2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, 330ml, Pasteurised. Amber with white head, carbonised. Quite a dryish beer for Pelforth with a grainy malt body, some husky nut notes and even a touch of hops on the finish. Reasonable without being in any shape or form a classic.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
An amber beer with no head. Both the flavor and aroma is dry and hoppy, though the flavor also contains malty notes.

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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Sweet dried apple aroma. Amber color with small head. Sweet corn syrup and malt flavor. A bit too sweet for me.

Light amber color. Not bad, but absolutely nothing to say, just some caramel (of course…).

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 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.
