      Overall Impression (2½)
      Gusher! Mad dash to the sink! Golden, hint of amber, fairly high carbonation, big white head. Vegetal hop aroma. Malty, with moderate hop flavor. Actually not a bad balance, with a mild bitter finish. Some astringency. Jackson's Beer Companion says: "...the notion of calling a relatively hoppy lager a bitter has cropped up in Alsace, France..."
