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.

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.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
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.

pivnizub (10179) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle (kindly donated by Quack-Duck!): Light amber coloured, hazy to cloudy, mid-sized "dirty" white head, herbal-hoppy nose with a distinctive bready-fruity background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, nearly medium-bodied, quite soft; lingering piney-hoppy finish with a malty counterpart. Good....

50 cl bottle @ wPBF, BBE 06/2013
Aroma is soapy with some peaches, grainy notes and hay. Also hints of caramel. Flavour is sweetish with fruity notes, some caramel, biscuits and gooseberry bush. Too messy and yeasty. Also the tartness does not fit here.
