2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slight malty aroma with some chemical bitter hops. Medium-dark amber clear with off-white frothy lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with light-medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet, with malt, syrup, bit of vapor, and a salty bitterness - like softened water. Finish is sweet with some chemical bitterness, and after is light nutty sweet.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 25cl @Auchan. A clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is caramel like. Aroma is malty, on caramel, alcohol is quite present, very bitter and peppery. Less interesting than than the sping amber beer. Bit disapointed.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Den typischen Ambrée Geschmack kann man herausschmecken und es schmeckt mir wirklich nicht schlecht, wegen der milde bleibt es aber dennoch unter meinen Erwartungen.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light brown body, fairly nice except that the tan head collapses quickly. Caramel, biscuits, even oatmeal (but only is maltyness, not character). No hops here. Sweet taste of simple malts and some brown sugar, yet too thin to provide a good mouth feel. Big bubbles don’t help either. It has a nicer drinkability than most French blond’s but is too sweet to be called sessionable. The brewer took some short-cuts here, I think. (25cl bottle from Auchan)

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 Pours a tall off-white head on a clear orange brown body. Mild malty and grassy aroma. Sweet malty flavor at first with some bitter hops in the end. Notes of flowers and grass. Refreshing and nice.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
250 ml bottle in Ziguinchor, Senegal. Pours a light amber color with an off-white head. Strong sweetish, fruity aroma, candy-like, but not in an artificial way. Flavor is equally sweetish cardboard and fruity, but it works a bit better in the aroma than in the flavor. Metallic notes in the palate. Pretty bland other than the chemicals in it.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It pours a beautiful auburn autumn-leaf colour. The head looks good on pouring but it disappears after a few minutes. The nose gives off initial notes of ripe apples and pears. The taste is soft and malty with stewed apples on the finish. Reasonable structure but the finish is a bit confusing - neither refreshing nor rich and long. My general impression is that the palate does not live up to the aroma.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
