The old world flip-top would suggest Grolsch-esque characteristics, but previous exposure has taught me otherwise...

This beer pours a slightly hazy medium pale golden colour, with lots of thin puffy white head, that melts into a fairly thorough covering of lace around the glass. The smell is very light watery white cracker malt. The taste is very light, ethereal, the mild biscuit malt taking purvey over all. The real differential here is the carbonation - it is so light and fine as to be reminiscent of sparkling wine effervescence. In fact, the finish does remind me of Cremant d'Alsace, not surprisingly, in its dryness and mouthfeel. The body is very light, and with standard Euro Pale attributes, but I can't help but be somewhat mesmerized by the bubbly in this increasingly enticing offering.

French beer tour, no. 1.
Poured chilled in small wine glass.

A: crystal clear amber; thick head dissipates relatively quickly; modest carbonation (went into the head); looks similar to other eurolagers
S: lemon, bit of yeast
T: pretty low on hops; sweet, malty; simple lager; fruit flavors dominate; alcohol well masked; a bit stale in the bottle--would be much nicer on draft
M: ho-hum

Neither good nor offensive, so probably ideal for a hot day and a big thirst.

from notes
A - Straw gold soapy white head retained decent with some random lacing
S - Grainy malt with light fruity and earthy notes
T - Raw grains with a mineral tartness, some mustiness, fruit and boozy flavour, not bad but not altogether pleasant
M - Medium body and a litte flat with a minerally feel that drys out
O - started with a glimmer of hope but its a very average brew

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

650ml swinging pop top poured into tulip 23/2/12

A clear golden liquid with a few suspended particles being moved around by very few bubbles but somehow a nice tight bone white cap that retains well leaving a single ring of lace

S smells like a corny malt liquor without the solvent, a little fruity toffee but not much going on here

T somewhat sweet and just a little shunky but not too offensive, just a little booze but again not that bad but not that good either

M medium bodied but a little flat, leaves my mouth feeling slimy with a corny aftertaste

O pretty average stuff but I finished my big bottle without problems

Not something I'd bother with again, I'm pretty sure the French make better wine then beer

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

It pours a nice medium coppery golden colour, with a thin but not insubstantial head.

The smell is slightly creamy, and dominated by smooth malt aromas and a faint kind of graham cracker smell.

The taste is broad and malty, with some biscuity aspects and a hint of sweetness. Nothing too complex here. It's a bit heavy on the carbonation for my taste, but that's a minor criticism.

Overall, this is a nice lager that stands out a bit from other typical European beers. At the same time, it isn't exactly memorable.
