Nice tight white head, very little carbonation, clear gold colour. Lovely crisp hoppy aroma. Dry, hoppy taste without any over the top harsh hop flavours.

Smells like natty, looks like painful pee. Actually tastes better warm. begs the question whether the french are good for, or at, anything?

The bottled version on the shelves in France has more alcohol - 5.9% (the same as the 1664 Fleur de Houblon q.v.). However, it is still quite malty and rather bland. Under-hopped in my view. Bottled, France, December 2003

Cans. This is one of those beers which seems to be available in every UK pub - I know it isn't, but even so that is not a good impression to be under. A very bog-standard draught beer - quite plain, but apparently richly malty, and almost entirely drinkable. Very acceptable session fare, without ever being outstanding.

A very nice, middle-of-the-road lager that pairs nicely with freedom fries. Fizzy head. Lightly golden in color. Slightly sweet, grainy and ashy. Very amicable.

Pours golden, head smaller than I expected. Malt nose, the flavor was better than the aroma led me to expect. I'm not the first to get this out of a beers of the world sampler, I see...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden color, well carbonated, decent head formation. Predominant sweet malt aroma. Smooth and lightly corbonated, sweet from start to finish. Pretty straightforward, very little hop bite. Trendy beer for the masses.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light gold in colour. Aroma of very light hops, with some grass. Very light body, small amount hops as well. The finish was very fast as well. Still a somewhat refreshing beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow, white head, big bubbles. Some malt, some hops, maybe an adjunct or two. Lighter body. Nothing that offensive, but pretty bland.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from a Beers of the World boxed assortment. Poured golden and clear with fizzy carbonation and a foamy white head. Pretty typical lager aroma, sweet malts, adjuncts and hops. Pretty poor flavor, a little sour and skunky. Light body and highly carbonated.
