Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-02-2002

1664 est une bière blonde de grande origine issue du savoir-faire de nos Maîtres Brasseurs depuis 1664, année au cours de laquelle Jérôme Hatt, fondateur de Brasseries Kronenbourg, a obtenu sa maîtrise de brasseur et repris la célèbre brasserie du Canon à Strasbourg.

1664 se distingue par le raffinement de son goût et l'élégance de sa bouteille au design élancé. Le houblon aromatique subtil et racé qu'elle intègre dans sa composition est le Strisselspalt, le "caviar du houblon" qui lui confère un goût unique.

Ses reflets dorés et le subtil mariage des arômes de fruits mûrs, de malt et de houblon savamment sélectionnés, permettent à 1664 d’avoir un équilibre et une amertume généreuse en bouche.

The European version of Coors light is not for me. Maybe I'm still in my beer snob stage. But I do not drink light beer for the taste. When I drink beer I drink for the rich, malty, maybe chocolatey or nutty tastes. Obviously that's not Kronenberg, but I tried it to try it and my suspicions were verified. Sorry for the rating pulling it down, but I gotta keep it 100.

A light tasting lager. Very little carbonation and not much upfront taste. A smidge of a bitter beer aftertaste. Decent flavor and enjoyable.

Leave it to the french to do a trashy blonde euro lager with some modicum of style.

Purchased at The Beer Store for just under $3.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a nice white head that stays for a minute or two before it's gone. Clear medium gold color.

S- Not much here

T- Got a bit of a bubble gum hint to it. Nice and malty. Pretty complex for a lager. Nice beer!

M- Very creamy for a lager.

O- Very good beer. Will see what it tastes like on tap if I find it

Food Pairing

This nice little beer went well with...... Roasted chicken

Enjoy

As mentioned in other reviews this is easily the best of the mass produced on the style and always a safe bet, as it is widely available here in Europe.

Dateless 11.2 ounce bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Brilliantly clear straw-colored body with a thick, frothy white head. Good retention and intermittent chunks of lacing.

Luckily this bottle appears to have missed being light struck. A bit of hay and straw flavored graininess. A bit of bread dough and herbal notes with a surprisingly strong hoppy aroma of a freshly-mowed lawn.

Flavor follows the nose. Clean grassy hops and bready malts. Neutral yeast and no astringency. Dough and a light touch of caramel. Well-balanced finish with just a touch of spice.

Light-medium body and a moderate level of carbonation. Clean, crisp, and refreshing mouthfeel.

Overall this isn't an exciting beer, but it's ridiculously clean and well-balanced. I've never given much thought to the style, but this was surprisingly pleasant and in my opinion, definitely beats its competitors.
