Pale yellow. Weak in flavor and thin head. Not enough hop bitterness for me, but a good refreshing lager nonetheless.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2005 Yep a golden yellow poured from the can... Light hops with some bitterness, I do agree. Some crisp malt presence to quench the days heat. This beer has corn in it besides malt but its reasonably good tasting without corn-worty artefacts - I feel it is well made macro suds. One thing is the carbonation is slightly sharp and the aftertaste not so clean, a tinge metallic perhaps. But leagues better than Becks, for sure. Im surprised. But if I were drinking this in France Id have a peristent vague uneasy sense I could better occupy my taste buds in said evirons. Could be worse but nothing memorable.

Poured a golden yellow. Light hops with some bitterness. Refreshing beer to drink on a hot day in southern France.

Nice about the bottle is that you can open it with your hand, but the beer inside is not that special.

Golden yellow, small, white head, high carbonation. Very little malt, some hops. No firmness. Good for a thirsty south european. Dull.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Translucent yellow / gold in color with a creamy white head thats now backed off and left some nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is standing laundry water, cotton, Fabreeze and hair detangler. Sweet, sour and easy going on the palate. Somewhat of a flavorful pale lager. Strong sourdough impressions met with a signature lemony-citric edge. Doesnt progress to the lager twang (characteristic of the style), but it doesnt impress much either.

larsniclas (6960) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden, large white head. Sweetish and with lot of vegetabele-notes. Cereal and grassy flavour with too much carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 Pours light golden with a dense white head that is mostly receding. Aroma of grassy herbal hops with some corn and DMS. Taste is a bit grassy and bitter with some adjunct maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin with lively, spritzy carbonation. This beer is very bad when skunked. Try to find fresh samples if possible.

Definite grassy hops in the nose. Some hay and cereal malts also. Sparkling golden appearance as expected. The flavor is bitter and a little on the earthy side which is a nice change. Malts are sweet and bread like. Pretty good example of the lager style. If you like lagers you will like this beer, otherwise you will not. Overall pretty typical but not bad. This is a good beer to have with a meal.

Wow, this proves that the French CAN be dull!! Golden yellow, poor head, no lace, no aroma to speak of, and a palate that leaves you searching for... something, anything to talk about. No kidding, I really feel that this has even less character than mass-produced below-average stuff than Canadas Labatts and Australias Emu Bitter. Not bad, just featureless.
