A: Transparent amber with a thick, bubbly head and plenty of lacing.
S: Spicy malts come through most prominently. Hops are almost non-existent.
T: Strong malts. Mostly (rotten) fruit and clove. A little bit sour (as has been said here already). Almost no discernible hops. It's sort of like an Olde English 40 oz., but a little weaker and therefore, less disgusting. I honestly couldn't finish it. Awful.
M: Medium-thin body with a nice, dry finish. Lots of carbonation.
D: Ended up pouring this down the drain. The flavor is just awful.
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.
