Moderately strong beer, amber, marked in the malt and assertive bitterness. Fruity aroma, smooth and full bodied in the race. This beer style is a recreation of the craft produced only in French cereal areas, near the Belgian border.

jamaty (1915) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 13, 2016
Ambar, nebulosa. Espuma poco duradera. Aroma acaramelado de final avinagrado poco agradable. Mejora en boca, desapareciendo la acidez. Sabor de predominio dulce. Notas especiadas. Algo cansina. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DraftDodger (1120) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2016
Olhão 11/7 2016. 33 cl bottle on Restaurant Pescataria. Stylish bottle with print directly on the bottle. The ABV seems to be 6% (and not 5,6% as notes on RateBeer). Pours hazy orangeish amber with white head Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is lightly fruity with a little peach and pear. Malty caramel. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is medium sweet but followed by more pronounced bitterness. Fine Portugese craft beer with a bitter footprint. Nice to see that Portugese beer is more than Sagres and Super Bock.
