This tasted a lot more bland than I recall from years ago, but this seems the same for me for a lot of beers I try these days. It is a pale golden affair that must be the French equivalent of Foster’s. Just another mass produced beer pushed onto the world by a brewer. I think it is better than VB, but I cannot be sure. Cheers folks

Bière blonde conventionnelle. Mousse blanche, persistant légèrement sur les bords. Carbonation haute. Arôme malté d’orge, rien de spécial. En bouche fade,à part une petite amertume d’houblon. Pis beaucoup trop de carbonation pour déguster quoique ce soit.

Not the best smelling European lager I’ve ever come across. Like many in the category, it gets the job done but just barely. Hold your nose when you take a sip and you’ll be alright.

Bière sans grand caractère ni gout, pas de profondeur, trop pétillante, bref rien d’extraordianire

Keg in a bar somewhere in France. Golden with a white head. An OK lager. Nothing to make it stand out of the crowd. Bitter and refreshing with mild spice and citrus.

From 500 mL can. Aroma of hay and bread. Pours a clear slightly golden pale with frothy head. Slight sweet taste. Light body, oily texture, lively carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish. Seems to me like a slightly creamier and sweeter version of the Euro Lager.

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2014
France’s national standard lager, so to speak, now owned by Carlsberg. Pale golden blonde with snow white head. Metallic, with corn sweetishness, watery body with herbal hop bitterness in the finish not unlike Carlsberg’s. A little bit different from the standard but still a boring pale lager.

On tap @ Boulebaren, Stockholm, 20140823. Faint aroma of banana and pear, some yeast. Taste is similar with some bready malt. Quite bland.

500ml can on the train. Pours a dark gold with a small head. Smells a bit like a witbier. Refreshing. I'd go for this over the other macro lagers that are usually on tap.
