Draught. Clear golden colour. Frothy head that wasnt too tough. Non-noxious aroma is always a good thing. Very smooth..could it be nitro or just the beer itself? Mediocre and inoffensive.

Draft. I have to say I was suprised to see this beer rated so low en masse when I got around to rating it. I didnt like the beer all that much myself, especially the thin palate, but found some characteristics to redeem it. The nose is grassy and grainy, like a lager should. Nothing in the flavor suggested the commercial faux pas of the macros (chemical flavors, acidity, sour aftertaste). In fact, I discovered some caramel, bready flavors with the neverending carbonation. My bias against lagers holds this one down, though.

Draft. eh... golden piss lager color...small head, ok lacing, skunky (in a good way) typical lager taste. All the Essex lads love this lager but hey Im just not a lager guy. Plus this brew kinda sucks. No offense to you rude bhoys out there at the Red Lion in Romford.

MiP (15452) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2005
Draught. Acidic aroma. Standard lager with a hint of acidity.

fraans (31) - ostend, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2005
Here in Belgium , this beer tries to compete with the likes of Tuborg and Carlsberg, but doesnt get anywhere near. Its not bad, but there are a lot of other and better beers around.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - JAN 7, 2005
A decent pale lager. Big, persistent white head on top of a pale yellow beer. Decent biscuit taste with no bitterness, but no crappy cardboard flavour either. Theres better, but theres also much worse.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 Had this on tap and it truly sucked! No head and slightly skunked. One would think it would take effort to make beer taste skunky out of a freshly tapped keg.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 23, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 poured from bottle. scent of extreme skunk. has a very light taste that is actually enjoyable. pours golden yellow, ultra thin head that quickly dissipates. nice smooth drink.

Bottle. From Beers of the world. Guess France better stick to making wine. This poued yellow, no head. No nose. No flavor. No nothing. Believe it or not I think Budweiser is as good as this.

ALLOVATE (2980) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2004
Out of the bottle it seemed a different beer to the one I tasted on Draught two years ago. Poured a clear gold, with short bubbly head that dissipated quickly. Light aroma of grass and sweet malt. In the mouth, the initial sweetness was conflict to the vinous hop notes and light spice. Body was thin and mildly carbonated, with slightly unbalanced flavours throughout into a mildly fruity, short swallow. Nothing to write home about, just another Lager, really.
