, a bit woody. Absolutely lovely brew, attenuation perfect, hopping gently metallic and vapoury in the finish, some dry nuttiness too. Makes you want another one, which is the best thing a beer can do.

Draught at the brewpub. Just ad pillowy soft as the basic Schumacher, a bit less bitter. And above all, exceedingly fruity, with strawberries followed by cherries. Together with the aroma hops this creates an impression of vanilla scented cherry pipe tobacco. Very well structured and harmonic. Excellent stuff.

1 l bottle from De Bierkoning, bottled in November 2015 (4 days old !). Clear, amber with a medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy, slightly resiny aroma of candied orange, apricot jam, caramel, hay and hints of pine. Sweetish, fruity-grassy taste of orange, caramel, nuts, hay and minimal hints of pine, followed by a short, medium bitter and grassy-hoppy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Superbly balanced, highly drinkable and refreshing Altbier. I expected the hops to shine even more but this beer remains true to its style. Very decent stuff.
