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.

BlackHaddock (3657) - 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.

Embrouille (2827) - 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.

pivnizub (8805) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2012
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....
