Sigmund (5317) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2013
500 ml screwcap bottle, from the Poetzsch border shop near Kruså / Flensburg. ABV is 5.9%. Amber colour, pours fizzy with a moderate and coarse white head. Quite interesting aroma, notes of malts and ripe red berries, hints of mild spices. The flavour has a mildly spicy, herbal and malty character, with a hint of caramel. Not bad.

Bamsen78 (3426) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and malt with a fruity note. Sweetish, malty taste enriched by the bitterness of hops. A little watery but definitely ok.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. The first drinkable from Engel so far. Still mediocre at its highest point but drinkable.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Expected another brewery failure but git a quite decent strong beer. Deep golden colour, low head, smooth body. Nose of mild hops. Taste of light malt, honey, bread, caramel and strong alchol.

Jonb5 (395) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2013
Bronze to pale auburn colour, small thin tanned head faded fast, clear. Aroma was initially weak, I detected some caramel and brown sugar as it warmed. Tasted caramel, brown sugar and molasses, finish was slightly peppery. Medium body, smooth, slight bite from the carbonation. Overall not the worst, a fairly dark Maerzen which came from a screw top bottle which is probably the most memorable thing about it.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2012
#315 Kupferfarben wie leckeres Altbier mit feinem weißen Schaum. Blumig-malzig-getreidig duftet der Stoff. Der Antrunk ist seidenweich und vollmundig nach Malz, das durch eine schöne Würze abgepuffert wird. Im relativ kurzen Abgang kommt eine trockene Hopfenherbe auf und rundet das Gesamtbild stimmig ab. Wahrlich urwürzig dieser Aloisius; gutes Märzen! Test vom 4.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,12,11,10,11 - 11,05

stevoj (2336) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Nice flavor of roast grains, with hints of toffee, caramel and butterscotch. Sweetish with very mellow bitterness, nice amber color, but aroma was faint. Very pleased with this brew. Tasty!

Bottle, xmas 2009 chez mowbeer, what a host! Amber with a minimal head; rusty tinny aroma with hints of caramel, red currant and some vanilla. Unexciting

(bottle) pours a clear copper colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of peaches and dark fruit, herbal hops, sweet spices, caramel and a hint of milk chocolate. flavour is mostly the same, quite grassy, with notes of caramel, dried fruit and light roasted malts. medium-bodied with average carbonation.
