COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Cheers Mat, shared on 23rd Aug 2014 at the Midlands meet. Good amber hue to the body, with a bit of an off-white head. Nice blend of aromas and flavours, caramel front with a citrus overtone throughout which gave a dry and bitter finish. Certainly the best beer I have had from Switzerland so far in my drinking life.

Final bottle at the inaugural Midlands Bottle Share @ Richie’s Hop Palace. Courtesy of myself, bought from Drinks of the World in Winterthur. Pours deep amber with frothy white head. Surprisingly hoppy taste, vibrant citrus with a bracing bitterness. Despite the comments below I quite liked this.

50 cl bottle poured into tall schooner. Aroma of bread, caramel, dough, doesn’t smell hoppy. Brown and cloudy, tan foam, quickly gone,minimal head. light sweetness, lightly sour, salty, without anything dominating. Quite balanced,full body, somewhat flat, long finish. I like it but not enough to drink regularly.
