COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style country ale is deep amber in color. With a toasty, sweet caramel start, it finishes with just enough hops to clean off the palate. Bon Appetit!

bottle. Amber with small head. Light body with caramel malt, lightly sweet. Bitter finish with some hops. Not bad, but not the farmhouse-style beer I was expecting.

Love this. Great color and mouthfeel. Nice clean tart finish and a little sweetness upfront.

chinchill (1808) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2014
12 oz. bottle with a 20 June 2014 date stamped on the label. Pours clear, medium-dark amber with a creamy tan head that has good durability and leaves fine lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with faint hints of vanilla and spices. The flavor features a solid, medium malt base with hints of herbs, orange and grapefruit. Changes with warming. Medium body with very fine, soft, medium-high carbonation. O: Refreshing. An interesting, easy drinking and complex brown ale.

Was introduced to this beer on draft at Publik House in Peoria IL. I really enjoyed it there. Decided to pick up 6 bottles for home and have been less than impressed with the overall flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like this one a lot. Not so sure about Biere de Garde -- not much Euro yeast. That said, love the maltiness. Love the sweetness. Very very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

http://imgur.com/GBYLvXI - Bottle. Pours clear copper with moderate white head. Smells of honey, spice, and acidic notes. Drinks smoothly with little lingering bitterness. Light bodied. Tastes of honey, caramel, and wood. Drinkable, but somewhat unremarkable.

Pretty solid amber red colored pour of medium clarity, small amount of white foam on head. Cottony sweet aroma, bright citrus, strawberry, cream and carmel, some sour rubbery british malts too. Taste is light and crisp with an apple-like flavor mixed with light salted carmel, a little sour and effervescent on the finish. Somehwat lively carbonation and a dry crisp finish that’s a little filmy. Nice and light, similar to an english style pale ale but a little more crisp and bright.
