What does $100 USD (roughly 65 Euros) buy you in Paris, France? 2 bottles of French wine and 3 beers (ratings when I feel like it), with this brew as the fill gap for the remaining amount of money- many thanks to my friend Gary. 75 cl screwtop green bottle poured into shaker- poured transparent thin golden yellow, paper thin white head that actually had some lacing, very little carbonation. Strong aroma of wheat/barley malt, some sourness in the nose. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt comes through cleanly, little if any sweetness which is wonderful, finish has a mild bitter note but otherwise is clean and rather refreshing. Very nice for the bottom end of my 3 brews... and a pale lager at that! khatley (1) - USA - JUN 2, 2008 does not count

Can. Slightly sour barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Slightly sweet barley malt flavor. A standard pale lager - nothing unpleasant. Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 9, 2008
25cl bottle. Pours pale clear yellow with a white foam. Grassy & grainy malt flavor. A bit of sweetness. Thin body with a medium carbonation. Very decent pale lager. Used to drink this right from the bottle when I was younger! presidentchaos (21) - Worthing, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
I figured that a Kronenbourg was the same, no matter what the label. This version is distinctive with its metal smell & taste, despite being in a glass bottle!

My first though upon opening this can was, "well, that’s an unfortunately strong aroma." Powerful metallic smell along with half-blackened banana peels, bubblegum (still in the wrapper) , stale baguette and granulated white sugar. Medium golden hue, perfectly clear with no head to speak of, just a transparent, white foam on top of the beer. The flavour isn’t nearly as monstrously terrible as the aroma, thankfully. Grainy, with some bananas up front, and it fades into a slightly peppery finish. Eh, there’s a little bit of banana peel-like astringency in the finish, though...and some aspirin aroma/flavour as it warms. Light to medium bodied with a texture that clings just a little too long in the mouth. Moderate, harsh carbonation. Riddled with flaws, no truly redeeming qualities expect for it’s lack of retch-inducing aromas and flavours. 50cl can, Duvel tulip, bbe 06/2008, listed @ 4.2% abv.

Can. Aroma is cheap hops and tin can. Quite possibly worse than the 1664. Flavor is dishwater and old pennies. jbuzz (831) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Not much here. Light with no real head. Very smooth (as water is) Looks better than it tastes. Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2007
Light amber coloured beer with some small white head and little carbonation. Somewhat sweet herby malty aroma. Medium palate. Finish is light bitter, herby. Not bad. AWS9 (704) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Can, Paris. Became very obvious to me that France is a wine country rather than a beer country. Take big gulps at first, as once it loses its carbonation, a real beast of flavour hits you. Awful beer.
