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.

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.

250 ml bottle, poured into leffe chalice. Half a finger head, clear, ruby brown colour. Perfume dominates the aroma, there are some hops there. Tastes of sweet perfumed hops, some malt there. The abv is well hidden. Very smooth mouthfull. A pleasant beer, goes down ok.

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.

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.

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.
