HopsIPAndDrunk (43) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 16, 2011
Aroma is skunky (typical of many lagers) with an alcohol background. A floral essence of hops can also be detected. These aromas combined are very enticing. A crystal golden color with a clear sparkling complexion. Head is frothy-white with a well-balanced lacing. Light bitter taste that proves refreshing. Has a very appealing fresh taste. Medium body that has a thin texture with lively carbonation. The finish is an impressive long, faintly bitter that tops off an excellent beer experience. This is by far my favorite lager on the planet. (And has been that way for a long time). Highly recommended!!!!!

Aggiebob (149) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear straw yellow with a white head and ample carbonation that left a small amount of lace. The aroma was grassy and barnyard. The flavor was grain/dough and slightly sweet. Very light body.

Bottle. Overall, not bad. Some people have commented that it’s sweet, but I didn’t get that. It has more of a sort of musty flavour which I think you’ll like or hate. I can see why they drink this in France - it has more body and flavour than other lagers and tastes more like beer, though I personally wont be keeping it in the fridge as my go to beer.

vinivini (564) - BELARUS - APR 18, 2015
From the memories. Pale yellow, white head of big bubbles. Aroma of grain, hay, metal. Light body. Thin textute. Sweet grainy flavour with some grassy hoppiness. All in all a typical eurolager.

No wonder they drink wine... horrible mix of water and grain. One of the worst I ever tasted.

mabuzzer (211) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear straw colour, good white head, grassy aroma, crisp taste, clean finish. As macro lagers go, a good one

rdixon77 (1375) - Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2015
Old rating. Honestly, I all I remember thinking is it is an unpleasant mixture of water, grain, and skunk. Green bottle?

Vestlake (184) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Very basic pale lager aroma and taste. I would say this is better than most imported lagers though, including Stella. If you want a basic lager, this is the one.

Slaktmasken (64) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
En av mina vanliga blasköl som slinker ner pĺ sommaren. Inte mycket att säga om den, en vanlig ljus lager.

Hamirubi (170) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2015
25cl bottle, at "Clairevie" in the French Vallée des Gaves (Argelčs-Gazost) in 2011. A classic French lager, highly commercialised. Nice malt but weak nose, light body, good taste.
