Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Orange to amber color, with a decent white head. Aroma is somewhat sweet, musty and some hints of alcohol. Malty and smooth taste, with a nice hoppy finish. Good mouthfeel. Decent.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2004
Well this may to a beer "to keep" but this one didn't keep all that well. Was starting to show signs of oxidation but was still pretty decent. Musty, corky aroma with a fair bit of stone fruits (apricot and peach I think). Slight sourness which played very nicely with the sweet maltiness and slight bitterness. Good amber/copper colour and head retention.

brewbear (48) - 3096 Oberbalm, SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2004
Nice amber!!!! Smooth, fruity, malty flavour with nice hoppy bitterness, a bit too much pasteurized (stewed hops in the finish).

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 9, 2004
A fellow ratebeerian whose name I've forgotten (sorry) had once told me that sushi tastes better with a biere de garde instead of the usual japanese dry lager... and well, he was damn right! Deep red body, medium head, mostly lasting. Rather wide range of flavour encompassing spices, orange (it may be the season, but I keep detecting orange flavours in all my beers these days!), and a somewhat rusty aroma. Strongly hoppy but balanced overall. Dry finish. Very nice, original and drinkable. This one has to be the first french brew that I really liked.

Amber biere de garde. 750 ml bottle with champagne style cork. Lively fizz. Nice dark amber appearance. Malty nose. Some balancing bite on the palate. Quite full bodied. Soft finish. Bottled, France, December 2003

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2004 Bottled. Amber coloured beer with strong toffee aromas. Fairly sweet and sticky. Certainly a winters beer, just fit for tonight. Re-rated, 1 Feb 04: Thought it was slightly better the second time around.
