yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2006
500ml Can, 5% a/v Pours a nice amber color with a tight white head. Smells of cereal and what smells almost like grass. Taste consists of hoppiness but really not much else. Not a bad beer, but not a great one either.

thewolf (12535) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2006
Fresh, yellow colour with low carbonation. No head to speak of. The taste is slightly bitter with a hoppiness, but not enough to convince.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Pretty much swill. France does alot of things right regarding food and drink. This is not one of them. A crime considering the superb brews made just over the border in Germany and Belgium. This is like bad French Heineken.

Typical medium-gold lager with minimal head retention. Not much on the nose aside from a hint of Frosted Flakes breakfast cereal. Same can be said for the flavour - not much going on. Refreshing. Basically a bitter soda water with lots more calories.

RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Decent looking pour...very typical pale macro-kinda lager. Strong corn adjunct flavor,with some mild pale malt and a medium herbal hop bite. Very reminiscent of American macros that are so much easier to get and every bit as disappointing to drink.

Had this on-tap at a local bar that was advertising the fact they had it, like it was something special, served in a standard bar pint glass. Made a decent appearance, poured a clear oranged hued straw golden with a large fizzy head that left some ringed sticking. Had a funky, earthy hop with pale grain aroma, a mingling of the scents, a slight lemony yeastiness. Moderate carbonation and a slick, bland light bodied mouth feel, below average drinkability. An earthy hop taste at first, just a slight hop zing on the tongue, a bland graininess, a buried breadiness and a dry sour lemony finish with a little lingering earthiness in the palate.

Pretty pittiful for a mainstream lager. I was unimpressed with the greeen bottle and the skunkiness.

This tasted a lot more bland than I recall from years ago, but this seems the same for me for a lot of beers I try these days. It is a pale golden affair that must be the French equivalent of Foster’s. Just another mass produced beer pushed onto the world by a brewer. I think it is better than VB, but I cannot be sure. Cheers folks
