Hazed orange-brown with a thin head. Has some sweet fruit in its nose, a little drier in its taste in this respect with some grain evident.

Erzengel (2397) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2013
Thanks to Seanyfo for this beer. Best before date is 30.07.2014, Batch 539. Light amber colour. The beer starts mild, slightly sour. Nice "red" malty hints, very smooth. The main part is a bit watery, nice malty and a bit (for me) too sweet. The slight sourness in the end seems to be an infection - it doesn’t really fit into the whole picture. But as the beer was stored correctly and has still 9 month shelf-life, I don’t know. In the mouth stays a nice, smooth vienna-style malt-aroma with the typical bitterness of a nice ale. --> Interesting beer! 10/11/8/8

Hazy, clear red pint. Slightly sour aroma. Flavour is toffee but with a too-tangy sweet edge for my taste. It’s nice enough but unfortunately has quite a watery finish.
