Adler is the German word for Eagle. Also German are the generous helping of Spalt Hops, which are complimented by Czech Saaz. Both are noble hop varieties which are more often found in lagers. Canterbury ale malt and an English ale yeast adds the difference. Prost, Cheers, Na zdravi.
“Slightly hazy golden colour with a white head. The aroma, the aroma, the aroma: for a start there’s plenty of it. This is a gloriously aromatic ale whose aroma upon opening was that of passionfruit pulp (seeds and all) and then there was spices of ginger and garam masala. All through there was a tropical fruit salad and golden malt aroma that invited another, deeper sniff. Cool and a little sweet tasting at first and then awash with borage honey flavours. A second taste reveals more of the tropical fruits and spices and then the honey comes back again around the sides and back of the tongue. There is an enduring finish thanks to those honey flavours and then just a brief referral of spicy bitterness. It’s easy to write about this beer because there’s plenty going on in the glass. While I’m not an enormous fan of honeyed flavours, it is hard not to give this beer the mark it deserves.”
