Skunky, skunky, and skunky. I liked it. The mash has soured a little on this one but if you like central and south american pilsners you will like this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Plain looking amber beer with a malty lager aroma and a lightly bitter flavour with a touch of malt. Overall a plain French lager.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Foamy lingering head. Very highly carbonated. Strong, tangy odor. Straw colored. Unfortunately, it also tastes like straw. The beer has a bit of sweet/zesty flavor when it first hits your mouth, but it quickly dissipates. Only marginally better than the Bootie Lager it stood next too. Wow, Iíve rated two big duds in a row.

Pression - Brasserie des Arenes, Nimes. Clean, crisp, refreshing, inoffensive (mostly), some cheap malt tang and cheap bittering hop extract. Give it a good swirl and it smells of rotten eggs. Phew! And all the flavour vanishes from the beer itself. Interesting that.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2004 To say "Less horrible than I imagined" is to damn with faint praise, I suppose, but this was accpetable. Dark gold, small white head. flowery aroma. Some hop flavors, then it just disappears.

Bottle. I had been eyeing this one in my local Tesco for a while, but new it would be crap, so i stayed away. Well i was right to be scepticle, coz it sucked. Boiled veggies, adjuncty malts, some raw alcohol in the finish, very dull mouthfeel. At least i know iíll never try this again.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: light bronze color, with a nicely speckled off-whitish head atop.
Aroma: not too nice! Sharp, pungent, not ale-like at all, stinks like an American macro, totally unpleasant, wickedly so.
Taste: the palate isnít happy, either..thin-bodied, with an atrociousness unmatched. A grimace overtakes the mouth each time I take a sip. Thereís hints of fruitiness underneath that awfulness, but thereís no redemption following that abominal beginning.
Bad, bad, bad!
Stick to wine and capitulation, France!

(bottle) Light lager yellow with small white head. My wasnít skunked, and didnít taste funny. Mild lager flavor with maybe a hint of hops in the finish.
