3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Cafe Beaubourg, 4/19/15, as just "St. Omer"
Sparkingly clear light blonde body is topped by a large but mostly diminishing white head.
Not much in the nose, light minerals, soda water, bits of dusty and grassy hops with just a pinch of biscuit-like maltiness. No sweetness. No alcohol, or flaws either, though.....
Clean and crisp in flavor, despite the relative lack of much going on here, it was very dry, with no stale syrup or waxiness/paper, or the million other things that ruin these indusrial style pale lagers. I really quite enjoyed it, though we’d walked quite a bit, it was my first beer of the trip, it was quite hot, and I like pale lagers....so take my rating with a grain of salt.

Bottle from morrisons. Golden beer with residual head. Aroma is bready and perfume. Taste is pale malts, a little floral and bread. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at fondue in Geneva. Bright golden colour, thin head, sparkle. Looks like lager but presented nicely. I was quite smashed but this wasn’t horrendous, not too much adjunct, a little bit of hop bitterness.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,25L bottle. Pours golden with white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, sugar, maize, citrus, hints of something nasty. Flavor is sweet, malt, maize, citrus. Finish is maize and citrus. Overall: nasty brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can served in a regular glass.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow golden color with lots of carbonation. Forms a big and aired bubbled white head that dissipates quickly leaving almost no lacings
S: Strong notes of sweet grains and caramel. Adjunct malts give it some cardboard notes. A bit bready. Some hops. A bit metallic
T: Simple beer. A cheap Euro Lager. Sweet grains and caramel in upfront. Its bitterness is a shame. Taste can be also metallic and corny. Very artificial
M: Very light watery body. High carbonation. Sweet grains-caramel aftertaste
O: Really bad. If you want to go to a bad French beer, take a 1664 because this one is really "nulle", as we say in French

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can (I think) from Papantoniou, Pissouri, Cyprus. Bright gold haloed half-arsedly with white. Nose of pine needles and envelopes. Better taste with a lowlands squeeze of wine gum sherbet hop, pine traces, light spoiling glue but no paper, decent clean bitterness to finish. Peanut and citronella. Better than acceptable.
