75cl bottle from Auchan, Luxembourg. Pours clear deep golden colour with a mid-sized most good lasting white head. Aroma of sweet and ripe fruits, pale malt. Taste of sweet grainy malt, some ripe fruits, yeasty.

Many thanks to beerhunter111 for this bottle! Easy to drink but sweetish grainy. The body has lots of sweetish grain, not too much bitterness, round and easy to drink without too many depth.

AirForceHops (7240) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft @ Novare Res. Pale yellow color with thick full head, good retention in the Tulip. Light malty nose. Flavor is mild yeast providing a light fruit. I also get a light grain. Lighter in body with a short finish. Very plain and simple. Drinkable but I wasn’t craving another glass.

BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.

Bottle from Auchan supermarket, Poitiers, France. Golden coloured with a sweet malty and toffee flavour, sulphur notes with spicy and biscuity finish.

ruigo (3000) - PORTUGAL - AUG 29, 2013
Shared a 75cl bottle from Auchan (Luxembourg). Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and light. Medium carbonation and very light body. Flavour is light with some bitterness at start but getting sweet at the end. A regular beer.

ThirstyBird (2925) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a golden yellow with a smallish off-white head. The smell is sweet grainy toasted malt. The taste is sweet and grainy with fruit and a dry finish. Light/medium with average carbonation.

2.6
fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2010
Corked bottle from Auchan, Quatre Temps, La Défense, Paris
Blond color. Unoffensive Ale (?), poor aroma (corn), poor flavor in the front, but strangely there is a late fruity touch (Ale yeast), and even very light hop burp. Drinkable; well, in France.

2.6
kaziopiwosz (393) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Medium-bitter with light malty taste. White, thin foam, disappearing quickly. Dark-golden colour.
