At a tasting, thanks Zvikar, small stable head, almost completely clear pale orange colour, yeasty aroma with some herbs, flavours of herbs, tea, sugar, some metalic notes and a coarse alcoholic sensation. Unbalanced and pretty average.

@ a tasting, thanks Kabi, pours orange-yellow clear with a nice off-white head, aroma of cheese, milk, grass and easters, flavors of white wine, orange, banana and notes of clove, feels zesty and lively, finishes slightly bitter and spicy, medium bodied. Refreshing

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle drunk in the car on the Eurotunnel.
This was a freebie from the first class lounge thanks to the legendary Harrisoni blagging us an upgrade to flex-plus. Straight forward drinkable amber beer. Biscuity malt, faint bitterness, very downable. Fairly decent actually, just nothing to get excited about.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2009
Coppery colored with hazy appearance. Little yellow head. Fruity apricot-plummy aroma with spices and thin chocolate, nice hops also here. Medium bodied, slightly flat palate. Flavor has also plums with some grainy tone, chocolate also here. Aftertaste turns to hopped one, still somehow round.

33 cL bottle, thanks to my friend Bryan in Paris. Copper color, nice beige head. Caramel-malty nose with light grass-hop backbone. Tastes mildly sweet, malty, mild bitterness. Some cookie notes. Lively mouthfeel. Not bad, not too exciting either.

harrisoni (15649) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2006 There are 2 definite versions of this beer. A filtered and non filtered version. One is bright and very drinkable, although has no sediment, the other with a different label, but same ABV. The first is an easy drinking ambree with good malt and hop balance and very drinkable. In fact it went down without noticing. The second is a different beast. An orange gold dirty colour with a thin off white head with sediment in suspension. Yeasty orange zesty aroma. Really nice in mouth, creamy and zesty at the same time. Boy what a beer.This is incredible. A pleasing drinkable ambree in the filtered version and an in your face biere de garde with fresh spice herb nose, citrus. Gd French Admin anyone?

For the region and the style, this is an impressive brew. Now to the details: the nose is light and bready but sweet and not too alcoholic. The color is a very red-amber with a light carbonation. More than other Gardes, it has a bearable graininess and a bit of a cherry sweetness, though it lacks in flavor overall and is short on hops by a long shot.
