3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown almost clean body and small head. Soft carbonation, simple appeal. Brown sugar, cheap malts, only light bitter in the end. Yeasty is mostly the reason this doesn’t feel to interesting. Warming annoying alcohol. Poor, misses richness, uniqueness and or character. (75cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

750ml. I love the aroma its dirty and unrefined ,,like a classic French cheese or woman. A decent brown colour and nice beige head; Good palate -peppery . dry , with these spicy textures and some sweet fruit like orange ; notes of caramel covered in cobwebs . I almost always like this kinda rural beer ..
A great biere de garde ...

750ml shared with Jeevan, from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Sweet sugar honey aromas, hint of cinnamon, taste is the same, but a bit bland. Not bad, but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Corked 750ml bottle at The New Penguin. Excitable, streaming bronze with a loose white foam. Aroma of wholemeal, honey-drizzled brass, slight dung, hazelnut, possibly cinnamon, extruded rabbit food. Sweet and dull with all of the above, plus a soupcon of redeeming sesame and toasted bread in the finish. OK but overly sweet and lacking in character at the ABV. Not feeling the love for the beers of France tonight.

750 ml bottle. L16. BB O/16. From saveur-biere.com.
Clear amber colour with a small white head.
Sweet malt, dryness and sugar in the aroma.
The flavour is dry hops, mild bitterness, sweet malt and some sugar. Not bad but boring.

Taste is moderately sweet, a vague mixture of fruity, spicy, and minimally dry herbal notes, a touch of cinnamon; clearer structured and more integrated not until the finish, leaving caramel malt, orange and cinnamon on tongue. Relatively light body.
