brugmanneke (277) - - JAN 12, 2013
(50 cl bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma of sweet fruits (almost like canned fruits with syrup), notes of caramel and honey, grain, walnuts, elderflower without the earthy character. Lemon zest in the finish. Taste is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Soft carbonation. Good! Interesting blend of aromas, sessionable.

Erzengel (1949) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
Thanks to Seanyfo for this bottle. The beer starts mild and Ale-typical with an interesting nice citrus aroma. The mainpart is a bit watery, but has beside the Ale a nice fresh lemon and flowery taste. The aftertaste is long, flowery-lemon, nice Ale-characteristics and a malty-dry ending.
Very nice and decent session-beer! --> 10/12/11/11

beeebon (142) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
As per the description, lemon zest and elderflower yet with a decent malt backing and a dry finish. A very decent beer and one I can imagine enjoying all the more in the summer months!

Scottishchris (121) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. This is a favourite Pours crystal golden with bubbly white head. Pine cones and herbs on the nose. This particular batch (bob jul 2105) is really herbal. Lemon and herbs. Great session beer.

mgajdaczewa (306) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Przyzwoity bitter. W zapachu lekka kwiatowa chmielowość, nutki karmelowe i wyraźna treść słodowa. W smaku podobnie, goryczka nie na pierwszym planie, nuty chlebowe, ziołowe easy drinker, wręcz lekko wodniste. Wszystko gra, ale szału nie ma.
