This Biere de Garde is a traditional, artisanal farmhouse ale from Northern France brewed and kep for consumption in warm weather. It is a medium bodied, malty amber ale brewed with high quality Pilsener and caramel malts. Delicately hopped with Czech Saaz for a nice spicy and peppery flavor and aroma, enjoying this ale doesn’t require a doctorate, just a vocabulary.

Draught at Arcadium. Dark and malty for the so called style. Too much caramel. Low carb. tasted more like an amber.

A wonderful French style release from the heart of Kentucky shines on a warm afternoon. The name alone should be a reason to try this. However even if it was called ’Slop Water’ it would be a fine beer for drinking as the season changes from winter to summer and the ice melts.

Aroma / Appearance - A ruby red base with opaque edges has a warm chestnut tint. A nice curl of ivory head is paired with wafting aromas of honey, molasses, malt, and only a mild booziness.

Flavor / Palate - Candy bar chocolate, malt, and dry flavors float over the tongue. This isn’t overly farmhouse but it does have a trace of Kentucky horse farm mud and trampled hay lurking in the wings. A floral polish caps off a well executed beer that might be the best on draft at the moment.

Patrickctenchi (6037) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Draft: Amber-brown with a short tan head. Earthy, old apple, toffee aroma. Taste is fruity, slightly yeasty caramel malt. Very smooth for the ABV. A different take on the style....nice.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a deep red-amber with no head. Aroma of spices, fruity funk, toasted malts, leaves, and earth. Flavor of leaves, toast, earth, mixed fruits, and peppery spice. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth, almost vinous mouthfeel. Not sure this is a straight-up BdG, but it’s a good beer.

tmongoose (2219) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 2, 2014
on draft poured a clear light amber color with little white head. aroma was of a farmhouse style ale had a fruity boquet maybe some banana or some other mild citrus. definitely get the malt base. the flavor was pretty much the same as the nose. mild to medium maltiness and was flavorful. the fruit was there more of banana and possibly some citrus. bits of hop bitterness but it was mild. evervescent and drinkable.

A much darker copper color than I'm accustomed to for a Biere de Garde. Not much on the nose, just a classic lager scent. Flavor is complex. Slightly spicy, maybe a bit of unsweet caramel? Very interesting and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
