2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy amber from a bottle. Aroma of grain, flavor a sweet maltiness with some barnyard funk/hay. A little too sweet for my taste. Okay beer.

An okay amber beer. Malty and sweet, but not particularly distinctive. Mild and smooth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Malty notes of toasted crust, caramel, and a coarse graininess. Subtle notes of yeast spiciness.
A: Pours a red/amber color with only a mild haze.
T: Caramel and toffee mingle in with the grainy and toasty flavors. Earthy and musty yeast is present with hints of spicy pepper and alcohol burn. Some dried fruit notes also.
P: Medium body with soft carbonation.
O: A very nice Bier de Garde, albeit a little bigger and darker than they usually come.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
30-Jan-14 (750-ml corked-and-caged bottle: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)
This beer has a hazy, dark-golden body and half an inch of off-white head that settles to a ring and dusty sheet. The nose is sweet and fruity, with caramel, brown sugar, honey, and ripe apples. Pretty similar on the palate, lots of sweeter, malty, and fruity flavors like brown sugar, baked apples, caramel candy, and a gentle, dried grassiness. Sweet to bitter ratio is clearly on the sweet side as the beer is medium sweet but very lightly bitter (practically non-existent, actually). It’s medium in weight, light-medium in carbonation, and very smooth and easy to drink. Overall, this is a pretty simple, straight-forward beer that focuses on the malt, but since I actually enjoy malty beers, this has offered a nice break from the tendency toward more extreme beers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Der Antrunk ist laff-süßlich. Im Hauptteil wird es herber und muffiger. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht herb-süßlich, wobei die chemich-muffig-süßliche Note überwiegt. Insgesamt ist es aber sehr laff.
Es schmeckt ein Bißchen, wie frische Frühlingserde riecht...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours an unclear orange with a soapy white head that fades to a thin soapy film and collar. Aroma is skunky funk some yeast straw grassy and malt. Taste is sweet malty yeast a little funk/skunk flavors along with grass straw and faint fruit/citrus flavors that tail off to some cardboard. Palate is thin slightly fizzy and dry. Not a bad brew, but not going in any real stand out direction!

New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($3.50): Pours a light amber with a whitish head. Aroma is honey, yeast, and maybe some flowers. Taste is rather sweet and malty, without too much else going on. Hops are barely there. Body is close to medium. Beer is meh.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly fruity, vague apple notes. Flavor is clean and crisp with a tart sweet finish almost like a less sweet apple cider. Fairly decent, probably wouldn’t go for it again though.

Bouteille (merci,Stephane!): Golden with a greenish sheen, small and stable foamy layer, moderate sweetish-grainy nose with some citrussy hops in the background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly lingering malty and hoppy finish. Quite good by french standards.......
