nice 22 ounze bottle with a swingtop poured into a pint glass amber color, off white head. smells of floral hops. tastes nice and smooth, A little on the sweet side, could use more bitterness. good smooth mouthfeel with good carbonation. overall a very drinkable good amber beer. very simple with nothing offensive about it. I would buy it again..

A- always love a swing top. Dark lager? No.. More of a medium amber. Off white head falls quickly to a thin disk of generic foam. Lightly hazed.

S- cereal grains and a touch of caramel sweetness.

T- cardboard malt and a bit of an herbal Hop twang. Mild sweetness.

MF- light and fizzy with some dryness. Has a sort of soda pop corn syrup feel.

D- one dimensional and teetering on the edge of boring, this would be a good gateway brew to help a pale beer drinker cross over to the dark side. Don't expect a Biere de garde when you see France on the label and 6%abv. It's closer to a euro bud platinum. Although this one is good for a bad example, it must be said that it would be easy to drink and party on if kept extremely ice cold. And chugged responsibly.

Light amber hue; just a shade above a clear lager. Poured with a small head that dissipated within a minute of drinking. Smells were barely discernible, and included sweet malt. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Taste of crackery malt, slight rind like hops, and some oddly placed sugary sweetness. There is an out of place twang above it all before it fades dry. Not bad, just nothing all that special. It's better than your standard non-1664 Kronenbourg!

12 oz bottle, no date.

appears slightly hazy amber copper in color. thin white head. sweet aroma, a little spicey earthy hop aroma.

mild in flavor, just a touch of caramel. no hops detected in the taste. thin, higher carbonation.

overall- eh, pretty boring. I'm confused - on the lable it says "Imported Ale", but it's listed as a lager here on BA. Is this just a Texas label issue?

i did appreciate this beer for what it is a french amber, and it was just that. pourned into a tumbler glass, nice reddish amber color with some white foam. the head didnt really stick around to long. mouth feel was carbonated, but not to much, with faint apple hiding behind the initial hoppy taste. i could pick up on the hidden bready yeast right before the hopps kicked in. its labled as a ale on the label, and i would have called it an ale too. as it became oxygenated the apples became more dominate to the tongue. it took on a more apple cider type of corbonation. overall it was'nt bad i enjoyed it and would recomend to those newly discovering craft beers.

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

3.25/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - 3.5/5 - Nice color (nearly matches the bottle's color). Pours with a white head that quickly fades away.

Smell - 3/5 - Not picking up much aroma. Just the faint sign of lager.

Taste - 3.5/5 - Dry lager taste. Not "too much" of anything. Almost like grain flavored water. Doughy/bread that quickly disappears.

Mouthfeel -3/5 - Refreshing feel that goes down easy and disappears just as fast.

Overall - 3/5 - Overall, neither a good nor bad beer. For an Amber lager, I've only ever tried one other, and this one is superior, but far from something I would seek out. But would definitely drink one if it were given to me.

The cool bottle is by far the best part of it. :)

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours light amber with a white fizzy head. No retention, no lace.

Light caramel notes, some light vegetal bitter notes.

Light caramel and malt, some light hop bitterness, some sucrose sweetness, a little malt on the palate with light bitter in the finish.

Medium body, could use a bit more carbonation.

A food washer at best. Nothing special, but not hateful. But you can do better.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear light copper in color, the beer has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that slowly died down and left some patches of bubbles on the surface along with a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and left some rings of bubbles running down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of malts and apple cider in the nose along with hints of earthy yeast.
T: The taste has flavors of grainy and caramel malts along with a bit of sweetness and hints of apple cider.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although nothing really stands out about the taste, this beer is very easy to drink and goes down easily.

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with swingtop served into De Molen stemware in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a one and a half finger head of slight cream, light thickness, and bad retention. Colour is a semitransparent copper.

Sm: Cream, light toasted malt, and caramel. A mild strength aroma.

T: Cream, toasted malt, and light caramel. Pretty simple. Fairly balanced and decently built.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but a bit too thin. Partly complementary of the flavours.

Dr: Drinkable but very unremarkable. I wouldn't pursue it on draught or anything. I like that it's a swingtop.
