Bottle. From Beers of the world. Guess France better stick to making wine. This poued yellow, no head. No nose. No flavor. No nothing. Believe it or not I think Budweiser is as good as this.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2004
Out of the bottle it seemed a different beer to the one I tasted on Draught two years ago. Poured a clear gold, with short bubbly head that dissipated quickly. Light aroma of grass and sweet malt. In the mouth, the initial sweetness was conflict to the vinous hop notes and light spice. Body was thin and mildly carbonated, with slightly unbalanced flavours throughout into a mildly fruity, short swallow. Nothing to write home about, just another íLagerí, really.

Well perhaps itís the spicy stew-on-rice meal talkiní, but this one seems kinda underappreciated. More fresh hops on the nose than expected and then the same again in the thin mouthfeel flavour. Itís still got those corn overtones that are so odious, but overall it was not too bad.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 Simplistic lager, overly sweet. Can see it going down pretty easy on a hot summer day, but still probably too sugary for me.

Looks like bud with a better head. Weak aroma, weak taste, good lacing. I canít taste anything..east drinking, better than bud but yes, it is weak and borings.

(draft) An absolutely terrible, bland, watery excuse for a beer. Tastes exactly how it looks - weak and boring.

Weak in both aroma and flavor, if you close your eyes, you might detect some hops...

Dorqui (2168) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 23, 2004
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.
