jimhilt (2430) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Pours with a medium head, leaving some lace. Nice amber color. Malty, citrus orange nose. Starts sweet and fruity and finishes with some tartness and underlying hops. Medium bodied. Very different for a French beer. Served at Passports in Glouster, MA ($4.75).

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2003
(bottle) slightly hazy copper. Aroma fruity/yeasty, but no yeast in flavor, which is sweet, carmel, aromatic with noticable alcohol.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Nice nose, malty. Caramel, tea, fruity but not much hops. Beautiful dark amber clear with custard white pillowy lacing head. Medium watery body and medium soft carb. Taste is actually kind of weak. A little sweet malt, no hops. A distinct flavor is present in the finish (paper?) - may be the style. Alcohol. Almost no after.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2003
Red/Amber colour with a small head. Malt and a bit of fruit in the aroma. Taste of malt, spice and caramel. Nothing exceptional, but still a appreciable. In southern France, it is often the only decent beer available at the grocery.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2003
Bottle. Reddish colour, little head. Sweet fruit and spice in the aroma and in the flavour. Not overpowering. Thin but smooth body, not overly carbonated.

SBgoodDave (13) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2003
Tasty. A mellow ale like brew. Lovely mild flavour with depth of malt character. Smooth on the palate and little to no bitter aftertaste.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Pretty mellow beer overall and nothing too exciting. Toasted malts do offer some character, mildly nutty, mildly chocolaty, with a little sourness in the finish, but pretty straightforward. As Oakes says: "simplistic vienna malt character."

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
Sweet malty and fruity at first, then the hiops starts to come through. A very drinkable biere de garde. Allmost as good in can..

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Nice reddish color. Strong malt aroma and flavor. Strong body, a little sweet and syrupy, dark chocolate perhaps, a bit of alcohol.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
Dark gold-amber in colour. Very low carbonation, yielding little head. Light clean malty aroma, no esters diacetyl or phenolics. Big clean malt flavour. More like a light bock in flavour in that regards. The bitterness is a little high though balances out the high malty,sweet beer well. It has a definite, silky texture that is extremely pleasant.
