Sample from bottle at Copenhagen Beer Festival, as Jade Bière Blonde. I did not take note of the brewery, but thought it was Belgian - but might well be mistaken. The label looked different, though. I hope I’m rating the the right beer. Pale golden colour. This is an ordinary pilsener / pale lager with a little malts in aroma and flavour, and a slight acidity in the finish. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Rating #506, bottle from France. Thanks to Vivi and Flemming

This is a deep golden beer with a nice head. Aroma is ascorbic acid, sharp hops, a bit alcohol and a touch of caramel. Flavor is almost the same. Not so obvious caramel, though, but more alcohol and a mild bitter finish. Easy to drink with it’s soft, light palate. A real festival beer to be drinked in great amounts.

SilkTork (5252) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2010
Big swing-top bottle from MonoPrix, Paris. Organic lager. Light and drinkable, but soon turns cereal flavoured and ugly. Mostly flavourless. France’s first organic beer. Big deal.

Lager like in appearnece. Not very good nose - bad things. The taste is also bad with acidity and sulphurous waste. I give up on trying finding an organic beer that is not just marketing.

Vaiz (3523) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2010
Looking at a fading sunset in the French hills near the côte d’azur, I opened this brew bought at a local supermarket. Except for the thick foamy white head that leaves lacing, this seems to be just an ordinary lager. A little more rough and some interesting sweetness in the flavor. Quite watery finish though and nothing much in the aroma either. Ah well, it’s not that bad, just a bit boring. Will finish my bottle though.

KyotoLefty (6635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Light blonde color, clear, low, fine, foamy head. Sweet,malty, buttery aroma, fruits, esp. citrus, honey. A rather unpleasant aroma, weird, with malt vinegar and sweat. Sweet, malty aroma, estery fruit, a touch of orange, honey. There is a good bit of bitter hop and a slight sour tang in the finish. Should be colder…not very good..
