1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Flat pilsneresque smell and taste. Just a forgettable offering--half of which I used to cook my brats.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clean smell; sharp and crisp mouthfeel - up front. Bland flavor. Very carbonated with a hint of tartness... and maybe even a pinch of apple. Aftertaste was very unappealing: kind of oily with a bitter carbonation. Leaves the mouth with a watery sensation. There was a little sweetness detected, but nothing to write home about. Maybe ok with food, but it kinda sucks all by itself.

A very light lager, slightly skunky. Blond hue, no head. Light lager aftertaste.

A fantastic 65cl bottle. A nice sweet smell, with pleanty of carbonation and a frothy head. Good golden colour. Sweet tasting, with a slightly dry palate. To coin a phrase - ’s’alright’.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ehhh. Its very plain and simple. Watery golden color and a decen head. The aroma is somewhat hoppy, but not overly appealing. The taste is rather bland, it has a little sweet character going for it that makes it ok, but its nothing special. The bottle is very cool however. Its hard to respect the French, but you have to hand it to them for making this bottle top. Bravo, Pierre.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This green-bottled, bottom-fermented lager from France has been brewed since 1821 (180 years!). It pours with a deep gold color, moderate amounts of carbonation, and produces a large, foamy white-colored head. This is a fairly smooth, lightly hopped beer that would be fine to serve with most any kind of sandwich or light meal. I’d call it a fine lunch beer -- but beyond that, there is not much to say in its favor. All in all, a pretty average lager that finishes with an almost soapy flavor. Not a favorite beer of mine, but it was interesting to try.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow. Sweetish, not much flavour, except perhaps some weird adjunct. A sub-standard lager, also for being only 2.8%.

I think the French brew this crap in order to discourage the Germans from ever invading them again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice clear bright gold, generous head and fair lace. Malt nose, start is malt sweet, the middle thin, the finish dry, light, mild hop presence. Moderate carbonation, a typical lager, drinkable, but offers little to me.

Had this while driving from Ohio to Wisconsin on a lost weekend. Not a great beer, we got two 12’s, Fischer, and Kronenbourg (Why we got French beer, I can’t recall) irregardless, the Kronenbourg blew it away. Also had this stuff on other occasions. Coppery-bitter taste, nothing great, a darkish lager.
