Brauerei Schlôsser was established in Düsseldorf in 1873. While it now brews under Germany's private brewery group--the Radeberger Group--it still maintains its age-old regional brewing traditions to produce its historical favourites.

Literally translated to "old castles," Schlôsser Alt is the quintessential Düsseldorf Altbier. A well-balanced, bitter yet malty German ale this beer is clean and smooth with nutty flavours and a rather dry finish. It's so refreshing it's a good thing it comes in bigger bottles!

The Altbier style is a good style to start with if you’re looking to take the leap from standard lagers to a darker, fuller-bodied beer. While it fermented with ale yeast, due to the relatively cool temperatures of the Düsseldorf area the original altbier conditioned at temperatures close to that of lagers—a method that is used to this day.

Fresh strong taste
Review by
Despite its dark colour this beer tastes like a lager. It’s one of my favourite draught beers when I am in Dusseldorf and the bottled version has travelled well.
Enjoyable beer

Pours a clear dark amber colour with good level of white head and average carbonation. Aromas of lightly roasted malt; biscuity & caramel with a hint of smoke backed by a gentle hop presence. Taste is lightly fruity with a delicate blend of caramel and lightly roasted flavours followed by a firm, spicy hop bitterness with a hint of pepper. Enjoyable beer.
