UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 2008-09-21, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, 7-4-6-3-13=33Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Hazy golden color; medium head, reducing quickly. It has a light cheesy aroma, mild, typical of some English Ale. The flavor is less interesting, the body a bit too weak, not enough malt flavor; it’s hopped enough, some hop oils from English hops, but also a bit harsh. Drinkable but nothing special.
Blond color. The aroma is quite hoppy and very fruity, fresh. The taste is more rough, some malt, well hoppy and aromatic but too long infusion. Ends well hoppy with quite a lot of resins. Happy that in France somebody uses hops! (even if in a non very professional way)
Getestet beim LCRBM
Säuerlicher Antrunk, etwas hopfig, etwas herb. Später steht der Hopfen etwas mehr im Vordergrund, ein würziger Unterton ist gerade noch zu erkennen. Wässrig.

3rdLCRBM Spicy aroma with citrus. Spicy flavor (cinnamon, laurel). Thin. Citrus aftertaste. Unspectacular, but not bad. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2005
bottled at la Fête de la Bière 2005, Lausanne - hazy golden-orange colour, giant foamy head, aroma of wet wort and apricot/melon, good malt body and a solid finishing bitterness, the finish is very hoppy, dry and bitter - very good except a small mistake in the aroma JorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2006
Draught Fully hazy orange-ochre, with a good yellowish head. Fresh greenery nose, laurel, citrus and very fresh malt, nearly greenmalt. Sweet main taste with an extremely dry, but nowhere bitter hop lining. Rather sourish hints, but then I think the beer oversaturated with CO². Gradually the (Eur) hop flavour builds up, getting very outspoken and quite nice, slightly citrus and even resiny. Light but not watery, refreshing dry hopflavour keeps hanging on very long. Nice, light drinking beer, well worth searching for.

Deep golden-amber beer. The aroma is quite strange with a mix of grassy/herbal hoppiness that seems like it’s gone off. Quite european with mostly noble hops that have gone a little bit cheesey. A light pale malt backbone that also comes across sort of oxidized. Light bitterness with a lingering dustiness. I suspect this bottle was once better, but it seems pretty poor to me.

A Mes rate:
Bottle at LCRBM3. Cloudy dark blonde colour. Floral and grassy and generally hoppy all round with some nice yeasty barnyard notes and a decent bitter finish. Interesting but not amazing. notalush (5876) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing - cloudy golden ale, with a soapy, lasting lace - very mellow, earthy, musty aroma, with some stale hops kicking around in the back - opens earthy and tart, with a tiny bit of funk - some grassy but stale hops (but given the nature of the other characteristics, I believe this is intentional - this beer is MEANT to taste old) - a bit of grain/bread late - some cork and lingering earthiness - tastes like a Parisian basement (that’s not as bad as that sounds). skortila (5873) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2007
3rd LCRBM. Aroma is yeasty/spicy/barnyard and citric. Hazy, yellow coloured with a thin, white head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter-sour, citric with some hop. Okay. johndoughty (5449) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2006
Yellow and cloudy. Some hop presence
and slightly acidic. Different but the bock in its title through me. It is definitely not a bock.
