JaKeAFC (638) - - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle, about 1.50€, 6%.
Aspect: Amber, clear, with a nice fine offwhite head reducing to small lace.
Nose: quiet, nothing on spot.
Aroma: unclear malts, really bland dusty chestnuts, minerals, an iron note.
Taste: flat, no particular sweet\bitter combination.
Palate: watery, light bodied, soft carbonation, dusty finish.
Strange, unclean, somewhat muddy. Not nice but not terrible.

Bičre légčre avec un goűt peu prononcé. L’arričre goűt est un peu amčre. Bičre rafraichissante

No aroma. Not much to say except that it’s got a sticky bitter finish with a strong iron feel.

koshack (344) - Gdańsk, POLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Piana drobna, biała. Ładnie ozdabia szkło. Trwała. Kolor bursztynowy, lekko zamglone. W aromacie słodowe, w drugiej nucie lekki chmiel. Nic szczególnego. W smaku goryczka, średnia, nawet zaskakująca. Poza tym nuty słodowe. Lekki nuty przypominające Bičre de Gardez Pinty być może to mączka kasztanowa. Też nic ciekawego.

Hoppy_Luke (430) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Francuski amber lager. Piwo z serii: da się wypić. Pomarańczowe, z wąskim, białym pierścieniem piany. W aromacie nieco słodu, poza tym niewiele... W smaku wodniste, bardzo nieznacznie słodowe, lekko metaliczne. Chmielu nie wyczułem. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku wysokiego. Nic specjalnego.

Unpleasant aroma. Clear golden, head vanishes instantly. Nothing special about the taste, there’s some specific tinge maybe it’s due to that chestnut, that’s probably the only interesting thing. High carbonation. Wouldn’t recommend it to my friends.

adasko (620) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Słodki karmelowo słodowy cukierkowy aromat. Piwo niemal klarowne, barwa ciemno złota. Piana mało obfita, dość ładnie okleja szkło. Piwo puste, praktycznie bez smaku. Dopiero na sam koniec pojawia się nieco słodyczy. Brak jakiejkolwiek goryczki. Piwo wysoko nasycone, początkowo wodniste, później słodycz daje nieco ciała. Ogólnie dość kiepskie, ale ma specyficzny posmak, przez który warto go spróbować.

341ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Clear golden-copper in colour with a long lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is very grainy, lots of cereal, creamed corn, toasty. Flavour is grainy, wheaty, cereal, bitter, toasty, some corn, metal. Metallic sweet mouthfeel, light body, high carbonation. Finishes watery, bitter, corny and very sweet.

Bottle. Solid caramelly malty base with nutty notes and some floral-honeyish elements. Might have been a bit oxidised but that rendered it the more pleasant.

Cimbasso (320) - - NOV 20, 2014
Purchased in a 50cl can from a supermarket in Nice. Light copper colour with a whitish head. Taste of sweetish malts with plenty of caramel flavours. Almost a milky taste. Although it is made withusing chestnut flour, there are only small hints of nut flavours Toffee flavours predominate. Some very slight bitterness. Not as bad as some of the French product, but lacks real character. Has some drinkability, but not great.
