BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Another example of mediocrity by the Kronembourg brewery. If this is the only beer they served in a "café", you should order a glass of wine.

French people know why they serve it with "sirop de pêche", "sirop de citron" (poor men's desperados)and other flavors. Then it actually tastes quite well.

Blond, dry, simple, just good for a hot summer day. Less weak than many others.

abbotsampson (15) - PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2003
As far as lagers go, this one is pretty solid, but a little too sweet in my opinion. The color is a rich golden-yellow with a nice head. The aroma is sweet and malty, as is the taste. The finish is crisp, but rather flat... not really much taste at the back of the mouth. Overall, a cheap staple lager... nothing to write home about.

woodruff (16) - ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2003
Always been a good French staple. Made a concerted attempt to get a major foothold in the UK a few years ago (unlike 1664 which has been around for ages) where it never seems to taste quite as good as on the continent. Whether this is just becasue it's always sunnier there or not is a debatable point. Nice amber lager colour to it, with a slightly hoppy nose. Without having any particularly great facets, this is always a beer I'm happy to quaff and I've never yet got bored of it on holiday.

Eirikur (372) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 17, 2003
HEAD: Dense, persistent head,White. COLOUR: Bright golden-yellow. NOSE: Dominant malty-cereal nose Hops, fruit and yeast, with hints of honey and pepper. AROMA: Medium intensity Dominant malt-cereal flavours Fruity, hints of liquorice, hops and pepper. PALATE: Well balanced, with slight tanginess. BODY: Good, smooth body, slight sparkle. FINISH: Short finish, smooth, well-defined bitterness with hints of malt.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2003
Bottle brought back from from France, was 4.5%ABV rather than 4.7%. Light malt nose. Light bodied malt flavour a refreshing beverage. Puts the main stream swill over here to shame, why don't they sell this stuff instead of the mass market 1664 we get here??!

fly (1419) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2003
How times can change one. Never held it in high regard, but thought much more of it years ago. Good, but rather watery and thin in the finish. Some good flavor in there with a decent balance.

YogiBeera (2500) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Although we sat outside on a nice place in spring in Paris in the sun and ate a Beer-Cheese fondue -it had no positve influence on the rating of this brew. Grainy nose, taste and loo,. Watery finish.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 10, 2003
Golden colour, decent head. The taste is dominated by malty sweetness with an hoppy finish. Light and drinkable, but the flavour is too much weak.
