A pleasant suprise. I must have gotten the non skunky bottle. Good with Pizza.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 Excellent refreshing beer. I dring it on tap or bottle, it’s very good. Color is blond, tast is pronouced to a nice hoppy, flavor is moderate. Great beer for parties. Beautiful bottle too ;) highly recommend.

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.

Clear color and diamond. Compact but evanescente foam. Classic, nothing to signal. Moderate bitter for one light and normal beer.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Good pale lager, slightly sweet but not overly so. Good crispness and hop character, well balanced. Probably my favourite of the really common lagers found in the UK.

On Tap. A ridiculously light and easy drinking lager. Really not much going on. Similar in quality and flavor to Budweiser. Maybe a hair better since you can actually taste hops. Not recommended unless you’re in a pinch.

Drinking this on tap yesterday, i was most dissapointed. Weak aroma with a metallic taste. i don’t know if the keg wasn’t cleaned properly or if it was something else, but this was a major dissapointment.

Disney Epcot. Bottle. Decent, but unexciting. Some malt character and light hops. Quenching and slightly sweet. Its there, but nothing aside from that.
