Drank lots of this during time spent in europe, cheap over there and you can find it everywhere. Taste like an average lager, with a bubbly head and too much carbonation. I would drink it again if I was still over there. but I won’t go looking for it here.

The commercial description says it is ’light-bodied’...it doesn’t mention it is also light-flavored, light-headed, and, overall, a bit light on character. This is quite drinkable, mind you, not swill---but with all the great European options available, why bother with something so ’ordinary’? By all accounts the French brewing industry is making a comeback, but with old warhorses like this still prominent, one could understand if they just decide to stick to winemaking.

Had the big 1 qt. can which was more than I needed of this. Slightly skunky smell reminiscent of Grolsch. Light yellow color and small fizzy head. Somewhat bland until a bit of a nasty aftertaste hits the back of the palate. Not worth a second try.

Light flavour, very drinkable. Some hazel-nut in the finish.

Yuk. Didn’t like this one at all. Had it a couple of weeks ago and the smell of it still bothers me. I have to admit the flavor was palatable, but the aftertaste and finish was terrible. These brewers need to go get some re-education.

Nothing too impressive about it. It’s the ’budweiser’ of france.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear pale gold with small quickly dissipating white head. Weak metallic grassy sap like aromas. Medium to soft even bland bitter sweet palate. Ghostlike body and minimal non-descript aftertaste. Depressing really !

A good beer if you fancy a quick drink - not too heavy and you can drink these in great quantity

Average French lager - easily drinkable, but Kronenbourg 1664 is better.
