Bottle, dark brown with a big cream head and a malt and toffee nose. Body is rich and sweetish with toasty malt, notes of dark fruit and caramel. Light hoppiness in the aftertaste. Like a lagered fruity mild.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml Bottle drank on 23 Feb 2013 in Berlin.
Grubby brown looking brew: not fully clear or clean looking. Off-white head that didn’t hang around for a closer inspection.
Malty, dirty nose: not unpleasant, but not pleasant either.
The taste was also a dirty malt flavour with hints of hop bitterness towards the end of each gulp. Grainy and earthy feel from the start, different and worth finding: not great but certainly worthy of trying if you come across it in your travels.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma delicato per questa birra tedesca. Colore ambrato/scuro, pochissima schiuma, scarsa carbonatazione e corpo veramente leggero. Un boun sapore di malto caramellato, forse anche zucchero di canna, con un finale forse troppo dolce. Tutto sommato, corpo, frizzantezza, schiuma, colore la potrebbero rendere una birra piuttosto anonima, trova invece, proprio nel sapore, una sua personalità. --- Delicate aroma for this German beer. Amber / dark, very little foam, low carbonation and body really light. A boun taste of caramel malt, maybe even sugar cane, with a final maybe too sweet. All in all, body, carbonation, foam, the color could make a beer rather anonymous, is instead, just in flavor, its own personality.

500 ml screwcap bottle from the Poetzsch border shop near Kruså / Flensburg. ABV is 5.3%. Pours fizzy. Fairly dark brown colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant and fresh malty aroma, hints of ripe Nordic fruits and fresh bread. The flavour is malty with notes of brown bread and caramel, also some fruity notes, decent hops in the finish. One of the better beers from Crailsheimer Engelbräu.

Clear brown, white head. Aroma of fruit, malt and wheat. Taste is like a combination of a dunkel weizen and a keller. Banana, wheat, caramel malt. Watery and low carbo.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Just another mediocre and bit below average from Engel. But skunky like all of them.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown in colur with creamy and steady head. Smooth body. Nose of malt. Taste of honey on brown bread, roasted toasts, malt and brown sugar. Easy to drink but nothing special at all.
