A pale coloured lager with a little but not much going for it.The head dissapeared fairly quickly after pouring leaving a run of the mill Euro fizz.How can a 6 per cent beer be so average?

my friends first comment when smelling the beer: "oh wow it smells like piss". somehow France has perfected champagne, dedicating years to anally mature grape juice in a fricken cave, but cant be bothered with giving even 30% to making a beer that doesnt remind me of chewing on packaging styrofoam and wheatgerm.

You remember, back in the eighties, when your mom, your aunt, and your grandmother would go out and get their hair permed? Yeah...the house smelled of cat piss for days. Well, imagine that scheisse being rung out of their hair into a bottle. There ya have it. Thanks France, for just one more imported blessing. Sike!

Steer clear this. Aroma is foul, rank. Taste? Wtf, mate? Did they put onions in here? Yowser! The palate? Oh man. Oh no. Oh no, not a whole sick's pack, oh no. Stinky Frenchmen.

Draught. Minimal aroma with faint malt and maybe some hops. Bland and fizzy with a touch of bitterness in the finish. You could almost be drinking fizzy mineral water if it werent for the colour and a semblance of flavour which quickly keels over.

This reminded me of a lot of American Standards. In fact, it tasted like Budweiser...yuck. It was pale yellow and had little head. I could not finish this one.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Green bottle. I've got a bad feeling about this one. Clear yellow lager with a medium-sized, fizzy, white head. The aroma is lightly soapy with hints of butterscotch and lemon. The flavor is almost identical to seltzer water... no body, dry palate. Crisp, clean finish. Not offensive, but not at all good.

Paid $1.59 for a 12-oz single. This was one of those beers I bought specifically for the bottle. Beautiful raised glass logo on the front and back. Pour like champagne: light, clearm with a big ol' bubbly head. When it calms down, you see this beer is pale gold, and the head looks like sewer foam (but hey, it actually looks nice). A bit of a stinky smell- not exactly skunked, but has a hint of it. Lots of grass in the nose. Taste is well.. a bit dirty. Kinda funky grass... but whoever yanked that grass, got the roots and forgot to wash the dirt off. Very flat and thin in the mouth. All of the carbonation is in the head, unfortunately. Well, at least I had another beer to try... and one with a very interesting bottle!

Clearish color with a very fizzy, carbonated mouthfeel. Surprisingly little taste.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly.The aroma was Malty and a light fruit tone to it with a decent hop presence.Slightly skunky smelling as well but,then who knows how long GF keeps there stuff on the shelf under bright lights.The flavor was malty and faint fruit with a bitter hop bite coming on.The after taste was not very pleasant sort of a funky hop taste that seemed to linger on the palate for awhile.I guess for a french brew it's nothing special but i'd have to say that bad storage probably plays a big role in how this brew is,it could maybe be better.
