formerly known as "Aria". In order to make it right: Aria has nothing to do with Aryan! Aria stands for Altbier recipe launched interesting. So it is a dark beer, a top-fermented beer with an amber appearance. It is full-bodied flavor and a pleasant hoppy bitterness, and I am including the hop dosing (I use only hops or hops pellets, best quality) not only to the bitterness, but also to taste the hops value.

DrDrood (37) - GERMANY - JAN 24, 2015
Rötlich bernsteinfarben mit stabiler feinporiger Schaumkrone. Hefe, Malz und Zitrusaromen liegen einem in der Nase. Auch geschmacklich hat der gestopfte Citra Hopfen seine Spuren hinterlassen. Erfrischend, leicht spritzig mit einem lang anhaltenden Aroma von Zitrusfrüchten.

Tayeth (667) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2014
Sehr angenehmes Zitrusaroma, vom Geschmack her säuerlich-kräuterig, leicht adstringierend, etwas merkwürdiger Nachgeschmack.

Erzengel (9083) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 6, 2014
Thanks to kappldav123 for this bottle. Amber in the glass. The nose is Altbier-typical and malty. The beer starts smooth and malty. Nice typical Altbier-yeast character, but the bitterness is too low for a good Altbier. The maltiness and the dryness is nearly perfect.
Nice Altbier! Highly drinkable with the typical yeast-characteristics. Probably a bit too much in the "GB Ale"-direction. --> 13/12/13/13

Taste comprises bitter fruits, pithy orange, caramel, dank tones, peach, mango, light soap. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so.
