From 33cL Bottle. Pours a very light, off yellow color with a tall soapy white head. Aroma reminds me of a mixture of grass, corn starch, and water. Slightly sweet smell with a slight whiff of hops. Mouthfeel is light and sparkling, typical for a pale lager. Grainy, corny flavors with a pleasant kiss of grassy hops for the finish.

Bottled. Pours a light golden color. Light grainy aroma. Some acidity. Grainy flavor. Some maltiness as well. Not bad for a pale lager.

Aroma of rice, corn and (as we backpackers know0 skunk cabbage. Pale gold with a small white head. Very grainy lager taste with a foul note in there.

33cl I got this on my trip to San Diego. It was at Holiday Beverage or something. Bud or Corona it is not, but very close. Very clear yellow, very watery! I guess I’m supposed to be mowing the lawn right now?

Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 22, 2006
Very clear, yellow color with tiny bubbles. Small white head with fair lacing and filming (probably not natural). Strong smell of cooked vegetables--and of the disgusting type like cabbage and beans--, or of cow tongue cooked in a pressure cooker(eeewwww) and rice. Very light body and somewhat chalky aftertaste.

Panzerfaust (591) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head that diminishes rapidly but leaves a little lacing. Not very exciting appearance. Aroma is pretty bad, showing notes of vegetables, rice and slight cereally touches. There are clearly adjuncts in the character as most pale lagers. Little amount of hops. Flavor is slightly bitter, less watery than others from the same style but not good at all. There’s a lot of rice and corn to be found. At least it finishes with a small hoppy accent and it’s not as unclean as other macro pale lagers. It’s just fine as a refreshment. Texture is, obviously watery, no alcohol noticeable at all. Refreshing stuff but quite bad. Drunk just for the exotic origin. Bottle bought in my beloved Easter Island. :P.

This had an average head.Aroma grassy,earthy.color straw.Nice,pleasant taste.I agree with some of the other reviews that I think this is about an average beer.Maybe a little bit better than coors,corona,but pretty close in color and taste.Slight bitterfinish.It’s a decent beer for a party,but not one that I would seek out.I would think you can find a cheaper priced beer that tastes just about like this.What can I say??!!it’s French!!(i’m half french too).

(12oz Bottle. 04/2006). Weak, almost non-existent aroma. Pale, straw. Fruity notes (as if it were fermented at too high a temperature). Relatively dry with a little bitterness and an unpleasant aftertaste.

Sigmund (5695) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2006
500 ml can, bought in France. Pale golden colour, decent head. Weak aroma, some faint fruity and flowery notes. Fairly clean and "neutral" pale lager flavour, which means that there is not much taste, but not too many offensive off-flavours either. Some bitterness in the finish, becomes metallic in the aftertaste. This is swill for the South Pacific heat, not something for beer lovers to search out, unless you want another country in your ratings list.

Canned. Golden colour with white head. aroma is weak. This beer is there not much to say about.
