Poured this French Country Ale into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. This is the first time I have tried this style. The beer poured a clear, slightly amber straw color. It produced a nice white head and had average lacing. The aroma of the beer was sweet, smelled of fresh baked bread and had a hint of spice that I can't put my finger on. The aroma was wonderful. One of the best smelling beers that I have ever had. The taste was malty, a little bready, slightly dry and had notes of raisins and pear. There was some bitterness from hops that melded with the other flavors. Very complex beer. Awesome, I will be looking for this again. In fact a road trip might be in order.

Bought a single bottle on a whim, and I'm very impressed. This is a brown ale done right.

Serving type: Admittedly I drank this straight from the bottle, and this beer genuinely deserves to be poured and savored.

Appearance: Looks reddish through the bottle, somewhat opaque.

Smell: Enticing! The slightest hints of coffee and chocolate and a very drinkable hop aroma. Also something fruity, with a bit of the characteristic citrus of an American pale ale.

Taste: Extremely clean and rather refreshing for such a hearty breed of beer. Satisfying hop taste, might overpower certain delicate flavors in food. A touch of bitterness, though the aftertaste is quite sweet.

Mouth: Pleasant carbonation, just the right amount to pair with food and expect to clear the palette. Progresses into a nice foam finish.

Overall: This is truly a winning beer. I've been an IPA drinker for a while and I've recently discovered my passion for stouts and porters- I would recommend this to absolutely anyone remotely interested in beer.

A light amber beer with incredible amounts of flavors - all well balanced. I was surprised at the myriad of flavors, from spices to fruits to caramel, but it all works so well. And, somehow, the beer goes down easy and is very light. It is a sweet beer, but nothing over the top. All in all, this is a great beer for sitting around a porch, chatting, and just having a high quality crafted beer.
