Bottle. Golden beer with a good head and a fizzy body. The aroma is bitter and yeasty, and the flavour is very well hopped with a long bitter finish. Overall a really good well hopped golden beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (2397) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
500ml bottle, BBE April 2015
Golden in the glass with a white head. The beer starts smooth and very floral-fruity. The mainpart is smooth, fruity-floral, Golden Ale typical, smooth. The aftertaste is slightly bitter-dry, fruity with lots of floral hop aroma.
A very nice Golden Ale. Full, fruity and great flora-hoppy. --> 12/12/12/12

Move tasting though light strength pale ale. Slightly too much fizz for me, but further sign of improving Irish brewing.
