I had this one straight from the The Frog & Rosbif in Paris. As is the rest of their brews this on was quite excellent also. It had a very rich and creamy head. It had a very full aroma and was simply delicious. This is one brew I will never forget because of the circumstances in which i had it.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight roasted malt, and citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight caramel malt, and slight wheat. Overall, good appearance, feel, and blend.

reconstructed from notes -

this was served in a proper pint via a hand pump, however, a bit too cold to the touch to be cellar temp

the beer is amber in color, hazy, with a lovely thick pad of foam atop that stays fairly together till the last drop, clinging nicely in spits around the glass... that's the good part

the immediate sensations were and overall assessment is that of dully bitter, old vegetal hops and oxidized grain similar to stale Cheerios...

it drinks fairly light, as it should, and the intensity of the somewhat-off flavors do subside a bit... i did finish the whole pint, of course... but I wasn't crawling over the bar to get another

if I had to guess what this beer is like being had in its 'perfect pint' window, I would say that, overall, it leans more toward grainy, bready flavors more akin to a wheat beer, though certainly retaining a healthy, relatively robust (if dirty) bitterness

go with their witbier instead

Cask @ The Frog & Rosbif, Paris. Served at true English beer temperature. This one poured a hazy, slightly amber dark golden color. There was a fair off-white head that left some lacing. Nice aroma of some citrus and piney hops, with just a bit of caramel malt peaking through. The beer had a medium body, with a slightly bitter taste. Very smooth and easy drinking. Nice.

such a cool beer, poured out of one of those not quite round bottles, written all in french, simply frogbeer logo on the label, otherwise this is a rarity on american shores from what i gather. they call it a pale, but it has a great yeast characteristic to me, almost bretty, at least saison-esque, radiating in both the smell and taste of this hazy pale straw colored beer. the hops are mild but different, in the tettnanger style with grassy notes and soft lime, but the grain bill confuses me. wheat or two row or both? its got the haze and weight of wheat, but the almost doughy roundness of the two row, tough to tell. a well flavored beer that seems closer to a wild ale than an american pale, but a very enjoyable brew. its feel is the best part, dry as hell, well carbonated, and pillow soft despite tickling effervescence. my first and only frog beer to date, how do i get my hands on some of their others without heading off to paris? tasty and interesting session beer.

From a sampler at the St. Denis location. Deep amber color with a medium beige head and light lacing. The aroma is mostly malty with a touch of floral hops. Medium body and not really bitter at all. The hops are mild and there is more than enough malt to counterbalance. This actually seems closer to an Amber in many regards. The finish is on the sweet side with some fruit thrown in. Not a bad beer, but not really in line with the category they are trying to achieve.
