2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle. Strasbourg, France.
Clear pale golden colour with white medium-size head. Quite strong Czech style Pils hoppiness and some maltiness in aroma. Malty and slightly metallic flavour. Not as hoppy as the aroma. Bit of a disappointment. But good for a such cheap brew.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught in the rake. Alround rating: Pale malt exstract, notes of candy sugar, herbal hop exstract, notes of garbage. Poor stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fuzzy white head dissipates quickly over a pale golden body. Mildly effervescent (probably solely due to the etching on the bottom of my Chimay goblet). Milky, grassy aroma, mildly sweet. Light herbal bitters to the flavor alongside a pale malt sweetness. Crisp. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Normal lager but with good caracter in flavor. However, at the end it turns waterish and the palate is lost. Golden yellow colour, almost no aroma. Good to be french beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (Merci, Quack-Duck !): Clear, pale golden, big and firm white lacy head; sweetish-grainy nose, a bit cardboardy, a bit malty, with a grassy-hoppy, almost aromatic and noble background, moderate bitter-sweet flavour, quite light bodied; drier aromatic-hoppy finish with some grainy undertones. Refreshing, not bad.............
