Beertobealive (302) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Large white head, fainting quickly with light cereals aroma. Body is clear and yellow. Taste not bad but too light in hops and bitterness and too basic with remaining barley taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Yellow orange pour, nice white head with a touch of lacing. Hop forward nose, grassy with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is grainy and dry with grassy hop notes. Body is soft with mild carbonation. Kind of bitter and dry on the finish.

g_georgiou (291) - CYPRUS - SEP 22, 2013
Light coloured with good retention. Sweet aromas, caramel and flowers. Taste is sweet. Easy beer, not the best but balanced enough to be enjoyed.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2009
Flat nose like wet paper. Golden color is the best part of the beer. Aroma of grapefruitbitters in smell taste and very harsh bitter aftertaste. Not a pleasant beer at all.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 Nice color, great taste. Cheap for a Biere de garde

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Ah, Goudale. The definition of the bad Biere de Garde. This pours a highly carbonated yellow into a giant chemical head. The head settles and you sample the nose and are slightly offended by the salty French "special malts" that catch your nose and you think you are tasting a mixture of salty Nord-Pas de Calais factory fumes, a cow field, and that patiserie next to that Turk restaurant in Maubeuge that nevertheless tempted you with doughy delights each time you passed under its crusty facade. That is to say that this beer isn’t all that bad --like Nord-Pas de Calais is bearable with a cute girl on the coast in July-- but it is still bad. The alcohol is annoyingly prevalent for no apparent reason, as it supplements what is basically all grains and a complete absence of balance in the hops. The defines "super-fermented" malt-liquor that is norther French beer.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2010
Aroma is yeast, coriander, belgian blonde style. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, spicy, caramel malts and very good bitterness more than balancing up the sweet.
