GABF 2005. Clear, deep golden body with a medium foamy off-white head. Mild aroma of citrus, floral esters, and light malt. Sweet honey-like flavor with some fruity esters and low bitterness. Too sweet and sticky. A lackluster Biere de Garde. I was very surprised to see this beer win a gold medal minutes after I sampled it.

Draft, Cap City Downtown RBSG 2006. Clear copper with a white head. Caramel, some grass, and light spice in the nose. Flavor has notes of spiciness, pepper, a touch of flowers and caramel. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Solid, drinkable stuff.

Draught at Downtown location during RBSG DC 06 Weekend
Clear amber color, no head and light lacing. Nose of lightly spiced beer, sweet malt, light carbonation, some esters and a touch of that ginger. Moderately hopped and floral. The flavor is sweet and syruppy, lightly tart and a bit of estesrs, but way too sweet and uncarbonated. Should be dry and fizze. N’est ce pas?

Pours yellowish with no head or lacing. I didn’t find much aroma in this beer. The taste was pretty much not there also. This may have been a light beer that was killed by others.
