0.33l can from trade with Misow. Yeah, no big surprises on the looks here. It’s clear, crystal clear actually with some lager unfiltered particles floating and a big white lager head. Sweet and corn infused on the lagerish nose. It does not smell bad at all, but I have to say that there is not much originality put in to this. Corn and a little sour hint in the background. Let’s taste it! Hmm.. Yeah, no resistance there what so ever. Again an example of a brewer that unfortunately hop doses his batches with a tea spoon instead of a bucket. Well, it’s not a bad lager at all, but my oh my it’s so dull and boring! 30.08.2013

Erzengel (7335) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2013
33cl glass bottle. Thanks to kevnic2008.
The beer is bright golden in the glass, nice malty nose. The beer starts mild, not too hoppy. Highly drinkable. The main part has a bit more flavour, nice malts, not too bitter, typical for a pale lager. The aftertaste is medium, a slightly bit malty-grainy, slightly hoppy.
--> typical and good pale lager --> 12/12/11/12

Overall just another light larger, not much to add. Watery I’m afraid, no mega characteristics.

[5/5/13] Can at my hostel room in Copenhagen. Thanks Nisse666. Yellow-straw color with almost no head. Aroma of corn, vegetal notes and a bit of metal. Flavor has a bit of sweetish corn and light bitterness, a bit metallic. Light-bodied.
