Uerige Alt pours a lovely copper colour, with fine bubbles. The mouthfeel is warm but thin, and it has that classic, fantastically refreshing bitter thread running right through it.
It’s crisp, and there was no hint of coating on the tongue at all -- no sense of syrupiness, even as it warmed up, though, admittedly, I didn’t give it much time to do so.
Then I tried Schlüssel Alt at Mike’s Easter Day dinner, and I realised I would have to extend the spectrum a bit. Very impressive. It goes great with asparagus, by the way...
Still, I don’t think I’ve had enough experience to rate all the alts against each other properly. I think we’ll need a weekend in Düsseldorf soon...

i had my first Alt last weekend, very enjoyable it was to, i dont know if Schlosser Alt is considered a good example, but i certainly want to try more.ReplyDelete
If you ever go to Dusseldorf you have to try Fuchschen Alt. Blows all the other alts out of the water.ReplyDelete
Schumacher is nicer still!!ReplyDelete
