Me being somewhat new to the whole beer scene; this bottle is pretty cool. Two things however don't look right. "Product of France" on label but yet no freshness date or alcohol % to be found. Good slow pour into a one pint glass from 1 pint 6oz bottle. Has a nice light copper walnut coloring with a nothing to write home about one finger head with ok lacing. The smell has hints of card board, foil, and a chardonnay. That's it, it smells of boxed wine! Oh and just a bit of pine nuts as well. Unfortunately because our taste buds are heavy on smell that's what it tastes like also a cheap chardonnay. Mouth feel was light and tingly (like wine). I was a little disappointed in this one Beer should taste of Beer (hops/malt).
The after burp car tell you a lot about the beer you just had and this one tasted of a mimosa. Burp test scale of 1-5.... 0.

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.
