3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at Café de Paris. What a great find :). Poured a medium sized thick white head that went away relatively slow, golden body. Very light herbal hop nose. Light fruity malty taste with notes of honey and a noticable hop presence. Tasty enough for what it is and a nice surprise.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11/10 0.33 l bottle from Café de Paris, Monte Carlo. Obviously brewed for bars in Monaco only. It poured golden body with medium sized head. Fine aroma of nice, not typical crappy honey malts and herbal hops. Flavor follows that, bitter hops are very well balancing the sweetish malt base. Toast and biscuit notes here more than honey. Slightly thin, but finish was pleasant. Don’t know if I was tired from the sun so the beer came great to me or it’s great indeed for what it is, a pale lager.
