The best of the Biere de Gardes I’ve tried. It tasted how French stubbies used to taste to me before I got into good beer, and started to find them disgusting. YBasically it’s a very straightforward lager, amped-up to 7% with prominent, bitter/herbal noble hops and and a very dry, cerealy finish.

Nice beer! Trying today to score a Dutch girl and this is a perfect warm up! Germany playing as well but there are more important issues!

In general it is not a bad beer, I would even say a reasonably good tasting beer. But it's not due to its expressive apearance or distinguished tasted. The beer tastes just balanced and soft. Although there is quite a high alcohol % it tastes pretty soft and a little sweet. However some fruity hop tones are also tasted. The softness could possible come from the added rice (ingredients). The koriander is difficult to determine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Golden with small white head. Malty and sweet (which gets a little cloying), banana, vanilla, mild hop charater. Creamy.

This one was a great surprise! Lot of taste, acid and sweet (good balance), generous on the alcohol side. Tasted like old time.

Fine flavour and mild taste, but a bit borring and pale. Maybe good on a very varm sommerday instead of water.
