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 - ísíalrightí.

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.

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. Iíd 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.

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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2002
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 12ís, Fischer, and Kronenbourg (Why we got French beer, I canít recall) irregardless, the Kronenbourg blew it away. Also had this stuff on other occasions. Coppery-bitter taste, nothing great, a darkish lager.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 14, 2002
This stuff is terrible. The bizarre, tart aftertaste surprised me at first drink, but sorta sickened me by the third or fourth. I tried another one the next day, just to see...but it was still awful. Donít be curious with this one.

Nice carbonation and initial smell, but after that itís roadkill city. Ok, it might be good to quench my thirst on a hot day but otherwise itís Pepe LePew. One of the skunkiest beers I have tasted to date. True, most of the skunk was in the first few sips but still, I do not want this one again.

Garden variety lager. Sweet, not hoppy. Light carbonation. Slightly stinky yeast. If this is the zenith of French brewing, then itís no surprise they turned their attention to wine.
