1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from a Monoprix near Republic in Paris. Pours dark gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is grainy with some hints of grass. Flavor is grainy/bready with too much sugar for a miniscule amount of hop to balance. It’s not sweet, but for me it’s far from dry. Good thing: It’s not one of those fusil oil bombs.

Clear golden color, small white head. Green apple, alcohol and fusels in the aroma. Medium-bodied. Green apple and sweet maltyness plus alcohol in the flavor. Finish is short, just some metal and alcohol. Kronenbourg’s answer to malt liquer markets.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
31st Dec 2010: Another beer I bought in France (in a pack) for my son and his mates over Christmas 2010. I borrowed one to review.
Poured into my ’La Chouffe’ stemmed tulip.
Mid-range to lighter lager golden in colour, thin white head on top.
Almost odourless, hints of grain and hop if you sniff hard enough.
Not a lot to say about the taste really, typical cheap lager/pilsner nothingness. Just a wet liquid with hints of hops and alcohol to keep you going. It did however get a little bitter towards the end of each sip, not that it is a sweet tasting beer to start with.
Just a regular supermarket lager in my eyes and one I’ll not be buying again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur dorée, mousse moyenne de tenue moyenne. Un peu plus goutue que la 1664 classique gràce à ses notes maltées, un peu plus sucrée mais elle reste désaltérante. Trouvée à Super U - Vitry en Artois.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Golden with quite quickly dissipating head. Aroma is malty and alcoholic with some shy hops. Taste is malty and alcoholic, sharp and sourish, with next to no bitterness in the aftertaste. Worse than the regular 1664 version.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Franprix.
It’s better than regular 1664, but not that much better. At least it comes in a funny bottle that looks like some old school Michelob.
It’s nice and golden colored. Tastes like watered down Leffe with a cheap beer aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 25cl. A clear golden beer with low head. A quite sweet lager with good malty notes, nice body, hops character is low. A correct lager with good body just need more hops and bitterness.
