From the tap, it had a four finger head. Slightly metallic a little wet grass, with a soft, but not smooth finish. For all the crap I give Japanese macros at least the Japanese can make a decent cheap beer. This was just crap, I expected more from a brewery with such history. On the plus, the taste was a bit nostalgic of beers during my time studying abroad in England.

La base populaire, goût léger arrière goût léger, une bière de masse qui passe pour des soirée si l’on a rien d’autres à boire.
une bière idéal pour commencer à boire mais que bien vite on oublie car plate et au final pauvre dans sa qualité.
Par contre Kornenbourg mérite une médaille pour le style et le marketing de la KRO.

Very very good for a lager, one of my favourite! The aroma is nice and fresh with hops and malted barley in good balance. This guy gives you a very nice and medium fullbody mouth feel with long and tasteful aftertaste. The hops gives this beer a nice refreshing character but without to much bitterness. The CO2 level is also just right and it adds to the breezy feeling. You can drink this one the whole night if you want to without feeling like you’ve eaten a whole cow with tale and everything. VERY GOOD BEER

A very mediocre European beer. I’ve drunk this many times in many locations with many different people.
If anyone were to tell me that this was superior to Hamm’s I’d tell them to fuck off.

I figured that a Kronenbourg was the same, no matter what the label. This version is distinctive with its metal smell & taste, despite being in a glass bottle!

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).

Sûrement la pire bière industrielle. Goût d’eau en bouche très présent, mal équilibrée, aucune saveur. En pression c’est un peu mieux mais passez votre chemin. Autant boire sa propre urine...

From tap in Parisian restaurant. Totally unremarkable. Otherwise watery but had somewhat dull or muddy taste.

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.

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.
