Bottled, 330ml. Hazed Gold colour with tight white head. Not bad at all really, nice gentle spicy flavour with a touch of banana. Sharp with a slight tinny note. Just the thing for a hot afternoon.

Horses can gallop but often canter. This is not a thoroughbred and as such is really just a draughthorse. Wouldn’t pony up for too many of these andsaddle my mates with such a plodder.

This is an improvement. Perhaps it is the alcohol but therre is a much better flavour profile here. Distinctly lager like however, I still found this to be a good beer that tasted like a helles bock to me. Oh well, ain’t no figuring that I suppose.

Bar Le Cristal, Abbeyville, France. Pression. It's been 7 years since we were in Abbeyville - and we managed to find the same corner bar overlooking the main square. This is not an attractive place, but it holds fond memories. The beer has a gold colour with a light lacing foam head. Irn Bru malty flavour with a biting carbonation and a gentle wheaty sweetness. Slightly metallic hop finish. Decent enough apart from the carbonation and the metal.

there's nothing really wrong with this except that it is incredibly boring. french style sweet rockmelon and corn malt with only a trace of generic hops

A regulary "gold" beer. A bit metallic lacks body and complexity. Like a low alc. malt liqouer.

Had this on tap at the brewery in Strasbourg. Nice golden color, basically a better version of Kronenbourg 1664 with a little more taste and a little more alcohol.
