Bouteille (Merci, Quack-Duck!): Deep golden to light amber coloured, stable and lacy beige head; caramalt, toasted malt and a tinge of hops in the nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, only light bodied, quite unusual for a beer of 6.0%; short malty and slightly hoppy finish. Drinkable.........

Koelschtrinker (17675) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Sanft herb-malziger Antrunk. Spritzig würzig werdend, durch die leicht getreidige Herbenote zusätzlich frisch wirkend. Die Malzigkeit dehnt sich etwas aus, wirkt aber auch wässrig und daher etwas flach. Zum Ende wieder würzig-herb und erneut leicht getreidig. Einfach zu trinkendes Ambree. Danke an quack-duck. Test vom 11.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,9,8,8,8 - 8,15

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

Bottle. Amber colour with a off-white head. Sweet malty, dry fruity aroma and a sweet caramel, dry fruity taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2007
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.

An amber beer with no head. Both the flavor and aroma is dry and hoppy, though the flavor also contains malty notes.

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.

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.

Bottle. Sweet dried apple aroma. Amber color with small head. Sweet corn syrup and malt flavor. A bit too sweet for me.

Bottled (backlog). Amber colour with a mediumsized creamy white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is strong bready malts along with with some biscuits and mild herbal and grassy notes as well. Flavour is rather similar, but also has some elements of wood and mild spiciness. Also a bit berryish notes as it warms up.
