UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Pale golden color with foamy white head. Slight floral taste. Hoppy finish. Medium crispness. Fairly refreshing. Much more flavor than most premium lagers, although not as crisp as most

#25 on the 2006 Europe tour--Can’t believe I went all the way to France to drink this, but what the heck, it was a lovely French afternoon in Grenoble with a view of the Alps. It was pretty much a run of the mill lager. Nothing special, nothing worthwhile, but sitll it was a great afternoon.

Pale yellow, fizzy white head. Corny nose with some hay. Somewhat malty flavour with a little sweetness. Fairly hoppy at the end.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
How can a place like France, so close to the Belgium border, create such a concoction so horrible that thirsty nomads in the Saharan desert wouldn’t drink? I mean really. Someone in France make a beer that doesn’t taste like crap. Please. Aroma of grainy mildewy, rotten skunk. A lifeless, golden hue with no bubbles and little head. A watery grave of a mouthfeel, so thin that it’s water like. An unpalatable, malty sweet skunk that is just simply not pleasing at all. This would have been a drainpour had I not paid for this.

I’ve always wanted to try this beer, since we couldn’t get this in Illinois, so I drove across the border to Kenosha, Wisconsin to get a 6-pack. Bottled. Pours an amber body, and a frothy head. It had a strong skunky scent, so I prepared for the worst....tasted pretty good! Strong hoppy taste and an astringent finish. Pretty refreshing! I wasn’t disappointed. Now that I had Kro 1664, I could finally now drink "real beer."

33cl bottle. Very good standard lager, excellent with curry’s or anything else spicy that needs a decently strong beer to soothe the tastebuds.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Light malt and spice nose; dull body and light spicy finish, clean and pretty weak; not terrible, but another dull one.

another uninteresting lager, very easy to drink in large quantities. Should be cheaper

beerlady (556) - lucerne, SWITZERLAND - APR 26, 2006
bought on can head is not very impressive clear-golden smells hoppy and malty,smellssweet tasts hoppyer than it smells,but not very hoppy,tasts less sweet than it smells,some hidden bread-taste. aftertaste hoppy and a bit of bread-like taste too. not very complex flavours but refreshing,not bad.better than much other ,more booring lagers.good to drink on a warm summerday outdoors,perhaps with a meal from "alsace2(the french region where it comes from),for example "flammkuchen",but not a beer to drink in the evening with good friends for discussing about the taste.
