Poured from a 25 cl bottle.Lightly carbonated, light gold with a small head that has large bubbles that fades quickly leaving a little lacing. Grainy upfront with a sweet malt and fairly decent hop balance. Malt sticks to the tongue, with a dash of hops at the end that is fairly refreshing and suprising for a Swiss beer. Nothing to write home about but worth trying if you are in the west of Switzerland.

500ml brown glass bottle acquired in Drinks of the World, Hauptebahnhof, Z├╝rich, Switzerland, and poured into an An Brainblasta goblet in Belfort, France. Me bottle is a swingtop, not a pull-cap like in the picture. Pfand is one franc. Reviewed live on June 20th, 2011.

A: Not even a one finger head, very slight cream, and terrible retention. Semitransparent yellow-gold colour. Standard fare.

Sm: Caramelized malt, slight cream, and moderately empty barley.

T: Thankfully the malt is restrained, but it's still unwelcome. Barley is moderately empty, as expected, but retains some value. Some nice cream is present on the climax, but I'd like more to fill out the flavour. Simple and not quite refreshing. Pretty balanced, but not built well much to me chagrin.

Mf: Smooth and wet. The smoothness gradually fades until the climax, whereupon the ersatz coarseness helps to bring out what little flavours there are in the body. At least it tries.

Dr: Average ABV, pretty good drinkability (at least she goes down easy enough), and a fair price point make this a beer worth giving a go, but not one worth cherishing. Give her a spin if you fancy, lads - just don't expect a whole lot.

250ml bottle poured in a chalice.

Simple Lager. Good and refreshing.

A: Clear golden yellow color with a big white, bubbled and aired head when poured. Not much retention and leaves many lacings
S: Simple. Barley malts, hops and yeasts. "Bready"
T: As the nose: Nice and relevant taste of malts. Pleasant bitterness. Metallic end
M: Very light. Good carbonation. Very good bitterness. Refreshing
D: Good. Finally a could find a nice Swiss Lager to have 24/7 in my frig! :)
