Bottle. Nice amber color, head quickly dissipates. Very light and fruity. Not much hop presence. Im drinking it in a Paris bar so it makes it that much better! Overall not bad.

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2005
65cl bottle from Auchan, Calais. Peppery, malty aroma which is excellent. Spicey cinnamon too. Soft in mouth. Then spicey/cinnamon finish with some candy sugar, and then hop too. Very good if uncomplicated

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 This Pelforth is, in my opinion, their best effort at a good brew. It pours a medium copper with a slightly offwhite head. The nose is floral and lightly fruity. The mouthfeel is lightly syrupy, but the carbonation clears this up a bit, and thus the beer avoids any medicinal aspects. The palate is fairly rich with fruits, light hints of alcohol, and some hops presence that all of the other beers in France seem to have forgotten about. This is, in some ways, something like a Sam Adams Boston lager - some hops, some caramel, and a nice balance. The flavor, however, seems to change with your mood, so when your feeling cheap, it feels the same.

Bottled. Clear amber coloured with a small off white head. Aroma of malts, orange peel and spices. Flavour of malts and fruits with notes of orange peel.

NosirIwont (1987) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light amber (surprise :-) ) colour with an off-white head. Strong sweetish, acidic, fruity aroma - almost candy-like, but not in a yucky artificial way. Flavour is equally sweetish and fruity, but it works a bit better in the aroma than in the flavour. Metallic notes in the finish.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty, clear amber colour with a fine, dense, creamy cappuchino-like head. Delicate, spicy and quite perfumy nose. Lightly sweet, caramel-like malt character. Very smooth with a short, dry lightly hoppy palate. 020705

DanielBrown (3891) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2005
On tap at L’Impro, Toulouse. This was labelled as Pelforth de Printemps, but I believe it’s the same beer. Rosy hued amber beer, with no head. Doesn’t look very fizzy. Rather like an English Golden beer, I thought. Bright, breezy, with a distinct orange and peach aspect. Smooth, pretty thin and rather short-lived, but refreshing enough and pleasant, though slight.

shrubber85 (7841) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Bottle. Sweet dried apple aroma. Amber color with small head. Sweet corn syrup and malt flavor. A bit too sweet for me.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - APR 17, 2005
Bottle. Amber with small head. Malt, caramel, prunes, hoppy edge , dry, pleasent enough.
