radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2003
Gold in colour. Light aroma of grassy hops and just a hint of skunk. Very light body with light hops. Finished with a light bitterness. Refreshing.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2003
From a can. Starts off with a nice hoppy aroma. The head then dies down and you sip it to discover it's actually pretty unpleasant.

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2003
From tap Dark golden. Well balanced. Medium body. ok crafted standardpils, but not inspiring in any way.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Light hop aroma, rubbery and a little sweet. Dark-yellow clear w/white lacing head. Med med. Weak taste, light hops. Slight rubbery finish. Mild after.

hotstuff (3941) - Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2003
The Rathskeller Wine & Beer Fest:When poured, this beer formed a small sized white head that contained fine sized bubbles.The body was clear with very little carbonation.The hue of this beer was yellow and the nose was that of a typical Lager.The flavor was flat and uninviting.The mouthfeel was medium bodied and smooth.This beer was lacking any character.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Another example of mediocrity by the Kronembourg brewery. If this is the only beer they served in a "café", you should order a glass of wine.

KOTBA (17) - GERMANY - JUL 5, 2003
French people know why they serve it with "sirop de pêche", "sirop de citron" (poor men's desperados)and other flavors. Then it actually tastes quite well.

Blond, dry, simple, just good for a hot summer day. Less weak than many others.

abbotsampson (15) - PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2003
As far as lagers go, this one is pretty solid, but a little too sweet in my opinion. The color is a rich golden-yellow with a nice head. The aroma is sweet and malty, as is the taste. The finish is crisp, but rather flat... not really much taste at the back of the mouth. Overall, a cheap staple lager... nothing to write home about.

woodruff (16) - ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2003
Always been a good French staple. Made a concerted attempt to get a major foothold in the UK a few years ago (unlike 1664 which has been around for ages) where it never seems to taste quite as good as on the continent. Whether this is just becasue it's always sunnier there or not is a debatable point. Nice amber lager colour to it, with a slightly hoppy nose. Without having any particularly great facets, this is always a beer I'm happy to quaff and I've never yet got bored of it on holiday.
