Scopey (5557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. It pours clear brown with a medium, fizzy beige head. The nose is toasty, sour malts, coffee grounds and brown bread. The taste is toasty, brown bread, coffee grinds, caramel, sour malts and earth with a dry, mildly acidic finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty basic stuff. Sour coffee is dominant flavour. Meh.

Fassbier at Brewpub. Brown with small tan head. Aroma of grain. Light body with some malt sweetness and some very light notes of roasted malt. A little one noted.

Erzengel (1949) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2013
Der Antrunk ist leicht malzig und deutlich säuerlich. Der Hauptteil wird malzig-sauer und ganz leicht herb. Im Nachgeschmack wird da Bier auch nicht viel voller, der Geschmack bleibt die ganze Zeit fast unverändert. Im Abgang ganz leicht herb.
--> Mir ist das Bier zu flach und langweilig!

Wanja (567) - GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
On tap ( 0.5 l ) at brewpub, Frankfurt... Clody dark color, good head... Untypical sour aroma, the sweet malt dark beer aroma is missing... Too sour for a German dark beer... The Helles us quite better...

Nekronos (3603) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 6, 2013
Not so nice as the helles. It was a little incipit. Considering the GErman tradition, it was dirnkable but something was missing.

trapped (604) - TURKEY - OCT 5, 2013
Drought at Zwolf Apostel brewpub. Dar amber with small beige foamy head, coffee aroma, fizzy, with surprisingly flat tasten one wonders what has happened to the coffee which has given the aroma! Abrupt and uninspiring finish. Tastes like a brewer’s training asssignment, very disappointing.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2010
(draught at the brewpub) Hazy, chestnut colour with a short and slightly beige foamy head. Dusty and ashy, slightly toasty malty nose with grassy and herbal hops in the background. Light-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Ashy malty taste with dusty notes and herbal hops; quite slim malty and delicately hoppy finish. 04.V.10
