Another in the series of beers my girlfriend brought back from Culture Biere in Paris. This beer is part of Heineken's portfolio, brewed in France.

The screen-print labelling on the bottle reads "Oko is the surprising alliance of a light blond beer with the fresh and exotic aromas of green tea." And that pretty much describes this beer exactly: a light green tea beer, probably a lager.

The beer is crystal clear and golden in color, with a decent sized head that dissipates a little too quickly. The aroma is green tea all the way, with a hint of lemon and sugar sweetness to go along with just a bit of herbal/earthy notes.

There is more sweetness in the flavor as well as obvious green tea. The aftertaste becomes herbal then perfumy. I would have preferred perhaps less sweetness in favor of more natural tea/herbal flavors to go along with some hops.

This beer is interesting for what it is. If you think you'd be a fan of a green tea beer, then this is worth a try. Otherwise I don't really see it as much of a cross-over hit. This beer is above-average in that it has more flavor and uniqueness than your run-of-the-mill brew and it doesn't offend.
