2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale golden body with bubbly stable white head. Yeasty pilsner aroma with slightly more light malts, which isn’t necessarily good. Taste isn’t very fresh and a bit astringent. Even some alcohol here. I don’t see the point in this Gold. (50cl can from Carrefour in Tours)

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from a Monoprix near Republic in Paris. Pours dark gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is grainy with some hints of grass. Flavor is grainy/bready with too much sugar for a miniscule amount of hop to balance. It’s not sweet, but for me it’s far from dry. Good thing: It’s not one of those fusil oil bombs.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
31st Dec 2010: Another beer I bought in France (in a pack) for my son and his mates over Christmas 2010. I borrowed one to review.
Poured into my ’La Chouffe’ stemmed tulip.
Mid-range to lighter lager golden in colour, thin white head on top.
Almost odourless, hints of grain and hop if you sniff hard enough.
Not a lot to say about the taste really, typical cheap lager/pilsner nothingness. Just a wet liquid with hints of hops and alcohol to keep you going. It did however get a little bitter towards the end of each sip, not that it is a sweet tasting beer to start with.
Just a regular supermarket lager in my eyes and one I’ll not be buying again.
