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

Espuma de boa formação e pouca persistência. Aroma de caramelo, e damasco. No sabor, damasco, comedio dulçor e amargor, que persiste um pouco no final. Final suave. Boa cerveja. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a chalice glass. A: Pours a dark yellow to orange color. A bit cloudy. Forms a medium, creamy and very persistent white head with lots of lingering lacings formed and left in the glass S: Sweet and very grainy. Fruity, bready and and a little bit spicy. Quite Belgian character which is common on the French CHTI beers. Also light notes of honey, orange zest, spices and flowery hops T: Follows the nose as a quite sweet and malty beer. Fruity esters. Strong notes of bready and earthy yeasts, again, Belgian character. Also some notes of honey, coriander and orange zest which reminds a classic Belgian Triple. End is dry with a mild hoppy bitterness M: Full body. A little bit molasses. Good carbonation to the style. Dry crispy and grainy aftertaste O: Average beer and drinkability. Not that bad for a French Ale [ BA Review @ 3/25/2013 ]

Golden clear body and a small white head. Fresh hop aroma, alcohol. The taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long nice bitter finish.

Pyobon (943) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2014
(Bottle) Clear golden amber with reasonable white head. Rather harsh aroma of grassy and metallic hops. Light bodied and fizzy. Rather odd flavour profile. Rather harsh peppery spice notes from start to finish, with some honey and banana ester notes. Distinctive but not particularly pleasant.

Kind of sweet, kind of bitter, but doesnt really taste like anything. Better than tasting bad, I suppose, but I certainly wont be travelling halfway around the world to get another taste.

Bottle. A somewhat flat and weak head but this give quickly gives way to a floral and nice aroma (with hints of honey). A nice, strong beer with hints of wheat.
