She's a keeper is definitely true to it's name! Delicious sweet malt character of toffee, caramel, biscuit, and fresh baked bread are complimented by a slightly spicy and herbal finish. Dry, but not overly so, and a touch fo a sweetness without being cloying. This copper, brownish beer is perfect for a garlic and herb roasted lamb chop, or other rustic farmhouse fare.
BIERE DE GARDE
Medium to high malt flavor often with a toasty-rich, biscuity, toffee-like or light caramel-sweet character. Malt flavors and complexity tend to increase with beer color. Low to moderate esters and alcohol flavors. Medium-low hop bitterness provides some support, but the balance is always tilted toward the malt. Darker versions will have more of an initial malty-sweet impression than paler versions, but all should be malty in the palate and finish. The malt flavor lasts into the finish, which is medium-dry to dry, never cloying. Low to no hop flavor (spicy, peppery, or herbal), although paler versions can have slightly higher levels of herbal or spicy hop flavor (which can also come from the yeast). Smooth, welllagered character, even if made with ale yeast. Aftertaste of malt (character appropriate for the color) with some dryness and light alcohol.
