is an independent informal site for beer enthusiasts, providing information on specific beer brands tested by guitarist Archaon of the Norwegian black metal band 1349.


The beers reviewed are rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 6 based on the following parameters:

  • Color
  • Consistency/texture
  • Fragrance
  • Elements of taste and aftertaste
  1. Disgusting (rather drink water)
  2. Poor/boring (somewhat drinkable, but nothing more than that)
  3. Ok (meets expectations)
  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)
  5. Splendid (top notch; a joy to consume every drop)
  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

imageA local Zürich-based ale, quite light golden in terms of colour. Produces a nice head when poured. Aroma is kind of an Old English ale, which also is reflected in the taste. At first, a nice touch of distinct bitterness, with a underlying veil from when the malts comes into play. Definitively pilsenermalts used in this one, that emerges properly towards the end.
