Aux allures cuivrées, la CH’TI Ambrée dégage des arômes de malts subtilement torréfiés. Ses qualités ont été récompensées par la médaille d’Or lors de la Sélection Mondiale de la bière en 2003 à Bruxelles et par la médaille d’argent lors du Concours Général Agricole de Paris en 2004.

Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 London Grand Tasting - Moncada Brewery. Pours amber-gold with a creamy topping. The nose is sweet, bready malts. Sweet caramel and bread in the flavor, light leaves. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet and simple with further bready malts, light toast, more caramel, very slight leafy bitterness. Well balanced. Classic biere de garde.

MarkoNm (1895) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a clear amber color, topped with hefty beige head, decent retention. Malty aroma, some alcohol and slight yeast. Bittery but not to much, slight caramel. Very filling. I guess it’s ok, although I’m not the biggest fan.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Classic bière de garde reminiscent of a spéciale belge, with yellowish beige, loose, equal head and pure, warm amber colour with copper glow and calm sparkling. Powerfully nutty aroma, grapefruit, tomato, nutmeg, gooseberry, sweet tobacco, lavender; taste a bit neutral at first with medium carbonation, orange peel, dry, smooth and relatively light palate, caramelly and nutty maltiness, finishing flowery hoppy. Taste a bit underachieving compared with the aroma.

GoufCustom (1214) - HONG KONG - JUN 30, 2014

330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Time Square, Causeway Bay.

Clear amber honey colour with no yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head and beige foam which fades in 40 seconds; Very good sticky lacing and active small carbonation; Slighty fragrant aroma of amber malt, with faint roastyness, caramel, molasses, sugar, very light alcohol and yeast; Mid to light sweet taste of amber malt, with caramel, fairly light roasty, light molasses, hint of red fruits, light bread, yeast, lemon, light bitter hops and thin grass; Mid to light body. Slick and slightly creamy palate; Mouth feel is slightly thickened and creamed Amber Ale: fair maltyness, light roasted. Caramel set the tone with only molasses, light bread, and hints of cherry-like red fruits. Nothing more. Clean and simple… Hoppiness is no aroma, lemon and thin grass taste. Bittereness is light but notable for a sharp astringent long finish; Fairly dry after taste. Fairly easy to mouth.

Comments: This one is even more simpler than Ch’Ti Blonde, basically just a Amber Ale got thicker and creamier, with simple caramel nose and taste, fair malts and low hops. Faultless and alright to taste, but quite pointless when decent Amber Ales like James Squire Nine Tales does the job just as good. Very average as BdG.
