I have been trying to get my hands on every Alt there is, but this ísn't very available in Holland.

Appearance was good, a dark amber beer with lots of fine foam.
Smell was bitter, caramel and slightly metallic.
Taste was bitter and caramel, dry with a medium body, again the metallic taste was present.
A very drinkable beer, maybe a bit less drinkable than a pilsner, but more tasty and depth. Compared to other Alts, a bit more malt-bitter.

Sampled from a bottle at a restaurant in Düsseldorf.

This altbier poured a clear, iced-tea brown color with off-white foam that settled but clung to the glass in a few clumps. The smell was malty but modest. The taste was lightly malty with a well balanced hop bitterness. There was a hint of caramel malt flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and dry with medium body and good carbonation. A light caramel malt flavor lingered. Overall, this beer was a tad thin on flavor, but it was a decent beer.

Malty nose with a good dose of salt and some faint fruit, yeast and rotting road kill. Taste is initially fruit, then the rotting road kill makes a brief appearance before the hops, with a slight metallic quality, come in. A mostly pleasant drink but not in any way impressive. My feeling is that altbiers are quite drinkable, but are not a style that will get into my Christmas wish list.

0.3l blue bottle with a freshness date. (had in Berlin)

Poured into a branded 6oz short glass ... dark copper/brown with a creamy off-white head. Malty, metallic, light grain aroma.

Sharp citrus, smacky, bitterness that is quickly smoothed by a nutty, toasted, semi-sweet malty character. Bitterness runs through and into the bitty dry finish.

Contains "hopfenextrakt" (hop extract) and is quite noticeable in the unusual intensity of the hops for the style. A decent altbier, but nothing outstanding, and especially as this was my first altbier in Germany.
