Indra (2604) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Bottled. Doesn’t possess so much an aroma as an odor, skunky and very bland, perhaps some faint vegetal hop. Pale golden color with a slight, fine head and an almost total lack of lacing. Flavor is dry and somewhat malty with a crisp, lightly bitter finish. Not much depth here, this is basically your quintessential "fizzy yellow beer". Comparable to something like Heineken.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2004
Bottle: Good, frothy, white head that lasted well with good lacing. Clear, pale-gold colour. Initially a very ’organic’ nose that I couldn’t place as anything other than horse manure. However, it quickly turned into a fresh herbacious hop aroma. Tasted of mildly malty though somewhat thin. Some lemon notes, but really not any depth or complexity. Nothing special, but very easy to drink.

skortila (4463) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2004
Good hoppy aroma, perhaps a little too sweet with a hint of malts. Pale, golden coloured with a rocky, medium whithe lasting head. Taste is hoppy, bitter, metallic, watery. Smooth and watery palate.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 Oct, 2002. Bottle.Kronenbourg is France’s largest brewer and was founded, as the name of this lager suggests, in 1664. The brew itself dates from 1952. Kronenbourg has, since 2000, been part of the huge Scottish & Newcastle brewing group. This is a very dry lager with a nice balance of sweetness and hops. The flavour is very laid back and needs to be teased out, but there are fruits present, a damp brown bread maltiness, and a suggestion of honey. [1.9]
May, 2004: Keg, POW, Rochester. Invited to a game of Bat & Trap (Kent pub game played since the 14th century - an early form of cricket) in the pub almost opposite our house, which we don’t use because it doesn’t serve cask ale, gave me an opportunity to do a head to head with Fosters and 1664. The 1664 was clearly the winner - it has a pleasant creamy mouthfeel, a little sweetness and a delicate but crisp and effective hop bite in the finish. [2.3]
Oct, 2004: Pression - Des Fleurs, Nimes. Corner bar by the elevated railway station. Some thin pale malt flavour. Lots of gas. Very soft minimal grassy hops. Complete garbage. [1.8]
Average score: 2.0

Maltier than many draught lagers sold in UK but still watery, headless and unexciting. Quenches thirst but so does plain water...

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
taste is dry and crisp but thin. A summer quencher, maybe. the color falls somewhere between a proper lager and a pils. Aroma is pleasant but understated.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2004
On draught (pression) at Planet Hollywood in Paris. Clear bubbly gold color with a thick and rocky white head. Thin and sticky lacing. The aroma is mildly hoppy. Light and crisp body, with a decent amount of hops in the flavor. The finish is lightly bitter. Better than expected.

Minamizawa (40) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2004
A pilsner with a hopsy aroma. The taste is somehow fresh and a bit sour, and so is the aftertaste.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2004
Light color with a light body remenesant of Grolsch and Heine. No real good features about this beer.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - APR 1, 2004
[on tap] Well, I had to spend some time in this bar, and the only beer they had was Kronenbourg... It isn't really different from the bottled version. The body is slightly darker than the usual lager, and the taste is somewhat sweetish and corny. Unoffensive and drinkable. Better than no beer at all.
