25 cl bottle, Paris, France via Monoprix. Medium gold, thin head. Faint spice aroma, some honey, fairly carbonated with a spicy finish. Better than a standard French lager but, perhaps not worth the premium.

650 ml flip top bottle. Pale straw gold color topped by a large bubbly white head. Grainy malt nose has hints of hay and lemon peel. Soft fruity malt palate is thin to the taste. Some citrus hops, but very little. Light and refreshing, with a brief dry finish.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle, 33cl. A lightly unclear, golden orange beer with a small, white head. Quite butterscotchy aroma, with caramel, fruityness and some notes of orange. A little caramel in the flavor, a touch of butterscotch, and mostly generic fruityness and also some citrus. Some bitterness towards the end. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. A drinkable one, getting used to the butterscotch. 120804

Malty, sweetish lager. Cleaner, more malty taste than your average big brand lager.

Grzesiek79 (3293) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 18, 2012
Przeciętne piwo jasne, lager typowy choć niby ciut lepszy powinien być z racji organicznej. Niestety to się nie wyczuwa w smaku jak i aromacie. Przerost formy nad treścią.
