Editor’s note: Brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

Brewers note: This beer is NOT brewed as an American Pale Ale. It is not brewed to suit a certain style which is why we call it a "hoppy ale".

English: Both the British and Americans are good at using hops - in slightly different ways. We have combined the best from both traditions and created Schopenhauers Vilje ("Schopenhauer’s Will"), a beautiful amber coloured ale with a floral character, caramel notes and - like the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer - a good portion of bitterness. This brew can be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day, a cool evening or accompanied by e.g. poultry dishes.

Lubiere (11588) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2015
A reddish copper ale with a thick frothy lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, treacle, oxidation. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, light citrus pulp, light tropical fruits, light treacle, a bit of cardboard box. Not so good after 5 years. Bièropholie imports.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2015
A bitter ale without flavoring. Beautiful foamy. The taste is partially malty with hints of caramel that quickly moves to a hoppy aftertaste with notes of citrus and orange. Lovely pale ale, delicious, refreshing and tasty.

Bottle. Hazy golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of bread, herbs, earth. Mild taste of toffee, spicy hops, carrot(!). Bittersweet finish. Kind of a letdown.

CanIHave4Beers (3679) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours a hazy orange color with a big loose head & good lacing on the glass.

Aroma is faint, some caramel & orange... Lightly hoppy & inoffensive.

The flavor is pretty bitter, sorta soapy, with some fruity hoppiness & toasty malt.

Sparf (187) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Fruktig doft med bara lite humleton. Lite dammig doft mellan grapefrukt och äpple. Även en svag kola kan förnimmas. Färgen är orange-brun-bärnsten. Inte särskilt aptitlig. Disig brygd med ett för kort skum. I smaken framträder grapefrukten mer ovanpå en stadig och tämligen söt maltbas. Eftersmaken bibringar en tämligen kraftig och lite omotiverad humlebeska. Varken särskilt välkomponerat eller välbalanserat. Ger ett spretigt intryck, förutom kroppen som är fyllig och bra samt med en välavvägd kolsyra.

(Bottle). Aromas of sweet a bit stale over ripe tropical fruits and spices. The taste is fresh with a fine bitterness and hints of fruity and floral hops.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - JUL 14, 2013
Hoppy nose with a doughy freshness, amber color and a big spongy, rocky head. Soft cookie-dough malt taste with a large hop infusion but not too bitter. The bitterness builds on itself through the glass. Good balance, full body. Nice PA.

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Shared 0,5 l bottle courtesy of Sigmund. Hazy deep golden body with an off-white dense head. Earthy honey and berries on the nose. Papery bitterness, medium to full bodied, sharp mouthfeel. Grows in the mouth. Doughy texture. Finishes dry on the tongue.
