Durch Staub und Sand kämpfend, gefährlichen Stürmen und der Hitze trotzend, hatten die „forty-niners“ nur ein Ziel vor Augen: Ihre Suche nach dem Gold. Wir haben unseres schon gefunden und bringen nun ein Hauch des kalifornischen Goldrauschs in die Schweiz. Das Gold Miner ist exklusiv in Pfäffikon ZH nach amerikanischem Braustil gebraut und nur begrenzt verfügbar. Dieses Golden Ale ist das ideale Sommerbier und ein absolutes MUSS bei jeder Grill-Party. Es ist ausschliesslich in 500ml Einweg-Flaschen erhältlich. Kräftig in der Farbe und doch erfrischend mild im Geschmack lässt es jeden Feierabend zum Fest werden

King_Alex_II (1095) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 15, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 Very little bitterness, full strong dominating malty body with little hop taste. There is a difficult to describe, taste beneath the rest that’s sadly not beneficial to the beer.

eduardovl (1302) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Pint glass. A: Pours an orange bit cloudy color forming a small beige head. Small retention and lots of lacings formed and left S: Sweet grains upfront with strong notes of orange zest and spices. Quite fruity. Flowery and earthy hops T: As the nose. Sweet caramel malts upfront. Quite fruity in the mouth too. Strong notes of orange, limes, orange zest. In overall, a light sweet and smooth ale in the mouth. Perfect hops bitterness balance. Medium and pleasant bitterness M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Fruity and bitter aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Even better than their APA. I don’t think it fits to an English Bitter, it’s too spicy and much less "malty" than a Bitter would be. In any case, very pleasant beer, a Swiss masterpiece [ BA Review @ 1/19/2013 ]
