500 ml bottle. Clear pale golden body with a medium sized white head. Rather weak in aroma with some citric fruit and a floral touch. Flavor is light, soft, pale malt, slightly citric fruity, hint of flowers and light bitterness. Medium body and short in aftertaste. Drinkable, no faults but rather palin and one-dimensional. One of these beers that make me bored before finishing the bottle and decides to open something else meanwhile and then finishing it later just to have it done whiteout pouring an expensive bottle down the drain. Still nothing really wrong with it.

Rostosto (31) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Big elderflower here and IPAish tones on the tounge. Its got apricots flowing through the taste along with big florals and mightly refreshing. Average in places and very good at the same time. I really like it and my cold is saying no aroma to note but the flavour is saying, yeah go. Looks like a meaty pils. One of those beers that is slightly hard to rate actually. If you’re in the mood you’ll love it. And heh, 1.25 from as asda. Can I have some more elderberry beer please sir? Lovely stuff!

Erzengel (3975) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2014
Thanks to Sean! Dunkelgolden im Glas, feinporiger Schaum. Typischer Ale-Geruch, sehr Kohlensäure-haltig im Glas. Die schöne, Ale-typische Note ist insgesamt etwas wässrig. Der Hauptteil ist lecker-typisch, trocken-herb, leicht erdig und ganz leicht süßlich. Im Nachgeschmack ist das Bier eicht herb, etwas wässrig. 10/12/10/10

BlackHaddock (4247) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
500ml bottle: BBD 28 Sep 15. Shared between two of us on 26th Oct 14. Clear, bright golden body with a thin head of white foam. The nose had a floral hop front with mild malt notes. The taste was also hop floral, with some light maltiness. Not a great beer in my eyes.

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle.An almost clear one, golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. There’s some pale malts in the aroma, with cheesy hints. Mostly fruity. The flavor has some bitterness to deal with the pale malts. Rather fruity, with a cheesy hint. Medium to full body with soft carbonation, semi-dry. Some bitterness in the finish too. Lasting fruity finish with a good bitterness. A decent one, but nothing special going on. 140726
