Oh, Reading Again

Thought I’d give some of the detail that caught my eye on the French-Style Bière de Garde:

Golden to deep copper or even light brown in color these beers offer a variety of character, though they are generally characterized by a toasted malt aroma, slight malt sweetness in flavor and a medium level of hop bitterness, falvor and aroma. Warm ale fermentation creates a balanced fruitiness and complexity of alcohol character often quite evident. Commercially, this type of beer is almost always bottle conditioned, creating a pleasing and soft yeast character.

Also, for those linguistically minded (or those interested in book manufacturing, general psychology, or the issues faced during human-computer interaction), The Complete Joy of Home Brewing (3rd Edition) has an accent mistake in the relevant row on pp. 154-155. It is bière, not biére. In the earlier description of the style, they have it correct, of course.
