Bottles in Palaiokastritsa, Corfu. Congealed candlewax, raffia, almond, glue and lemon hints aroma (probably mozzie repellant)- pretty unappetising.. Couldnt drink this the other night; tonight I’m struggling- bilious regurgitated sweetcorn, licked stamp and gluey, brackish rancid fat/almond flavour. Pale gold with a wisp of halo. Flat, fatty, lacking fizz or corn sweetness, even.. I’ve had better bottles, but this is a rancid, sub-Albanian mess.

From the bottle poured into white wine glass. Skunky Lager nose, malty, wett hay... Not more. Taste is light bitter, watery, malty. Finish is light bitter hops but only faint. Meh..

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 (7274) - 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.

Helder lichtgeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter hoppig en ietwat waterig. Standaard dorstlesser, er zijn slechtere.

Sototumulo (20) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 24, 2016
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.
