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

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cL bottle, bought in a supermarket. Appearance: Pours in a nice amber color with 1.5 finger frothy, tan head. Clear and no yeast sediment in bottle. Extremely long lasting head! Aroma: Malty, caramel and hop notes, a hint of orange (like East Kent Goldings hops). No off flavors. Taste: Caramel notes, light bitterness, hint of orange (like in the aroma). Palate: Light-medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish and a thin texture. Overall: Aroma improved while the beer warmed up. Really nice color and the foam lasted to the very end of the tasting. Solid APA! I would order a second one!

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
