2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
For a very light European beer, i enjoyed it. Not much too it. Not much flavor. But far better than any American light beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
250 ml bottle, bought at local Jumbo supermarket. Poured into a shaker, ABV 5% on my bottle and also wheat instead of corn (as the commercial desription says on this page).
Nice deep golden colour on the body, with one finger of snow white, soapy head. Good retention, while small bubbles keep rising to the surface. Foam leaves heavy lacing on my glass.
Aroma is very sweet, with lots of malts and the maltose syrup being very obvious.
Taste is not that bad, but it’s very sweet even for a macro produced lager. Again, lots of malts and syrup, but at least it has a light bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thin body as expected, very soft carbonation that bites every now and then.
Overall not that bad.

Draft. Pours golden with a small head. Aroma of lager yeast. Light body with a crispness and a light alcohol finish.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma Agradable, malta de cebada, lupulos aromáticos intensos, cierta notas a maíz y ligras notas metálicas.
En cuanto a su apariencia, Color dorado intenso con cierta palidez, carbonatacion alta, corona de espuma abundante de retención de media a baja. Cuerpo ligero.
En boca suave, ligera, de poco cuerpo, destacando los sabores de adjuntos.
Al paladar se percibe cierta carbonatación, notas a granos y maíz, y sequedad al final del trago.
En resumen una cerveza que no destaca al resto de gran cantidad de cervezas de este tipo, no cumple con su función de apagar la sed y las notas amargas brillan por su ausencia.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma of this beer smells purely of sour dough yeast, and the appearance combines a clear yellow color with a large, pillowy, white head. The taste combines a mildly sour and a touch sweet flavor, and the palate has a medium body, thin slick texture, average carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bright golden colour. White thin head. Aroma is hoppy, herbal. Flavour is more balanced, malty but ending in a short hoppy finish. Light-medium bodied.

Pale blond colour, medium carbonation. Typical lager, not a lot of body but easy drinkable and refreshing.

Pours golden yellow with a white head. Corn, grain, somewhat sweet. Just your basic pale lager.

Golden colour, medium white head.. Aroma of corn, cereal. Not bad for a pale lager but no distinguishing tastes or other features.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Bright pale yellow gold color topped by a big rocky white head. Grainy malt nose with notes of hay. Crisp light malt flavor with light grassy hops in finish. Nothing spectacular, but I always preferred this to the plethora of European pale lagers like Heineken, Becks and Stella Artois.
