A slightly roasted malt gives it a light amber color. The rich flavor dominates the malt/hops balance and is very popular among most beer drinkers.

thick head, good lace, but not much character, honestly I found it a little gross, didn’t taste like an ale, more like a weak lager and in aroma as well, not much ’beer flavor’ kind of watery with alcohol standing out more than real flavor. Avoid this beer, overpriced and not good, you can do better.

Drunk a 1/3 of this bottle, then threw the bottle out the window.

Very thin and weak tasting. Doesn’t have much malt or hops. Don’t let the fancy bottle fool you, but do pass on the bottle to a homebrewer.

Decent for a light amber beer. Trailing tart aftertaste, light butter/caramel. The yeast reminded me of Grolsch Amber or Heinies. Not very hoppy, and leaning on the sweet side. Bottle and packaging are novel, but I didn’t care for the feel of the concave sides of the bottle. Not bad for $7.49 US/6.

Appearance is a little pale. And the beer was a little watery after pouring. But overall it wasn’t too bad.. just not up there with the more flavorful amber ales that i’ve had

Well, upon prying off the ’cork’ it sounded like a champagne bottle going off (a little too carbonated, perhaps?) but the beer didn’t really live up to the ’opening.’ Perhaps this was a bad bottle, as it smelled and tasted a bit skunky. A strong alcohol smell was present, but little of the advertised malt or hops. So, this review will probably be revisited in the near future to find out whether it was just a bad bottle. But for now, it’s a stinker.

I like that style of bottle cap, I love popping those things. Very weird aftertaste indeed, but by the end of the beer, it is good. Very good for a French beer.

A friend, my dad and I all enjoyed this beer. We bought about 35 beers one night and had a taste test and rated each beer. This was in the top 10 for sure. Great flavor. Will drink it again for sure.

smooth flavor with strange after-taste, will pay the high price for the bottle
