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.

Had on tap right at the awesome on site brew pub.

The beer looks great deep brassy color

Smells of caramel, dark fruit, and toast

The taste is great starts malty and than the caramel, dark fruit and a slight sweetness hits aftertaste is a nice balance of malt and light hops.

The beer pours a coppery amber color. Has some yeast floating in it. The head on this beer is a frothy white color. The aroma smells of bread, biscuits, and malt. The taste is of caramel, baking bread, and biscuits. The lingering taste is of biscuits. The hops arent really noticeable, but there is a hint of noble hops. The mouthfeel is in between light and medium. Not as thick as a brown ale. With this being a malty sweet beer, it is very drinkable.

Pours clear and amber red with a moderate tan head.

Biscuity, bready nose. Caramel there, too.

Sweet and biscuity up front, levels to a moderately bitter, huge biscuit flavor midtongue. This beer is all biscuit.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, this is very sessionable.

Had on tap at Isaac's in Newtown.

A - An opaque, ruby burnt orange. Steady lacing throughout.

S - sweet, malty, with hints of sugar cane. flemish yeast.

T - Sweet up front but smoothes out to a yeasty almost tart/tang. Reminds me of Duchesse de Bourgone, belgian sour ale, without the sour part.

M - Pleasantly medium with a dry finish.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer as I had no idea what to expect. Unique and had me coming back for more. I'm going to look for this at my local store. Try one.
