I had this beer in the bar called Kostaldea in Guthary. Yellow, not much head retention, can feel a hint of hop and light body. Nice refreshing beer to drink in front of the beach on a hot summer days. Maltier than I thought for a French lager, sorry, Basque lager.

Draught, at Bordeaux Airport, France. Golden larger, served with a large fluffy grey head. Sour doe aroma and flavour. Flavour is sharply sour with a medium sweet and sour finish. Burnt toffee comes through right at the very end.

bottle, clear golden, white head. aroma, hoppy, pale malts, light caramel and bread. flavors, pale malts, hoppy metallic palate, light watery caramel malts mouthfeel and finish. Overall finish and profile keeps a touch of malts followed by light bitterness and citrus.

Not impressed with this one. It is just another typical commercial lager. Not much aroma, not much taste.

Metalchopz (3127) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
Originally rated October 2005. Sampled from their green 330mL bottle, brought back by my girlfriend from her European trip. Best before date is 01/10/06. Pours a golden-blonde colour with a fizzy white medium head. Retention is low and some minimal lace is left, here and there. Nice light tiny bubble carbonation. Skunk nose... of course, with some grainy malt, but very mild. The taste is quite light, but yet, refreshing. Some hop, but not too bitter. Some sweetness, but not much. Grain comes out in the aftertaste. No offensive metallic or other garbage in the taste. Just a decent refreshing pilsner-style lager (alternative to Heineken, but lighter tasting).

Golden color with an average sized head that is completely filled with large bubbles. Lagerish sharpness to the nose. Its really just kind of swilly lager tasting but its Basque so slightly interesting.
