COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Choulette Ambrée is the classic amber version of a French bières de gardes. It has a wonderfully spicy aroma and is fullflavored, but effervescent and refreshing.

Dedollewaitor (14040) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours dark amber/brown with a creamy head & lacings. Aroma is pleasant, dakr fruits & caramel. Medium & smooth palate. Tiny bready & metallic note. Other than that quite good. Vinous & round. The best in the La Choulette series!

harrisoni (13856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Bottle from Carrefour, Calais Won the Medaille d’Or Paris 2004 according to the sticker label on the bottle. Reddish amber colour with a caramel/white head. Lots of malt on the nose and some kind or freshly washed green vegetable? Lots of caramel malt in the flavour and the sweetness is balanced by the relatively astringent hop finish. Excellent balance, will buy again when I go to France next week.

MiP (13664) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
Bottle, 8%. Weak phenolic aroma, band aid. Nice clear dark chestnut colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour is also phenolic, and worse than the aroma. Band aid, chemical, strange liquorice. Genuine Choulette quality :/

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2001
Firm, malty, with a touch of vanilla and a good, understated yeasty note. Well-crafted. Damn this brewery kicks ass.

Travlr (12314) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Deep, dark, murky chestnut color, large thick, fluffy beige head, solid lacing. Aroma is very earthy and lightly spiced pumpernickel bread and drief fruits. Taste is winter fruits and roots, with rich caramel and Soda bread. Classic example of the style.

bu11zeye (11972) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours a reddish brown body with an average-sized off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of toffee, prunes, and dates. Compatible flavor of malt, dark fruits (prunes, dates, raisins), spicy yeast, and earthiness.

Rasmus40 (11345) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011

bhensonb (11257) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
750 ml bottle (Dec 07) from Monument in Concord, CA. Spicey, roasted caramel aroma. Dark amber color that didn’t last long, and neither did the white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, almost hinting of cola. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Rather mild, but there is enough bitter to balance the malt. A very calm and relaxing experience. Good stuff.
