Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2004
Amber gold. But still pretty pale. Lacey little head. Sudsy soap after 5 minutes. Flat taste. An iota of yeast. Very subtle floral fruit. Watery.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Bottled. Light yellow, clear, creamy whipped meringue head. Skunky aroma, no surprise. Thanks green glass and dusty long shelftime! Sweetish, very placid body, clean and largely free from such impediments as hops, malt, and flavor, until an unsettling thin metallic bitterness sets in near the end. More proof that French beers not labelled biere de garde need not be purchased from US store shelves.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2004
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.

eraserhd10 (226) - new haven, Connecticut, USA - DEC 30, 2003
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.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
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...

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.
