Stefano (1850) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2008
Amber gold, moderate white head and low condition. Mild malty and grassy aroma. Flavour is caramel and with some dried fruit, apricot. OK bitter aftertaste.

Finally filling out my Pelforth trilogy, at least for the ones commonly found around Paris, there’s Pelforth Ambrée. Can’t say I’ve been a huge fan of the other two, but they did the trick when necessary. This one is more of a dirty blonde than an amber, dark gold, okay head, nothing special. Aroma is a murky malty affair of barley and caramel, some nuts, a bit of swampwater. Taste is a chocolate-coffee mash in water, slightly woody, some cooked barley, but very soft. Doesn’t even seem like an amber at all, and not what I was expecting. The worst of the three, actually.

Like the brune I was impressed with this. A good hit of caramel and malt with a nice balance. Once again great value by the 6-pack everywhere that ber can be acquired.

ElDesmadre (1361) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. Amber colour but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malty, caramel, spicy fruitiness (resembling coriander), tea. Very nice, taste is slightly worse. Heavy, sweet maltiness, citrusy-spicy, tea, some mandarine and faint banana. Light, slightly astringent bitterness at the back that is a minor flaw. Best one out of the Pelforth bunch.

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

bergstaden (1007) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2009
Dark golden with a white head - malty taste with some bitterness - nice and drinkable beer

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2008
Rusty copper hue with a decent off white creamy head. Light caramel and malty nose. Caramel flavours and malt, spice and a subtle hoppy finish.

psilosophy (472) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - FEB 22, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur ambrée claire, mousse moyenne qui s’estompe assez vite. Aromatiquement, ce n’est pas trop mal, plutôt caramélisée et florale, par contre... Elle pique! Ce n’est pas l’alcool mais quelque chose la rend piquante presque instantanément en bouche et ça lui est très préjudiciable. En plus de çà, je pensais avoir à faire à la pelforth printemps car le packaging était trompeur, grrr! Trouvée à Cora - Courrière.

I drank this beer a while ago. I’ll update this ratin if I have the chance to drink it again.
