Dark golden with a white head - malty taste with some bitterness - nice and drinkable beer SilkTork (5884) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2004
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. Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2005
Like the brune I was impressed with this. A good hit of caramel and malt with a nice balance. Once again great value by the 6-pack everywhere that ber can be acquired. NosirIwont (2606) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light amber (surprise :-) ) colour with an off-white head. Strong sweetish, acidic, fruity aroma - almost candy-like, but not in a yucky artificial way. Flavour is equally sweetish and fruity, but it works a bit better in the aroma than in the flavour. Metallic notes in the finish. KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 This Pelforth is, in my opinion, their best effort at a good brew. It pours a medium copper with a slightly offwhite head. The nose is floral and lightly fruity. The mouthfeel is lightly syrupy, but the carbonation clears this up a bit, and thus the beer avoids any medicinal aspects. The palate is fairly rich with fruits, light hints of alcohol, and some hops presence that all of the other beers in France seem to have forgotten about. This is, in some ways, something like a Sam Adams Boston lager - some hops, some caramel, and a nice balance. The flavor, however, seems to change with your mood, so when your feeling cheap, it feels the same.

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. rauchbier (3940) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2004
Bottle, DBF 2004. Amber gold, moderate white head and low condition. Low malt and gentle hop in the nose. Sweet malt and some hop in the mouth and a lingering hop resin finish. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - APR 17, 2005
Bottle. Amber with small head. Malt, caramel, prunes, hoppy edge , dry, pleasent enough. Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Pretty, clear amber colour with a fine, dense, creamy cappuchino-like head. Delicate, spicy and quite perfumy nose. Lightly sweet, caramel-like malt character. Very smooth with a short, dry lightly hoppy palate. 020705 hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
Brought from France by my colleague Peter. Amber with an off-white head. Sweet, honeyed, malty aroma. The taste is light, gentle, sweet, Seville orange withy malt and a pleasant, dryish close. Very easy to drink and enjoy.
