Our flagship pale ale. Completely authentic in style, bursting with fresh whole flower American hops and yeast. Immediately present and fragrant nose dominated by a spicy bouquet of toasted caramel, citrusy notes. Rich Copper in color, delivering that expected caramel palate, complemented by residual malty sweetness and lingering finish. Expect a world class Pale Ale.

Eher dunkelrot, leicht trüb. Recht fester langer Schaum. Stark hopfig nach roten Früchten, wenig Zitrone, leichte malzigsüss und Gewürze. Leicht cremig, mittelvoll, gut Co2, wenig Säure. Von Anfang bis Schluss sehr bitter, aber sehr gut von leicht fruchtiger malzsüsse unterstützt. Schöner leicht trockener Abgang.

Très belle ambrée orangée, belle mousse persistante et se déposant sur les parois. Carbonation moyenne. Arôme de caramel avec citrus et un peu résineux. En bouche, pareil le côté citrus est balancé par la douceur du goût caramel. Une amertume en fin de bouche surprenante, qui rend la bière moins balancée mais ça ajoute de l’intérêt et du caractère. J’apprécie.
