Got this one in France while on vacation last summer.

From a 65cl swing-top bottle into a mug.

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with great retention. Fades slowly to a good cap leaving some sticky lacing to the sides of the mug. Clear amber yellow with medium carbonation evident. A splotchy wisp and ring remain leaving some lacing down the glass. Good looking for the style.

SMELL: Caramel notes, toasted grain, grainy bread aromas with some floral and grassy hops in there.

TASTE: Follows the nose nicely. Caramel and toasted malts up front with some nice floral hop bitterness at the swallow. A big finish or bready sweetness, honey and caramel flavors, bitter floral hops and some grassy notes. Decently flavorful and enjoyable.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, smooth going down and finishes dry. Good feel.

OVERALL: I guess it's the anti-lager syndrome on this site, but this is a solid pale lager. No question about that. The nose and flavor were plenty enjoyable and well balanced, and the look was rather appealing as well. A good lager worth checking out if you're in France.

probably not as bad as indicated here, but a rather plain take on the style. the pour from the brown flip top bottle is the best feature, developing almost a nitro looking cream head above a bronze tinted liquid. the nose is sweet, like fresh baked desserts all lined up. pie crust flavors also abound, with minimal hop presence and a bit of unfermented sugar left over in the finish. nothing off or offensive in my bottle. not sure why such low scores for this here. medium body, it drinks pretty well, but the finish is quite sweet. fine carbonation and the head has lasted roughly the whole glass. not everyday I get to drink beer from france, so this was a treat, despite being a relatively ordinary brew.
