On can in Crete, served ice cold. Golden color, good foam. Low aroma intensity; boiled vegetables, some malt. Light body & complexity. Feels crisp and refreshing on this beatiful summer day. I don't wanna ruin it by letting it heat up. Better then expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Tiefgoldene Farbe. Geruch metallisch und leicht hopfig. Weich und aber nicht wässrig, schöne Konsistens. Nicht sichtbare Carbonisierung, aber reichlich Prickeln auf der Zunge. Geschmacklich angenehm pilsig, mit schönem hopfen und leichtem malzaroma.

Nice refreshing beer but nothing special. Probably best drunk on a Greek beach after a lazy day in the sun rather than at home. Nose is pretty tinny and cardboardy. Taste is surprisingly sweet, like a boiled sweet, with only a hint of hoppiness. But the aftertaste is quite satisfying with a nice maltiness which belies the light golden colour. Probably 3.5 rating if I was in Greece with a plate of fresh fish :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden colour with no head. Soft texture, quite easy to drink. Light , sweet malts. Fairly fresh and pleasant for a lager.

Erzengel (7759) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 28, 2016
Bottle from Carrefour in Cyprus 🇨🇾. The beer starts neutral smooth. A bit of grain, a bit of sweetish malts. Sessionable, round. Not much bitterness, a bit metallic but very nice.

Botella 500ml en Falasarna, Creta. Palida, dorada, cristalina casi sin espuma. Olor metálico y algo de grano. Sabor también metálico y un poco herbal pero sin cuerpo, aguada. Típica lager estándar europea o meditarranea.
