Aurelius (4127) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Nice sweet, leathery, yeasty malt aroma. Hazy, woody brown, lotsa sediment. Way sweet, tastes like honeysuckle with an underlying astringency. Aspirin-bitter finish. I guess this is good beer, but I'm just too unsophisticated to appreciate it. Difficult drinking.

Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2003
This copper-amber coloured French Bière du Garde, really has a suitable name, beer to keep. After 2 years in the cellar it gets a little less sweeter in the 75 cl bottles.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2004 No head, amber body. I didn't get much more than a malty-sweetness in both aroma and taste. Pleasent but not memorable.... 2 years of aging has made for a more rounded and memorable experience with maple syrup and bicuits. (7,3,7,3,14)

jimhilt (2401) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Pours with a medium head, leaving some lace. Nice amber color. Malty, citrus orange nose. Starts sweet and fruity and finishes with some tartness and underlying hops. Medium bodied. Very different for a French beer. Served at Passports in Glouster, MA ($4.75).

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2003
(bottle) slightly hazy copper. Aroma fruity/yeasty, but no yeast in flavor, which is sweet, carmel, aromatic with noticable alcohol.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 12/20
Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Nice nose, malty. Caramel, tea, fruity but not much hops. Beautiful dark amber clear with custard white pillowy lacing head. Medium watery body and medium soft carb. Taste is actually kind of weak. A little sweet malt, no hops. A distinct flavor is present in the finish (paper?) - may be the style. Alcohol. Almost no after.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2003
Red/Amber colour with a small head. Malt and a bit of fruit in the aroma. Taste of malt, spice and caramel. Nothing exceptional, but still a appreciable. In southern France, it is often the only decent beer available at the grocery.

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 14/20
jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2003
Bottle. Reddish colour, little head. Sweet fruit and spice in the aroma and in the flavour. Not overpowering. Thin but smooth body, not overly carbonated.

SBgoodDave (13) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2003
Tasty. A mellow ale like brew. Lovely mild flavour with depth of malt character. Smooth on the palate and little to no bitter aftertaste.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Pretty mellow beer overall and nothing too exciting. Toasted malts do offer some character, mildly nutty, mildly chocolaty, with a little sourness in the finish, but pretty straightforward. As Oakes says: "simplistic vienna malt character."
