Free cans in the airport lounge of Charles de Gaulle outside Paris. Why not?
A: a very gold/amber, a light foam ring with hints of lacing.
S: very malt heavy. hops are an afterthought.
T: again the malts take center stage, but beyond this, there is much lacking in flavor.
MF/D: very flat in taste, though that may be due to the can. the flavors (what little there are) do not linger long on the tastebuds.
Serving type: can

DATE REVIEWED: June 21, 2014... GLASSWARE: Blanche de Chambly pokal... OCCASION: Willow Lake orientation day...APPEARANCE: cascading bubbles round out a clear golden body; thick white head--exhibits excellent white cloudy lacing... AROMA: fragrant Saaz with soft lemongrass and some wheat yeasts--fresh and energizing (and unexpected)... PALATE: soft, almost creamy champagne-like (unavoidable comparison?) and smooth; light, clean, dry aftertaste... TASTE: a bit maltier than anticipated; refreshing with some fruitiness and honey accents... OVERALLL: a surprisingly strong profile for a beer--a French beer, at that--I had long forgotten since our trip abroad in '03..this beer poured fresh, presented well, cleansed the palate as a pilsner is apt to do, and offered just enough flavor to elicit a satisfied night....
Serving type: bottle
