3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from French supermarket. Pours clear golden with a medium persisting white head, good lacing. The smell is strong malty and yeasty, malty and strong hoppy in the mouth, but not very specific. The taste is heavy bitter, medium sweet, with a long bitter aftertaste, the sweetness decreasing faster. The palate is oily, heavy bodied. Strong and rather well balanced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Didn’t really like some of the flavor of this one, alcohol was also way too strong.
