Brings back memories of a perfect holliday in France. Perfect summerbeer, with a little bitterness. Very pale, with a short lasting head

Drinkable, light yellow body, with a light bitter taste. Nothing great, but does bring back some nice memories.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2004
Pretty bland lager. Slightly sweet. Corn in the taste. At least it was not skunky. Drinkable, but not recommendable.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 10, 2004
(15 May 04, Can) Light straw aroma, sparkling yellow body with a frothy white head. Lightly sweet and with a light bitter finish. Unremarkable. Body lightened with corn, and it shows.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2004
Hey, my first French beer! Pours an amber colour with a frothy head and good carbonation. Corn and hops nose with mild malt flavour. Refreshing, if unremarkable, not bad. (500mL can)

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Draught. Amber color. Fairly big white head with decent retention. Aroma is slightly malty, slightly sweet, little stale. Flavor is very similar, and it has a semi-dry finish with faint bitterness. Body is a watery. Tastes a lot like a weaker version of Fosters.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2005 Despite the rather blatant corn-iverous presence, they managed to make this drinkable -- long as you donít let it get too warm. I thought it was a bit sweet and all, but pleasant, and it had a great head on it. Ahh, 1664, that brings me back.

Rather nasty, in my opinion, but some girls I know in London have a big fetish for it. Rather bland.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2004
Iím surprised to see i havenít rated this one. But perhaps i just tried to block a bad memory. As caesar mentioned, only one score is appropriate for this beer: 1.664, which rounded up becomes 1.7.

I think this must be really really cold, before itís drinkable. I tried this one more than once (out of a can, from tap, from a bottle) and it wasnít very good. I think they named this beer 1664, so i could give this beer a 1.664. 1.6 comes close.
