(From notes)

Pours with a murky copper-orange color; with a thinner white head that does not stick around at all. No real lacing to speak of either.

Has a light malty sweetness to the aroma and is followed by some light earthy hop bitterness. Not much to report on either the aroma or flavor, but it was a fairly clean brew. Didn't really pick up on any cereal flavors; some fruitiness and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Medium to thinner MF with softer carbonation, and a dry finish. Not a bad brew, and definitely go for this above the blonde or wit. Easy enough drinking, and nothing 'off', just don't expect a solid hop presence.

Served in a taster glass

Enjoyed at Les Brasseurs while visiting Geneva, Switzerland. Second in the flight of all five beers available on-draft while visiting.

Note: This beer reads "double malt" on the menu after the name.

A: Golden copper. Thin (bubbly white) head.

S: Amber malt, caramel, unrippened apples. More malt sweetness.

T: Much like it smells, but a very pronounced caramel with a small bitter finish. Loads of malt, but it doesn't go well together for me.

M: Medium body with light carbonation.

O: Malt. Malt. And more malt - hence the 2x malt label in the name. Needs a bit more hop and bitter characters in my mind to be okay. As such, just below average.

250ml served from the tap to its own chalice.

The best that you can have from Les Brasseurs. At least this one smells and tastes like real beer.

A: Cloudy copper-orange color. Medium white head. Low retention and few lacings

S: Caramel malts, yeasts and earthy hops

T: Pretty much like the nose. Light upfront sweetness. Quite bready. Caramel malts

M: Medium body and medium to low carbonation

D: Not bad. Personal remark: A bit more of bitterness would be welcomed

I had this on tap at Les Brasseurs in Geneva. It was served in a small chalice.

This had a burnt copper color, with a clingy white head. It smelled a little more robust than the blonde, with some roasted malt aroma. Pretty good malty sweet flavor, well balanced with some hops in the after-taste. Well carbonated like the blonde and just as easy to drink.

I recommend this over the blonde if you need to find some authentic Swiss microbrew.
