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.

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.

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.

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.

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
