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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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....
