Fischer Tradition is a smooth, complex beer which is fruity and has some flowery undertones. Savour it as an aperatif or with cold meats, cheese and choucroute.

Pours clear deep gold with white bubbly head that has some staying power. Highly carbonated. Grassy aroma with malty undertones. Very malty flavour. Pretty basic lager.

It says on the label "Biere Blonde Speciale". I donít think so. Not very special at all. Apart from a bit more of an alcohol whack, this is pretty much standard stuff. Itís actually a rather attractive bright golden colour with soft, but insistent, carbonation and a small, tenacious head. But the aroma is very dull. I donít know whether this is an all malt brew, but the aroma certainly suggested corn. Otherwise, its stagnant malt and a delightful underlying hint of vomit. Better on the palate. Clean enough but thereís not much hop character until a rather sudden bite on the finish, that hangs around for a while afterwards. But thatís a bit late in the day and compromised by an underlying sweetness that starts early and continues throughout. So the final effect is more bittersweet than crisp. A bit better than your standard swill, but not much. 650ml bottle from Tesco. At least the swing top bottle will come in handy.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 65cl. Pale yellow. Big head settles down to a thin sticky spider web-like foam. Rough hops and malt sweetness. Like a weak Pilsener. Not great and not worth $5 but better than a large number of Pale Lagers sold here.

Bottle, 66cl. I must confess: i bought this beer only because of the bottle. It seemed almost like a old whisky but... eyes can deceive you! Pale yellow colour with a nice sized head. The aroma reminds something like malt, metal and hops(?). Nothing very strong and nothing very good. The flavour is very watery and poor. A deception.... A beautiful package with a not so beautiful interior. Just for hot sunny days and even then....

Well, its better than the amber, which does not say much I know. Iím not convinced yet that French and beer go together.

12oz bottle: Sparkles with a gold color and had a decent sized head that is a white soft pillow. The aroma was sort of like a apple cider and was actually quite nice for being a pale lager. However, the flavor was a disgusting sour and dull combination of malt and somewhat bittering hops. Had a strong metal in the aftertaste and also has a chlorine chemical taste too. Horibble stuff and i hope this beer isnít one of Franceís most popular beers because then i would think of the French as even more pathetic than i already do.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2005 On tap at Cafe de Royalty, Montpellier. I believe this is the one I sampled - the sign over the door said Fischer, the tap said Alsace and the glass said Pecheur, which it definitely wasnít. The one what I drunk were a Lager. Very clean Lager mind, with a even a sharp (hint of licorice) quality. Very quenching and repays with enough flavour to go along with the refreshment. Enjoyed this is in the circumstances.

Paris - Yellow, medium sized head. Wheat in the nose and in the taste. There is something I canít quite place here, very strange aftertaste.
