Light brown body, fairly nice except that the tan head collapses quickly. Caramel, biscuits, even oatmeal (but only is maltyness, not character). No hops here. Sweet taste of simple malts and some brown sugar, yet too thin to provide a good mouth feel. Big bubbles don’t help either. It has a nicer drinkability than most French blond’s but is too sweet to be called sessionable. The brewer took some short-cuts here, I think.

Den typischen Ambrée Geschmack kann man herausschmecken und es schmeckt mir wirklich nicht schlecht, wegen der milde bleibt es aber dennoch unter meinen Erwartungen.

250 ml bottle in Ziguinchor, Senegal. Pours a light amber color with an off-white head. Strong sweetish, fruity aroma, candy-like, but not in an artificial way. Flavor is equally sweetish cardboard and fruity, but it works a bit better in the aroma than in the flavor. Metallic notes in the palate. Pretty bland other than the chemicals in it. deusax (459) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 12, 2012
I drank this beer a while ago. I’ll update this ratin if I have the chance to drink it again. Travlr (25767) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2011
OK, entering this beer is sure to touch off the discussion, seen in the forums many times, about whether to enter beers like this that are found in other countries, but brewed here inAfrica. I have no idea if the recipe is different. Label says "Brasserie et embouteillee sous licence intenationale par SOBOA Dakar Senegal." SOBOA is the French term for the society of brewers of west africa. So,you make the call. This one, courtesy of USAID, was a clear chestnut color, small beige head with poor retention. Aroma of caramel and light smoke. Taste had a sweet caramel start withabitterand peppery finish. One way or the other, it’s nice to see something besides a lager brewed in west Africa.

Sanft herb-malziger Antrunk. Spritzig würzig werdend, durch die leicht getreidige Herbenote zusätzlich frisch wirkend. Die Malzigkeit dehnt sich etwas aus, wirkt aber auch wässrig und daher etwas flach. Zum Ende wieder würzig-herb und erneut leicht getreidig. Einfach zu trinkendes Ambree.
Danke an quack-duck.

Bottle. Amber colour but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malty, caramel, spicy fruitiness (resembling coriander), tea. Very nice, taste is slightly worse. Heavy, sweet maltiness, citrusy-spicy, tea, some mandarine and faint banana. Light, slightly astringent bitterness at the back that is a minor flaw. Best one out of the Pelforth bunch. jaghana (6226) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 13, 2011
Bottle 25cl @Auchan. A clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is caramel like. Aroma is malty, on caramel, alcohol is quite present, very bitter and peppery. Less interesting than than the sping amber beer. Bit disapointed. AshtonMcCobb (6846) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2011
It pours a beautiful auburn autumn-leaf colour. The head looks good on pouring but it disappears after a few minutes. The nose gives off initial notes of ripe apples and pears. The taste is soft and malty with stewed apples on the finish. Reasonable structure but the finish is a bit confusing - neither refreshing nor rich and long. My general impression is that the palate does not live up to the aroma. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
