Canned (thanks Rob!). Yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is malts, alcohol and some fruityness. Flavour is fruits, mild malts and hops along with some mild spicy notes. Aftertaste is mostly fruity and spicy. Also has some alcohol in it the flavour.

50cl can from Leclerc. Amber with a thin off-white head that rapidly faded; sweet honey and apple aromas; full-bodied, malty and rather sweet, with an alcohol burn to the finish, leaving a very sticky mouth-feel. Not pleasant.

Comprata in lattina da 50cl ad un supermercato (DiPerDi?) in via San Luca, quello con la focacceria sopra; lho presa perch ho letto Castelain, e ricordavo che la ChTi di Natale non mi era dispiaciuta. Ma questo un prodotto di altro rango, una birra con meno pretese e qualche grado alcolico di troppo; non saprei dire se davvero una strong lager o una bire de garde. Tutto sommato non saprei bocciarla completamente, ha un qualcosa che ti fa pensare che tutto sommato si pu anche lasciarla quietare

Clear redish coppery body, white head. Aroma is caramelly malty with some medicinal and fruity hops. Flavour is strong malt, alcohol, berries and some yeast when warms up. Much alcohol.

DeanF (2417) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
750ml bottle found at Auchan in La Defense. Pours yellow-gold with soapy head, aroma of syrup and malts. Taste is a still-too-sweet mix of malt and caramel, slight leather notes as well. A little on the undeveloped side.

Corked bottle from Auchan, Quatre Temps, La Dfense, Paris
Hazy deep blond color; eggwhite head. The aroma is almost absent. The body is quite strong, poor malt flavor, corn; strong bitterness, the final is a bit oily. Useless.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Mondiale 08. Pours a bland pale gold with a fizzy soda like head to nothing. Aroma is straight up DMS and acetaldehyde and raw uncooked malt extract- honey and too sweet- corny. Flavor is grassy, thick syrupy sweet malts, rice, liquid malt extract twang, corn grits, DMS and green apple skin which just made me feel like I was getting a headache as I drank this swill- gross.

500ml can from Carrefour, Calais. Gold colour with thick lasting off white head. This has won awards apparently. It also says on the list of ingredients that it has some "wheat based glucose syrup." Perhaps that is why it is a bit hazy, it would certainly explain why it is too sweet. Its a bit thick and creamy in the mouth too. Bland. No sharpness to this. Just a sweet sugary mass of cereal. No real hop presence. Along with the 33 Export I had before this, possibly my worst night of beer Ive ever had. I think I have reached rock bottom in trying to find new beers. Now I wonder if I could buy a couple more and take them to the RBESG in Plsen......
