redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Color is the same as conditioned stoneware cookware. Large off-white head. Sweet malt aroma and taste, slightly bitter. Not bad for $2/750ml.

SilkTork (5361) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 June, 2003Bottle. Quite a beefy little brew. Burnished copper like a freight train. Malty fruit aroma with a healthy whiff of tin. Oaky, slightly tannic. Quite ale like in body and taste. Tasty. [3.2]
July, 2006 Can. Tastes like a strong lager with a dirty socks & brown sugar flavour. The dirty grain (licorice/coffee) flavour is the main character, the remainder of the experience is that of low budget strong lager with sweetness and fizz as the main features. [2.4]

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Nice amber color,small head that faded quite quickly.Mildly spicey,fruity aroma.Malty sweet taste with hints of spice and definate fruit tones to it.I believe this is my first in this style,so don't chastize me for being a newb.but i know what i like and thias is a pretty decent brew and even though it was costly through my sorce it was well worth the bucks.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Deep orange/copper glow. Earthy, yeasty, some hops in the nose. Simple, soft and quite enjoyable. I expected a much more complex beer, but this has some caramel flavor along with slight hoppy and fruity end. The malts are still there in the aftertaste.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 21, 2003
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 ["champagne" bottle"]I wasnt expecting much after reading all the reviews here, but this one was sure a nice surprise, a very sweet fruity and hoppy nose, a beautiful light brown coppar color, and a nice sweet, fruity, a little hoppy taste. I want more of this...

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 16, 2003
I don't know what this stuff tastes like normally, but my bottle was mega old and way past it's prime. I hate liquor stores that don't rotate stock. The only thing I can say about the beer with any certainty is that it doesn't age well.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Like nigos I read Michael Jackson's descriptions of this beer and agree with him on all counts. The only word he left out was that it had a caramel nose to match its rich amber colour. Very good lacing in the glass. A beer that I would like to keep a lot of. RE-RATE: After a bit of keeping this actually becomes a bit cloying. It deserves to be downgraded.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2003
Great hoppy and slightly earthy nose. Fantastic deep bronze colour with a decent off-white foamy head. Like all Biere de garde this is made with a top-fermenting ale yeast and is unpasteurized. Has a syrupy start and develops orangy spicey, dry flavours in the finish. A great beer.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Just a whiff of hop aroma on top of an attractive copper colored beer. Smooth sweet maltiness, with just a touch of liquorice. Nice beer, especially for the price and excellent with food.

Betty (235) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2003
Pretty spicy or whatever. Easy drinking over lamb chops and spuds. Not a great beer, but an interesting one: wanks on a bit with the bottle business however. Just put a twisty on there for christ's sake. Thanks heaps though to my flatties for getting me a bottle for my birthday: love and kisses.
