Poured into a Stella Artois glass.
A-First of all I couldn't get the damn bottle open, which has NEVER happened to me before, especially with a flip-top. After using the vise-grips to pry the stuck top, I "managed" to pour the beer into it's awaiting glass. There was no head...None. Zip. A few slow bubbles in the amber liquid suggested this was beer. Bad start.
S-Some sweetish malts....
T-Tastes like a shot of rum in a glass of water. Actually I'd rather drink that than this beer. Vague brown sugar notes. No hops. Disappointing dishwater comes to mind. Damn, this drink is the devil....not in a "Duvel" way, either....
M-The three bubbles I noticed when pouring were the only ones in this non-carbonated, water-like "beer"....worst mouthfeel, ever. Seriously...wet paper garbage...no redeeming qualities whatsoever...
D-Undrinkable. I dumped it. That (almost) never happens to me either....
CRUX: UNDRINKABLE LIQUID HERE. Lord knows how old this bottle is, but this is, hands down, the worst beer I've had in a long time, maybe ever....?? Jesus, what an ordeal!.... I got this cos it was only a buck, and it had the flip-top, which is usually a good sign, and not knowing anything, I took a chance....maybe now I'll learn that a flip-top doesn't =quality. Was the $1.00 worth the pleasure of writing this bad review? I'd say the point is moot.
After this beer, christ, I REALLY need a BEER...

probably not as bad as indicated here, but a rather plain take on the style. the pour from the brown flip top bottle is the best feature, developing almost a nitro looking cream head above a bronze tinted liquid. the nose is sweet, like fresh baked desserts all lined up. pie crust flavors also abound, with minimal hop presence and a bit of unfermented sugar left over in the finish. nothing off or offensive in my bottle. not sure why such low scores for this here. medium body, it drinks pretty well, but the finish is quite sweet. fine carbonation and the head has lasted roughly the whole glass. not everyday I get to drink beer from france, so this was a treat, despite being a relatively ordinary brew.
