Brasserie du Mont Blanc La Rousse (750ml Bottle)
An amber beer that combines 3 malts and several hops, including Alsace Strisselspalt with very aromatic floral notes, all enhanced with a unique bouquet of spices.
La Rousse is a beer of contrasts: the initial taste is full-bodied and malty, followed by gourmet notes of caramel and toasted almonds, with a fruity finish.
“Mont-Blanc’s La Rousse, an iron fist in a velvet glove…”
A style without definition, amber ales range from bland, vaguelly caramelly beers to products with a fairly healthy malt and hop balance. Often the differentiation between a quality amber and an American Pale is that the amber might have more dark malt character, or a less assertive hop rate.
