Bomber into pint glass
A – 1 finger frothy off white head reduced quickly, scattered traces of lacing on pour, more while drinking, robust moderate big bubble carbonation in a amber brew 3
S – The nose does not build excitement, a mineral scent, grain & mild malt 2.5
T – (Too) much like the scent, grains with a sweetness, notable but mild malt and hop personality, a minor granny smith apple note to it 3
M – Light body, a smooth wet drink on the thin side 2.5
O – OK but not memorable, a bland easy drinking Frenchie I will not buy again, perhaps a baby step for the BMC drinker, no love, maybe like but that’s probably an overstatement also, a weak 3

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.
