2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Obtained from a Casino Supermarket on the South of France, the 50cl can clearly stated it was brewed for this Supermarket chain and was 7%ABV.
Opened during a ’heavy can tasting evening’ in my mates holiday villa on 17th Sep 2013: we shared each can (but still woke up hung-over).
Looked fine in our tumblers, golden, clean and clear with a thin white covering on each glass.
The nose had hints of sweet pale malts and other grains, as did the taste, this is a semi-sweet brew with enough alcohol to cut through what flavour there was in the beer.
A cheap supermarket beer (but not cheap in the South of France) in every way. Against Amsterdam Navigator, Rince Cochon and Kronenbourg 7.2 it came in second to last, the Navigator being far too sweet for it’s own good.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Modest head and dark gold body, aroma of plywood and stale bread. Flavour is caramel and sugar followed by a sweet finish. Yet the alcohol is well hidden, allowing wastedness in record time. Extra points for this, but nothing else!

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From our "downstairs cupboard", a Spar below our apartment in Nice. I had to get a second can of this because it is cheap and tasty. A typical strong lager - malty sweet, and it gets you stoned. Fedw off-flavours. Slips down soft and sweet. If you like alcoholic sugar, you’ll love this.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a bright golden amber color, head lasted about 20 seconds. No lacing to speak of. Aromas of spice, light grains, and a touch of something fruity. Flavor is medicinal, sweet, and sort of vegatal. Not impressed with this offering.
