The best of the Biere de Gardes I’ve tried. It tasted how French stubbies used to taste to me before I got into good beer, and started to find them disgusting. YBasically it’s a very straightforward lager, amped-up to 7% with prominent, bitter/herbal noble hops and and a very dry, cerealy finish.

Grumbo (1767) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle from France, exact source not recalled. Poured clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma of bread, malt, some sweet fruit, also a bit alcoholic. Medium sweetness, light bitterness and touch of sour. Medium body, slight oily texture. Dry finish.

Ysok02 (1203) - Mons, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2016
Robe dorée, mousse crémeuse. Nez assez simple, malt, houblon, céréales. Bouche dans le même registre, simple, fine bulle, courte. Pas de grand intérêt.

From 750ml bottle. Poured with modest head which dissipated rapidly to minimal head retention. Modest aroma of bitterness and white wine. Tastes of base malt with a decent hint of modest bitterness. Not a bad beer

MrHangover (4184) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle, 75cl. Pours a clear golden amber beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of mostly yeasty esters and grain, hint of honey and cinnamon. Flavor is mildly sweet, grainy, bready and yeasty. A hint of white fruits in there, alongside some boozy notes. Mild carbonation, long sweet finish and overall a bit dull. Ok.

Inoven (443) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2016
Fles gedeeld bij vrienden. Helder goudgeel bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is kruidig. Smaak van mout en hop. Nasmaak is hoppig en een beetje wrang.
