Nutty toffee malt and hay aroma. Chestnut brown with minimal head. Moderately sweet nutty toffee malt and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Nice, solid bitter.

Not too good, not too bad it is only a moderate beer imho....I teied the bottle version and it says 5,2% alcohol...higher than the barrel version I believe ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask pour into a pint glass. Clear, dark amber colour with a short white head that dissipated quickly. Sweet crystal malt on the nose. Slight toffee flavour with hints of classic earthy/grassy English hops. Very low carbonation.

Good grief, have I really not rated this before? red-brown with a lacing head, pleasing dry hopsack aromas, earthy and malty-sweet with a faint sulphurous tang, it’s in excellent condition - if I could guarantee that, I’d drink it a lot more often.

Erzengel (8743) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2016
In cask @ Heathrow Terminal 5. Great smooth beginning. Hints of nuts and malty ale. Round and refreshing, not much bitterness, round, dry with caramel and nuts and a nice bitter ale finish!

Cask. An amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and fruit, leading to a bitter finish.
