hoju777 (153) - Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2012
50 cl can from Franprix. Dark brown and clear. Smells sweet. Tastes ok. No flavor outside a bit of bitterness, but no bad flavors. Ok palate but watery taste.

ForlornHope (505) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Cans from a French hypermarket. Red-brown with a head that is beige, pours big but subsides to leave a slick head. Malty aroma with a hint of leafy, peppery hop. Sweet with a little bitterness. Rich and malty with flavours of fig and dates. Smooth and dry finish. Easy drinking malt forward beer - I like it.

DraftDodger (1408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2017
Provence 12/5 2017. 50 cl can from Spar. Albatros looking proudly at the horisont on the can. Pours clear maroon with white head. Settles as thin creamy layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is not very strong. Caramel, brown sugar and mild bitter tang. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is sweetish followed by light bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet. Quite sweet but delicate Brown Ale.

blariacum (74) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Fles. Goed alternatief om te drinken in veel Franse gelegenheden; redelijk goed bruin bier. Niet echt schokkend, zacht van smaak, maar goed te doen.

Foxbush (1979) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2017
330 ml can from Mini -Mart in Montmartre in Paris. The beer poured a clear brown color with tan head. The aroma of brown sugar and crystal malts are detected on the nose. The flavor is sweet with some hints of chocolate. The brown ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The ale is best in Paris so far. The finish has more sweetness than necessary.

19Oracolo78 (180) - ITALY - MAR 1, 2017
Birra dal colore ambrato con riflessi che Schiuma compatta, fine e persistente. Allolfatto sentori di caramello, miele e caff. Al palato corpo non troppo strutturato per una bock, note dolci e un po stucchevoli di caramello, caff. Nel finale rimane poco amara. Non una birra che mi fa impazzire.

Review: big 65cl bottle of Pelforth Brune: ABV: 6.5% Coming in a pretty nice looking 65cl bottle with a swing cap The appearance was of a nice enough dark brown colour with ruby red highlights that had a head which reduced dramatically in size. Some decent lacing but overall nothing special to look at. For the aroma I got a sweet initial smell of caramel malts but overall not a whole lot on the nose, very faint and not a lot going on. On Taste got a very smooth drink, very easy to drink, nice mouthfuls, very smooth. Not strong tasting, but did gets hints of caramel and plums and other fruits, but overall, truth be told, I struggled to get any real taste, some malts.not much else, and no presence of hops. Dark chocolate as well. A Coca cola style taste, lots of malts but no alcohol. Very smooth, pleasant and nice to drink, but for me it doesnt taste at all like a beer but more a strong version of coke with added sugar. Bland and disappointing all things considering. Some critics have compared this to an English ale, particularly Newcastle Brown Ale, while some even have found a likeness to porter. For me I just cant see these comparisons at all, yeah perhaps in appearance but definitely not in taste. The Pelforth Brune, for me, is just too sweet, far too sugary, too smooth and flavourless, and nothing at all like an English ale or porter. Disappointing.
