UPDATED: MAR 31, 2006 On Tap: Not a bad brew. I’ve had this really skunky from a bottle before, and I’ve got friends who say its their favorite beer, who knows? I think its a little malty sweet with some hops in there. When its nod gone bad its a pretty tasty lager. Smooth and sweeter than most other lagers.

Bottle: Golden colour, big rocky white head; grassy, kind of perfumed nose (detergents ?); slightly malty start, thin bodied, nearly watery, a bit sticky; shy bitter aftertaste. A second one’s not necessary..........!

Godforsaken green bottle. Fading, loose, sudsy white head. Clear, bright straw body with moderate carbonation. After the initial skunk cloud dissipated, a hay-like aroma with citrus and light toasty, buttery notes was revealed. Lightly sweet with low bitterness and an odd grainy tartness in the finish, as if that makes sense. A basic lager that’s a little on the offensive side.

On tap somewhere in France. Fairly offensive pissy lager. Basically the Miller of France.

Smelled of skunks. Clear, golden & overly carbonated. Sad to say, a drain pour.

On tap. Small, creamy-white head lasted and laced well. Golden colour, quite effervescent. No aroma that I could discern. Faint malt in the taste, though that might have been wishful thinking. Slight bitterness was not disagreeable. This isn’t bad if you’re thirsty.

[tallboy can] Bright, dark yellow (like a dehydrated person’s pee) with a fizzy, white head that formed a thick cover. Considerable noble hops aroma with some crisp malt and a tiny bit of skunk. Thought the aroma was pretty weak, overall. Gentle hops flavour and crisp malt with a very tiny bit of bitterness and a very tiny bit of sweetness. Really there was only a very tiny bit of anything in this watery drink, unoffensive though it was. Light body, medium carbonation and a clean finish.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 (Bottled) Clear golden with a smallish head. Corny-grainy-malty aroma with some hay-grassy hops. Corny-rice-malty, reasonably grassy-hoppy (but somewhat harshly so), slightly buttery. Some sourish hints, maybe because of the wheat used. Quite light-bodied, but not watery palate with high and slightly fizzy carbonation. A somewhat drinkable, asian-style pale lager. (Bottled, rated 6.3.2005, was 4-2-4-2-8=2.0) Pale golden color with a medium, vanishing head. Quite grassy nose with some buttery hints. Sweetish and acidic, slightly buttery, malty flavor with a tiny hint of honey. Lingering, fruity-hoppy finish. Light-bodied, foamy-carbonated palate. A reasonably hoppy, sweetish and smooth but foamy lager. Not a bad lager, and doesn’t have any serious faults - but still quite lightweight flavor- and palatewise.

Nice, rich golden color, yet still one of the most sparkling clear beers I’ve ever seen. Nice, lively shoulders of pooling foam. Aroma is biscuity and graham-like with a slightly stale, mildly spicy hoppiness and a touch of thiol. Came across rather malty but a bit thin in the flavor. Little bitterness. Slightly doughy. Touch of metallic. Finishes surprisingly dry for the initial sweetness. Pretty much par for the course.

Enjoyed in the Swiss Alps from the bottle. Pours a beautiful pale gold with a head that seems to last. Nice hoppy flavor offset by a dull malt that hints at sweetness. Loved it.
