One of better massive production Eu lager beers. Well balanced, without any disgusting notes. Very clean and smooth lager. Alcohol is nicely hidden and above average. Crisp and lightly creamy. Nice golden colour and nice white top. Finally one Eu lager to recommend!

Tried in a café in Paris at a cost of €7.70 a pint ! I also tried at home, a can bought at local shop. Bit maltier than the original Kronenbourg. Nice and pleasant aroma. The taste…the hop, is this the taste of Strisselspalt Hop ? I really enjoyed it.

On tap on a local pub of Bermondsey, London - UK. Color: clear blond beer with high carbonation and small white foam. Smell: caramel malt notes. Not really dominated by something. Taste: sweet caramel and malt, caramel finish astringence normal and small bitterness. Nothing really special. Aftertaste: wet bitterness. Easy drinkable.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 12/23/2014. Pours crystal clear golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice pale lager style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
