A frothy, two-finger head with a silky sheen covers this Alsatian ale, which is crystal clear and a deep honey-amber color. Good retention and lacing, with steady streams of bubbles from the bottom. The aroma has a slight herbal aroma at first, but dissipates rapidly.
First sips reveal a clean, fresh flavor with little depth but decent grain presence and a bit of a floral accent. Ample carbonation makes it easy to swallow, but also makes it seem a little watery. A light hops hit at the end with lingering butterscotch notes completes the impression.
Perfectly acceptable for washing down some pomme frittes, but not a brew for haute cuisine.

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.
