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.

MesandSim (7118) - 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.

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.

BlackHaddock (5070) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
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.

Arve_Christian (4012) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2012
On 50 cl bottle from Drinks of the World, Zurich. Dark golden color, good foam. Distinct, but integrated hoppy aromas (pine), some fruitiness and light citrus notes- caramel & vanilla notes. Medium body & complexity. Solid bitterness, well balanced. Very enjoyable

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