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.

Solid pilsener head, bright yellow body. Aroma heavy on cereals, some hops. Taste is a nice smooth hops flavour and a tart and dry finish. Very good in the way of pilseners.

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.

harrisoni (13598) - 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.

BeerSkull (1286) - SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2012
(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"!

JorisPPattyn (7885) - 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.

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.
