Too thin, watery. Not enough body or flavor. I thought this was the weakest of the 4-variety pack that I bought. I would not drink this beer again but it's better than Bud.

Pours a straw coloured body with a good head and some lacing. The scent is largely based on faint barley malt, with not much besides a cereal factor coming up. It has a fairly crisp and clean taste, again not really lending much besides maltiness and some light citrus character (think dilute orange juice, nothing like a hoppy citrus tone). Overall very smooth, and probably an alright beer for a warm day, but not my favourite.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased at a corner store in Quebec- Montreal for $1.80 341ml bottle

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that id gone in seconds. Very light gold colour and filtered clear.

S- Not a lot but some hops and malt

T- Watery and weak. Very much a corn beer. Not a good one at all

M- Watery and weak

O- Not a fan. Don't like it and will not buy again.

Food Pairing

This corn brew would go well with........ anything you pair a Corona with has this brew is just like a Corona but a tad more flavor.

Enjoy

L alchimiste Claire Blonde Micro Beer.

The look of it: Not much to say: Golden yellow color. Very light with lots of carbonation but not head to it.

The smell of it: A smell of apple. Very pleasant !

The taste of it: Grassy hops with a punch of apple to it. Once again very pleasant. But the aftertaste is awful, like what the hell. It just destroy the nice smooth taste that u had in the beginning. It takes a good 2 minutes before you are getting a pleasant taste inside your mouth.

So overall would i recommend it ? Sure, there is nothing wrong with that beer, expect this after taste. I mean if you eat something with it, you won t even notice it but for a Micro Beer I personally think there is better. But as a regular beer, this beer is worth trying !

Poured from a 341ml bottle.

Pours a sickly yellow body that seems listless and lifeless. Not much head and lacing. Flavor isn't much, has a malt base but lacks anything interesting. Nothing offensive about this but it's boring and offers nothing amongst a plethora of well craft low ABV beers.

Bottle: Poured a clear light golden color lager with a small white fizzy head with light retention and no lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes is quite bland. Taste is also dominated by light bland cereal notes. Body is about average for style. Not much to report here as this is a pretty standard light lager with maybe a tad more cereal notes than usual.

Served from a 341ml bottle

A: Pale straw color. Fairly minimal amount of head but lacing was good.

S: A tad of apple on the smell. Slight bready aromas are also present.

T: Bready/doughy malts. Some grassy hops help balance out the beer. A bit of that displeasing apple cider smell was also available in the taste and while pretty slight was not that pleasant. Simple in complexion but still decent tasting. Very clean and lager like.

M: Pretty thin. Carbonation is fizzy and bubbly as it hits the mouth. Perhaps a bit more than I would like but nothing too excessive.

O: Not a horrible beer overall. Not something I would buy again or really enjoyed trying but it was okay. Nothing stood out but nothing dragged it down to far either.

Beer is a clear, very light blonde. Small white head. Retention mediocre, some lacing.

Smell is malty, toasty. Light grassy hops. Pretty simply, not great.

Taste is light. Toasty malt flavour is most prominent, as in the nose. A bit grassy. Dry cereal. Aftertaste not very pleasant. Balanced with a very slight bitterness.

Beer is very light bodied, rather watery. Moderate to low carbonation.

Overall, not particularly good. Very simple. Not unenjoyable but certainly not something that begs to be drunk.
