  1. Darren Frew

    Outstanding beer from Hamburg, probably the most un-German like beer you can imagine. A copper ale with plenty of fizz. Personally, I prefer it at room temperature as opposed to chilled, but, it tastes good chilled too!

  2. Marcus Wellings

    One of the best beers I’ve drunk
    No chemical after taste like you get with some other beers
    Goes down nice and smooth best drunk cold
    You won’t be disappointed

  3. David Hanson

    Decent Altbier, slightly sweeter than others but still a good balance with bitterness.

  4. David Gouldson

    Malty, caramel aromas. Malty flavours, quite sweet with caramel hints. Nice Altbier.

  5. Milan Macurak

    That nutty finish is absolutely fantastic. Not to be missed !

  6. Kristin

    Nice caramel malty flavour, I like that is has some sweetness and isn’t too bitter

  7. Matthew W

    Pours a clear dark amber, small off-white head, little retention.
    Aroma is pleasant but faint, some caramel malt and nuts on the nose.
    Taste is good though. Caramel and bready malts, nuts, a light fruity tang, moderate bitter kick.
    Light to medium bodied, fairly slick, moderate carbonation.

  8. Kris

    I enjoyed this Altbier which I had not tried before – potentially a tad pricier than other great Altbier examples (such as Uerige if in stock)

  9. James McCauley

    A fantastic beer. Great taste and something a bit different. Only down side is the cost.

  10. Chris Meechan

    A dark, malty red ale. Sweet and refreshing.

  11. Peter Wootton

    This beer features in Roger Protz book “300 Beers to try before you die!” It is a very refreshing, bronze red in colour, and has a lovely dry and spicy finish.


    Lovely beer, nice taste and texture

  13. Gavin Harrison

    Is this one of the 300 best beers in the world as one writer suggests? Well, I don’t think it would even be one of the 300 best beers in Yorkshire but that of course is a matter of personal taste and says more about the makers of lists than it does about the beer. A lovely red-brown like a highly polished pair of expensive shoes and a creamy head but not as long-lasting as some. Very smooth, quite malty but not excessively so, this is certainly a quality Altbier that stands well with others of this style. Expensive to the point of proving the “law of diminishing returns” – in other words, better than an Altbier costing half as much – but not twice as good!

  14. Raymond Housley

    One of my favourites when available and I must admit I used to think it came from Austria. Best drunk cold and a lovely colour and taste. Some previous comments about price but well worth the extra for a decent drink.

  15. Steven Nicholas

    Dark and mild with a dank aftertaste. It is a pleasant and smooth beer.
