lovibond (115) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2011
At the brewery, 123 Oststr. Served in a 25cl Altbier tumbler. It may be a small serving, but its sensory delights more than compensate. Brilliant clarity; a little on the light side for typical Altbier, but this is one of the places where the Altbier style was defined! Creamy, long-lasting head. Aroma of resiny, herbal, even a little grassy, hops, hops, hops, with malt right behind. Phenomenal taste: extremely clean bittering, but massive dose of iso-humulone makes its presence felt mid-mouth and even a bit in the back. As in aroma, malt elegantly supports flavor. Finish is dry, and aftertaste is primarily of noble-type hops. A masterpiece!

Bottle, 1 liter swing top, shared by Cunningham. It pours a big diminishing off-white head over a lightly hazy dark golden body. The aroma has a light caramel and bread touch and a nice grassy hoppyness. The flavor has a fine bitterness to support the bread and caramel. Full body and a soft carbonation. Long malty finish with a fine bitterness. Nice. 140214

Per quanto questo stile non possa certo accampare grandi pretese in quanto a gusto e aroma, è fatto bene. Buona maltatura che accompagna per tutta la durata del gusto, finale secco. E’ che quando bevo questo tipo di birre sembra sempre che manchi qualcosa. Mea culpa, probabilmente.

On tap. Cooper color. The foam remains on the glass while drinking. A roasted malt smell. The taste is bittersweet and lasts shortly.

Erzengel (1931) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 17, 2014
Out of the cask at the brewery at Oststr. Malziger Antrunk. Zum Hauptteil recht herb, malzig-trocken. Würzig. Zum Ende hin malzig-trocken mit intensiver alt-typischer Herbe. Aber keinerlei florale Hopfennoten. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine herb-trockene Malznote. Lecker & sehr intensiv malzig-trocken-herb. 13/12/12/13

På fat @ bryggeripuben. Bärnstensfärgad med stort äggvitevispat skum. Dofter av citrus, gröna äpplen och vitt bröd. Smakinslag av karamell, gräs, melon, citrus, röda bär och honung. Gräddig munkänsla. Mycket bra sötma parat med en svag beska.
