dinkle50 (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Amber color with a slight head that faded really quickly. Aroma is slightly acrid. Machine like character with some iron notes. Slight caramel taste. Really not much flavor overall. Mouth is a little light with hints of carbonation. Not bad, but not overly interesting or very tasty.

Foffern (1826) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a small off-white head. Heavy carbonated though. Aroma of fudge, bread crust, grass, dried apricot and some lemon. The flavour is similar with more dried fruit and alcohol. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A balanced and decent ale.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Can with a best before of April 5th, 2018. Pours with an orange-y hue, surprisingly light for an "Ambree". Aromas are grainy, grassy, toasty, mildly hoppy, orange marmalade, a touch of sulfur. Flavors are malty, bitter and grassy. Very lightly estery. Hoppy, almost lightly metallic. Lightly floral. Toasted malt forward, but not sweet. Some alcohol/warming notes. Lively carbonation, medium bodied, pretty dry.

arsol (1125) - NORWAY - APR 21, 2017
Gyllen klar farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter av karamell, malt og noe krydder. Medium fylde og noe søtlig i smak. Mild bitter, fruktig og krydret avslutning.

Zilb (293) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 2, 2017
Bue 10 mois avant DLC. Ambrée, mousse moyenne bonne tenue. Carbo importante. Arôme malt toasté et caramel. Très bon équilibre. Bien maltée, peu d’amertume. Assez douce et riche malgré le faible taux d’alcool. J’aime cette bière qu’on trouve partout et pas chère pour la qualité.

Bottle 75cl. Big foamy head. Red clear amber color. Aroma is iron, meat, gasoline, newly cut lawn, hint of nail polish remover, apples. Taste is pretty sweet and powerful. And not too much in here.

Une ambrée classique, peu coûteuse mais appréciable, malgré des parfums qu’on aurait pou souhaiter plus profonds

Zarrach76 (238) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2017
Aujourd’hui, un petit classique de la bière Française et de la gastronomie du Nord !Rousse limite blond vénitienne avec une mousse épaisse à la versée qui disparait très rapidement. Au nez, du caramel, quelques arômes de pamplemousse, de citron vert et de coriandre. Comme beaucoup de rousse/ambrée, les arômes sont limités et recouverts par les malts caramel. En bouche, la carbonatation est moyenne, l’amertume au rendez-vous, la texture ronde et l’alcool assez présent. On retrouve principalement le malt caramel, une bonne dose de céréales, un peu de noisette, d’orange, quelques notes de beurre, de levure et c’est à peu près tout. Bon point, la longueur est intéressante avec une légère amertume persistante. Evidemment, ce n’est pas une bière de dégustation (ni une vraie bière de garde...), elle est faite pour satisfaire un maximum de palets et étancher toutes les soifs. "C’est très buvable !" comme dirait Zézette... C’est ni bon ni mauvais, sans faire bière trop industrielle... Bouteille 75cl, supermarché X. Pour l’occasion, 666ième revue de cette bière. Là j’en jette...

gripweed57 (2143) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2016
750 ml corked and cage fed bottle. Pours a hazy Amber color topped by a medium sized fluffy beige head. Faint fruity, yeast aroma. First sip is earthy, crusty bread with rotted citrus hint. Slightly medicinal with sweet tobacco notes. An obvious lack of farmhouse funk, though quite enjoyable nonetheless.
