25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white and dense head. Aroma is cornish. Sweet and dry cornish flavoured, light syrupy note. Bitter and dry flavoured finish.
250mL bottle Paris.
Me without a bottle opener had to resort to a more primative approach of opening this bottle.
Needless to say, I lost most of the contents and was thoroughly disappointed; overly sweet, skanky, corn/rice-like malts on an unnecessarily strong pale lager. MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2010
(bottle, 25cl, 6.1% abv, simply as “1664 Gold”) Clear, deep golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Sweet and slightly perfumed malty nose with a tinge of herbal hops far in the background. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a crispy carbonation. Pale malty, slightly doughy and subtle fruity taste; sweet and shy bitter finish. Clean but very bland brew. 07.I.10 Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
25cl bottle @ Nguyen Du brewpub, Saigon. Orange-gold with scant head. Phenolic nose, acetone, papaer with some fruitiness. Thin body, medium carbonation. Flavors are not so bad, with sweet grain. Not enough hops but ok. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Deep gold, but not too much head. Vaguely malty nose with light caramel. Maybe some spiciness. Very light, watery with hints of malt and glue.

29/11 A 0.25 l bottle from a Carrefour in Cannes. It poured golden body with bigger head. Weak lemony aroma. Sourish and some sweetish dusty flavor, grainy with touch of alcohol and some metal. Quite crappy. Sourish to sweetish finish, slightly lemony as well, also alcoholic. Too weak for an ESL yet too crappy beer. Drinkable though, although half of such small bottle is not hard to finish anyhow. pivnizub (10614) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2009
Petite bouteille (Merci, Stephane!):Golden to deep golden, small foamy layer, lazy carbonation; sweetish-grainy and papery nose; distinctive sweetish flavour, medium bodied; maize and marzipan in the sweet-bitter finish. Not that bad, but very simple....... Marko (5697) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle, like on the pic, purchased at a big Carrefour in Cannes. Shared with heavy who got it with me. Poured a golden body witha big thick white head that went away fast leaving lots of lacing. relatively lively carbonation. The nose is odd... hop with notes of veggies, dust, stale honeyish maltiness, light grain and alcohol. The taste is bitter and sweaty. A sweet maltiness is present, slightly heavier than expected. No real aftertaste, slightly watery. Meh. Not entirely bad but there are far better ESL’s (and this one can barely be called that with "just" 6.1%). MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle, 6.1% as "Gold". Weak grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Nice stable white head. The flavour is grainy and slightly vinous. Not rough, but not so interesting either. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2009
0.25l bottle, Auchan Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Clear deep golden colour with a mid-sized white head. Fruity-malty nose. Solid malty base with a touch of fruit and lots of pleasant Strisselspalt hops. Hints of caramel and toffee fudge. Quite nice!
