Bière du Garde is not supposed to be in small bottles or cans, but I can handle that...But the colour...Has anyone heard of a pale stout??

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 I had planned to make number 100 a czech beer, but this was a surprisingly good substitute. A nice golden color with a creamy head. A little fruity and sweet. Both hops and malt in the taste. Nice body and a very clean finish. A very nice surprise...

clear pale golden colour, fine head and a nice lace, caramelized sugar, some spices and fruits (orange ?), (too) sweet, quite light-bodied, the finish is fruity with a touch of alcohol - modest

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light golden color, fizzy white head. Light grass in the nose with a perfumy fruit character. Hints of spice also present in the nose. The body is sweet with hints of honey. Typical of a blond ale, with none of the characteristics of a biere de garde. Not too bad, bordering on too sweet, but the spices add a nice compexity to an otherwise boring blonde.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Incredibly floral scent. Smells like an english garden. Gold in colour, with little head and no lacing. Taste is slightly sweet initially. Then a hopped bitternes, with a faint sweet finish. Generally very pleasing.
