Bière ambrée, arôme caramel et pain d’épice, assez malté en bouche. Palais agréable, bière typique nord de la france avec un goût de céréale assez prononcé.

Deu (898) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
bottle, cloudy orange, small white head. mild aroma, notes of flowers, malts, and hops. flavor is malty, and quite boozy, but also quite dry, making it drinkable.

Renobob (1180) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2014
Bue à la pression. Bière trop sucrée, peu de CO2, pas de mousse. Mal équilibrée, on ne sent que le malt. Pas géniale.

freretoc (1129) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2014
Bue à la pression au Kilarney (Besançon) en 25cl, couleur blonde, mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence, une bière assez amère en début de bouche, maltée et sucrée juste sympa.

Has a red amber color. The aroma and flavour are strong with syrupy red fruit. Considering it’s sweetness it is quite smooth and easy to drink.

Quack-Duck (8568) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2014
bottle from saveur-biere. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized head. Sticky-sweet malty taste with an alcoholic touch, almost no hops, with a spicy touch.

Horrible. For once I forgot to read the sticker. "sirop de glucose". I hate things that have nothing to do in a beer. Too much sugar. Only the appearance is well. Run to the hills if you see it somewhere. And take for example a not expansive little good one like floreffe

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Clear amber lasting white head. It’s pretty good. Drinkable 8% beer, bit of mustiness bit of oxidisation. Otherwise it’s fine. I’d have gone with strong French biere de garde, but didn’t know it was a lager. And wouldn’t taste it. might be an older bottle hence the oxidisation. Fine, it’s ok.
