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!

Light amber color,small head that faded very fast.mild lacing left behind.Mild malt aroma with hints of caramel,fruit.The taste was much better then i expected malty with a fruity mild raisin tone,Mildly sweet caramel,slight taste of hops.The after taste is mildly bitter with a slight fruity side and mild hops,with a good,smooth feel to it.I'm not real familiar with this style but i do know what i like and this is a fine brew IMO.

Oregon Brewers Fest. Amber color and a malty nose. Smooth malty flavors that finishes with a hint of smokiness in the aftertaste.

Floral, slightly sour and sugary aroma. Amber color. Initial bitterness, followed by a round earthiness. Unique.

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2005 Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a note of lemon. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, heavily acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Another terrible Two Brothers brew, sadly. This is my second review, this time from bottle rather than draught, and it still rates below 3.0 for me. This is metallic, very sour (possibly infected), and kind of grainy. Even aside from all that, it’s only vaguely to style. Disappointing.

An amber color and an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some caramel and malts. The maltiness dominates with some hop that lingers just slightly. A touch astringent and refreshing.

Pretty dark red. Musky malt in the nose. Soft and round on the tongue. Slight roast to the malt. Nutty for sure. Still not what I would expect from the style.

Nice deep red/brown color with an interesting tannic, husky aftertaste, on top of balanced munich malt type flavor and noticeable bitterness. good stab at Biere De Garde.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 19, 2003
Surprisingly good product of Two Brothers. Clean with good depth, good malt and decent bitterness. Nicely balanced, good mouthfeel. Solid brew.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Pours a very cloudy copper/amber color, with a white head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is mostly sweet malts, with slight sour notes, and not much complexity. A very competent ale, though I've certainly had better.

Amber colored, with a sizeable tan head. Nutty smell, with a bit of caramel. Slightly bitter, it has a caramel dominated taste. Somewhat dry.
