1664 Gold : un caractère en or. 1664 Gold , c’est une bière blonde de caractère avec une richesse d’arômes en bouche unique. 1664 Gold s’apprécie pour sa robe dorée aux reflets cuivrés, sa rondeur en bouche et ses arômes de fruits jaunes. Ces caractéristiques uniques sont le résultat d’une double fermentation, qui permet aux ingrédients de la bière de révéler pleinement tous leurs arômes.

Note: Rebranded Gold de Maître Kanter.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle 25 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Looks suspiciously like "Kronenbourg Gold de Maître Kanter" almost the same label and bottle shape and ABV is the same. Sweet malty nose. Medium body, sweet malt and a little caramel. There’s a discreet metalic edge. A decent drinker. 080910

(Bottle 25 cl) 6,1% ABV. Fully golden with a thick and rather stable head. Quite full-bodied with a malty sweetness and yet a dry bitter finish. Apparently fermented twice which I believe is rather unusual for a lager type. 300503

Muggus69 (1867) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2010
250mL bottle Paris. Me without a bottle opener had to resort to a more primative approach of opening this bottle. Needless to say, I lost most of the contents and was thoroughly disappointed; overly sweet, skanky, corn/rice-like malts on an unnecessarily strong pale lager.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2010
(bottle, 25cl, 6.1% abv, simply as “1664 Gold”) Clear, deep golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Sweet and slightly perfumed malty nose with a tinge of herbal hops far in the background. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a crispy carbonation. Pale malty, slightly doughy and subtle fruity taste; sweet and shy bitter finish. Clean but very bland brew. 07.I.10

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2009
25cl bottle @ Nguyen Du brewpub, Saigon. Orange-gold with scant head. Phenolic nose, acetone, papaer with some fruitiness. Thin body, medium carbonation. Flavors are not so bad, with sweet grain. Not enough hops but ok.

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Deep gold, but not too much head. Vaguely malty nose with light caramel. Maybe some spiciness. Very light, watery with hints of malt and glue.

heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 7, 2009
29/11 A 0.25 l bottle from a Carrefour in Cannes. It poured golden body with bigger head. Weak lemony aroma. Sourish and some sweetish dusty flavor, grainy with touch of alcohol and some metal. Quite crappy. Sourish to sweetish finish, slightly lemony as well, also alcoholic. Too weak for an ESL yet too crappy beer. Drinkable though, although half of such small bottle is not hard to finish anyhow.

Petite bouteille (Merci, Stephane!):Golden to deep golden, small foamy layer, lazy carbonation; sweetish-grainy and papery nose; distinctive sweetish flavour, medium bodied; maize and marzipan in the sweet-bitter finish. Not that bad, but very simple.......

Marko (4648) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle, like on the pic, purchased at a big Carrefour in Cannes. Shared with heavy who got it with me. Poured a golden body witha big thick white head that went away fast leaving lots of lacing. relatively lively carbonation. The nose is odd... hop with notes of veggies, dust, stale honeyish maltiness, light grain and alcohol. The taste is bitter and sweaty. A sweet maltiness is present, slightly heavier than expected. No real aftertaste, slightly watery. Meh. Not entirely bad but there are far better ESL’s (and this one can barely be called that with "just" 6.1%).

Bottle, 6.1% as "Gold". Weak grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Nice stable white head. The flavour is grainy and slightly vinous. Not rough, but not so interesting either.
