In the bottle. Rich golden in color. Solid malty taste with a medium body. Good balance witha little bit of bitter bite. Head somewhat weak. Green bottle probably allows for photosensitivity which explains the skunky comments of others.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2004 The French should learn to fight a war before they brew beer. Absolutely disgusting. Aroma smells of pure skunk. Taste is of skunk, with a little bit of Bleu cheese in the finish. Aftertaste is even of skunk. Absolutely nasty swill. If I drank this stuff, I would also have to eat snails to get the taste out of my mouth. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t the Germans beat the crap out of the French? Great for use as an guaranteed emergency emetic.

500ml can. Soapy whte head sits atop a lifeless golden body. Sweetish aroma (corn?). Weak malt falvours, some bittereness.

a quite dry semi-sweet lager. Nothing spectacular to report here. Hoppy and smooth palate... but disappointing.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2004
Bootle, Paris. A strong beer with a quickly disappearing head. No lacing. It feels strong and malty, abit too strong to my taste, but it is well-balanced and tasty. The bottle is beautifule btw, and it does not feel alcoholi. Not my type, but well-made

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2004
a pale beer that doesn’t taste too pale. whatever that means... however, tastes a bit rusty. best to drink from the bottle, as it is pretty dull when poured in to a glass.

madquacker (1045) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2004
The french should stick to wine and leave the beer to their leidenhauser wearing neighbours. Little head, crappy bottle shape and a nasty metally aftertaste. Cest merde.

GreatDane (101) - Skævinge, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2004
Brings back memories of a perfect holliday in France. Perfect summerbeer, with a little bitterness. Very pale, with a short lasting head

Drinkable, light yellow body, with a light bitter taste. Nothing great, but does bring back some nice memories.

Pretty bland lager. Slightly sweet. Corn in the taste. At least it was not skunky. Drinkable, but not recommendable.
