This maybe my favorite session beer of all time- light but flavorful. Smooth with a hint of hop- great with food- especially pub/comfort food. A delight!

Had this beer once and in Paris, sold it on the street with a salami sandwich, ate the sandwich then washed it down with this beer, hit the spot. Very crisp and refreshing. Would give this beer a 5 but because of its glucose ingredient I cannot do such a thing, but it is very refreshing on a hot day.

A top-shelf beer without question. First review in a while so I figured I'd make it a good one. This beer comes from France and the quality all around on it is far and beyond the norm for the EPL style.

A - Thick 1.5 inch head that takes several minutes to dissipate.

S - Corn, Hops, Fruity, Grainy, Warm (Inviting!).

T - Very hoppy and very special and unique because of the type of hops used. No it is not marketing ploy - It is true. Also, high carbonation throughout yielding a very pleasant feel on the tongue and palate, very lively, full of complex flavor, and especially full bodied for 5.0% abv. Impressive.

M - The best part. I like the mouthfeel of this beer because it's balanced, not boozy, at 5% but has enough of a kick to make you feel like you are drinking a classic beer rather than simply beer-flavored water. A trait worth noting I would say when you try the beer. Again, it may have something to do with that special type of hop used.

Overall: Try it and you probably won't look back. The best French beer I've tried yet.

Not my normal style at all but I like it.

Excellent grassy aroma. Clear light amber brew with almost no head.

Flavor is dry and crisp with grassy and coppery notes. Fair amount of fresh grain, moderate hops.

Nice full mouthfeel but more carbonated than I like.

Extremely drinkable. Best euro lager I've had in recent memory. Would make a great session beer.
