3.63/5 rDev +24.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a clear, light amber body with a near white head that peters out fairly quickly.
Smell: Meager breadiness and faint nutty, caramel notes and a wash of fruitiness like sniffing a pitcher of fresh sangria blanca.
Taste: Washed out, watery tastes of nutty, faintly sweet caramel and salted bread speckled with brown sugar. Fruitiness akin to a splash of Mott's apple juice and white wine. Mild herbaceous hop character with a light, balancing bitterness. Small touch of alcohol warmth. Finishes relatively crisp with lingering tastes of bread and apple.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Soft mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A tad simplistic and ordinary, but it's goodly quenching as I sit here in muggy GA with the AC on the fritz. For being light in flavor, I would prefer to see less alcohol, but it's no big deal, I suppose.
Serving type: bottle

Got this one in France while on vacation last summer.
From a 65cl swing-top bottle into a mug.
APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with great retention. Fades slowly to a good cap leaving some sticky lacing to the sides of the mug. Clear amber yellow with medium carbonation evident. A splotchy wisp and ring remain leaving some lacing down the glass. Good looking for the style.
SMELL: Caramel notes, toasted grain, grainy bread aromas with some floral and grassy hops in there.
TASTE: Follows the nose nicely. Caramel and toasted malts up front with some nice floral hop bitterness at the swallow. A big finish or bready sweetness, honey and caramel flavors, bitter floral hops and some grassy notes. Decently flavorful and enjoyable.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, smooth going down and finishes dry. Good feel.
OVERALL: I guess it's the anti-lager syndrome on this site, but this is a solid pale lager. No question about that. The nose and flavor were plenty enjoyable and well balanced, and the look was rather appealing as well. A good lager worth checking out if you're in France.
