A: Golden body. Small diminishing off-white head.
S: A pongy, plasticy smell.

Beer #3 from France
Poured in small wine glass

A: thin head; clear, amber color; seems inert
S: thin aroma; malty, a bit of lager, much like a eurolager
T: sweet, strong malt and yeast presence; esters; a bit of banana and clove; not much hops; very good specimen for the genre; aggressive and complex

750 ml. bottle. Amber colour with a persistent head, lace and ring all over. Smell of honey, chocolate, caramel, ripened fruits and brandy. Medium to full body, it pass through your tongue very easily, but leaving an alcohol feeling. Taste is alcoholic, honeoy, fruits, caramel, flowers and some chocolate.

Got this one in France while on vacation last summer.

From a 750 into a tulip

APPEARANCE: Pours a three finger, medium looking, fluffy, white head with great retention. Perfectly clear amber yellow with lower levels of carbonation. Fades to a splotchy wisp that leaves some lacing down the glass. A slight wisp remains the whole way leaving some nice, chunky lacing down the sides.

SMELL: Toasted malts, caramel, some green fruits, and some earthy, floral hops on the nose. Bold enough.

TASTE: Toasted malts, caramel and green fruits, like apples and pears, much like the nose had indicated. A grainy, toasted finish of bread, earthy hops and some spicy notes from the alcohol. Much like a Belgian strong pale or a lighter triple.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Semi-creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly sticky. Okay here.

OVERALL: A decent beer to be sure. Much like a stronger Belgian pale or a lighter triple, but this one showcased a good array of flavors and drank away quite easily. Must be pretty widely available in France, so a worthy choice if you're in a pinch.
