look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

250 mL bottle, a gift from a friend vacationing in France.

A - Clear, honey-blond or deep straw color, thin (.5 cm) white airy head

S - Prominent pilsner malts with a slightly fruity aroma in the background

T/M - Very malty with just the slightest hint of fruit (strawberries or maybe elderflower)...no hop bitterness or flavor that I can detect. Sort of a grain or cereal finish, dry, quick finish - no lingering aftertaste. Low carbonation.

Very drinkable

250 ml bottle, bought in France. Amber colour, large off-white head. Strong sweetish aroma with notes of whisky (or rather: whisky liqueur). Flavour is very sweet and sugary, the notes of peat-smoked malts are there, but seem somehow displaced in this sugary environment. Besides the sweetness and smoked malts the beer is relatively light-bodied, without much complexity. Won’t be my favourite tipple this one, but it is not undrinkable. A 250 ml bottle is enough, though.
