This was a white elephant from my boss at Xmas. Part of a Cost Plus World Market Beers of the World.

App- A medium yellow with a small 1/2 finger pure white head the escaped the glass quickly. Left a nice small amount of cling down the glass.

Smell- Right down the middle. Smelled like a lager but that was about it. Very diluted aromas of yeast and malt but not skunky. Just there.

Taste- When it opens this was just a tad floral with a small amount of maybe lemon? It was a unique citrus note that was just kinda there. A small amount of malts balanced with a little grain note.

Mouth- A bit thicker medium for a lager which was nice and balanced by a medium carbonation level with some malty sweetness and residual lager yeast.

Drink- It was just pretty average. I wont knock it for what it is. Its a staple in Europe and France but just too bland for my liking.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thick ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of grainy malts in the nose along with hints of floral hops.
T: The taste has flavors of bready and grainy malts along with some hints of associated sweetness. No bitterness is perceptible, although the hops keep the sweetness in check.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a better taste and thicker mouthfeel compared to others in the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Brilliantly clear golden body with eggshell white head. Thin head that dissipates quickly. Moderate lacing.

S - Very malty up front. Towards the end a hint of lemon and a very very slight hint of urine which is undesirable. No hop aroma detected.

T - Watered down malty sweetness throughout. A slight DMS fault towards the end. Bitterness levels are nice throughout.

M - Light bodied, with a nice carbonation level to it. Feels great.

O - The beer is okay overall. The taste isn't great which greatly brings down my opinion of the beer.
