3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I must be on my own on this one! One of my favourite lagers, almost similar in style to the Alsace Dry Reisling wines of the area.
Not much aroma, with a pale golend appearance. Greta taste on the palate, with a slighly bitter tangy hit on the back of the tongue that lasts for ages.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Highly carbonated, straw-colored lager distinguished by its lack of distinction. Dry, lightly hopped, clean. Very little flavor, but no off flavors, at least.

Thin. It’s got a weird citrus pungency, but otherwise tastes like a very clear macrobrew.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear, straw color, minimal head formation. Sweet grainy aroma. Sweet malty palate, a little sourness, paper-like dryness.

It isn’t that worst beer in the world, but there is nothing at all unique about it. I was not surprised to see that it is brewed by Heineken, because that is exactly what it reminds of, only it has a weird flavor additive that Heineken fortunately does not.

Re rate : Strange taste. Quite hard to rate. French beer are usually worse than this one ....

Off white head with small bead. Slightly tart malt taste, not much else. Maybe a bad bottle

A golden beer with a beutiful head. It has an aroma of yeast and honey. But the flavor is a little arkwark - it starts out like honey and flowers but then turns sour, there is no malt sweetness and no hoppiness and yet some bitter sour lingering. I tried it in Alsace this spring and now back home it’s the same weird beer.

I don’t know if there is a big freshness issue here, but I must have gotten a good bottle. No skunky off flavors, no funny smell, nothing but a pretty good continental lager. Yellow in color with a thin, fizzy head. My bottle had a sweet, clean malt profile. It is not a very complex beer, but it was refreshing. It must be very delicate and subject to damage easily.
