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.

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.
