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.

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.......

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%).

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
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.

Quack-Duck (9119) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2009
0.25l bottle, Auchan Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Clear deep golden colour with a mid-sized white head. Fruity-malty nose. Solid malty base with a touch of fruit and lots of pleasant Strisselspalt hops. Hints of caramel and toffee fudge. Quite nice!

shrubber85 (10590) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle (labelled 1664 Gold). Sour milk, barley malt, and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head - extremely effervescent. Slightly sweet barley malt flavor with a light hops/alcohol finish. Decent for an ESL - pretty smooth.

Picked up a pack labelled as "Kronenbourg Gold" at my local supermarket. Very nice appearance, good pour, nice head and dark gold colour. Not much on the nose, just some grains and alcohol. Taste is slight syrup, malts, barely noticeable caramel and then some alcohol. Really not that great.

TheDog (586) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle 25 cl. from Monoprix Paris. Golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma and taste of dry roasted malts and a bit sweet fruity mouthfeel. Nice and well balanced strong lager.

Dorqui (2177) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,25L. Shining, light fraught yellow color. Thin head of medium resistance. Light aroma of dampen cereals, dry malt and stum. Mostly barren taste with a determined bitter. Important and overbearing alcohol content on the end.

Fairly good - not too different from the bog-standfard "1668" version, just a touch sweeter and stromger a mon avis. The French are cowards and smell, but I suppose they aint all bad as they make the best wine du monde and can brasser some decentish beers also. The Australians could learn a thing or too from the Frogs as their wine is shit and beers stink!
