33cl bottle, at "l’Auberge de jeunesse d’Annecy" in the French Haute-Savoie in 2012. A commericial French amber beer from Pietraserena, Corsica. It has chesnut flavours, according to the brewer’s website. Not that exciting though.

Nicolas_M (78) - BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2015
Amber beer without any real specificity. Not bad to quench the thirst, but the other one from the same company (Colomba) is a little more efficient on that point.

Arek (441) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Bursztynowe piwo o grubej, puszystej, kremowej, sztywnej i trwałej pianie oraz słodowym, lekko ziemistym aromacie. W smaku słodowe, trochę zbożowe z delikatną, chmielową, goryczka na finiszu.

Bière légère avec un goût peu prononcé. L’arrière goût est un peu amère. Bière rafraichissante

Ulysse (267) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2015
No aroma. Not much to say except that it’s got a sticky bitter finish with a strong iron feel.
