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.

Review: Can of Kronenbourg Pale Lager, 5.5%ABV

Kronenbourg 1664 is France’s No.1 selling beer, and a nice refreshing beer with a lot of interesting flavours.

The appearance is a lovely clear amber colour, with a nice frothy white head. The appearance has the wow factor, it looks really like a beer you definitely want to drink.

The smell is not strong but you can get both a nice faint sweetness and a fruity aroma off the beer.

Taste has a mixture of different flavours from fruit, sweet caramel malts, honey, to a sweet malt taste at the start followed up with a mild hop bitterness.

All in all a nice crafted beer and quite an enjoyable drinking experience mainly due, in my opinion, to the complexity of the flavours. Truly a well balanced beer.

Good served ice cold on the train from Brussels to Paris at 10:30 am. A good eye opener for sure. If you are in the mood for a cheap euro lager (and when are you ever not in the mood for that?). Prefer it to stella or heineken.

500 ml can poured into a lager glass. Pours clear straw colour with light fluffy head. Very little nose - slightly skunky. Very little flavour and slightly skunky. Slightly better than some North American mass produced beers but not great.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Golden color with a thin thick head with medium retention.
Light aroma of bread and some grains, peaches and mild lemon.
Flavor with notes of floral hops, you could say Alsace like, Lager yeast, green leaves, mild cloves and bread malt. Dry with a medium bitterness aftertaste.
Light, rather smooth body with good carbonation.
I was expecting a tasteless industrial lager. But this is crisp and balanced lager with perceivable hops. Didn’t get me off my feet, but I would sure session this.
