COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 100% barley malt beer is blended with roasted malts and hops to five it a spicy, crisp taste. Bottle refermentation imparts a yeast enriched flavour. Not to be confused with the different Ambree served at the Cheval Blanc brewpub.

Formerly known as Cheval Blanc Ambrée and then as Spéciale Ambrée. Recently changed to RJ No.926.

Bière sur lie couleur de miel, très trouble ne formant pas de col significatif. Des arômes à la "Unibroue" de fleurs, de pomme verte et de poussière. Un peu trop acide. Plutôt mince, très effervescente avec une longue fin surette. Semblable à la blonde de Chambly.

Foggy yellow with plenty of carbonation, small head on top. Fruity hops and grain aroma. Taste is grainy with a slightly plastic aftertaste. A bit too dry and it becomes cloying.

Hey was labeled No. 926 by RJ Brewers. So fuck ’em. I liked the beer. Aroma kind of grainy-lagery and yeasty, taste is sweet w a dry finish. Fruit - blueberry and sweet apple, wheat spice and vanilla... some citrus and bubblegum. Kinda nice and Quebecky.

SlovakSniper (4815) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Le liquide est blond doré et est embrouillé par la lie. Le col mousseux est mince et fuyant. Effluves de levure, quelques pointes d’épices, du biscuit et des fruits tropicaux. Le goût est celui d’un malt doux, collé aux caractéristiques des arômes. En bouche, la texture du liquide est douce et très faiblement portée par les bulles. Arrière-goût légèrement acidulé. Aucune amertume.

RJ. no. 926 in a pint. Thin, fizzy head. Musty, as well as other reviews noter nutmeg odour. Milky color. More carbonnated than I expected, but only subtly so. Nice clean finish on the tongue, yet full enough flavour. Nice lacing. Recommend.

No. 926. Pours deep gold into a shaker. Bright white micro head with excellent retention leaves sheet lacing. Coriander and clove aromas. Smooth and peppery with a slightly sweet yeast finish.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle RJ. no. 926. Aroma is sweet malt, some spices, fruits and yeast. Hazy amber with a thin foamy head. Average retention and lacing. Flavor is sweet malt, apples, citrus and yeast. Medium body.

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Golden beer, no head. The aroma is nicely spicy. A bit of apricot and some light spiciness. There is a touch of clove and fruit. Light body, low bitterness. A pretty balanced brew.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2009
Pours a cloudy orange with no head and a faintly sweet aroma with a touch of sweaty funk. Tastes like orange Cream Soda, some coriander, fairly typical wit on the sweet side. Not terrible. Body is thin, good carb, no creaminess. Lingering orange sweetness. Drinkable, but no head and thin body really detract. Thanks to Robin for the trade!

robinvboyer (3995) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2009
bottled at No.926. A hazy unfiltered amber ale. Slight hops, a touch of grainy malt and some odd citrus notes. Like orange juice that has been left out. Flavor is much of the same, dull hops, and dull malt with that stale orange juice finish. Drinkable, but not memorable.
