A bottled pale lager intended as an historic copy of a Parisian beer brand from 1890 - contract brewed by Nymburk brewery in the Czech Republic.
Czech breweries are the only ones in Europe to respect the traditional brewing methods. Therefore, to match the original recipe of the Gallia 1890, it is now brewed in Czech Republic, in a brewery that respects the characteristics of the Gallia of the past.

33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Gold orange with lasting white head. Characterful yeasty aroma. Almost tart lemon in mouth, some sherbert. Tasty blond beer. Wow a lot more interesting than I was expecting. Maybe a bit too yeasty.

Not bad, nice colour and short head. Tastes of toasted cereal (Weetabix?) with medium body, and long hoppy finish.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of malt and grassy hops. The taste is a bit thin but not watery, and it has a nice hop bitterness. A good beer with some "Pilsner-character"!

kevinsenn (1057) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Clear pale yellow with an abundance of large bubbles. Nice crisp hoppy pilsner aroma. Sweet taste up front, leading into a slight hoppy bitterness, some turpentine, and a little skunkiness. Medium-bodied.

Bouteille from Terres de Bières. Clear deep golden colour, large white head. Malty base, bitter-sweet character, good hoppy finish. Quite Czech in its overall character.

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
330ml bottle from Monoprix, Marseille. Decent pale lager. Chewy malt, and a spanking of hops. A pleasant drink served cool from the fridge. It tastes like a Czech lager because that’s what it is. There is an interesting story regarding the history of the Parisian "Gallia" beer brand, which this is supposed to replicate - though it is unlikely the original beer tasted like this.

hawthorne00 (2399) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottle. Gold with a fast-fading white head. Grainy aroma with some earth and spice. Quite dry despite balance leaning towards grainy malt. Mildly spicy bitter finish lingers. Decent hops, rather bland malt.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Spicy and malty nose. Surprisingly dry and hoppy. Not bad.
