“Garde Dog” Biere de Garde is unfiltered with a hazy, deep golden to light copper appearance. Brewed with domestically grown French Hops and German Pilsner Malts, it gives craft beer drinkers a very enjoyable, light-bodied, subtlety sweet beer with toasty malt undertones. Garde Dog is the perfect compleiment to lighter fare such as seafood, salads, cheese and Middle Eastern and Indian foods

Bottled@White Horse Parsons Green. Hazy golden colour, small head. Aroma is fruits, hops, wood, grass as well as some earthyness. Flavour is much the same. Quite fruity hoppy for being a biere de garde.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2009
Bottled at Sorbon, Bromma, Stockholm. Lightly hazy golden, fairly small head. Fruity banana aroma. Sweet and fruity with bubblegum, paper and apples as well as overripe banana and toffee. Medium bodied with near no bitterness. More if a weizen than a bière de garde. Rather sketchy and a bit sloppy.

Hazy amber beer, no real head. Carbonation is low but provides a little bite at the end. Smooth and crisp. Sweet maly with traces of banana and cloves. Very easy drinking beer.

Hazy deep blond color. Soft aroma, malt, fruity chewing-gum, paper; strange, only for lovers of the simple beers. Fizzy and sweetish malt, a bit spicy, correct bitterness, light herbal touch. Simple.

harrisoni (14128) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Hazy gold, lasting off white head. Yeasty aroma. Some citrusy fruit aroma too. Reminds me definitely of some of the better French biere de gardes. In fact its very good with good yeast character, decent malts and then some very good hops on the end, which are balancing citrusy orangey hops rather than big dumb stupid American ones. Really very drinkable and I liked it very much.
