Quite a lovely pile of suds on the hazed yellow brew. Wet cardboard aroma with some European hop notes. The whiff of the faintly skunky European hops is there too. Sprightly but watery in the mouth.

Taste is bready with some fruity sourish notes. An old fruit taste. Some sweet malt with a touch of oxidation. Persistent metallic aftertaste is the last straw for me. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor for $3.00.

Very little head, hazy straw gold color. Faint smell of malt and light hop hint. Taste is light, crisp and unexpectedly tart. Much lighter color and none of the caramel flavors I've had in other alts. Very enjoyable and drinkable. Traveled well from Germany.

Nose of bread, sour yeast, light citrus, grains, grassy. Taste light nutty malt, mild tartness, earthy, floral, citrusy hops. Ok Alt!

Münster Alt pours clean cloudy gold with a 2” off white foam cap that fairly quickly drops to a tinny hillock that leaves lines of lace with each drink. Floral aromas join light fruit and grain on the nose. The palate starts with a hint of sweetness and finishes dry with a little fruity tartness. Light grains form the backbone. Medium body and medium low carbonation. Very easy to drink and very refreshing.

Pours a hazy light gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, grape jelly, and white grape juice aromas. Taste is much the same with floral, grass, and white grape juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Look is nothing special, but it's surprisingly fresh and light without losing its potency. Very happy with this beer at the low price!

Pours a pale golden amber with a copious quantity of puffy white foam floating on top. Aroma is sweet grains and some bubble gum and cherry fruity notes, along with another earthy or perhaps musty element. Bready and quite sweet on the palate, with some breakfast cereal, popcorn and toast, classy floral hops and an emergent citrus note, orange I would say. Pleasantly assertive but not overpowering hops. Rather fruity. Light thin body and moderate carbonation. For some reason I am surprised that this is so appealing. More sweet and gentle than my conceptualization of the alt style but a great session brew, with enough complexity to hold one's attention.
