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.

Ingevara (867) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2005
Golden yellow, small, white head, high carbonation. Very little malt, some hops. No firmness. Good for a thirsty south european. Dull.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Translucent yellow / gold in color with a creamy white head that’s now backed off and left some nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is standing laundry water, cotton, Fabreeze and hair detangler. Sweet, sour and easy going on the palate. Somewhat of a flavorful pale lager. Strong sourdough impressions met with a signature lemony-citric edge. Doesn’t progress to the lager twang (characteristic of the style), but it doesn’t impress much either.

larsniclas (6243) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden, large white head. Sweetish and with lot of vegetabele-notes. Cereal and grassy flavour with too much carbonation.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 Pours light golden with a dense white head that is mostly receding. Aroma of grassy herbal hops with some corn and DMS. Taste is a bit grassy and bitter with some adjunct maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin with lively, spritzy carbonation. This beer is very bad when skunked. Try to find fresh samples if possible.

Definite grassy hops in the nose. Some hay and cereal malts also. Sparkling golden appearance as expected. The flavor is bitter and a little on the earthy side which is a nice change. Malts are sweet and bread like. Pretty good example of the lager style. If you like lagers you will like this beer, otherwise you will not. Overall pretty typical but not bad. This is a good beer to have with a meal.

Wow, this proves that the French CAN be dull!! Golden yellow, poor head, no lace, no aroma to speak of, and a palate that leaves you searching for... something, anything to talk about. No kidding, I really feel that this has even less character than mass-produced below-average stuff than Canada’s Labatt’s and Australia’s Emu Bitter. Not bad, just featureless.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) French version at 5,9% ABV. A truly French classic, remember having this back in the 80’s while visiting my French girlfriend. Oh, sweet memories...
Premium strong lager. Beautiful fully golden colour with a decent head. Well balanced between malts and hops. Good quality lager. 170403

(Bottle 25 cl) Belgian version brewed by Alken-Maas. Pale golden, limited head and unfortunately also limited flavours. Sweet malt and a faint idea of hops. Not bad just very feeble. Typical bland "Premium" lager. 4/2//3/2/8=1,9 020799

Had it in a slightly warm can at a firemans ball on bastille day. i didnt have a glass but i can imagine what it looks like. Aroma is slightly hoppy and weak. Flavor is prety much the same, a slightly hoppier, but less smooth version of Bud. Nothing complements a frenchman covering Elvis songs better.
