For a French Brew this was a surprise. It was rather a good beer. Nice head and lacing though it did dissappait in a short while. Carobonation was pretty good and flavor even though not fantastic was actually good. Definitely worth a try

Fischer La Belle Alsace 4.5%.....
Bright yellow, fizzy with perfumy and grassy nose. Not skunky at all in the green bottle! Light and grassy tasting, dry at the end. Not much here to judge, but way better than expected.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt, slighly wooded nose, nice bottle with swing lid. Usual pils/lager appearance with a decent white head. Malty flavour with a slightly creamy texture, and a hopped medium dry finish.

Hmm...not very good at all, really. A fairly nasty tasting lager...not pleasant at all like many superior lagers.

Nothing too "belle" about this one. Very bland, uner-hopped and with a slight caramel and wet carboard flavour. I don't thing its because its too old or oxidised because I've had it on several occasions over the years with similar results.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tangy aroma bordering on skunky or cheesy. Slight floral hops. Weak. Medium golden yellow clear. Foamy white head subsided quickly to wispy lacing head. High fizziness and light-medium watery body. Very tart - sort of citrusy but acidic too. Light hops flavor and almost no sweetness. Finish is a light bitter. Has an herbal spicy bitterness or off taste. Wouldn't have again.

Should probably give two ratings, one with spicy food, one without. Without, it's bland, some malty sweetness with a bit of skunk/sourness at the end. With spicy food, improved dramatically, sweetness cuts the thai peppers nicely, malts becomes sticker and chewier, palate is noticeably more pleasant. Consider the ratings to be splitting the difference.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
In the France section of Epcot. Pours a pale orangish-yellow with a medium thin and foamy off-white head. Aroma was interesting, it was mostly maly but there was some kind of fruit I could not place as well. Flavor consisted of light malt and hops with a touch of citrus. Worth checking out if you are stuck at Disney and looking for something different, but otherwise this is nothing special.

A nice strong lager, far better than the average malt liquor that are invading continental Europe.
