This is a nice beer. I went searching for Lowenbrau one evening and the clerk suggested this as an alternative. It is a nice golden colour with a light malty aroma. A very smooth beer with a very smooth taste that goes down easy, but has just enough bite to make you appreciate this beer. I did go back to the store the next day and tip the clerk for his suggestion.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 5, 2007
Canned 50cl. My version was at 4.2 ABV. A beautiful yellow beer with a decent head. Aroma of lemon, glue and white pepper with quite a lot of malt. Some lemon, cereals and glue in the taste. Slightly sour. This lager leaves a nice lacing. Some hints of banana? Underhopped, lacking in good hop presence at first impression, but then the finish turns out to be nicely biscuitty, balanced by a surprising crisp hoppinness. I think Kronenbourg produce very dinstinctive lagers which have some qualities.

Canned, Tried in Paris last winter. Nice yellow clolor with a good white head, some hops in aroma and low bitterness in flavor. Cerveja dourada com espuma densa, aorma com notas de lúpulo e sabor com baixo amargor..

Draft. Everything you look to avoid in a beer: Overpriced yet doesn’t distinguish itself from Coors Lite. Tiny bit of sweetness. Kinda stanky. Weak on everything that would qualify to hit your tongue as "taste." I see no reason to ever drink this again.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Draft-Center City Philly-Poured a Clear golden-slight reddish coloring with a very slight head. It had very light hops, and a interesting malt flavoring. Nothing overwhelming or outstanding, but worked pretty well. Would drink it again

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Draft. Clear golden color. Head was bubbly and white with poor retention. Typical pale lager...light grassy hops with a touch of cereal grain waved over it. Eh.

Not a bad lager but still lacks any depth or interesting flavour. Some malts and a touch of hops but overly skunky.

330 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a medium white head. The aroma has some malt and some bitterness to it. I really don’t see the big difference between this and the 1664. Maybe this is just a bit more common in France, had a few of this in France when noting else where available. Noting special, but noting wrong either. A refreshing standard macro pilsner. Comparing my notes I actually thing the 1664 is just a tiny little bit better.
