But d’une canette, pas fameux, j’imaginerais que ce serait pire en bouteille (verte). Très faible, peu de goût. C’est dans la même catégorie qu’Heineken, une importée ordinaire dans une bouteille à la mode. Attrape nigo!

Sten (731) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2010 First rating thursday, february 02, 2006: 4/2/5/2/8: overall 2.1. A golden coloured beer with a fast diminishing head. An hoppy aroma (but not good). The taste is a bit malty and sweet. (Bottle 25cl Belgian version brewed by Alken-Maes). Rererate: This time a bottle brewed in France. Golden coloure, fast diminishing but not total disappearing. Aroma is like the regular kronenbourg but much lighter. Flavour also lighter and a bit fresher. Moderately malt and sweet, light body. (Bottle 75cl)

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Pale, skunky, and boring. Slightly better than the mass produced American lagers. I was in an old bar on Central in AZ called The George and Dragon. This elderly Scottsman sitting next to me suggested I try the Kronenbourg in a bomber, he called it the kronic. I asked the old chap why the name sake. He went on to tell me they call it Kronic because if you drink too much of it, you’ll feel kronic the next morning. No shit ? BUAGH!!

Delirium (645) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2006 Draught. Pours golden with a thin head that quickly disappears. Weak aroma of slightly sweet pale malt and some citrus. Flavor is slightly sweet and malty with a small hint of hops in the finish. Thin and not very complex, but at least it’s clean and refreshing, and nothing stands out as objectionable.

TheBeerLover (1026) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Kroenbourg 1664 pours to a beautiful, bright, deep golden color, with a bubbly white head that fades, and a very lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is slightly herbal and grassy with some crisp, slightly sweet pale malt flavors coming through. The palate is firm, with some nice touches of pale malt flavors on the tongue. The body is round and clean on this beer making it very drinkable. Kroenbourg 1664 finishes slightly sweet malty up front, then ends a touch grassy with a sting of carbonation. This beer comes in at about 5.2% abv, so it is the type of beer you could have a few of with your meal.

Had in French St Martin, the guy who served it to me was all proud that I was drinking a French beer. Which proves my point, they are arrogant about nothing. This beer pours out a yellow color with really no head. Sweet malty aroma with maybe a bit of hop. Not bad to drink in the warm weather and when the beer is cold. Flavor is a bit watery, but it isn’t terrible, but not like the guy brought it up to be.

25cl bottle. Golden color, not much of a head at all. The french definitely make better wine. Not bad though

French : stick to wine, your good at that, leave the beer to people who know what they are doing! Good call. Still better than US domestic tho... at least on tap in Geneve or Nice.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2005
This beer tastes like Becks Light. Nice gold color. Head fades to a thin layer quickly. Flavor and aroma nothing special. This beer actually tasted better than I expected. I probably won’t by it again, but if someone gave me one, I drink it.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2005
Golden colour, rather small, diminishing white head. Fresch malty aroma, smouth taste, rather bitter finish. Nothing special, just another international lager
