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 (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, 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.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 8, 2011
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.
