Pelforth – Brune 6.5%
This is a very dark chestnut colour, with strong rich malt aroma. It has a malty barley wine taste, with spicey Christmas notes.
This is my favourite ale in France, well Normandy, available throughout France. Although the Pelican Brewery has benn part of Heineken since 1988, this remains a good ale if you like darker, stronger malt beers.
