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.

This pale ale has a slightly strange earthy taste, but it probably comes from the hops. Dark golden coulor with a fine white head. Hoppy aroma.

Sammy (9189) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2009
Pours a medium appearance with a good sized head. Mild hop aroma. Medium mouthfeel, understated hop flavour, however it is enjoyable drinkable and somewhat complex. Not the best pale, but a good one.
