Ein Bier mit besonderem Charakter. Unser Bier des Jahres 2008, das zum Dauerbrenner avanciert ist. Rötlich in der Farbe mit kraftvoller Schaumkrone. Vollmundig im Geschmack, mit malzaromatischer Note und elegant abklingender Bittere.

Quack-Duck (8861) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
bottle from a local Rewe. Hazy brown colour, mid-sized off-white head. Caramelly start, slightly sweet with a touch of honey and chocolate, also shy fruity hints. Hoppier in the finish. Smooth and easy-drinking beer.

bartlebier (2746) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014
33cl fresh fliptop, changing ICEs in Mannheim 02/2014. Pours a watery red-brown with stable head. Aroma of pregnant malts and a whiff of alcohol. Taste is slightly better, adding some dry Vienna malt aromatics and a superficial spicy hop tinge (extract) that does not entirely come together with the malts and pedestrian yeast profile. What use producing a specialty red beer if you are going to resort to extract (and underachieving bottom-fermentors)?

Erzengel (5800) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Der Geruch ist süßlich-malzig. Der Antrunk ist laff-würzig und etwas herb-trocken. Im Hauptteil ist eine etwas muffige Süße zu spüren... irgendwie ist das ganz sehr vollmundig, aber irgendwie wieder komisch... Der Nachgeschmack ist säuerlich-süßlich, leicht herb und für mich wieder sehr schwer zu beschreiben.
--> ein süffig-süßliches Bier, durch die Hefe sehr mild, aber irgendwie nicht so meins!
Test vom 8.6.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,10,8,12,9 - 9,45
