3.25/5 rDev -6.6%
Appearance: Amber, clear, effervescent; medium-small frothy egg shell white head, long lasting
Aroma: Malty; slightly vinous; light hops; light roasted grains
Taste: Juicy malt, fairly sweet; pretty thin overall mouthfeel; tastes a lot like a British brown ale (sulfury); smooth, but not particularly noteworthy
Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

On tap from a local pub
A- Dark brown colour. Head is slightly off-white, not impressive but shows nice retention
S- Not bright for sure. Kind of a soft malty with a slight herbal background
T- Sweet malty entrypoint, though bitterness soon hits (and i mean hits by german standards) with a bitter herbs feel. Overall a nicely balanced mix of sweet nutty malts and bitter herbs. Slight fruity feel on the background
M- Medium body and carbonation. Decently good. Just feels good, nothing impressive.
O- Nice drinkability and overall balance. Enjoyable though not impressive at all. Not even close to alts like those from Uerige

330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Dark bronze colour, one finger head which didn't hang around very long, kept some lacing. Quite thick looking but not hazy. Initially there was no detectable aroma, some malt and vanilla came through towards the end. Tasted charcol and malt, was overly bitter in an unbalanced way that also killed all other flavours. Finish was bitter and slightly bready. Had a coarse edge, was well carbonated and the body was quite thick for the fairly low strength. Overall not one of the better beers out there, was just a bit unbalanced even though it mellowed slightly.

Got this beer on a short visit to Germany just across the border from Sittard in the Netherlands in an ordinary REWE supermarket. I visited the brewery in the summer of 2000, when I did an internship in Düsseldorf. I remember that it was not my favorite amongst the many different Altbier that I tasted in that summer.
In lack of a proper Altbier glass, I poured it into a tall Pils glass. The color is a crystal clear light amber. Only little carbonation visible. The 2 finger slightly beige head shows a good retention for such a beer type and leaves a nice lacing.
Smell is not strong but there is some roasted malt and hints of banana and bread.
Malty in taste but subtle, roasted malt mainly; some bitterness that seems related not alone to the hops but also to the roasted malt.
Foam is smooth and tastes pleasant
Runs down my throat like a medium carbonated soft mineral water. Still it is rather smooth than watery.
Very good drinkability, refreshing but with its maltiness also suited for the colder months of the year. I am surprised how much I like this. I think I have to go back re-exploring this style.

500 ml bottle, at home, poured into a kolsch glass. ABV 4,8%.
Pale amber colour, with an off-white head on top, soapy, with average retention, leaving light lacing behind. Little activity in the glass. Very transparent.
Nice strong aroma of roasted malts and slighty caramel.
Quite bitter on the finish, with intense roasted malts taste and a light iron flavour.
Very thin on the body. Carbonation is light to medium.
At first I was a bit disappointed by its appearance but it turned out to be a very nice alt.

Russet brown with fluffy beige froth that settles to a film. Lots of toast and caramel on the nose with minty hops underneath - sweet and appetizing.
Baked apples, roasted peanuts and caramelized sugar with grass and herbal hops.
Danish butter cookie end and drying finish. Medium trending to light, slight cling, crisp.
Glad to try a another genuine Dusseldof Alt. Dark melanoidin notes, but all bright, nothing swampy, and a surprisingly hoppy ending. Nothing revolutionary, but a perfectly nice drinker, if a bit thin.

I drank this beer in a restaurant in Dreifelden, a tiny little place in Germany. The beer was served in the original glass which looks a bit like a small lemonade glass. Darkbrwon fluid with a broken white two finger head.
There is no carbonation visible and the beer has a malty taste with a sweetness. The hops are far away in this beer. Good to drink though!
