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

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.

London Gathering Nov 05: Malty, grainy a little raw. Fizzy. Amber body with a tight white. Yeasty aftertaste, with a mildly fruity aroma.

RichardGretton (4237) - 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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2005
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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2005
Bottle. Deepish amber colour. Yeasty aroma. Mouthfeel is quite fizzy (bbut it does soften a touch as we let it settle). Brown sugar sweetness, yeasty, lemony, with hints of banana. Too much gass.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A fruity slightly vinuous aroma to this amber coloured beer. The taste is a little creamy. It is fruity, peppery and prickly in the mouth. A tasty beer which actually reminded me of Southampton Grand Cru??? Thanks to Ian for providing a new brewery.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
An odd cloudy looking beer in a sort of reddish colour. Sweet, malty & fruity with a touch of sourness, the flavours aren’t very cohesive, and the beer is all over the place. Not really unpleasant.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
75cl Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05, originally from Auchan, Calais. Browny russet colour with thick beige head. Slight haze. Toffee, candy sugar and green hop nose on the aroma with some yeast. OK in mouth with more toffee, yeast and hop on finish. Didn’t detect any rotting hedgehog, damp cardboard or maggots as Silk did

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05. Musty yeast and caramel with fruity background malts. Although this was OK it was a bit sweet and I wouldnt want much

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2011 Nov, 2005. Kilburn Palace Bottle Fest. Aroma of dead hedgehog in a rain soaked cardboard box. Flavour is toffee sweet with some spice and a lack of clarity. I don’t think the brewer intended the beer to taste like this. Default score. [2.7]
Aug, 2011. Troyes, France. Escape from the riots. Sweet, grainy and spicy. The usual. Very drinkable, but too much like corn syrup to be impressed. [2.9]
