2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally rated October 2005. Sampled from their green 330mL bottle, brought back by my girlfriend from her European trip. Best before date is 01/10/06. Pours a golden-blonde colour with a fizzy white medium head. Retention is low and some minimal lace is left, here and there. Nice light tiny bubble carbonation. Skunk nose... of course, with some grainy malt, but very mild. The taste is quite light, but yet, refreshing. Some hop, but not too bitter. Some sweetness, but not much. Grain comes out in the aftertaste. No offensive metallic or other garbage in the taste. Just a decent refreshing pilsner-style lager (alternative to Heineken, but lighter tasting).

the carbonation makes the beer, otherwise avrage. light malt and a touch of hops round out the flavor. the basque seem to do most things better than beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
OK, although some don’t like the fact I found it amber, the fact is I had it in Bilbao, just in front of the Cathedral. The flavour was quite malty, if memory doens’t fails me after more than one year and a half. Quite foamy, the bar tender was from the Ecuador, and a Spanish lady tried to pay him with MExican pesos, which look like Euros in smaller size. I had a chorizo tapa with it. It’s not the only "gold" beer that looks amber, I’m sorry if I don’t call blonde a beer that looks like earwax.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Well-carbonated to lightly yellow tinted good dense head; slightly orange tinted golden beer. Greenery, faint citrus and toasted aroma’s; old, soggy bread. Again citrus, faint grassy with pale malts finish, even a touch of honey. Light bodied, but not empty; quite carbonated feel. Middle-of-the-road pilsner, litte citrus touch is welcome.

clear amber-orange colour, no foam; the aroma is spicy with notes of strawberry marmelade, rather full-bodied and sweet, moderate carbonation, more red fruits in the finish - interesting and quite tasty

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Brueghal, Toulouse. Rather plain yellow Lager. Good lacing and a malty, biscuit aroma. Very fizzy, and flavoured like dry, salty bread. Uninspiring.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2007 Bottled. Golden colour, creamy head. Grassy aroma. Dry with rounded buttery maltiness. Fairly well hopped, good bitterness. A solid, pilsnerish lager.
