I sampled this on tap at Culture Bière, Champs Elisées, Paris. Pelforth Ambrée is a drinkable Amber Ale. While the color is a nice deep amber, there is a quickly disappearing head. The aroma is a bit hoppy and the flavor is malty with less complexity than desired.

Dark golden with a nice head. The aroma has notes of flower and caramel. The flavour is sweetish with notes of caramel and fruit. The finish is dry and hoppy. Charming, but not outstanding.

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2007
Bottled, 330ml, Pasteurised. Amber with white head, carbonised. Quite a dryish beer for Pelforth with a grainy malt body, some husky nut notes and even a touch of hops on the finish. Reasonable without being in any shape or form a classic.

I thought this was the best beer made in France while I was in France in the year 2000. It was fun drinking these while playing my wife ping pong in the outdoor garden in Ambrose, France at the bed and breakfast we were staying at. Nutty malty with a little bitterness. Page 358 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 295 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 650ml fliptop. Deep bronze pour with a generous white head. Candyish, slightly honeyish nose. Caramel, candy sugar and honey sweetness. Some of the creamy, slightly roasted maltiness of the Brune with a more assertively bitter and faintly metallic finish. Uncomplicated, but pleasant enough.
