Kronenbourg 1664

Kronenbourgh 1664 is, according to the stylish 500mL blue, white, and red can, "La Première Bière Fraçaise". A pale lager, 1664 hails from Strasbourgh, France, where it is brewed by Brasseries Kronenbourgh. It contains 5% alcohol and pours a bright, cheery pale golden hue. 1664 is crowned with a white head and displays lively carbonation.

Like a classic Euro-lager, 1664 has an aroma characterized by grass and grain. It's flavour has some gentle corn sweetness which gives way to a pleasing bitter finish. It's quite crisp and refreshing, even for a lager. While the aftertaste gets high marks, I'd like a bit more from the initial flavour--it's fine, but it could be a little richer. Still, this is a nice little bière out of France.  It's well worth your time if you're in the mood for something easy drinking.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
