March 2002: Average French lager - easily drinkable, but Kronenbourg 1664 is better..... Probably still my opinion today, but it's been years since the last time I bothered to buy it.

One of the local options in the Strasboug, Alsatian scene and one of the "big five" French beers of the 1970s, Kronenbourg was probably the "best" of the big five and definitely the most popular and prevalent in Paris at the time. Though the Alsatian/Strasbourg scene was the best of France, it never compared with all that was going on across the great Rhine River.

Trying not to bring back any Euros, I picked up a couple more beers to finish off my French trip. This one was cold.

It is a yellow lager with nice lacing. The aroma is faint but not funky. The taste is thin and slightly sweet. The aftertaste is non-existent.

Not recommended. It's not worth your while.

500ml Keg at Au Rendez-Vous des Artistes, Montmarte, Paris (€5):
Quite a light looking beer but one that sits nicely in the glass with a decent looking & quite fluffy textured head that also had good retention. The nose was definitely basic with some slightly skunky notes & a little corn showing in the early going followed by the odd vegetable adjunct. The taste of the beer was similar to the nose with some corn & a light sweetness alongside some faint bitterness & the odd malt. It was very much a macro pale lager with moderate carbonation & a crisp, slightly dry finish but it wasn't one I'd hurry back to.

Kronenbourg Original has a thick, mousse-like, white head, a bubbly, golden, clear appearance, with lots of white sediment, throughout, and heavy glass lacing. Aroma is of banana, white bread crust, and white bread toast. Taste is similar, with sharp hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Kronenbourg finishes medium dry.

Very average lager; intrigued because it's from France but besides being refreshing on a hot, summer day, there isn't much that I can say about this beer. I wouldn't seek it out again. Very light (4.2 ABV), very little smell that I can discern. Nice head and lacing which generally maintained throughout. Drink this if you are sweating on a hot day and you need to get rehydrated. :) Otherwise, not worth it....reminds me of Bud Light.
