500 ml can. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that diminishes to a thin head. Aroma of grainy malt and mild spicy hops. Flavor of grainy malt, adjuncts with mild spicy hops, itís not dry and thereís no hops bitterness. The body is light to medium and the carbonation is lively, the carbonation is what mostly defines the mouthfeel. On a positive side there are no flaws in this beer, on the negative side itís a highly carbonated bland beer.

Sampled at Broudyís Beerfesst Jacksonville, FL 9/03/05. Pale and watery, not a lot of flavor. Nothing offensive and not bad, but not good either. Too light.

A quite ordinary but decent french blond beer. It has a nice sparkling golden clear colour, with a limited head. Soft and smooth light bitter flavor with vegetal aromas that donít last long. A metallic aftertaste that isnít really special actually. Itís quite an OK day to day beer, but nothing great either. Iíd drink it after a tiring warm day of physical work or perhaps along a spicy ham.

DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2005
Bottled. Fairly average, reasonably drinkable lager but not at all memorable. Goden yellow/orange, tasty citrus flavour at first, getting a bit carboardy by the end of the glass.

mmmbeer1979 (5) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2005 does not count
Golden yellow. Poured from the bottle with a thin and quickly retiring head. Hoppy aroma and quite sweet tasting however its quite watery with no fullness. Pretty average lager all round.

Pale yellow. Weak in flavor and thin head. Not enough hop bitterness for me, but a good refreshing lager nonetheless.

DerWeg (1564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2005 Yep a golden yellow poured from the can... Light hops with some bitterness, I do agree. Some crisp malt presence to quench the dayís heat. This beer has corn in it besides malt but itís reasonably good tasting without corn-worty artefacts - I feel it is well made macro suds. One thing is the carbonation is slightly sharp and the aftertaste not so clean, a tinge metallic perhaps. But leagues better than Becks, for sure. Iím surprised. But if I were drinking this in France Iíd have a peristent vague uneasy sense I could better occupy my taste buds in said evirons. Could be worse but nothing memorable.

Poured a golden yellow. Light hops with some bitterness. Refreshing beer to drink on a hot day in southern France.

Nice about the bottle is that you can open it with your hand, but the beer inside is not that special.
