TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Sweet lavender and malt nose. Strange. Amber with small head, one or two bubbles. Taste is crisp, watery, not a lot happening. Aftertaste is faint cooked vegetables, bit of malt, then tinny hops to finish. Pretty ordinary.

Birra industriale, quindi non si può pretendere molto. Presenta solamente due sapori: maltato e amarognolo, non perfettamente amalgamati tra loro. Detto questo, si lascia comunque bere abbastanza tranquillamente ed è dissetante. Diciamo che di birre industriali ne ho assaggiate ben di peggio...

ametras (631) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear dark gold with a frothy white head. Flavors are cereals, honey, lemon and grass. Light body, fizzy carbonation, slick texture.

Bottle from some bollix at a party. Fizzy yellow corn smelling, corn tasting shite. No aroma, fizzy, awful.

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Transparent straw body with very thin bubbly white head. Grassy, cereal with a subtle skunky aroma which becomes more present through the Finish. Light bodied. Some hop presence in the finish with a present carbonation.

ccex (1022) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2014
300 ml bottle from make0your-own six pack pours a clear yellow with a one-finger head that leaves good lacing anyway. Aroma is that of so many other European pale lagers: grainy, grassy and skunky. (I wonder if the skunkiness comes from being exported in green bottles). Taste is slightly sweet with some hops bitterness in the finish. Body is light with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Very easily drinkable and refreshing on a hot day, but nothing outrageously good or bad.

Lager quelconque sans grand intérêt, heureusement au dessus de la kro classique. Pas rebutante mais j’évite quand même.

eRock_2013 (315) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Standard low-budget European pale lager, and while officially French, this brew originates in the more Germanic-influenced Alsace region of France, not that those origins make much of a difference here. Pours a straw yellow with a foamy head that has zero retention, and smells of sweet grainy malt and stale hops. Taste is funky and overall unappetizing, pale malt with adjunct off notes and a sour hoppy bitterness. Very thin and light on the palate. Weak malty aftertaste and dry sticky finish. Has some unique flavors-the malty sweetness is kind of pleasant- and is better than a Carlsberg, but not by much. Nothing special or particularly French about this.
