Found this in an expat grocery store in Shanghai and thought I'd give it a go.

A: The beer is a dark orangey amber color with an off-white head that is around 2.5 fingers thick and last a minute or so.

S: A malty smell with some bread and a hint of honey sweetness. A bit of yeast lures in there, but overall a malty aroma. Some toffee and caramel are inside as well, but a bit faint.

T: A lot more malty than I imagined for some reason. Some butterscotch is the first major note I noticed, and then some bread and toast. Buttery note remains on the palate for a little while. Finishes pretty smoothly with more malty flavor.

This is more like an English bitter than what I expected. Pretty nice taste, malt-wise. A little unbalanced, but it was very drinkable.

Levrette, or "doggy-style" in French.
This is the organic version, with certified organic malt and hops. Website on bottle: http://www.i-love-ret.com/bio/

A: Pours a clear copper amber color with light beige head. Little retention but decent looking.

S: Toasty malt and faint fruit, primarily white raisin and grape, light wildberry, faint hops.

T&M: Same as aroma, well-balanced malt and hop bitterness, both restrained but clearly present. Can't place the hops...slightly floral, bit of wood, & well-rounded. Carbonation is moderate and just right.

O: Nice little discovery...I thought with the name it'd be a gimmicky beer with crap flavor, but it's the real deal, and although not cheap I'd buy it from time to time.
