1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pression at La Taverne Karlsbrau, Republique, Paris. Pale gold with white head, heavily carbonated. Pongy aroma with sulpher notes, cardboardy, thin and tinny, pretty bad and very expensive.

Canned. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is sweet malts, hops and quite much metallic hints. Flavour is sweet malts, cardboard, saltwater along with some grassy hops and notes of mild metallicness. A very basic "bulkbrew".

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Minimal ocean-foam, white head disintegrates in under a half minute. After that, er, premature performance, I’m left with a medium gold hued beer. Very light malt, some dough and straw are the first aromatic impressions. Underneath there’s just a bit of grassy hops. The flavour is light, but sweet overall, with a honeyed feel to it. The profile is quite clean, but underpowered and singular. At the finish there is a barely detectable bitterness. Carbonation is brisk and adds some life to the beer--works well with the lighter body. The texture has a fair amount of stickiness to it, given the lightness of the beer overall. It’s bland, but not riddled with faults. With just a little more hops and malt it could manage to be average. 50cl, Leffe goblet, 08/08.

Had this on 06-01-07 on draft in a goblet. Cafe Castelvecchia on the Piazza del Signoria in Florence...oh, I’m rating a BEER! That’s right! Probably the least remarkable of the beers I had whilst in Europe. Basic everything. More like a bland pale lager than anything resembling the words "classic" or "German".

Very much like Karlsberg Ur-pils, a mediocre german pilsener, perhaps somewhat less bitter.
