Poured yellow with a big head that didn't stay around past the previews. Skunky aroma. Light malty taste with acidic finish. Crisp, yet somehow dull.

Clear body with a nitro look about it... Not sure this was used as it wasn't quite a nitro looking beer or tap, maybe some variation thereof? Some hop in the aroma, smooth palate (like all nitro's and hence part of the reason I suspect this was a nitro pour), Some fruit and some hop in the flavour but all in all a pretty non interesting beer.
I don't personally find this style of palate conducive to a "hot day beer" and this has none of the qualities I'd want in a "cold day beer" so I doubt I'll be paying for this again...

Catharsis (9) - North London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2004 does not count
Bottled and tap. One of the brands dubiously categorised in this country as a 'premium' lager, the taste of this beer is somewhat lacking, even when compared to the brands it sits alongside at the bar. (Stella, Grolsch etc). Sweet with a definate hint of malt, no real aroma and generally a watered down taste. Fine if you're just 'downing a few', but I wouldn't want to sit with this for any length of time. Canned, don't waste your time.

1664 a good year, and one that I will never know. That is unless I read up on that particular year in text books and other historical sources. This beer was already poured when i ordered it at the tavern? Interesting? Nonetheless a fair brew, and nothing overwhelmingly intimidating about it. Cheers!

Kronenbourg 1664 is nothing but a light lager with a corny taste and aroma. I wasn't expecting much from this beer anyway.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2004
crystal clear golden body with thin white top. Light, clean nose with dmso and a funky light damaged prevalence. Nothing much good here. Perhaps a bit of floral tone among the corn. Syrupy sweet, almost like a sprite soda. smooth effervescent and dry.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2004
Not much to talk about here. Poured a thick frothy head that lasted a bloody year before going away. Too bad I was disappointed after the wait. TO me this was a combination of a malt liquor, and a watery beer, which is better than a malt liquor, but not by much.

skunky aroma, clear gold, chewy, skunky and corny, would go good with McDonalds

swiseman (426) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 28, 2004
a very thick, frothy head that seemed almost as tall as the beer. leaves a lot of lacing behind; typical tasting lager that goes down like water, but still leaves behind a distinct aftertaste

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Very light yellow/straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma is a bit lemony, yeasty (Wonder Bread) and a touch floral. Well-balanced, mild flavor. A touch of butterscotch and lemon. Light-bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.
