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.

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...

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.

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

Eh porca puttana, un’altra truffetta: servita come di microbirrificio francese al Brewberry. Lager manco cattiva.

SilkTork (5216) - 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.

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

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

pkbites (678) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2014
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.

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)
