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.

Green stubby bottle of 330 ml, at home. Poured into a lager glass. ABV is 5,2%.
Pours a very clean and pale yellow colour, with two fingers of semi-frothy/semi-soapy head, with very good retention. Foam leaves quite a lace.Lively carbonation in the glass.
Aroma is grass and malts.
Crisp taste, mostly malty and grainy. Nothing too spectalurar. Short bitter finish.
Very thin body and quite high carboantion. Little dryness on the palate.

I guess it would make a difference if it was a really hot day out, this beer is quite refreshing, and highly drinkable in all its mediocrity, and maybe it would have scored a grade or two more, but unfortunately it's not.
