250ml bottle poured into leffe goblet. Half a finger head. Clear, ruby brown colour. Perfume aroma dominates, there are some hops there. You can taste the malt, it's on the sweet side. Smooth mouthfull, goes down well. It's a drinkable beer, but not quite what I remember, not too complex but two or three would be ok.

I tasted a couple of 250ml bottles of this in September 2005. The bottles were purchased in France.

Poured a nice amber (what else?) colour with a decent off-white head.

Smelled of faint hops.

Tasted a nice full flavour, hops again with an honest reminder of the alcohol amount. Tasted a little like a stronger English bitter. Average mouthfeel.

Overall a solid brew, I was happy to have a couple of these.
