Erzengel (8175) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2015
Many thanks to kevnic2008 for this bottle. The beer is malty-sweetish. Not too sweet but fresh with hints of caramel. Slightly bitter in the aftertaste. Nice sweetish-malty. Fresh, hints of grain, caramel malt. Nice round brew.

Ernest (7477) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Rated at the brewery/restaurant Nov 2011. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, husks, bread), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of paint, concrete, bubble gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Among the worst brews I had in the Bamberg region on this trip. Really clunky with a poor aftertaste. Very sad, just because I expect this place can do better.

Oakes (16105) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Pale with a thick head. The aroma is somewhat bready. Firm and dry with some vaguely doughy pale malt character. Good bock.
