yellow malt and fizzy carbonation, replacement for ginger ale. Hey, carbs but less calories and more food value. Comparable to Moosehead.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Canned - 500ml. Limpid golden body with a fair bubbly head. Average malty aroma with some subtle hints of pine. Taste is mostly watery with some weak hoppy flavors. Short bitter final. This unexciting beer is France’s Budweiser. So if you go there, never lose your time and Euros on that stuff...

I only bought this beer because I thought the bottle was cool and I wanted to take a picture of it for the site!
Hmmm, the bottle is Green… Frogs are Green?!
Pours a crystal clear golden body and a large white head. The aroma is skunky with pilsner malt. Note of lemon in the flavor, tart skunk hoppy bite… this beer Stinks! Hmmm, Frogs stink?! This tasts like I’m drinking the water after I just boiled a head of cabbage! The bottle is the best part of this beer…. Blaaaa!

On tap. Poured a clear yellow with a white head. Not too much aroma, but a crisp flavor that wasn’t too bad.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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
