3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Golden color with a pretty nice, dying head. Smells wonderful of orange and clove. Flavor is dominated by a nice malty sweetness, very balanced, with taste of orange, citrus, banana and caramel. This one is very underrated. I will definitely buy this again, both due to the good taste and the low price.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. Pours a clear golden colour with a velvety white head. Aroma is pretty faint, not much going on. Taste is better than the aroma suggests. Quite sweet, but lacking character. Good beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl corcked bottle in Malaucene France.
A bit bland for a Biere de Garde. Taste and looks more like some type of blonde beer. However it is very smooth and refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden, very little head and a yeasty aroma with some sugary notes. Well masked, in a sense, as it isn’t very flavourful. Little happening. It’s simple, sweet and nothing special.

Amber pour with a frothy white head, lots of lace. Aroma: hops, grain, bread, grass, hint of citrus, slight dank, caramel. Taste and mouthfeel. Malty caramel sweetness, bready, hoppy/citrus bitterness. Medium carbonation and refreshing.

Aromas of fruits, yeast and cereals. Medium carbonation. Finish is long and spicy. A good "bière de garde", even if not the best one !

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.25 bottle. Pours nice and lasting white head. Aroma sweet, some fruits and bread, not impressive at all. Tastes watery in spite of 7.2 abv. Very dominating metallic taste, and some malty sweetness. Bitterness is low, mainly from alcohol. Not a good one. On a blind test I would say it is a strong lager.
