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!

Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton. Nice pour into a snifter. Reddish amber in color, the beer had a solid head and lacing. The aroma was mostly malt, caramel and light fruits. Not a very strong overall aroma though. The taste was actually more defined with a malty, almost sweet presence. You get a little of the fruit (either peaches, cantelope, etc,) Mildly hopped but well balanced. Medium light body, medium carbonation. Crisp finish. Not bad for the style.

Bottle thanks to Matt! Color is a clear copper no head. Aroma is weak East and caramel malt. Flavor is the same with entirely too much caramel and almost no yeast. Thin body and almost watery texture. Pretty weak showing overall, mostly just caramel.

ffbot (261) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Smell is caramel, grass, citrus, yeast and malt. Look is a dark murky brown with gold accents and tiny foam head. Taste is huge in the nutty domain, toast, bread, bananas, and yeast. Very interesting. I liked it

Pours cloudy coppery dark amber with a thin off-white head. mild carbonation, bit of an alcohol aftertaste but very pleasant aroma. Grassy caramel mild hops. Not bad but a bit bland for my tastes.

This is one of the most underrated beers on this site. It’s sweet, with a complex, caramel malt flavor balanced on the back end by mild hops.

12 oz bottle. 12/8/15 code date. Appearance: Amber/brown with a touch of orange. Clear with a moderate off white foam head. Aroma: Bready, toasty, caramel malt with a light fruity yeast character. Taste: Rich malt sweetness with toasted bread and caramel dominant. Bitterness is low to moderate. Definitely malt forward. Mouthfeel: Medium body with light carbonation. Finish: Toasted malt and herbal hop flavors linger after the swallow. Overall: Fairly straightforward ale with Vienna/Marzen malt character. Ale yeast adds only a touch of fruitiness. Very malt forward, almost cloyingly sweet

Bottle. Copper-red pour with a thin, quickly-gone head. Mild aroma of malt and rice wine. Similarly mild flavor - toasted grain, malt, caramel. Very slightly bitter finish cuts the sweetness a bit. Comes across more like a lager than anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
