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.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - 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.

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

jercraigs (8106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
Pours a hazy dark amber. Aroma is yeasty with citrusy notes. A dry finish after sweet malt and yeast in the flavour.

DuffMan (7147) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2007
Pours an opaque cloudy golden amber with a rather short lived head. Aroma reminds me of baked apples, including the expected spiciness such a description implies. Lively palate with fine carbonation, fruity yeast and spices, wheaty esters (I know the label says barley malt). Quick finish, zesty. An unusual take on an amber ale, but a welcome one that I enjoyed.

Radek Kliber (6544) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 21, 2006
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.

blankboy (6320) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of me. Pours a cloudy dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing white head. Nice enough aroma of malt, yeast, citrus and spices. Flavour is quite yeasty with some spices and malt. Kind of Saison-ish. Dry finish. It’s not great but it goes down easy and is fairly refreshing and that’s O.K..

Rastacouere (6142) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
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.
