An acceptable mass-produced lager! Straw coloured with a white head and highly carbonated; full in the mouth with some bitterness and a hint of pears; a sweet aftertaste.

Good all around lager. Goes with food or by itself. Quite full and not at all bitter. Drinkable.

Bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into lager glass - Pours light gold with a 2.5 finger white head; Yeast and hops to the nose; A little yeast on the initial taste; Clean and inoffensive backtaste; Medium dry palate; Not much carbonation but a little; Not bad at all! Very drinkable and smooth going down. Not offensive in any way, but also lacking any real complexity.

The body poured a pale yellow with a big whit head. The smell was hoppy and slighty bitter. Taste is a light floral and nothing else. There was no after taste. You could drink this beer all day long as it has little too no flavor. I will say the bottle was cool.

Not bad! Full flavoured beer, I didn’t know the French made beer, very enjoyable beer! Well done, as good as any other mass produced beers.

Pours a pale golden color with a decent size fluffy white head. The aroma is light and slightly light malty aroma and some graininess. The flavor is light somewhat grainy with very light bitter bight and light watery finish.

Nice golden color, with a quickly fading, slightly lacing head. Theres absolutely nothing special about this lager, but it certainly doesnt offend, either. Clean flavor, with only a slight bitterness. Would pair well with many lightly flavored dishes.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2006
I was unfamiliar with Kronenbourg, so I figured this would be a German beer. When the waiter at the Alibi Room brought it to the table, he said think of it as the French Budweiser. So, I took my first taste with my expectations recalibrated to the low end of the scale, and surprisingly its not all that bad. All the traditional pale lager things are going on here, but there is also an initial hint of creamy sweetness.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 This is about the best of the mass produced European lagers that are freely avaliable in most UK pubs. Typical amber lager colour. Fairly strong tasting, slightly creamy and not too sweet like some of your US lagers, but nothing special, though much better than filth like Fosters, Carling, Carlsberg etc.. Overall, pretty average - I would rather seek out a pub that serves decent (English) real ale (i.e. Fullers or Shepherd Neame) or bottled German Weissbier.
