0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The colour is extremely light, but the head is acceptable. There is almost no aroma. All you can sense is a weak smell of urine. The taste is very weak and pissy as well (I and my friends Mads and Martin discussed the possibility that the penis of the small French boy on the bottle would fit in the bottle opening). Luckily there is no aftertaste at all. If it wasn’t for the bottle this beer would not be drunken by anyone. France + Beer = PISS!!!

Fizzy, disappointing. Not really worth typing about. I used to like this beer....once.

this was surprisingly nice. it was very bubbly, light, and had a very clean/dry finish. could easily drink a few of these by the swimming pool. i wonder if it’s easily skunked by the green bottle...

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.

Pale yellow. Sweetish, not much flavour, except perhaps some weird adjunct. A sub-standard lager, also for being only 2.8%.
