Darwenus (826) - Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2012
An OK ale, if not a particularly memorable one. It pours with a lot of color (or, uhh... colour) and it smells good, but the taste delivers nothing beyond the aroma’s dry exposition. There’s malt and citrus up front, and grassy hops provide a little edge on the back end.

Erzengel (7323) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2016
In cask @ Heathrow Terminal 5. Great smooth beginning. Hints of nuts and malty ale. Round and refreshing, not much bitterness, round, dry with caramel and nuts and a nice bitter ale finish!

McWorta (1339) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 2, 2015
Copper-amber colour with a pillowy small off white had. Aromas of some sweetbread, malt and light citrus-floral notes arise. Lightly carbonated, bit thin texture and a light-medium body. Short sweetness makes way for some bitterness, all finishes though pretty quick.
