Enjoyed while eating the best pork dish I’ve ever had at Saint Sepulcte restaurant in Strasbourg, FR. The meal was awesome, the beer not so much. Large white head, pale, not much aroma, didn’t taste especially good, but pared well with the meal.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour from a minikeg at Rapebeer’s house- thanks again, Nico! Pours a pretty clear gold color with a small but frothy white head. Notes of pale and bready malts, wet grass, hay, and some mixed fruits. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Not a bad pale lager.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle from Blue Max. Clear golden pour, small white head. Kind of a skunked lager nose. Taste is slightly better - better than BMC.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is typical of a lager, crisp and malty and a little fruity. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy ivory head. Crisp, malty flavor is quite refreshing with a firm fruity note. Smooth texture has average thickness - actually seems a wee bit thicker than most pale lagers - and a decent fizz, though it doesn’t persist. Average all around, but shows that the French can make beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
250ml bottle - Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a darkish, gently hazed, pale golden body with a very thin, very tenuous head.
Smell: Has a smell of adjunct laden pale malts, but, then you get a big pop of apple cider.
Taste: Scant malts, grains and straw, with a big dose of sweet syrup. Near nil hop character, bitterness. Still, it remains a bit hinting of a cider (a dreadful cider, mind you). Sweetish, unclean finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s not good. Your hopes and expectations will fall faster than a meteor.

Bottle. East drinking pale lager. Not a lot of taste but quite nice. It is never going to set the world on fire but it'll do.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in The French House, Soho. Colour is toasty pale amber, white foam lager head. Nose is grainy malt, corn, little bit of dry grass and straw. Taste is grainy, corn, grassy, touch papery. Fairly middle of the road pale lager but not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange/yellow with no head or visible carbonation, but this is probably an old 5L mini-keg. Aroma is semi-sweet with hints of cider. Taste is a bit more malt based, but the lack of carbonation confuses. $10/5L
