Bottle from Erzbierschof, batch 117, bb 2/2014
Cloudy amber color, medium sized creamy head. The aroma is earthy, some manure, mildly pungent, light cream. Good mouthfeel, round and smooth; toffee flavor, quite sweet, with some crystal malt; strong character of oranges, some cedar, tangerine, very light frankincense; strong bitterness, a bit earthy and dirty. Maybe not as fresh as it should be.

Craft Clerkenwell. Light haze on this amber beer and a little white head. Nice fine carbonation in a slightly soft palate. Sweetish pale malt underpins. Lovely tropical fruity hops. Marmalade with mango, dried apricot, fresh orange and a trace of lemon. Finishes crisp and minerally, with a marmalade bitter aftertaste. Every mouthful a winner!
