Itís really not that great, just another boring lager really, cost way too much in a paris bar (like £4) and wasnt worth a single penny of that. 1664 is a nicer, 1664 blanc is nicer still

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught. A yellow gold coloured lager with a little whitish head and some lace. The aroma is watery and grassy/glassy. The taste is watery and thin. There is a little malt base but nothing of any significance. Dull and common as muck.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. 4,2% Pours golden with a white head. Odd aroma; clearly had hops when it was poured, but stuck my nose in the glass and got a sourish, somewhat burnt, unbrewed coffee aroma. Coffee is usually a good thing in the aroma, but not in this case! Flavour is grainy and watery - thatís it. Oh wait - my bad; there are also some plastic notes and rice as it warms. Lifeís just too short...

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 Very common french blond beer. Not much to say about it. Itís quite watery but refreshing, a metallic aftertaste just like its older sister the "1664".

(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty, fully golden with a fairly decent head - and thats about it. Soft, very soft actually, with a very weak bitterness. But otherwise a classical, streamlined, commercial lager. Very uninteresting indeed. 040303

Paris - Light hoppy nose with a nice taste. I was surprised with the bite in this one. Pours gold and goes down smooth. Not bad for a "cheap" beer.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Emmits a skunky sweet aroma (yum). The flavour is a repeat of the nose with fizzy carbonation. Not exactly a tantalizing drink. Thanks to my friend Brian for picking me up this and a few others while in Amsterdam.

Didnít realize that this was a different beer from 1664 until I tried to order it in a brasserie, and ordered the wrong thing. Who knew 1664 could be considered upscale? This one was sweeter and much more delicious. Great for rounds. Had this, amongst other places, at 3 Ducks Hostel, 15e, Paris.
