Draft at the brewery. Pours clear copper brown with a bubbly, frothy off white head. Tastes nutty, creamy, malty, slightly sweet and buttery. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells nutty and malty, slight booze.

firemarshal (153) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle into shaker. Copper, clear, effervescent. Malty aroma, floral hops, licorice. Medium sweet taste, bubblegum, very smooth, sweet finish. Overall it’s a flat taste with nothing much going on. I’ll pass next time.

MarcoDL (2144) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
I’ts indeed better than a lager, but it’s inferior to the more special Flying Dog beers. Just a normal, mildly hoppy American lager.

FriendOfBeer (86) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Sweet floral and bready aroma. Dark orange appearance. Immediate taste is fruity, fades quickly away into notes of grain, light bitter aftertaste. Very short finish. Overall drinkable, nothing significant stands out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
Rating from 2010: Toller leicht süßlicher Karamellgeruch. Der Antrunk ist etwas wässrig, zum Hauptteil wird das Bier aber vollmundiger, angenehm säuerlich-malzig und ganz leicht herb. Im Nachgeschmack tritt auch die Karamellnote des Geruchs auf – eine schöne, milde Karamellherbe, schön weich-kremig kommt durch. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine mild-bittre Note von süßlichem Schokoladenkaramell
→ Klasse Bier, das aber sein volles Potential erst im Nachgeschmack entfaltet! --> 12+12+13+12 = 12,15

don’t understand why people are so down on this beer. great creamy head, soft malt flavors, floral and mild hop profile, very drinkable as long as you don’t get an oxidized bottle.

Pours a dark golden color with a small head. Smoothe beer...finishes with Carmel taste.

Decent body. Moderate sweetness and slight hop presence. Hops up front and decent bite. Nice amber, not too sweet...but slightly lacking middle.
