Bottled (BB 11/2006)
Dark amber color, huge cloudy brownish head, lace. Slightly herbal, grassy nose. Light to medium-bodied. Graperuit bitterness is mixed with fruity and yeasty notes. Hops raise nicely in the aftertaste. This is a pilsener here in RB, but I would say that this is more like an ale, bitter maybe.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Golden/copper mixed colour with huge fluffy white head. Aroma is herbs, cooked vegetables and slight fruits. Flavour is strong grassy hops with a finish of herbs. Very bitter, not a pilsener or IPA, but as Bov says, very hard to categorize. I would say bitter or vienna...

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 recipe by the contract brewer "Augenbrauerei" in Biel/Bienne - pours a hazy amber colour under a solid, persistant foam; a robust herbal hoppiness with some light fruity tones underneath (cherry, grape); a medium malt backbone, a solid bitterness takes the power and persists very long, lasting for a long time after you are finished with your beer; more strong herbal notes are met in the aftertaste - a nice beer which is hard to categorize (a sort of crossover between a pils and an IPA)
