COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Depuis plus de trois siècles, nos brasseurs cultivent de génération en génération leur attachement à la bière. Née de leur passion pour le métier, Kronenbourg - Sélection des Brasseurs est le résultat de leur travail à la recherche d’une bière à la fois fraîche et savoureuse. Forts de leur savoir-faire, les brasseurs ont spécifiquement sélectionné des variétés de malts et de houblons aromatiques, réputées pour leur plus grande qualité gustative. Moelleuse en bouche, de fine pétillance, elle a un goût riche, une alliance de notes maltées et fruitées. Fraîchement brassée à Obernai, au coeur de l’Alsace, Kronenbourg - Sélection des Brasseurs est une bière unique reflétant le travail de nos brasseurs.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a small, off-white head. Rather malty, buttery toffee aroma with a touch of fruityness. The flavor is luckily more on the fruity side, the buttery toffee toned down, but still not very good. Drinkable though, although I won’t repeat it. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Short buttery and fruity finish. Definitely not my favorite. 110128

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 1, 2011
Can from the St. Denis Carrefour. Somewhat darker amber-gold body. Sweet pleasant malty nose, light sweet fruity malty taste, very light herbal hoppy bitterness. Nothing offensive except maybe light metal. A very good malty macro lager.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle 25 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Clear golden with a rough white head. Strange aroma of solvents and brewing cereal. Medium body, brewing cereal and sulphur - very unclean. No real hops. 280111

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2010
Bottle round the Jenners. Gold with a white slick, aroma of hay and cooked veg, wheat. Flavour breadstick, cereals, corny softness, slight card. Burning carbonation, but no visible bubbles. Possible witchcraft. Doesn’t offend.

Quack-Duck (7778) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2010
can from Auchan Ilkirch-Graffenstaden. Clear golden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty-hoppy nose with a touch of woody sourness.Solid malty flavours dominate, slightly hoppy with a touch of fruit. Rather pleasant, much better than expected.

jaghana (3753) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - AUG 30, 2010
Can 33cl. A clear yellow beer with normal white head. Smell is a bit perfumed and on classic lager. Aroma is better than the usual Kro, good malt flavor and hopy. But there is a spicy, peppery hops finish which is not very nice, hints of dry hoping. Yes nothing exceptional but more drinkable than the usual one.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 21, 2010
This one has started popping up at supermarkets around Paris - label is slightly classier than the normal Kronenbourg. Pours a nice gold with very solid head, good storm of carbonation in there. Aroma of corn, wood, wheat, and malts. Taste is mostly malts and sweet corn or lemon, slightly watery, not syrupy. Something better than usual from Kronenbourg but nothing spectacular.
