3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml. bottle: This came from the local food store in France. It had a plastic cork that was just about impossible to remove. I wish that I had some pliers. It pours a clear golden color, with a bit of fizziness. There was a fairly decent head on it, but it went away rather quickly. Milder aroma, but pleasant. Notes of spice, grassiness, some malt. No real standouts. The flavor lacks standouts, but is a very nice blend. Some malts, citrus, bitterness, grassiness. This sort of grows on you. Not bad!
