imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2003
Bottled, pasteurised. Golden yellow with highly carbonated head. Chemical nose then a sweet sugary malt flavour. Saccharine overnotes and a fizzy finish.

jgb9348 (5012) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Golden colour with a thin fast-dying white head. Aroma of skunk, malt, subtle hops and a minute sweetness. Medium to Light-bodied; Sweet malty flavour with caster sugar and a subtle skunkyness. Aftertaste is very clean, but shows a bit of sweetness. Overall, decent, but not stellar. I was lucky enough to have the actual French version of this beer-no english on the labels at all! Phil's (Haddon90) parents brought a case of this back with them when then went out to France, and I was lucky enough to try one of these 25 cL bottles. I sampled this beer on 25-November-2003.

bluevegie (3066) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2003
Straight forward lager, golden colour with small head, malt aroma, oily texture and slight bitterness.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2003
Bottle. Typical lager malt aroma and faint grassy hops. Watery body without much character, improves when it warms up and looses a bit of carbonation.

canary dog (685) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Another skunky, typical Euro lager. They all taste the same; although this one might be a little dryer and not quite as sweet as others.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Yellow with smallish head. Lots of carbonation in this one but it provides a refreshing alternative to cask ales. Has light hops and goes down well.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2003
Found it again in a bottle here after bitter (actually not really) memories on tap in the old dart. This beer is one that stirs up memeories of a forum discussion by Ringo about local crap being better than foreign crap. At least on draught it is fresh, even though highly dumbed down for mass consumption. The bottle doesn't give much more but for a slight improvement in hop aroma and flavour.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2003
gold, small white head. a thin, sweet lager with very little in the way of hops or anything redeeming.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2003
Draught. Clear light golden body, with generous carbonation supporting a medium to large white head (medium if served in the UK large on the continent). Softly balanced hops v malts, producing an easily drunk beer. Can be found in most high street shite pubs, try to avoid these examples as their not a fair representation of the beer. Most Parisian bars do a better job of it.

Bov (10215) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 9, 2003
clear golden colour, fine head, well-structured, well-hopped - acceptable
