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.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a clear dark amber with a frothy beige head with nice lacing. Smells earthy, with some roasted malt, caramel and a little bit soapy or dusty. Tastes of a mildly bitter caramel, a surprisingly fitting blend, with some earthiness to it. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Oily texture. Finishes dry.

d07c0m (89) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
Golden orange with good billowy head. Deliciously roasty and toasty malt flavors coupled nicely with very fresh hop flavors and aromas. Very true to the style. Excellent stuff.

jonas (5615) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle, thank you very much Julian! Orange, a few clouds - the bottle gushed a bit, big lacing eggshell head. Nice citrus, mango and mineral aroma. Good chewy nourishing body - Some american microbrewers could learn something here. Nice citric and piney hops, minerally leafy notes, dry yeasty on the tongue. Grassy aftertaste. Good one.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
A Mes rate. Bottle from Bachser Mart and drunk in the Novotel in Zürich.
Attractive amber brown colour with a decent white head that settles quickly to a thin film. Malt upfront again with a good earthy, nutty character. Light hoppy overtones with some delicate grassy bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and easy drinking. Decent stuff.

Comment? My absolute favorite. To be enjoyed with very good friends only. Always have a stock somewhere. If not, go get some.

Cool label. Beautiful clear amber color. Nose of toasted caramel and freshly harvested wheat. Slightly creamy palate finish. Lasting hop aroma.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2011
Bottled, thank Bov! Hazy amber, mid sized head. Gentle hop aroma with grapefruit and canteloupe. Dry with light-medium body. Soft bready malt covered with a wealth of grapefruity hops, long salty bitterness. Balanced and very moreish. Nice and uncomplicated.
