Golden body, clear. Little aroma, light malty, cereal and clean yeast. Light bitter, simple accessible taste, very short aftertaste. Well enough made but too boring for me. As expected. (75cl bottle from Auchan)

Draft @ Novare Res. Pale yellow color with thick full head, good retention in the Tulip. Light malty nose. Flavor is mild yeast providing a light fruit. I also get a light grain. Lighter in body with a short finish. Very plain and simple. Drinkable but I wasn’t craving another glass.

Clear dark blond colour. Flavour has sweet stale malts. Much too sweet and has a metallic finish.

0.75 l bottle at Auchan. I was surprised about a beer like that in this hypermarket. The color was gold-orange, the nose was not so strong. In the taste dominates the sweety malt with some fruity things. And the beer was not expensive:)

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 7, 2007
750ml bottle, corked and caged: Poured deep golden yellow, almost orangeish, with a medium sized white head. Quite a bit of herbal hop aroma. Slight fruit notes with apple and grape. Flavor is solid: bitter hoppiness with a touch of fruit and grains. Clean. Goes down well.

Ooh, nice smoky steam pouring out of the just-corked big bottle. Pours very nicely with a strong fluffy head, but unfortunately very little is identifiable in the aroma. Taste is a very average Bière de Garde style of malts and some syrupiness, which means there’s not much to make this one stand out from the pack of widely distributed beers of this type. Found at my local supermarket, and you can find better Bières de Garde there aside from this one for pretty much the same price.
