33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Gold orange with lasting white head. Characterful yeasty aroma. Almost tart lemon in mouth, some sherbert. Tasty blond beer. Wow a lot more interesting than I was expecting. Maybe a bit too yeasty. FatPhil (16689) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2016
330ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki) as "Gallia Lager"JorisPPattyn (10061) - BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2013
Nice gold, small head. Pretty savoury aroma. Lightish palate. Vegetal, savoury, starchy. Some soy later. Palate a bit slick and stodgy once it’s warmed a little. Decent-ish for an industrial pale lager, but poor as a beer.
Huge, fluffy off-white head over clear coppery-golden beer. Extremely caramelly, even nearly fresh (weak) coffee nose, café noir cookies, going over in fresh, parsley aromatised malts; rainwater. Again caramel; weak tea flavoured with honey or caramelsyrup. Finish is definitely drier, hinting at noble hops, resulting in even some discreet bitternesss. Light body, creamy head, medium carbonation. Interesting as a concept, much less as a beer. Quack-Duck (9487) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2012
Bouteille from Terres de Bières. Clear deep golden colour, large white head. Malty base, bitter-sweet character, good hoppy finish. Quite Czech in its overall character.

Sample at SBWF 2015. (labeled as Lager)
Golden with a large white head. Aroma and taste of grain, light butter and some light hops. Medium bitter. Drinkable but nothing special.

Bottle 33cl @Framprix Auteuil. Nose is on grassy hops and with typical pilsenr notes. Aroma is on dry malt with nice grassy and hay hops, good bitterness, light green herb, body is a bit light but the whole is well done near to german versions. Much better than expected.erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2013

Bottle 33cl, A clear yellow beer with huge head. Nose is caramel like, a dry pils, grainy, caramel like, notes of diacetyl, high bitterness at the finish, burnt caramel hints.
Mild grassy hop aroma, classic light malt base. Bit characterless but not bad. Taste is even simpler though, again not bad but just very straightforward. Light bitter, light malts, not much hop character left. It’s a very straightforward lager in the end. Apparently they plan to brew in Paris from 2015; but I better hope they also improve the recipe then. (33cl bottle from Bootlegger) altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2012
