A true amber beer from Nord. It also respects the conditions of Saveurs en or. Its slightly roasty taste is obtained using torrefied malts.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear amber. The nose holds grass and hay, thank comes butter, glue and apples. Medium bodied wuth rounded mouthfeel. The finer details gets lost in the glue.

Amber. Lacks a proper head. Smells very fruity and has hints of yeast. Flavor has fruit and malt in abundance. Soft finish... Nothing special but nothing wrong either.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2007
Bottled. Amber colour with no head. Aroma is applejuice, some slight spicyness along with malts. Flavour is spiced and shows signs of alcohol. OK brew, but nothing really special. Low to non-existing carbonation.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2007
0.75 l bottle. Amber color with no head. Sweet aroma with apple, pepper, clove and malty-toasty background. Heavy clove-pepper flavor with some sharp alcohols, mellow maltiness and distant herbal hops. Bittersweet finish. Very low real ale like carbonation.

TBone (12988) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2007
Bottled 0.75 ltr (BB 12/2008)
Dark clear amber color, pratically no head. Apple juice and light toffee in the nose. Harsh bitterish beer with salted flavors, apples, grapes and woody hops. Flat mouthfeel. Aftertaste is harsh, alcoholic and hoppy with toffeish notes. Weird but same time has some typical elements of biere de garde style. Not so enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 (Bottled, 0.75l) Clear amber with with a small head and some lace. Lightly roasty, grainy-toffee-malty, a bit alcoholic aroma with some dried fruit, yeast and strawberries. Sweet-sourish, a bit vegetably, grainy-malty flavor with hints of licorice roastiness in the finish. Light to medium-bodied with low carbonation. Toffeeish and fruity, but quite thin and dull beer. Now it does form a head, but is still pretty low-carbonated, and could use some more. I find the Blonde much better - especially now that it has some CO2.

RichardGretton (4290) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle. Light brown beer with a strong active head. The aroma is fairly cloudy and alcohol based, and the flavour is relatively dull, vinous, slighlty fruity and dry. Overall OK but nothing special.

Bottle at the Nov 05 London gathering. Although some were not too complimentary about this beer, I can’t say I had any quarrels with it. Toffee and yeast in a Belgian style. With a little cheesy sharpness from the French farmhouse school. Plus nutty goings on and maybe a bit too much residual sweetness. Quite endearing.
