Bouteille 33 cl - couleur dorée claire, mousse très éphémère, niveau du goût : pas exceptionnel, dans les standards des bières du même style, reste néanmoins très rafraichissante

DraftDodger (1036) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
Copenhagen 16/4 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Classic design with the red diagonal stripe on white background printed directly on the bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. The head disappears immediately. Not much of an aroma. A little malty sweetness and a little sourness. Quite strong prickly carbonation and watery palate. Not much taste either. A little sweetness, little sourness and a little saltiness. Almost no aftertaste. Quite bland to be honest. But I suspect that it is just what the doctor ordered if you are in a tropical climate. And the bottle is a little design masterpiece in itself.

From the bottle. It’s clean, crisp, dull, and pretty much what a pale lager should be. The malt taste is actually kinda good. No major nasty tastes or flaws, which is about as good as it gets for mass produced lager.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2016
Bottlette, bb Oct 2016 (BL sampler 1). Green-inflected gold. Nose of cooked corn, rice doused with lemon. Some almond in flavour, lemonade garnished with a spritz of lemon peel. Gentle, not to say mild carbonmation. Slightly sticky with cooked banana and corn syurp slickness, yet manages to remain refreshing like lemonade. Love that stubby bottle.

Originally rated on 6/21/08. Pours a rapidly disappering head, some lacing, the body is yellow and the aroma and taste are kind of grassy and sweet in nature, o.k. finish. I occasionally buy this for my wife, shes a fan; but i normally let her keeep it all. A average beer at best.

Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of grains and corn syrup. Taste is light malts and grain. Has a watery mouth feel. Nothing offensive, but it’s just another lager.
