Skunk, sour, rotten apple, This cant be beer? It taste so bad that i could not drink it. Worst beer ever. It taste like rotten champagne mixed with beer. Try it and you will hate beer the rest of your life.

It does pour pretty however, the taste is basically if you put a sprite into a Budweiser. It does not have to best smell either.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Pour is an attractive blond with a thin head and damn fine lacing. Smell is skunk, rotten grain, and lots of yeast. Taste is the same, super rotten...was my bottle skunked by sunlight???

Clear straw, almost golden color, with average activity. White 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some good legs. Faint sweet grains and citrus smell, with a hint of metal. Flavors of fresh grains, lemon, lime, and herbal spices. Strong syrupy taste of bread, biscuits, and slightly grassy. Slick light body with prickly carbonation. Well balanced finish, ending with slightly dry wine like sweet grainy feel and pleasant tongue numbing noble spices. Overall a good craft offering decent flavors, good freshness, and a nice warming finish. Although a little unbalanced being too syrupy.

A consommer comme chacun sait uniquement en cas de besoin primaire d’hydratation. Ne jamais conserver nulle part.

Odeur légére d’alcool, amertume quasi inexistante, une légère lueur de pomme en bouche, finale séche laissant un goût assez fade en bouche. Pas exceptionnel mais se laisse boire.

Aus der Flasche im Trois Minutes in der Torstr., Berlin. Orang-gelb-golden, wenig Schaum. Geruch nach Malz, süßlich. Geschmack: süßlich, metallisch, bitter werdend.Im Hintergrund etwas leicht fruchtiges, vielleicht Birne

Pours a light golden color. Pretty thick white head. Okay retention, good lacing. Very clear. Pretty well carbonated.

Aroma is the typical Euro lager smell. Bready, fresh. Light grassy and floral hops. Light, and welcoming.

Taste is quite refreshing. Fresh, clean. Bready and slightly hoppy.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Slightly dry and poppy. I say poppy because typically, I might say crisp,but it’s not quite that. It has a pop. Weird, yeah, but it’s the best I can come up with.

Overall, it’s good. Perhaps better than the similar Euro lagers. Nothing great, but it is quite good. I would recommend it, and I would buy it again.

Na wenn ich schonmal in Frankreich bin.. Heller süßer, sehr plörriger Antrunk. Wässrig, metallern, pappig. Langer modriger Nachgeschmack. Bah! 9/2/3/2/7/2

16oz can given to me. Smells and tastes pretty much the same... White bread, honey, mild grass. Off balance to the sweet side. Macro premium lagers get a bad rap on here, but there are many so called craft brews that I have found far more objectionable than this.
