3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml brown bottle, from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Orange pour, hazy. Quite a lot of off white foam on top, tons of lacing. Nose has some spicy hops, orange peels, caramel sweetness. Taste has caramel malt base, touch of toasted grain, big zesty orange peel, slight grapefruit and spicy piney hop. Bitterness come in late, finishes pretty dry. Not much alcohol showing. Medium body with a lot of carbonation. Overall not bad, carbonation could be toned down a bit and the hops ramped up a bit, but this is quite drinkable.

330ml Can from Drinks of the World, Basel (5.30 CHF):
This one was a beer I was looking forward to but instantly became unsure of as I poured the can & it looked a lot darker than I’d pictured in my head given I was expecting a standard American IPA. Thankfully the beer was one that grew on me, especially by the time I got to the taste with the darker malts & roasted flavours perfectly balanced against some pine & citrus hops with a little sweetness & sugar thrown in for good measure. It was definitely an unusual take on the style but it went down a treat & was easily on of the better beers I tried on my trip to Switzerland; great stuff & one well worth looking out for.
