Wie erwartet nicht der groe Knaller, eher was angenehm Ses fr zwischendurch. Mild und leicht im Karamell, dazu etwas Malz und Schoko. Trinkbar, aber langweilig.

Erzengel (8242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2013
27,5cl bottle mild-malziger Antrunk, leicht slich, sehr sffig. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier vollmundiger, dabei trockene Rstmalznoten zusammen mit einer milden Herbe, die allsamt gut den geringen Alkoholgehalt und die daraus resultierende leichte Wssrigkeit berdecken. Der Nachgeschmack ist mild-weich, rstmalzig-angenehm zusammen mit einer feinherben Note. --> Sehr leckeres dunkles Mild Ale! 12/13/13/13
