Pours a darker brown than is usual for a brown ale. No head in spite of beig poured from a tap. Light, roasted, smoky notes in the aroma. Pretty crisp texture. Scorched flavor. Zinc notes. Not good.

Erzengel (2399) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
Very dark in the glass with a beige head. The beer starts malty dry with a nice refreshing sour note. The mainpart is malty-dry and slightly sourish. In the aftertaste the beer is nicely dry, nearly no sweetness with hints of roasted malt. Thereby refreshing sourish nice.
A very interesting ale! Nice and highly drinkable. --> 12/12/12/12
