COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

It has a solid amber color. The aroma is of toasted caramel, malt, dough, and some yeast. It has a crisp flavor of caramel, toffee, and malt. Its has a fairly smooth finish. Its a great beer to drink with a pleasant flavor. Always a great choice.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2018
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, deep amber to chestnut colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Nutty and mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel and subtle fruity accents. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a well-carbonated mf. Toasted malty taste with present caramel, some burn off-notes and berry-fruity accents; sweet and slightly bitter hoppy finish with hints of booze shining through. Rather imperfect. 11.I.18

Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, straw, and fruits, leading to a bitter finish.

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish copper with a finger of off-white head that lingers. Light grain forward notes. Rustic grains, rye and light biscuit malts. Toffee and malt on the palate. Clean and crisp....light peppery hops. Really enjoyable dinner beer.

Sort of bitter. Does not finish smooth. Good color. At Shaw’s oyster bar in Chicago. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is something special about a sweet, malt-forward beer, that is light in color, and also crisp and dry. But I didn't love it... it left me wanting more farmhouse funk or something.

DraftDodger (1791) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2017
Copenhagen 2/11 2017. 35,5 cl bottle from Ørsted Vin. Very graphic label in something resembling weird 1970 style patterns on brownish background with a strange whirl which is the brewery's symbol in the centre. Pours clear amber with small white head. Settles as thin patchy layer of foam. Aroma is not particularly strong. Fairly sweet. Sweet malts, candy and caramel. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is rather sweet with a sugary touch. Only rudimentary bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet, candylike and slightly sticky. Too much Candy Store for my taste.

2.2
seymour (2121) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into nonic pub glass, a crystal-clear orange amber colour with white foam, short-lived but left some lace. Aroma very grainy, grassy, mildly peppery kind of like a Pilsener plus very slight Belgian yeast spice. Flavour same but way too sticky sweet, and too hot fusel alcohols, like a gas station malt liquor. Medium body, high carbonation, syrupy aftertaste. Not sure what they were going for, but I didn't like it.

3.3
MaltOne (408) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2017
Nice intro to the category - has all the characteristics in moderation. A little farmyard funk, a little wild, spicy yeast, a little sweetness, good body.

2.6
jfb (6984) - GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
(bottle) slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of powdered sugar and peaches, quite oxidized, with a hint of apricots and lots of syrup. flavour is mostly caramelized malts and burnt toffee, rather nondescript, with some notes of earth, ethanol and a light-bitter peppermint finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

2.2
Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - OCT 1, 2017
Clear light brown with almost no head. Aroma is dusty malt, nutty syrup, alcoholic, hints of chocolate. Taste is more or less the same. Harsh and alcoholic. Not smooth. Nope.
