Sweet malty aroma. Nice clear amber color, but almost no foam. Feels a bit thin, but leaves behind a pleasant bitterness.

Bottle. Copper color. Aroma of caramelised malt mostly. Tastes creamy and sweet, with caramel and a little hop bitter. Quite bland and boring.

Gedronken met rikstar. Goudgeel helder met weinig schuim. Aroma is muf. Smaak is in het begin zoet en bij de afdronk wat zuur en iets droog.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2014
33cl, slightly past its prime. Clear copper pour with good white cap. Vienna malt bag, caramel, old honey in aroma. Tastes as you’d expect from a clear Northern Oktoberfest/Märzen, with nice enough caramel malt nuances, toasted nuts and a tastier than expect fruity hop presence, but it never fails to baffle me why traditionally a Weihnachtsbier is basically an Oktoberfest recipe, brewed to a mere 5,5%, whereas all other self-respecting beer nations with less harsh winters don’t even begin thinking of Xmas beers below 7%. Hence the overall score reflects my opinion about the sheer seasonal pointlessness of this style and the old-world tedium that befalls one when confronted with one of these on macrostocked supermarket shelves. - Would gladly drink this in Sep, Oct, though...

Zlotta (579) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle, 0,33 l, best before 23/6/2015, gift from my parents. Looks quite nice: crystal clear, light amber with soapy, slowly diminishing, dirty white head. Hints of caramel, nuts and cereals in the nose. Sweetish taste of malts, caramel and cereals. Unpleasant, medium long and medium bitter aftertaste. Light to medium body, a bit watery, average carbonation. Solid lager, quaffable, boring.

Erzengel (6248) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2014
0,33l bottle, best before 29.07.14. Malzig-süffiges Bier, dunkelmalzig, leicht süßlich. Nicht sehr tief, aber sehr süffig. Frisch-malzig. Würzig. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, süßlich-dunkel, malzig mit feinherber Note im Nachgeschmack. Nett.
