COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bartlebier (1880) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2013
50cl bottle courtesy of Allan, danke! - It’s toasted...Lucky Strike of a US amber ale with pleasant roasted caramel and piny hop notes, a dry mouthfeel, slight marred milky palate. Unusual aniseed notes showing up in the aftertaste rather than citrus.

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.
