When a beer says "biere d’abbay" but states on the back that it is brewed "under license of an abbey", states no name of a brewery and the customer service directs towards a large supermarket chain, it is time to be suspicious. This brew however is actually quite nice. I drank it straight from the can, but noticed the delicate aroma of candy sugar with some licorice and a hint of roasted malts and caramel. The color seems to be coppery to golden and the flavor is sweet and slightly sour. Somewhat reminding me of some amber colored biere de gardes I’ve had here in France. It’s nothing special, but a lot better than the can made me presume.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained normale carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear amber color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is light hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch. This beer smells roasted malty.

It’s warm golden with notes of malt, caramel and citrus. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, candy-sugar, light citrus and the finish is slightly dry and citrussy.

oh6gdx (21546) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2010
Bottled. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is sweet fruits, malts and some mild herbal notes. Flavour is fruits, bread, some sweet malts as well. Leffe blond clone or something that way. In a bad way.

MiP (13990) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle, 6.2%. Weak caramel aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is caramelly with some rough bitterness. Rough, but OK.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - APR 18, 2010
Bottled 25cl. Courtesy of Bov. I really didn’t enjoy this beer at all. Sweet, sticky, buttery metallic with a strong reminiscence of boiled vegetables and rusty nails. Awful. Still, thanks Bov for a new beer!

DeanF (1746) - Nunavut, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Pours syrupy-gold with a nice reliable head, but just not quite solid enough. Very little on the nose - perhaps some cardboard, vaguely. Taste is a coffee-like bitterness, some nut and wood notes, not as heavy on the malts and syrup as I anticipated. Semi-dry finish.

yespr (33597) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is dry cornish and mild grassy. Bitter, malty, overripe fruity and cornish sweet. Sweet to dry finish, slight phenolic.
