Not Great, but drinkable for the price range, well, in france at least.

The beer is the one all the other french supermarket beers tries to copy. Nice light lager, but weak..

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.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2002
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.

ravidesai (940) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 5, 2002
well made if uninspiring lager. pale yellow color fizzy head; some trace of malt in the nose but not much else. light taste with a sweet malt base and a bitter hop finish.palate is a little metallic and watery .

Kemijaba99 (8) - USA - MAY 27, 2002 does not count
Nothing too impressive about it. It’s the ’budweiser’ of france.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2002
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 ! (Rated 8/5/02: Bathampton UK)
