A lovely beer to surrender at the first hurdle. And then souffle.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, pale yellow colour, small dense head with some lacing. Minimal chemical aroma maybe hallertau?, watery sweet body. Sweet slightly bitter finish. OK lawnmower lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow, with little carbonation or head. Thin in the mouth. A bit of hoppy flavor, and reasonably refreshing.

in tap in france: bottled in the us:
different taste for each. quite non descript lager or average. more malty then your american brews. but a good, easy drinking beer. seems like the euro one might have more alcohol??? go to france and drink it in a cafe on a hot day, youll like it/1

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Narrow green bottle. Beer pours a golden color with minimal carbonation apparent and a fluffy, white head of condensed bubbles, which quickly dissipates leaving a frothy ring. Lace is left in rings about the glass.
Rather dull nose with a touch of floral hops and moldy malts.
Crisp and clean tasting, hops up front followed my a mellowing maltiness. Weak mouthfeel, but reasonably drinkable. Not a great beer, but I can drink it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
mais oui, eet eez zho elee--ghant, zees biere. polished gold-leaf yellow with an alabaster froth of foam. some mild sweet grass aroma with a note of elmer's glue, with wisps of citrus and saaz. even very freshly opened it has a smooth carbonation-- no soda-poppy bristles here. a grainy lightly hopped pils, mildly sweetened lemon, mint and bagette. hiking the streets of strasbourg's vieille ville in the summer, one might enjoy the light, unchallenging refreshment of this brew at a sidewalk cafe´. unless they had a REAL beer available, of course, a belgian or a biere de garde-- but then you'd probably just sit around and get a major buzz on and end up blowing off the rest of the afternoon's sight-seeing. and zhat vood be zhoooo stoo-peed, you ameri-kane embayceel!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber gold. But still pretty pale. Lacey little head. Sudsy soap after 5 minutes. Flat taste. An iota of yeast. Very subtle floral fruit. Watery.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Light yellow, clear, creamy whipped meringue head. Skunky aroma, no surprise. Thanks green glass and dusty long shelftime! Sweetish, very placid body, clean and largely free from such impediments as hops, malt, and flavor, until an unsettling thin metallic bitterness sets in near the end. More proof that French beers not labelled biere de garde need not be purchased from US store shelves.
