Amber pour with white mixed bubbles/foam; excellent clarity; good cap retention and solid ring; moderately heavy lacing. Caramel malt with a faint floral hop nose. Taste is sweet caramel malt, lite floral hops; toasted brown bread as liquid warms; slightly phenolic; some spice/coriander on the back end. Medium lite body, moderate carbonation; no warmth from 7.2%. Overall, malty sweet with some spice notes; an enjoyable Biere de Garde.

Got a .75l bottle as a present. With ingredients like rice, fructose, dextrose, ascorbic acid and caramel, it did not exactly lead to great expectations. I kept it in the cellar for a few years until it was about a year past its bbd. I expected a sweet chemical soup, but it turned out to be okay. Probably because i let it expire :).

Nice amber colour with a decent head of steady foam. Smell of herbal hops, malt and caramel. Same flavours in the taste, which got a decent malty profile going on and has a decent balance between sweet and bitter. Not a lot of complexity going on though. It's a bit like a German Altbier meeting a Belgian amber (like Palm or De Koninck). Medium-bodied.

I certainly don't recommend it though. Don't settle for a "not as bad as you might think, turns out to be okay"-beer with so many great alternatives around!
