Surprised by this French offering! Certainly a Belgian style blonde. With a sweet initial zing of the taste buds, it does leave a little harsh aftertaste, but certainly not too bitter.
The foamy head is quick to disintegrate, probably showing it's lack of heritage, but for the price, a decent and reasonably quaffable brew!
If I was into home brewing, which I'm not!, but if I were, and had produced this, then I would be pretty pleased with myself.

£2.49 from Lidl, 750ml corked and caged bottle.

Pours orangey (explains the "with caramel" on the label) blonde, small head. Bright.

Phenolic yeastyness gives way to a metallic irn-bru aroma. Interesting, albeit not particularly good.

Boiled sweets in flavour, mild bitterness, medium dry finish, average cab

It's ok

Beer bottle (75 cl.), tasted in 2013.

Appearance : golden color, with white foam head.
Smell :fruity & yeasty aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : malty and yeasty flavors.
Drinkability : an average beer in the French style "bière de garde". A copy of the Goudale (less ABV).
