2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Poured from bottle, courtesy of my local barbers, a clear but carbonated pale amber with a good pillowy white head. A subtle hoppy aroma with some malt there too. Quite a smooth mouthfeel for a lager with a dryness that wasn’t too overpowering. Grassy flavours with a hint of honey sweetness. Better than most lagers this.

(Can 50 cl) Nice pilsener golden with a neat, creamy head. Weak aroma of malt. Lightly sweet malt character and some fruit. Weird metallic notes. Not unpleasant as such - just very inharmonious. 280705

The brewery produces cheap supermarket lager for Brits, so I had no expectations of this. It’s a bland, inoffensive lager - the kind of thing you might buy in, say, a British supermarket. Poured pale gold with just a sprinkle of foam. Poor head retention. Fairly fruity aroma with some buttery diacetyl. Typical lager palate with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Sweet-tasting but quenching. Nothing here to dislike. (25cl bottle, Amato’s)

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Watery, slightly bitter and slightly skunky, a touch too much carbonation. Rather boring and generic stuff.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - mild hops/malt aroma. Clear yellow color. Light flavor - moderate carbonation, clean light malt flavor with a subtle hops finish. Not too bad for a French beer - just not a great deal of character.
