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.

Bottle (Volo) Fine haze, amber light brown. Good solid fine tanned top, nice lacing. Pleasant nose, malty, gentle aromatic hops with hints of spice and yeast. Slightly earthy, woody in character with semi-sweet malt touch. Smooth and very easy to drink. Be aware this one is 8 %. Classic.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2010
Bottle at Hall’s Beerr Tavern, Paris. Gentle carboanation in a hazy amber beer. Very fruity, plums, peqaches, sour cherries. Feel srelated to an Altbier. Well balanced, quite complex. A little hint of barnyard, a small edge of vinegar.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml) - tulip glass. Poured cloudy orange with a big creamy/rocky slightly off-white head, intricate thin lacing left behind. Aroma redolent of sour corn mash, hops, a bit of coriander, alcohol and sweet malt - a little earthy yeastiness in the back. Flat, greasy mouthfeel, tastes of corn starch, white wine, orange peels - some subtle hops and a sour, wheaty note overall. A little flatter than ideal, but well blended and balanced with enough going on to keep me searching for "what’s that taste???!"

jonas (6300) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 22, 2003
Strong honey aroma dark amber, low creamy head. Woody and sweet honeyish tastenotes. medium bodied but with a heavy attitude. Sugary sweet, almost vineous aftertaste. Seems to be a bit out off balance to me.
