Brauerei Schlösser Alt (4.8%)

From Düsseldorf, Alt is a decent dark lagered beer.
It pours the colour of cold black coffee and holds about as much head.
The aroma is bitter burned toffee and just a slight hit of liquorice, but it’s all very far away and a bit vague.
Once drinking it you get the feeling that this falls somewhere between a bitter and a lager and as such would be a good way into trying lagers if you’re a bitter man through and through.
A dark digestive biscuit with hints of rum and raisin start things off, and there’s a touch of walnut in here too.
The hops are floral and peppery and nicely bitter, and they lead you into a leafy hedgerow of a finish, dry and pithy and really quite nice.
