COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2006 Perhaps I got ahold of an older bottle than before, as this beer was very sour, even for a french ale (but not spoiled). After the initial acidic jolt, the darker malts created an almost chocolate/raspberry experience.

Stank Like a fresh loaf of Schwebels (bread to the out of towner) Deep Amber Hue with Strong Foamy Head and Decent Carbonation. Jason and Jim did alright on this one. Not too many beers of this style I could say i enjoy, But this was quite savory. Malty and Yeasty and just enought hops to keep it exciting.

Flavor is fruity sweet, somewhat Champagne like but in a rather weak way. I guess this could be a decent session ale but the style just didn’t appeal to me.

I have to say that despite the long-winded name this is one of he best beers I’ve had in a long time. Smooth, not too strong, not too weak. What an excellent session beer! I wish I could describe it more clearly. "Drinkable" is the word that comes to mind most often.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2008 This beer is a dark amber color with a medium light brown head. The aroma is lightly toasted malt and caramel. Light to medium bodied. The flavor is a little tart but overall a mild blend of malt, fruit, hops and caramel. The finish is a bit uneven, not my favorite beer by a longshot.

Pours with little head to a burnt-orange color. The smell was malty and pleasent. The palate is slightly creamy with a slight hop flavor. Clean finish. Pretty good, but not too increadible.

This beer is a dark brownish-amber color with a medium cream-colored head. Decent lacing. The aroma is mildly toasted malt and caramel. Light-bodied and smooth with a kind of low amount of carbonation. The flavor is a little tart but overall a mild blend of malt, bread, hops and caramel. The finish is very smooth, making for a fairly good session beer overall. I would get this again but it’s a little simple in places.

aracauna (3053) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2004
The body is a deep red amber. This is a gorgeous hue. The head is a weak white. The aroma is candied yams with the caramel malt and yeast fruitiness playing tricks. The flavor suggests sweetness but there isn’t much. Interesting little beer.
