3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow and cloudy. Some hop presence
and slightly acidic. Different but the bock in its title through me. It is definitely not a bock.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Fully hazy orange-ochre, with a good yellowish head. Fresh greenery nose, laurel, citrus and very fresh malt, nearly greenmalt. Sweet main taste with an extremely dry, but nowhere bitter hop lining. Rather sourish hints, but then I think the beer oversaturated with CO². Gradually the (Eur) hop flavour builds up, getting very outspoken and quite nice, slightly citrus and even resiny. Light but not watery, refreshing dry hopflavour keeps hanging on very long. Nice, light drinking beer, well worth searching for.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 2008-09-21, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Hazy golden color; medium head, reducing quickly. It has a light cheesy aroma, mild, typical of some English Ale. The flavor is less interesting, the body a bit too weak, not enough malt flavor; it’s hopped enough, some hop oils from English hops, but also a bit harsh. Drinkable but nothing special.
Blond color. The aroma is quite hoppy and very fruity, fresh. The taste is more rough, some malt, well hoppy and aromatic but too long infusion. Ends well hoppy with quite a lot of resins. Happy that in France somebody uses hops! (even if in a non very professional way)

bottled at la Fête de la Bière 2005, Lausanne - hazy golden-orange colour, giant foamy head, aroma of wet wort and apricot/melon, good malt body and a solid finishing bitterness, the finish is very hoppy, dry and bitter - very good except a small mistake in the aroma
