Boris Organic

Boris Organic doesn't specifically state what type of beer it is, so I'm going to have to classify it myself.  Based on its almost clear yellow-gold colour, considerable carbonation and quick-dissipating fluffy white head, I'm going to call it a pale lager.
Boris hails from Saverne, France.  It is sold in 500mL cans and contains 5% alcohol.  It has a very mild wheat aroma.  This deceptively faint scent masks a relatively large flavour.  Boris has a sweet corn taste at the front end that gives way to wheatiness and, eventually, to slight bitterness.  The aftertaste is slightly sour and quite yeasty.
 All told, Boris Organic is not bad for a pale lager.  It has a pleasant flavour and it looks nice.  I'd like a touch more carbonation and a slightly smoother aftertaste, but I'd buy this one again in spite of these relatively minor complaints.  Additionally, Boris is all the cooler for its excellent packaging that features a dramatic silhouette of a pitchfork-wielding farmer working his fields.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
