1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled (5.8%), brewed by SPA ALBAV, Algeria. Pale yellow, brief, rich head. Lemony nose. Sweet with soft, mellow mouthfeel. Clear notes of vegetables that manages to dominate over the strange lemon juice. Tin is obvious. No bitterness.

To be honest, not much to be said on this. Tasted from both the bottle and draught form in Morzine (French Alps). Pretty horrible - dry and no real flavours to speak about. Maybe bearable if you cool to near freezing and then swallow quickly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught in Paris. Pretty darn good for a pale lager, had an interesting funky undertone I couldn’t quite identify. Went well with light fare, was, I dare say, complimentary; there are many worse ways to describe a beer than "went well with munchies." I’d like to re-evaluate.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Quite average look: Clear white creamy head, simple golden body. Light malty weak aroma. Metallic and light bitter flavour, short finish. Too metallic mouthfeel.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 This is not a total disaster as the graininess is bearable and there’s the slightes fruity tinge. The sweetness isn’t overbearing, so, as a cheap mass buy, you can permit yourself one or maybe 8 of these, occasionally.

One of the only decent lagers you can get in Les Menuires. Almost no head at all, not much flavor, a bit like a Heineken but better. A boring lager but nog bad (if bought cheap).

Bring a Pale LAger is its first handicap that I was unable to get over. (I wish I knew what it was when I ordered it) Needless to say, my introduction to French beer was not a welcome one. The head was too thick and the beer was skunky and smelled of cleaning products. Just like other things from france, high in price and low in quality.

25cl bottle from a grocery store in the French Alps. The mountiains were beautiful. the beer was not. Golden with a fizzy white head. skunky aroma. Bland. Just a generic International lager.

It’s really not that great, just another boring lager really, cost way too much in a paris bar (like £4) and wasnt worth a single penny of that. 1664 is a nicer, 1664 blanc is nicer still
