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.

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.

Can 50 cl. Courtesy of jaghana. pours amber with a sligh haze and an off-white head. Very sweet caramellish nose. Solid body, heavy malt base, some caramel and fruit with a boozy finish. Some late hops too. Not the worst way to get loaded. 311011

harrisoni (15068) - 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.
