Lagerboy (1504) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear bright golden yellow, small foamy white head settles and lasts. Malty, fruity hop aroma. Citrus herbal hop taste, sweet malts, some faint spicy piney hints. Light carbonation and body. New World hops make it a less boring British bitter. Got a bit musty, sour and old towards the finish, be nice to try a fresh one. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
50cl. Thanks to Sean for this beer! The beer starts mild, very drinkable. the mainpart is mild as well, a bit too neutral. The aftertaste is not too long, a bit of typical Ale aroma is present, but not much. A bit malty sweetness, a bit "nothing". --> much too neutral, not mine. 7/12/6/6
