A really refreshing Euro Pale Lager. Here goes:

A: Good for the style. Pours clear gold with a moderate head. Lacing is especially good for the style. Wish it had more body carbonation, though.

S: Good. Hay, wheat, straw, and grass - refreshing pilsner scents. Also a fair amount of bready yeast. Only problem is a tinge of skunk (needs darker bottles).

T: Very refreshing. Helpings of straw and wheat; also yeast. What's interesting is the buttery aftertaste. Usually butter in a beer is evidence of DMSO - not so with this beer; it really complements the other flavors well.

F: Good.

O: A crisp and refreshing beer. Perfect for crushing.

Honestly I was skeptical about this, French Beer, it seems like a weird combo but let me tell you this is a nice light beer, smooth as can be and that slight peach note really adds a unique experience. Would get this again.

I summarize this up front: this beer is quite okay. Looks quite nice, smells a tiny bit Euro Lager-ish but this is quickly gone. Although it is quite densely carbonated, it is very soft and smooth in its mouthfeel and tastes quite creamy, yet nice and dry. The aftertaste leaves some unwanted CO2 flavor on your tongue, the beer would be better without it.
It is nothing unpleasant though with a kind of transparent flavor. Not a big deal, still can be a nice and refreshing drink consumed anytime.

Are you sure it a pale lager. Lagers don't have heavy after taste. It has no crisp sweet bitterness.
Made my buddy take it home after the BBQ.

Pours a golden color with a two inch head and lots of retention. Plenty of lacing present. Smells of lightly sweet corn malt, grass hops, toasted barley, and some other scent that is mildly skunky. Wasn't able to identify it because it is mildly off-putting. Tastes of roughly the same intermixing, but mildly stronger grain and wheat. Has a very light feel to it, but finishes clean with no lingering aftertastes after the swallow. Overall, a fairly decent Euro Lager. Much better than I was expecting, as this typically isn't my style of beer.

Didnt have much flavour, and had a very light smell to it. Overall I wasnt pleased with it. And the bottle says its 5.0% ALC. not 5.5%
