Erzengel (5800) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2015
50cl can from Coop, St. Gallen. The beer starts fresh and grainy. Not too intense but fresh with a nice bitterness in the end. Smooth with a soft and mild body. The aftertaste is round and fresh, hints of grain, moderate bitterness, nice.

anstei (435) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 15, 2015
50cl can. Usually called the best Swiss industrial lager, and actually living up to its reputation if you ask me. Still not a beer worth trying by any means.

Jasnozłote piwo o puszystej ale cienkiej pianie. W smaku łagodne, orzeźwiające, lekko chmielowe i praktycznie bez goryczki.

Review: Can of Quöllfrisch hell 4.8%ABV Quöllfrisch Hell Lager is generally considered to be one of the best beers in Switzerland, coming from the spring waters of the Alps which guarantees a pure and natural brew. The aroma was of sweet grains, hops and lager yeasts, a really great beery smell, magnificent! Pours a nice pale clear golden yellow colour forming a nice frothy white head which sits perfectly making the beer look very drinkable. Good lacing was apparent and with a good body this beer looked the part. And now for the taste! For the taste buds it was mildly sweet at the front, and a good bit of a creamy flavour in the finish with a mild bitter hoppy aftertaste which I enjoyed. A well balanced beer, that had a nice clean fresh feel to it. Think this beer is a great session brew, one of the best I have had in a while. Could imagine downing a few of these easy enough when hitting the town on a Friday night! Very smooth, not particularly strong but drinkable all the same, a lovely clean lager that does the business.
