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.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Copper robe, malt and caramel bouquet. It's dry and short in mouth. Without being agressive, the roasted flavor from that beer is not appealing.

Mild and brown in color. I thought this was more of a brown ale due to its lack of bitterness. Not even enough hops to be an English-style brown ale, IMHO. Nice chocolate malt flavor pervades throughout!

(Bottle) Pours a thin, almond head and a beautiful cloudy copper body. Nose of citrus and malt. Flavours of caramel, malt, citrus and yeast. Finishes bitter and dry. Very good amber ale.

Light hay in colour. Aroma is citrusy, yeasty. Flavour is yeasty, citrusy, a little nutty. Finishes slighty hoppy, bitter then dry.

Hazy dark orange color, spots of yeast. Nose is citrusy and orangey with hints of yeast and an unpleasant ketchup likeness. Body is yeasty and wheaty, although it doesn't contain wheat. Lightly bitter, the flavors blend nicely.

Not too impressed by this one. I found the aroma to be off-putting and almost sour, and the flavour starts off nicely, but quickly turns to a numbing bitterness as it hits the back of the tongue. This bitter edge got worse as the beer warmed up. Didn’t get any of the spicy crispness promised by the label, either. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood to appreciate the dryness. At least it has a nice copper colour.

I liked this one. Still has the cheval blanc yeast that i can’t apreciate, however it has enough malty complexity and spices to overcome the yeast flavor.

Brown sugar and yeast…Some caramel malt and cereal…Somewhat of a void…
