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 (7971) - 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.

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.

[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.

Ernest (6199) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, cereal), trace hops (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Blech.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2004
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.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2004
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!
