Douberd (2594) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2014
(Bruch Zwickel) Stubby bottle at home, from trade with vipinvelp, thanks! Served into an english pint glass, ABV 4.8% Golden yellow colour on the body, huge thick white head, with great retention, helped by its size, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Nice activity in the glass. Aroma of barley, fresh grass, light yeast even, nice citrusy touches. Nice taste, light grains but without becoming offensive, bread, hay, again some light citrus that fades as the beer warms up. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Quite good, certainly drinkable.

vipinvelp (2358) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2014
Clear yellow, large fluffy foam head. Barley aroma and taste, nothing special here, just another German beer. Just OK. (Velp 201411)

bartlebier (1967) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2014
33cl bottle, passing through Saarland, bb01/2015. Bright, near neon-green label lettering prepares for the bright & metallic green hop bitterness...Husky straw malts attempt to lay a light malt base more elegant than cow fodder. Topped with those harsh, metallic hops and extracts, make for a confused Zwickel carrying a few aromatic and yeasty traces of its own possible redemption.

330 ml bottle. 249. BB 12/05/14. From Erzengel. Vielen Dank Gabriel!
Clear yellow golden colour with no head. Grainy malt and grass in the aroma. Lacks something. Grainy malty flavour with mild grassy notes. Thin. Bit of a disappointment.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 12.05.14, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20140315) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had grass, straw and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, straw, malts and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet and bitter. Not really a bad brew but both the aroma and the taste were very mild.

Erzengel (3550) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2013
Rating from 2008 on tap: Frisch-süffiger Antrunk, Der Hauptteil wird hefig und leicht muffig, aber irgendwie doch herb-frisch. Der Nachgeschmack ist etwas muffig-herb, aber angenehm, mittellang anhaltend mit herb-hefig-milder Note auf der Zunge! --> 12,10,12,9,-,11 - 10,78

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
Milky golden-yellow colour with low steady head and thin body. Nose of hops. Taste of young hops, green grains, green nuts, grass, torf and basement. easy to drink and really refreshing and fizzy. Enjoyed it but I just missed a certain deepness and character, it is too light and thin to give it a better rating.
