Pours an amber color. Slight head, minimal lacing, both dissipated quickly.
The smell was actually really bad. Didn't smell malt or hops, it really smelled like metal and water.
Taste was light. Malts and a slight sweethness. Kind of watery. Taste was below average and not very good. Very easy to drink though.
Thought it was kind of flat and dry on the tongue.
Really, not much good to say here. It didn't taste offensive and wasn't hard to drink, but it had no balance at all and it was kind of hard to drink 14oz of this because the flavor was so bland. Not quite as bad as a typical macro lager, but pretty close. I would have to imagine the IBU of this beer would be in the teens. I had never heard anything positive about the French and beer, and this beer shows why pretty clearly. It just wasn't good at all. Not drain pour bad, but certainly not good enough to visit again.

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.
