bottle. Clear golden-brown colour, medium-sized head. Aroma of roasetd malt and caramel. Malty flavours with hints of caramel and roasted malt, slightly fruity. Hoppy and dry in the finish. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 650ml fliptop. Deep bronze pour with a generous white head. Candyish, slightly honeyish nose. Caramel, candy sugar and honey sweetness. Some of the creamy, slightly roasted maltiness of the Brune with a more assertively bitter and faintly metallic finish. Uncomplicated, but pleasant enough. ogivlado (7810) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottled 250ml. -from Geant Albertville. Dark golden/pale amber coloured, small off-white head, mild malty spicy nose. Sweet malty, caramel and spices with hoppy notes in the finish. Bitter finish. Not bad at all. AshtonMcCobb (6581) - 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. jaghana (6065) - 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.

Bottle. Amber colour with a off-white head. Sweet malty, dry fruity aroma and a sweet caramel, dry fruity taste. Medium body and a sweet finish. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2013
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.

Bottle. A fairly pleasant malty beer. Irn Bru caramel tones with the faintest hint of licorice - perhaps from roasted malts. Difficult to pick up on that extra hop flower extract that’s mentioned on the bottle. The malt is the main thing. Interesting flavours start to become more defined - and some may be hop influenced: ginger bread, short-cake, Terry’s chocolate orange.... Nice. Even the carbonation is soft and attractive. I liked this. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
Amber coloured. Rather weak aroma with some malty notes. Notes of tea in the flavour. Rather thin. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2008
Sweet, very floral. Amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, malty, floral, light bitter. Sticky, rather full, almost oily. Well balanced, nice flavors, bit clean. Probably one of those beers that’s underrated here simply because people think "it’sbrewed by Heineken, this must be shit".
