JoeinDahlem (1454) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2016
Clear amber-red beer with some lush foam that diminished to wisps, and buttery whiffs of diacetyl off the top. A recurring issue in my encounters with this brewery. Some tangy sweet caramel taste and moderate bitterness beneath the slick buttery character, which annoys. Drink it from a Steinkrug and convince yourself that’s rustic character.

kevnic2008 (11354) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2014
Dark yellow colour. Medium head. Malty, honeyish sweet, yet hoppy aroma. Quite balanced taste, initially medium sweet and malty, but moving pretty fast into a delicate floral hoppiness with a lasting hop-bitter finish.

Erzengel (7758) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2014
Schöne, dunkelgoldene Farbe im Glas. Der Geruch ist würzig-süßlich. Im Antrunk ist das Bier leicht würzig und interessant herb. Zum Hauptteil entfaltet sich eine würzige, aber relativ trocken-malzige Note zusammen mit einer leichten, aber sich gut eingliederneden Herbe. Der Nachgeschmack bleibt lange auf der Zunge, er ist angenehm würzig und leicht malzig-trocken-herb.
--> Ein sehr interessantes Weihnachtsbier – nicht so übertrieben würzig-süß wie andere Vertreter dieser Klasse. Sehr angenehm und lecker! Vielen Dank an wastl!
