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.

Light in the mouth, smells good, refreshing, typical of a beer you want to have on a hot sunny day. Fine bubbles.

Pours a hazy light orange. Aroma is citrus and yeasty. Taste is a light fruity tartness.

Meh. Thin flavor, weak head. Grassy like most French beers. Little malt or hops. The froggys just can’t make a good brew IMHO. Bottle @ a cafe in Paris.

Very very citric taste, light color with almost no lasting foam. At 8€ in Hyatt Charles de Gaule it is absolutely not worth it. I can't see a potential good circumstance for this beer. Not a good one!

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)

Ambree a la belle carbo et au col genereux. Des aromes de vinaigre et de fruits rouge. Pointe d’acidite sur le final. Pas vraiment mon truc...

rand (1280) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Bouteille 33 cl de la Cave du Haut Jura - St-Laurent-en-Grandvaux (F). Blonde ambrée à mousse blanche moyenne un peu collante, pétillement actif. Nez de malt, houblon floral, céréales. La bouche est douce et suave, relevée d’amertume de Saaz, notes de pain, herbes. Bon volume et amertume itou.

JorisPPattyn (7886) - 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.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
Bottled at Byn, Stockholm. Deep golden, rich firm head. Distint oily’ tea-like saaz aroma. Mid sweet withlight-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Gentle butter and bitter orange flavour. Mid bitter finish.

Bottle. Hazy orange with a thin head. Aroma is grain and citrus. Fruity flavour, thin grainy malt with a long citrus bitterness
