My swill while in the UK... cheap (in the UK) pretty difficult to find in the states... nice white head that disipates quickly, nice hop flavor and nice golden color, not much in terms of the Aroma Department, but nice golden color with a thin head that disipates quickly... In south east michigan I dont know where I can find this stuff, the only place in is in Windsor, On Canada

Pours a nice clear gold color with a nice amount of bubbles and froathy white head. Aroma is sweet malt and nice hop notes, maybe a little saaz. Flavor is pretty watery but also nice and crisp and slightly sweet. Overall, and enjoyable lager.

The skunkiest beer I have ever smelled by far. It literally smelled like bottled skunk. Poured to a large head, lots of lacing. Light, lemony flavor, which is, thankfully, better than the smell. The taste is okay, not nothing I’d buy again. Did I mention it was skunky?

I would not call this a "premium" lager. Lemony carbonated tastes. On draft and bottle in France. Must be the European version of a football beer.

Ummm...my 300th rating is a dosey. Pale golden, small white head, sweet malt aroma with maybe a tad bit of floral hop. Goes down quickly and easily with a fairly standard lager tatse. Mostly sweet with fine carbonation and a thinner mouthfeel. Some bit of hops in the finish, but not much.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Pale golden color with foamy white head. Slight floral taste. Hoppy finish. Medium crispness. Fairly refreshing. Much more flavor than most premium lagers, although not as crisp as most

#25 on the 2006 Europe tour--Can’t believe I went all the way to France to drink this, but what the heck, it was a lovely French afternoon in Grenoble with a view of the Alps. It was pretty much a run of the mill lager. Nothing special, nothing worthwhile, but sitll it was a great afternoon.

Pale yellow, fizzy white head. Corny nose with some hay. Somewhat malty flavour with a little sweetness. Fairly hoppy at the end.

How can a place like France, so close to the Belgium border, create such a concoction so horrible that thirsty nomads in the Saharan desert wouldn’t drink? I mean really. Someone in France make a beer that doesn’t taste like crap. Please. Aroma of grainy mildewy, rotten skunk. A lifeless, golden hue with no bubbles and little head. A watery grave of a mouthfeel, so thin that it’s water like. An unpalatable, malty sweet skunk that is just simply not pleasing at all. This would have been a drainpour had I not paid for this.
