Body is crystal clear ruby brown, with a slight beige head that dissolves quickly to barely a lid, even after a rocky pour. Aroma is sweet, caramel-toasty. A hint of butter makes the scent seem thicker and somehow savory overall. Taste is cool and sweet, quite grainy and just the slightest touch roasty. No perceptible hop bitterness or flavor at all. Ah, the roast aspect comes in a bit more prominently in the aftertaste, which is otherwise smooth and clean. Body is light, bordering on thin, and only slightly carbonated, which complements the light body very well. Maybe a touch too sweet to be a true session beer, but otherwise quite amenable to high-quantity quaffing. This is more a commercial standby than a classic of the genre, but there aren't any metallic aftertastes or cloying sweetness that sometimes plague commercial beers... quite well done overall.

On tap in a bar in Quartier Dix30.
Appearance is the best looking part with an obvious brown body and good enough head that has a bit of cascading to it. Flavor is decent, mild nuttiness, easy drinking but pretty ordinary obviously. Still, an ok selection.

I love the tone. I really like the fact that it has the initial Heineken smell, I also love Heineken. However this beer does not have the heavy aftertaste. I do wish it were a little more potent ;)
Overall I would stock it. There are MANY beers around that Id pass up for this one. I am not into the IPA format. I prefer stout. But I love how smooth this beer drinks.
