Mild haze to the otherwise clear, amber color. Starts with a moderate head, but dies to a ring of bubbles. Very little lace.

Strong crystal malt aromas with a touch of sugar. Reminiscent of honey and caramel. Attractive to the nose.

Slightly sweet, this is an caramel-tasting amber. Very little hop. Rich body with a below average level of carbonation. Easy to drink, similar to an American amber.

The head, made of regular but big bubbles faded quickly on a bright red purple color body. Very active. The smell is malty but a bit weak; maybe fruity hints of porto. The taste is enjoyably malty, showing grilled malts with a nice roundness in the mouth. Some chestnut, and notes of citrus. A bit bready in the mouthfeel, but not like the light notes of spice bread they talk about on the label.The hops show some fruity or herbal notes, but everything is a bit too hidden, too subtle. The beer lacks a more pronounced character.

Beer bottle (33cl.), tasted in 2004.

Appearance : amber color (brewed based roasted malt), with white foam head.
Smell : malty and fruity and herbal aromas.
Taste and mouthfeel : malty, light shades of caramel and gingerbread give it a feeling of fullness and freshness.
Drinkability : a good beer in the style amber lager ?
