2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clean and with some very light grassy hops that are pretty faint. There is some corn and a vague background sweetness along with some grain and a pretty watery aroma that smells pretty cheap overall.
Light, pale straw colour with a thin, white head not more than a couple millimeters tall. This turns to a patchy lacing almost instantly.
Sweet malts and grain make up most of the taste along with a chemical crispness and cheap malts. There is a very faint hop taste too but nothing much.
Clean and crisp with a lot of grain. The body is light and almost watery with a bit of bitterness in there too.
As expected this one wasn’t a great beer at all, it was drinkable but only just really and not one that I enjoyed at all. A very basic and cheap lager, probably not the worst out there but nowhere near acceptable either.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a very pale straw yellow body with a minimal fizzy white head that faded quickly to a wispy film. The nose is actually a bit sweet smelling with some graininess and a very light floral hop note. The flavor is a good bit worse than I was expecting, it’s very bland and full of wet paper and a minimal hoppiness. Not sure if there is corn in here or not, but it tastes like many adjunct laced Pale Lagers that I know do have it. There’s a bit of bitterness on the finish that’s trying to come out, but the wet paper and soggy grain notes beat it back. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation, a bit clingy on the finish from the residual sweetness. This is pretty bad, much worse than i was guessing it would be.

Light golden color with an ample foamy head and a light hoppy aroma. Modestly bitter with a clean crisp finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Epitome of the average, non-offensive beer. Hits right in the middle on all ratings aspects. Not remarkable, and frankly, forgettable. Has little individual character.

Canette de 500ml, robe blonde limpide, presqu’aucune mousse , arôme d’herbes, goût également très herbacé typique d’une lager.

Tapped. Golden lager. Pretty good taste. Easy to drink but very predictable. Some banana notes, some hops... I’ll have it again if there’s nothing else.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours into a pint glass with a nice pillowy head, very pale lager, pilsner would probably better describe it. Light sweet taste, no bitterness our sourness. Thin texture with light body, overall a descent lager, though at that price point, others like Sam Adams or something stronger would be a better deal.

Bon pour un lager pale. Jaune pale, petite mousse. Un arome et goût d’houblon. Bonne finale, facile a boire.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty basic stuff. At least the larger breweries from Europe put out better stuff than the ones in the US. Grainy and malty aroma. Standard light brown color with a foamy head. Light palate with high carbonation. The flavors were kind of bland, mainly malts that left a sour taste in my mouth. It would go well with a burger I guess.
