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!

jefcon (1391) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 11, 2014
Light, apple, some yeast, sweet malts. Toffee and caramel dominate the front end of the beer, with a fading finish that never gets the yeast out around to the front of the palate.

Drought. Reddish amber with small creamy beige head, very slight mocha aroma, high carbonation, fruit taste, sharp aftertaste after an abrupt finish. Interesting brew

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

chinchill (1881) - 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
