Erzengel (2341) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle conditioned. Orange-trüb steht es im Glas, fast weißer Schaum. Geruch ist trocken- ale-typisch, leicht muffig. Im Antrunk zeigt sich das Bier trocken, leicht wässrig mit ale-typischen Tönen. Der Hauptteil ist hefig-mild, ale-trocken, leicht süßlich mit feinherben Einschlägen. Im Nachgeschmack bleibt die aletypisch trockene Note zusammen mit der leicht süßlichen Herbe und mild-weicher Hefe. Insgesamt aber recht mild-leicht.
--> Nettes Bier, dem es etwas an Aromentiefe fehlt, wäre die typische Ale-Note nicht vorhanden, wäre es wesentlich zu wässrig-körperlos. So gerade noch auf der Grenze.
--> Nettes, durstlöschendes Bier im Sommer, ich vermisse etwas Tiefgang und Aromenvielfalt.
(Test vom 20.2.2011) --> 12,9,13,9,12,9 - 10,05

thewolf (11114) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2013
Tap @ Café Klein, Kolding. Pours clear, dark caramel amber with a medium, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has light butter, grass, doughy, caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry and a bit light mouthfeel. Flavour has good caramel, some butter, soft but bitter grass. Okay.

Ruprecht_007 (572) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 23, 2013
Barva: zlatá světlejší. Pěna: středně hustá, držící. Vůně: velice příjemná sladová. Chuť: poměrně hodně hořký nástup, hutnější pivo s plným tělem a slůadovým pozadím, ze kterého vystupují výrazné chmelové tóny a lehký náznak grepové příchutě, střední říz. Celkem slušný ale.

kidmartinek (3513) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Light, translucent golden color with lots of bubbles and a white head. Aroma is faint straw and sweet, grassy malt. Light body. Most of the "taste" is just in the bitter finish.

JorgeLee (1139) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle, I think from Waitrose. Light golden colour, quite high carbonation, rapidly vanishing head. More basic Youngs character, dryish malt, light hops. Well balanced but a bit anonymous. Went well with my beef and ale pie.

zacgillbanks (2099) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Bottle from Loco Supermarket, Newcastle. A hazy golden ale with a malty, slight toffee and fruity flavour followed by a dry, citrus and biscuity finish.

Nice looking beer. Pours with a golden colour with minimal head. Pleasantly drinkable with a slight bitter twang.

Docela dobré ale, světlá barva, sametová chuť. Pěna slabší. Lahváč z pivoňky.
