Dacrza (513) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: June 21, 2014... GLASSWARE: Blanche de Chambly pokal... OCCASION: Willow Lake orientation day...APPEARANCE: cascading bubbles round out a clear golden body; thick white head--exhibits excellent white cloudy lacing... AROMA: fragrant Saaz with soft lemongrass and some wheat yeasts--fresh and energizing (and unexpected)... PALATE: soft, almost creamy champagne-like (unavoidable comparison?) and smooth; light, clean, dry aftertaste... TASTE: a bit maltier than anticipated; refreshing with some fruitiness and honey accents... OVERALLL: a surprisingly strong profile for a beer--a French beer, at that--I had long forgotten since our trip abroad in ’03..this beer poured fresh, presented well, cleansed the palate as a pilsner is apt to do, and offered just enough flavor to elicit a satisfied night....

Basic enough lager but it meets the bitter/sweet balance quite well. As these sort of beers go it’s one of my preferred ones.

Hoe kan ik deze nog niet hebben genoteerd, daar werd je in Frankrijk werkelijk mee doodgegooid in de supermarkt pilsgouden witte kraag, vrij zwakke pils, moutig en siroopzoetigheid, iets smaakvoller dan de gemiddelde slechte pils, maar niet zo interessant,

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Review: Can of Kronenbourg Pale Lager, 5.5%ABV Kronenbourg 1664 is France’s No.1 selling beer, and a nice refreshing beer with a lot of interesting flavours. The appearance is a lovely clear amber colour, with a nice frothy white head. The appearance has the wow factor, it looks really like a beer you definitely want to drink. The smell is not strong but you can get both a nice faint sweetness and a fruity aroma off the beer. Taste has a mixture of different flavours from fruit, sweet caramel malts, honey, to a sweet malt taste at the start followed up with a mild hop bitterness. All in all a nice crafted beer and quite an enjoyable drinking experience mainly due, in my opinion, to the complexity of the flavours. Truly a well balanced beer.
