UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 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) Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottled 33cl. 5.0 ABV. It pours a beautiful amber beer with a nice off white head. The nose is of malt, banana, almonds, cereals, hops and cherries. Sweet fruity taste with a huge amount of cherries and almonds showing up - wonderful. Some banana sneaking in. Rather salty. Medium bodied. Good lacework. Bitter salty finish with hints of almonds and cherries. KimJohansen (10511) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2010

UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 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, 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.

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.
