So this is "France’s #1 Beer?" says the poste. Now my question is "Why would a poster lie to a person?" freser burn is the domanant aroma, with a under note of, honestly, human urine. It’s weird, the aroma deffonatly has a hint of urine. Pours a clear bright pale yellow, micro head, if you sneese you’ll miss it. palate is watery, almost no carbonation. On to the taste. MILD MILD FLAVOUR. domonant grassyness, thickly sweet malt, tiny hit of pourly grown middle america style hops. aftertaste is thick, skunky hop, and more of that syropy sweet. All in all, this is a fine blond lager, just another macro for the masses, but not even worth the armstrain to pop the cap for most beer conosours. Cheers. {ps, this one is rather pricey, and not worth it at all}

Same as most american macro beers, nothing much to say about it that could help to describe it.

I saw the cans and broken bottles of this beer over and over again in the gutters of Paris, so I knew it had to be good. I had it on tap at the Deux Moulins (the Two Windmills - where "Amelie" was filimed). A fun beer to order "Je voudrais une Mille Six-Cent Soixante Quatre, SVP". It was served in the peroper 1664 glass . Gold clear color with a thick head that dissipated quickly. No real discernable aroma. Mild, clean taste but not much flavor. While drinking this, I was staring at myself in the mirrored walls (we were sitting where the tabac booth was in the movie), something struck me. It was either the mirrors there, or it was the beer, but, I came to realize that, damn, I look good.

Bottle. Pours a decent bubbly head that fades quickly. Some lacing. Smells is of grass with some malty notes. Taste is thin and bitter. Slight malt flavor with non-existant hops. Kronenbourg must mean "Miller Lite" in French because that’s what this is. A french macro.

Pour is yellow with a white head. Aroma is only slightly skunk out of the green bottle. Flavor is corn with a sweet aftertaste. The best thing about this beer is the cool raised glass bottle.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle. Clear golden color, lots of bubbles and small white head that comes to a ring. Corn aroma. Taste of corn, pilsner like, not much taste. High carbonation, dry finish, moderate palate. Bière de couleur doré clair, avec un mince collet qui ne forme qu’un anneau autour du verre,^pas mal de bulles dans sa robe. Odeur de mais. Au goût, c’est le mais, pas différente des autres pilsner, pas tellement de goût mais, elle reste quand même assez longtemps en bouche. Co2 élevé, fini sec.

It’s in a green bottle and it’s from France, so it’s starting out with 2 strikes against it right off the bat. With that said though, it is drinkable - nothing special, just not as bad as I had expected.

small white head that doesn’t last. The taste is slightly sweet, but mostly its watery in taste and palate. I’d still rather drink this then the big three.

Gold color with aroma of some malt, hops, big thiols, some funky esters. Tastes and finishes with a mixed bag of craptacular elements. Utterly forgettable, either in 1664 or the present.
