COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Das Hop Gun ist von einer intensiven Kastanienfarbe mit einem hellen, am Glas haftenden Schaum. Geruchlich dominieren fruchtige Noten nach Pfirsich, Rosinen und Amarenakirschen, gepaart mit leichtem Karamell. Am Gaumen ist das Camba Hop Gun leichtfüßig und erfrischend. Durch die Zugabe typischer amerikanischer Hopfensorten entsteht ein ausbalanciertes Zusammenspiel aus fruchtigem Cocktail und wohldosierter Hopfenbittere, das im Nachtrunk mit leichten Karamellnoten ausklingt.

Bottle. Not really hop gun, maybe the bottle was old but aroma was mainly malty with touch of flowery? Hops. In taste medium sweet, caramel with more hops, solid bitterness in the finish. Maybe fresh would be better.

Russo (1902) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2015
Hazy dark amber with a big off-white head that keeps a nice lacing. Aroma is malty, hoppy and sweet, hints of caramel and roasted malt. Flavour is like aroma with more hoppy notes. Low carbonation, light to medium body with a sweet bitter finish.

McWorta (999) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 20, 2015
Copper-amber colour, lightly opalescent, fine pored frothy off white head. Aromas of toasted brioche, mango, peach, papaya, white sultanins develop. Light lively, soft, light velvety texture, medium body. Wheat bread sweetness up front with a building bitterness with a light astringent drying out center. Medium harmonic finish.

Estebanik (243) - Lublin, POLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Piękna, bujna i trwała piana. W aromacie słodowość i nieco chmielu pod postacią owoców tropikalnych. Może nieco arbuza i mandarynki. W każdym razie nie powala intensywnością. W smaku słodkie, ale co ciekawe, niezbyt pełne. Nie razi głębią smaku. W sumie zawód.

Brewery: Camba Bavaria, Truchtlaching, Germany *** Beer: Hop Gun (bottled, unfiltered, 330ml) *** Style: Brown Ale (?!) *** ALC.VOL.: 6.4% *** "Our hop gun boasts an intense chestnut colour with a bright, lasting head. The nose is dominated by peach, raisins and Amarena cherries. On the palate, the beer is light-footed [yes, that’s what it says] and refreshing." [brewery note, my translation] *** Colour: Hazy deep copper, medium off-white head. *** Nose: Raisins, ripe plums, lemon. Very mild medicinal notes. Sweetish and citrusy at the same time. *** Texture: Full body, a bit oily, but also medium carbonation. *** Taste: Oranges and plums at first, but with a strong accompanying citrusy note. Some herbs, some resin, some caramel. Sour notes gets more dominant towards the middle. Flatlines a bit towards the finish: Yeast and sour lemon, also in the lasting aftertaste. *** Impressions: Initially complex, fruity beer (closer to a stronger IPA than a brown ale, really), very appealing. Finish is mildly disappointing, but it’s a still a good, very drinkable beer.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2015
Pours Amber with a small white head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Taste is sweet but still has a bitter feeling. Palate is a bit too tasteless. Overall an okay beer.

Bov (10562) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2015
from Bier-Bienne - clear amber-brown beer under a creamy and long lasting beige foam; yeasty and bready aroma with some red fruity tones (tangerines dominate); medium to full malt backbone, some earthy bitterness and a long malty, nutty and prune-ish finish - closer to an irish ale than to a Brown Ale
