3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Garde Dog pours a bright golden color with a frothy white head. Minimal lacing is left behind as the head drops. The beer makes a nice presentation. The aroma is light on the nose with yeasty malt and some light fruitiness. Toasted grains and a light hop bitterness greet the tongue. A slight spiciness is lurking in the flavor as well. The aftertaste is moderately bitter, with a bit of sweetness left behind. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation.

Very hazy, golden. Not much of a hop aroma ...or flavor for that matter. Sweet but not overpowering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 4-28-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer presents a small head with good retention, transparent yellow body, visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is malty, spice notes, crisp, hops, sweet, and fruity. The Taste echoes the Aroma along with tasting somewhat dry. The Palate is fizzy and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is relatively easy to drink and is refreshing in its own way. This is a beer that did not have that WOW factor for me and therefore not a beer I will drink again.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little out of season but here goes... Pours a clear (unless you select to include the slight amount of yeast sediment available) golden yellow, effervescent, and a substantial, cream colored head which subsides but doesn’t disappear. Aroma is faint, bread/yeast, earthy with a hint of grapefruit/citrus. Flavor is mostly malty, with a nod towards sweet and and edge of dry hops. Medium to light body, nice lingering flavors. Overall, this beer fits my general tendancies towards a maltier brew. I could easily make this a regular.
