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.

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.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, 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.

Bottle, DBF 2004. Amber gold, moderate white head and low condition. Low malt and gentle hop in the nose. Sweet malt and some hop in the mouth and a lingering hop resin finish.

Papsoe (25085) - 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

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
Brought from France by my colleague Peter. Amber with an off-white head. Sweet, honeyed, malty aroma. The taste is light, gentle, sweet, Seville orange withy malt and a pleasant, dryish close. Very easy to drink and enjoy.

ElDesmadre (1553) - 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.

Bottled 250ml. -from Geant Albertville. Dark golden/pale amber coloured, small off-white head, mild malty spicy nose. Sweet malty, caramel and spices with hoppy notes in the finish. Bitter finish. Not bad at all.
