Bottle, 500mL. @Camping Courte Vallée, Airvault, France. A clear amber beer with a medium off-white head. Medium persistence. Aroma of caramel, roasty, spicy, herbs. Medium refreshing bitter, light sweet. Pleasant, but "unidimensional". Medium body and texture. A bit fizzy. Light bitter finish with a toffee note. Overall, a good herbal, bitter beer. Refreshing.

Dark amber, auburn, clear. Has fruity, hoppy aroma, much better than typical real ale. It still has quite sweet malty aroma. I hoped it’ll be more bitter and deep. Body is light to medium. Carbonation is rather soft, but gives really pleasure sensation.

Beautiful amber colored, sparkling beer with a hoppy and bubblegum aroma aroma. Slightly bitter taste with a long, hoppy aftertaste. Too watery for me.

Bottle. Dark amber colour, small head with poor lacing. Aroma is not very intensive, mostly of caramel, with spicy finish . Light but pleasant bitterness. Average carbonation, oily texture. It’s quite easy to drink, tastes good, but could offer something more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Miedziana barwa, piana jasno kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, bardzo obfita, zostawia charakterystyczne krążki na szkle. W aromacie mocno wyczuwalny chmiel i lekka nuta cytrusowa. W smaku mocno goryczkowe później wyczuwalne smaki słodowe i lekka nuta orzechowa i karmelowa w tle. Średnio mocne wysycenie i mocna goryczka która chwile zostaje w ustach. Dodatkowy plus za etykietę kształt butelki. Kapsel jest prosty, ale po prostu piękny :)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml clear bottle bought at Market Place by Jasons in Mei Foo.
Clear amber colour; Two and a half finger head and crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Aroma of rich ale malt, with initial skunk (lasted for 2 minutes), strong caramel, burnt toffee, light chocolate, light molasses, thick bread, yeast and smelly grass; Light sweet taste of ale malt, with metallic, strong caramel, toast, burnt toffee, molasses notes, bread, tea biscuits, light yeast, lime, bitter hops and grass; Close to light body, quite slick palate; Mouth feel is fairly dynamic and malty Bitter. Taste is watery at fist but fairly slick and wholesome throughout. Very strong toast and burnt toffee in caramel background. Very low sweetness. Straight forward, like afternoon tea biscuits. Alright!... Hoppiness, minus the initial skunk, is light grass nose, lemon and light grass in taste. Bitterness is moderate and smart for a malty-astringent finish; Quite dry after taste. Easy and fairly bitter to mouth.
Comments: A very solid Bitter, with fair body, good looks, wholesome malts, toasy burnt toffee taste, and smart hoppiness. Quite elegant yet straight forward, like enjoying a liquid tea biscuit. Nice one!
