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.

Deep copper, small creamy head. Sweet fruity hops on the nose. Quite lively on the tongue, needs a bit of a swirl. Decent sweet malts, prominent bitter hops, some soapiness. Leaves a tingly hoppy and slightly soapy finish. Good to the bottom of the glass, but leaves me a bit sticky and needing a drink.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
best before 23.05.08. nice aroma at first (hoppy) but then i got some aged beer below that.. being that it’s not exactly fresh, it could be expected. looks great. clear dar yellow and a giant lasting vanilla-white head with small bubbles. flavor : hoppy hoppy bitter. yummy. a little watery but in a very refreshing way. bitterness is aslo a little sweet (caramel+something good i don’t know how to describe) aftertaste lasts forever. beneath the bitterness i get some fruit.

A hoppy ale with a fresh taste. The palate is gentle and the flavor is bitter, a tad edgy and energy giving. Maybe not spectacular, but my favorite of the Djævlebryg.

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.

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.
