Can shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, a grainy sweetness, slightly bitter finish. Average to medium body, medium carbonation. Drinkable, but a 50cl can is too much for me, I’m glad this was shared.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
50cl Can: BBD 10/2014. 7% ABV.
On the 28th Nov 13 I had a mini Lager/Pilsner session and this beer I obtained when in the South of France was my forth of the evening.
Poured the usual clean golden colour you’d expect from a European supermarket Lager, the same white un-staying head was also in evidence.
Almost odourless, it did however give off a slightly stale malty aroma with a metallic hint.
The taste was refreshing enough and the body was fairly soft on the palate for a strong Lager. No real taste though, just a bog standard Lager/Pilsner with a mild alcoholic kick.
Not my normal sort of drink, but there was so little choice down in Ste Maxime and I wanted to bring something home with me along with the wife’s wine.

(can, 7%) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of barnyard, floral hops and powdered sugar, quite stale and cardboardy. flavour is mostly the same, with light notes of straw, herbal hops and a light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy, slightly sweet and well carbonated such that it’s not cutting. Very drinkable and refreshing cold. The taste of alcohol is very well masked by the beer: a favourable and rare quality in strong beer.
