Erzengel (6230) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2014
Cask @ GBBF 2014. Smooth fresh beginning. Nice malty body, fresh easy to drink with a nice smooth ale background over a malty, not too dry body. Fresh, easy to drink and smooth. The aftertaste is malty-fresh, not too deep, but nicely balanced. Nice!

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at the the Union Inn in Cowes. Starting off with a bit of crispy hops and some malty nuts. Bit dull and lacking some carbo. This s maybe a picture of a perfect ale but it could be more crispy , hoppy and fresh.

On cask at The Union Inn in Lewes. Pours out in a brown colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of light but bitter hops, citrus, nuts and spruce. Crispy finish. Not a bad one.

On tap @ Beer Bistro Toronto. Pours a clear light brown with a small off-white head and little to no carbonation. Aromas are black licorice and a little plastic funk. Tastes are toffee/caramel, roastiness, mild hops and somewhat metallic on the Black end. Very light bodied, light carbonation, and a short finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
