Has a yellow color with little carbonation and a sweet malted smell. Taste is lightly malted and finishes with a lightly skunked/hop bitterness. Overall this isn't as bad as regular Heineken, but still not that good.

Wow, I never thought I'd cross another Fischer beer, but a friend brought one over and dared me to try it. Drinking this beer is like going to the cow trough, dumping a bag of freshly mowed grass into it, plunking my head down into it, and taking a swig. It smells like something burnt, maybe some vegetables left on the stove on high for several hours. Taste of skunky weeds is very strong in this beer. Nasty, nasty, nasty. No more French beer for me. Sick.

If they are trying to be like Grolsch ,they are not. Light hop flavor with no aroma. Bland, uninspiring body. Not even worthy to attach the moniker "freedom".

I had this from a green bottle. The best thing about this beer were the indents in the bottle. Fun to grip it. But too bad it's not fun to drink. The aroma killed the whole experience for me.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 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. An impulse buy at the store - this was a big disappointment. Tecate is better than this. Hell, so is Bud Light. Gah!

For a French Brew this was a surprise. It was rather a good beer. Nice head and lacing though it did dissappait in a short while. Carobonation was pretty good and flavor even though not fantastic was actually good. Definitely worth a try

Fischer La Belle Alsace 4.5%.....
Bright yellow, fizzy with perfumy and grassy nose. Not skunky at all in the green bottle! Light and grassy tasting, dry at the end. Not much here to judge, but way better than expected.

Malt, slighly wooded nose, nice bottle with swing lid. Usual pils/lager appearance with a decent white head. Malty flavour with a slightly creamy texture, and a hopped medium dry finish.

Hmm...not very good at all, really. A fairly nasty tasting lager...not pleasant at all like many superior lagers.

Nothing too "belle" about this one. Very bland, uner-hopped and with a slight caramel and wet carboard flavour. I don't thing its because its too old or oxidised because I've had it on several occasions over the years with similar results.
