COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber Lager

solidfunk (8943) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Very coppery, metallic taste. Some hops. Doesn’t come together wonderfully, though I’ve had a limited amount of these beers. Bottle at the Pub Aleman in Santo Domingo during a power blackout.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2009
Draught GBBF 09. An amber coloured beer with a sponge like whitish head. The aroma is malty biscuity with brown bread. The taste is quite rough burnt bread, fruitcake and oats. Undignified and a little unpleasant in the mouth in some ways.

3.7
Erzengel (8724) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Tolle dunkel-rubinrote Farbe im Glas. Selten ein Bier mit so einer ansprechenden Farbe gesehen!! Der Geruch ist malzig-würzig. Im Antrunk ist das Bier schön malzig mit leicht säuerlicher Note. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine angenehme Herbe hinzu, die sich aber gut mit der malzig-säuerlichen Note verbindet. Sehr süffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, herb-malzig mit schön angenehmer leichten Würzigkeit. Trocken.
→ Sehr leckeres Bier! 12/12/13/12
