COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cloudy dark amber liquid with a big white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of British marmalade with hints of toffee, could be stronger. The taste is quite bitter-sweet reminding me once again of British marmalade. Medium carbonation with lots of tiny bubbles and medium mouth feel. Pretty long bitter after-taste. I can see why the brewery prefers not to call it an APA since it’s definitely more of a hybrid between English and American brewing traditions.

Very nice aroma with floral and hops. Pours orange cloudy (Unfiltered) with nice off-white head. Medium sweet with full body. Lots of Hops and OK bitterness. Will drink it again!

LoFi (1592) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle. Amber with a beige head leaving lacing. Aroma: biscuits, dry grass, light sour, what fruit?, floral. Taste: quite bitter, light sour, grass and hay, orange zest, floral and soapy bitterness, a feeling of pollen. Medium-bodied, a slightly grainy feel to it. Not a personal favourite.

Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
En god APA. Smak av honung, tropisk frukt, främst persika och aprikos. Lagom sötma och humle med en riktigt fin grapebeska som ligger kvar länge, länge på tungan.

En gyllengul APA. Fruktig doft av aprikoser, persika och röd grape. Rejäl grapebeska, stor fruktighet, rena fina smaker och en fin grapeeftersmak. Väldigt välgjord och smakrik utan att vara en humlebomb.
