Pours a crystal clear honey colour, with a very small bubbly head. Aroma includes notes of honey, apple, light caramel. Tasting notes include apple peel, pear, grass, with a slight peppery finish. This is quite pleasant.

The Budweiser of France. It tastes like wet grass in your mouth with a little hop flavoring. Yah.

Confused as my can (bought in England) is only 5%. One of the few mainstream canned beers I will drink occasionally. Looks standard smells standard, tastes OK. Kind of a sweet ever so slightly first sip, decent bitterness. Drinkable when there’s nothing special around.

This French lager pours a clear golden color and a small and quickly dissipating white head.
Standard hoppy and grainy aroma is not too weak, so the nose easily picks it up.
The taste is also very nice - initially there is slight sweetness which is followed by nice hoppy bitterness. The finish is also pleasantly bitter making this beer a very enjoyable experience.

I haven’t been too keen on lagers in the past. Either this one is excellent, or I’m learning to like pale lagers in general. Very crisp with a nice, light malty finish. Would be my go-to summer brew. I like it also for the extra oomph in the ABV dept. for a beer in this category.

330ml bottle. Golden lager with nice aroma of hops. Pleasant standard inoffensive lager produced to be widely popular. Nothing special. Have had it many times before but wouldn’t go out of my way to get one

This was a 330ml tin, which was part of a gift 6 pack of beers of the French Pacific from a friends from New Caledonia. I’ve had this beer previously.
Aroma: hops. appearance: light amber. Taste: nutty, slight astringent aftertaste.
Pallete: nothing out of the ordinary. Was not too impressed with this effort.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours blond with low off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of skunk, sugar, malt. Taste is of grain, sugar, slight bitterness. Palate: Light body. High carbonation. Poor balance. Overall: Not repulsive. Considering it is way too sweet, it is somewhat drinkable, go guess why. Not a serious offering.

29/XII/13 - on tap @ Strandpaviljoen BaZ (Breskens) - BB: n/a (2013-1192)
Clear deep blond beer, aery white fluffy head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: grains, hay, bit hoppy, some orange peel. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: little bitter, pretty sweet, grains, malty, little sourish. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, sweet, meh. Seriously, this is not beer. I think I’d even prefer a Heineken over this...
