COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
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.

JorisPPattyn (7877) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2013
Huge, fluffy off-white head over clear coppery-golden beer. Extremely caramelly, even nearly fresh (weak) coffee nose, café noir cookies, going over in fresh, parsley aromatised malts; rainwater. Again caramel; weak tea flavoured with honey or caramelsyrup. Finish is definitely drier, hinting at noble hops, resulting in even some discreet bitternesss. Light body, creamy head, medium carbonation. Interesting as a concept, much less as a beer.

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2012
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.

erickok (3484) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 28, 2013
Mild grassy hop aroma, classic light malt base. Bit characterless but not bad. Taste is even simpler though, again not bad but just very straightforward. Light bitter, light malts, not much hop character left. It’s a very straightforward lager in the end. Apparently they plan to brew in Paris from 2015; but I better hope they also improve the recipe then. (33cl bottle from Bootlegger)
