3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Coop, Crissier
Amber-copper color, bright, with generous creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, cereals, dust, yeast. The mouthfeel is very dry, the body is lean; harsh flavor of caramel, roasted malts, cereals; strong bitterness, but without noticeable hop qualities.
Correct brew, nothing special.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
from Coop, Biel - clear dark amber-bronze beer under a long lasting and firm beige foam; correct lacework; decently hoppy and malty aroma showing notes of biscuits, red fruits marmalade and a hint of spices; creamy palate and a good malt backbone; fairly bitter and slightly dry; long hoppy and gently spicy finish - very nicely balanced and deeply drinkable

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 50cl. Purchased in coop. Appearance: It pours a beautiful clear amber beer with a tall, nicely remaining lacing creamy light beige head. Good lacework. Aroma: Caramel, perhaps some diacetyl, earthy and citrusy hops, light orange, slight juniper notes. Taste and palate: Medium bodied. Subdued bitterness. Sweetish. Pleasant malt back. Gentle carbonation. Orange, juniper and cloves showing up. Medium bodied. Dryish finish which is reminiscent of hops which are high ond alpha acids and caramel. Overall impression: A nice take on the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cL bottle, bought in a supermarket. Appearance: Pours in a nice amber color with 1.5 finger frothy, tan head. Clear and no yeast sediment in bottle. Extremely long lasting head! Aroma: Malty, caramel and hop notes, a hint of orange (like East Kent Goldings hops). No off flavors. Taste: Caramel notes, light bitterness, hint of orange (like in the aroma). Palate: Light-medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish and a thin texture. Overall: Aroma improved while the beer warmed up. Really nice color and the foam lasted to the very end of the tasting. Solid APA! I would order a second one!
