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.

Bottled. Deep golden colour, big creamy head. Aroma is grassy, yeasty, fruity and has some wooden notes in it. Flavour is big time grassy and flowery hops with some minor notes of fruits, caramel and spices. Quite earthy and bready finish.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 21, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Amber color with creamy head. Caramelly and nutty aroma with notes of tobacco and floral dry hops. Sweet caramelly and toasty flavor with dull notes of dry hops. Spicy, yeasty and unclean flavor. BB date is month ahead but seems to be oxidised.

Bottled (BB 05/2008)
Golden color, small white head. Hoppy nose, grassy. Starts very Czech pils like then good burst of hops in the finish. Nice malt profile. Doesn’t show much alcohol. Nice.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2008
(Bottled) Very hazy amber with a medium, creamy and lacy head. Strongly floral-lemony-hoppy aroma with fruity maltiness. Pale-malty, floral-hoppy flavor with a long, dry and bitter finish. Medium body with creamy mouthfeel. A nicely dry and hoppy ale. Could be a bit crispier and even drier, but very nice still.

Wanderer (33) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2008
Soft redish color. complicated spicey composistion. The long hoppey profile profile helps you find your way through this maze of spices.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 8, 2008
Reddish amber with a high and dense head. Floral and fruity aroma: apple, kiwi and mandarin plus some caramel. The flavour starts out sweet with perfume notes and moves into an acceptable but not very potent bitterness. Schopenhauer would have wanted an IBU at about 1000, if it were to imitate his bitterness.

slemmert (20) - Slagelse, Flakkebjerg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2008
UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 A great brew. Combines noble and American hope culture. Orange hazy colour. Nice balance between malt and hops.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Dark orange colored with hazy appearance. Big yellow head. Rich aroma with fine hops and floral fruits, good PA aroma with even some licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor also starts with sweet caramel and some brown sugar, aftertaste turns to strongly hopped with floral yeastiness. Fine brew, maybe not fully balanced.
