look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the tap into a 25mL glass in Shanghai China.

A: The beer is a pale hay-gold color with lots of streams of carbonation coming through. Head is 1 finger, pure white and lasts a few minutes.

S: Very citrus - lemon peel with bread. Some grass and wildflower.

T: Light and balanced. Good sourdough bread character. Some light floral hoppy notes coming in. Grassy, finishing with a hint of lemon zest. Nice and refreshing.

F: Can't be said enough. Light and refreshing.

Overall: Very solid beer. Can finally see what people here are raving about. If only all pales were this subtly flavorful rather than going for ONLY refreshing. A great reminder that good beers don't have to be extreme, dark, etc.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A 330ml green glass bottle with a BB of March 2013. ABV is stated as 5.2%. Picked up from a supermarket some time ago. Described as extra blonde; bottles of Vedett always feature strange artwork of the rear label (in this case a photo of a cigarette vending machine that now sells art).

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A pale golden colour with faint haze and good carbonation. Yields a large head of fluffy white foam that hangs around for a few minutes before reducing to a thick surface layer. Aroma of light malt with hints of stewed hops, faint grain, and a mildly sulphurous harshness in the background.

Tastes of light malt with a dry, bitter finish. Notes of stewed leaves, grain husks, very faint overcooked veg and a background harshness. A crisp, distinguished bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is light, dry and tingly, with prickly carbonation and good body for the style. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of acrid stewed leaves.

Rather lacklustre. This has the makings of a decent lager; it looks good and overall its character is quite clean. However, the aroma and flavour are spoiled by a pervasive harshness that negates the beer's better qualities. In the end, it's just another run-of-the-mill lager with little to set it apart from the competition. No need to seek it out.
