Sampled at the brewery/brewpub in Düsseldorf. (On-tap assumed, but perhaps from a barrel/cask.)

This altbier poured a clear, amber brown color with tan foam that clung to the glass in clumps. The smell was mildly malty with only a hint of hops. The taste was lightly malty with a very mild hoppy quality. There was a touch of caramel malt in the flavor. This alt was lighter in flavor than some others in Düsseldorf. The mouthfeel was very smooth with medium body and low carbonation. The flavors lingered only slightly (which is fine because the waiter comes by with a new tray of beers as fast as you can finish the one in your hand). This was a good "session alt", and was easy to drink. (695 characters)

Thanks to my friend Georg for carrying this one over from Germany.

Gunsmoke on the pop of the poptop bottle. Beautiful just coming up and lingering before disappearing completely. The pour was very clear and a very light amber. I could smell biscuits. Well, not actually biscuits, like buttermilk biscuits, but it had a bready-biscuity smell. The taste was bready, complex, not sweet malty, but malty nonetheless with a smoothness that made it go down so easily. There's the slight bitterness from the hops, but it finishes with the bready malt. Mouthfeel is smooth. Though I'm not a fan of lagers, it was lagerish-smooth. I guess you get this from most Alt ales. Not too carbonated, in fact, reminiscent of cask ale carbonation. Well, slightly more carbonated, but excitingly easy to quaff. (794 characters)

Subtle, but good. Caramelly/nutty malts. Nicely dry, pretty much all the way through, with a nicely herbal, bitter hops finish. This is my first 'real' altbier, and i kinda like it. Interesting, and very quaffable, nice soft mouthfeel aswell. The type of stuff you can drink all day, and then again all night. (bottle- GBBF 03') (328 characters)

Deep copper color, big, slightly off-white head that disappears after a bit. A malty, biscuity aroma. A creamy mouthfeel to this one. Goes quite well with the German grub. A very balanced beer, quite malty but has a great offsetting bitterness, and a bit of hop flavor here as well. (282 characters)
