2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from French supermarket. Pours clear golden with a medium persisting white head, good lacing. The smell is strong malty and yeasty, malty and strong hoppy in the mouth, but not very specific. The taste is heavy bitter, medium sweet, with a long bitter aftertaste, the sweetness decreasing faster. The palate is oily, heavy bodied. Strong and rather well balanced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Didn’t really like some of the flavor of this one, alcohol was also way too strong.
