Much worse than the slightly older OB Blue. A pathetic attempt at a German-style lager. A truly pretentious beer if there ever was one. The pour is awful, with almost no head. The taste is surprisingly bitter, but not in a good way as if drinking a delicious pale ale. Bottle or tap does not make a difference. Overall all I give this beer a 1 for pretentious advertising out of its class, being overpriced for what it is, and of course for tasting like absolute garbage. Please bring back OB Blue, for even though it was cheap "Bud-like" beer, it was drinkable and it was what it meant to be.

Pretty foamy for the style. Tastes like a can of tinned corn with some booze mixed in.

Sweet malty pilsener, not much else to say about this. Backlog from 2014/05/14.

Butelka, kolor złoty, klarowny piany brak. Lekki słód w aromacie jak i w smaku, słodkawe, goryczka minimalna, do wypicia ale słabe.

Sharp hop aroma. Pale golden color. Thick lacing bit unexpected. Malty thick taste bit of bitterness bit just a bite.

Earthy, malty aroma. Clear yellow little head. Umami and a little sweet. Quite average beer

330ml bottle from an oriental shop. 4.8% BB Dec 2015, "experience depth of richness". Hazy dark yellow, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is sugary water, icing sugar, wet leaves. Body is light, foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is bubblegum, tangy metallic malts, paper, a little earth. Some tinned sweetcorn - like if you tried to eat the tin as well. Very watery. Too foamy in the mouth. Pretty poor.

Bottle. Small white head atop clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light honey. Taste is moderately sweet, bread, light honey. Soft light body, nice match for my Korean BBQ.

Bleurgh, Just bleurgh, Only beer available in the Korean Air lounge at the airport and it’s just a glass of nothing. Stuck to Bud and that’s saying something.

Erzengel (9759) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2015
Smooth and sweetish beginning. Crisp, hints of malt, nice light bitterness in the end. Not too much body, but quite full, not too sweetish, hints of grain with a light bitter but crisp and dry aftertaste. Solid for a Korean Lager.
