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.

Bit flat version of an American pale ale. Thin body of malt, with some mild hopping. Needs more power.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: proper ale, subtle, reminds me of Mandarina Bavaria hop.
Appearance: beautiful golden orange color, little foam, way too much CO2
Taste: more English than American, with strong blonde/Starkbier aftertaste, tons of vanilla, not a session beer
Palate: notes of sweet hoppy bitterness, yet more prominent is the bitterness from alcohol. Disappointment.
Overall: should be repackaged as English Pale Ale / Blonde Ale, good for airports but not for craft indulgence
