750 ml bottle. From France. Courtesy of Brandman. Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sweet almondy malty aroma. Flavour is also quite sweet with almond, and malt. Rather unpleasant. No good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.

AirForceHops (3515) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft @ Novare Res. Pale yellow color with thick full head, good retention in the Tulip. Light malty nose. Flavor is mild yeast providing a light fruit. I also get a light grain. Lighter in body with a short finish. Very plain and simple. Drinkable but I wasn’t craving another glass.

shrubber85 (7949) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Corked bottle. Light malt and musty hay hops. Clear golden color with giant off white head. Very light malt and moderately bitter grass hops flavor. Body on the light side. Like what’s here, just wish there was more of it.

larsga (6321) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Big offwhite coarseish head. Deep yellow body with carbonation. Floral milky aroma with fruity notes. Dry floral peppery mealy taste with fruity notes. Light body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry floral peppery fruity aftertaste with mealy grassy light toffee notes. Nice and drinkable, with some character. (0.75l bottle, Auchain, Illkirch, Strasbourg.)

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2010
A golden ale with a thin white head. Aroma of red licorice, malt, some orange peels. In mouth, a sweet cloying malt, rather light bodied, some light orange, harsh alcohol. Not very good. 1.89 euro for a 750 mL bottle at Galeries Gourmandes (Auchan) in l’Atrium du Palais des Congrès.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2010
Corked bottle from Auchan, Quatre Temps, La Défense, Paris
Blond color. Unoffensive Ale (?), poor aroma (corn), poor flavor in the front, but strangely there is a late fruity touch (Ale yeast), and even very light hop burp. Drinkable; well, in France.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2010
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a fluffy white foam. Moderately sweet and grainy malty aroma with a tinge of biscuits and marzipan, accompanied by traces of flowery hops. Moderately sweet and faint bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly grainy and subtle fruity taste with light floral notes; medium-dry mildly grainy and shy fruity finish. A bit flat but drinkable brew. 02.XII.09
