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.

Ungstrup (33993) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010
Lovely new beer that I found in Monoprix in Vaise, Lyon. Golden, no wonder, with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, metal, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and honey, leading to adry finish.

Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, minerals, and straw. The flavor is sweet - cloyingly, with notes of bread, sulphur, malt, and a bit of caramel. The finish is lightly bitter.

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
Earlier Rating: 8/2/2005 Total Score: 2.7
(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

Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is grass, grains, some slight alcohol as well as some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is caramel, toffee, some alcohol and mild tsweetness. Actually not that harsh.

harrisoni (16928) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Can from Carrefour and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. OK strong lager. Some hop and dryness on the finish. OK bitterness. Some malt in the mouth. Bit of wet dog on the aroma. Flavour is ok. OK.

Can 500ml (La Fayette, Marseille, BB 02/2013)
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.

Oakes (15292) - 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.

MiP (15172) - 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.

bhensonb (13826) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2012
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.
