Ljunkan (530) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2008
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.

Sdaniel90 (523) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 4, 2013
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

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2006
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.

janubio (509) - SPAIN - APR 17, 2014
750 ml. bottle. Amber colour with a persistent head, lace and ring all over. Smell of honey, chocolate, caramel, ripened fruits and brandy. Medium to full body, it pass through your tongue very easily, but leaving an alcohol feeling. Taste is alcoholic, honeoy, fruits, caramel, flowers and some chocolate.

PeatyPete (504) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2013
Golden yellow beer with a quickly vanishing head. Aroma of sweet fruit. Taste is sweet, full and round. In the aftertaste some wood.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2008
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.

Sizzler80 (501) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 9, 2013
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.

cagou007 (496) - FRANCE - NOV 25, 2010
Aromas of fruits, yeast and cereals. Medium carbonation. Finish is long and spicy. A good "bière de garde", even if not the best one !

greenmanalishi (493) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2006
75cl bottle. A pleasant, fresh, clean beer but not too much to write home about. grassy hops, but slightly metallic aftertaste.

mariuszek (493) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 19, 2014
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.
