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.

Sample from 500 ml bottle at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Dirty amber in color with little head or lacing....solidly juicy, hoppy aroma, mostly dry woody Englishy-cidery sorts of scents but there’s a bit of west coast citrus, too....thin and watery alas on the tongue, though there’s some reasonable bitterness, a bit of caramel and dry wood....dull, lightly salty, syrupy finish...another ho-hum effort from another ho-hum QC micro.

Bouteille. De couleur ambrée rouge et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, pommes rouges, petites notes de pêche) et épicées (coriandre, léger de clou de girofle, notes de poivre et traces de cannelle), malté de caramel doux (notes de sucre bonbon) et léger de houblon floral. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen mais croustillant ainsi qu’une texture très légèrement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes – lime, pommes, faibles notes de poires) avec un moyen goût épicé (coriandre, léger clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel doux et des notes de pain puis une finale moyen-léger amère de houblon herbeux et de levures épicées (légèrement poivrées). Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux, léger de levures et fruité (zest d’agrumes, léger de pelures de pommes).

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2007
Drank in a tulip glass. Dark caramel amber poor with a nice sticky off white head. Very malty aromas, spicy, apples, caramel and slightly alcohol... Full bodied, thick and frothy mouthfeel. Very malty taste again with a spicy peppery twist to it. Nicely carbonated not to many flavors, perfect balance of bitterness and mouthfeel. Very basic yet complicated amber ale.

Bottle. Milky cloddy amber, medium size dense head. Strong fresh citric, spicy yeasty aroma. Clean body with good bitter frontal. Orange peel and hops. Very refreshing ale. Pleasant surprise.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange body with a small white frothy head. The aroma has dusty apples and spice. Flavour is quite yeasty and sharply bitter with plenty of fruity pear and oranges. Refreshing. Thanks for the bottle. Doug.

Slightly hazy amber. Dominantly malty but balanced by a decent hops presence. Ok, but nothing special.

Hazy amber hue, with a tan head, but falls quickly, with a yeasty, bready nose, with some spicy notes of coriander, nutmeg, touch of brown sugar, caramelized malt, and a fruit accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp caramelized malt character, a spicy coriander note, yeasty accent, roasted malt and also a delicate flowery hint and a fruity flavor, leading towards a nice citrus floral hoppy finish.
