Bouteille achetée Au Grain D?Orge - De couleur ambrée avec une belle mousse blanc cassé, qui tient bien - Au nez des arômes de caramel, de biscuit, bien malté, on sent aussi les houblons terreux et floraux, légèrement épicée, on reconnais les levure a lager - En bouche les houblons sont plus présent toujours terreux floraux et épicé, le malt apporte toujours cette petite touche caramel et biscuit - Corp léger, amertume moyenne, carbonation pétillante, sèche et crispy, final amère et terreux - une amber lager de qualité, mais pas extravagante non plus

Dark amber color, hazy, with generous head. Aroma of hops, and yeast. Good caramel flavor, lean, quite dry, with strong bitterness, some hop resins, light fruitiness from bitter oranges; there is also some chicory bitterness in the end.
Good.

Bier-Bienne 2 (la Bier de Biu)
Bottled 33cl. It pours a deep golden beer with a small head. The nose is mainly of almonds. Some vegetables sneaking in. Slightly acidic taste. Medium bodied. Dry finish. Faintly salty. Nicely nutty (almonds, walnuts), but unfortunately accompanied by some boiled vegetables. All in all an interesting decent brew.

Beautiful amber color, nice perlage. It has a quite good malt aroma, with some cereals. The cereals are more evident in the flavor; there is some malt and caramel too; it has a round mouthfeel. The bitterness is correct. A well executed English Ale, when other British brewery can’t bottle an equally good product.

Bottled (BB 11/2006)
Dark amber color, huge cloudy brownish head, lace. Slightly herbal, grassy nose. Light to medium-bodied. Graperuit bitterness is mixed with fruity and yeasty notes. Hops raise nicely in the aftertaste. This is a pilsener here in RB, but I would say that this is more like an ale, bitter maybe.

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Golden/copper mixed colour with huge fluffy white head. Aroma is herbs, cooked vegetables and slight fruits. Flavour is strong grassy hops with a finish of herbs. Very bitter, not a pilsener or IPA, but as Bov says, very hard to categorize. I would say bitter or vienna...

recipe by the contract brewer "Augenbrauerei" in Biel/Bienne - pours a hazy amber colour under a solid, persistant foam; a robust herbal hoppiness with some light fruity tones underneath (cherry, grape); a medium malt backbone, a solid bitterness takes the power and persists very long, lasting for a long time after you are finished with your beer; more strong herbal notes are met in the aftertaste - a nice beer which is hard to categorize (a sort of crossover between a pils and an IPA)
