Decent Biere de Garde. Nice aroma - the yeast shines. Golden Blonde in color. Smooth flavor, nice sipper with a decent alcohol punch.

Malty and floral aroma. Nice amber color and lasting white head. Good carbonation. It's very well balanced. There is spice, malt, and a touch of bright hops. It's warming and very pleasant.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle . Pours amber with a slight haze and a thin off white head. Aroma is is molasses and bread. Big malt up front but an off putting finish for me, almost medicinal, maybe an old bottle, there was no date. Not that good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours medium amber with a quick white head that eventually fades into a ring. Looks alright. The aroma is roasted malts, herbs, vague fruit, and a wrinkle of sour. OK body. Mildly sweet flavor so the sourness fades. Malts and a mildly bitter finale. Drinkable would be the best definition.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Aroma of caramel and malt, but only slightly. The taste is like a lot of nasty malts and other flavors coming together in some sort of weird, incestuous lovesession. This is godawful. There’s a weird hoppy finish, but it really just tastes watery and bland at the end. Do not recommend. 6% alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color, slightly cloudy, with a marginal white head. Not much of an aroma. Very slight caramel aftertaste, but no other real character.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazed Amber ale with a thick frothy light mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light mineral notes, grassy hop, ok. In mouth, a rather harsh interpretation of a Bière de garde, with cereals, grassy hop, tart character, a bit off. On tap at Coney Island on tap.
