Erzengel (7925) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
On cask @ Fountain Inn, St. Sampson, GY. Cloudy dark yellow in the glass, smooth and fresh beginning. Nice ale characteristics with only hints of malt. Easy to drink and not too sweet. The mainpart is smooth, ale bitterness together with a smooth hint of malt. The aftertaste is malty, smooth-dry, nicely bittered. Dry malt with a nice ale bitterness remain on the tongue together with hints of sourness.
Much better and more round than the bottled version! 13/12/13/13

A Mes rate. Cask handpull from the Market Porter as La Piette Patois 4.5%.
A clean red amber with a slim but decent white head and some inky lace. Bitter and musty, good hops but fairly restrained. Some nice and fruity malt in the background. Good dry palate and very well balanced. Tasty.
