K1664 is another fine beer. The head was short, and there wasn't a lot of carbonation at all, but it was still very crisp. The color was a very light gold, like that of your standard pilsner light beer. It was very smooth going down, with a light slightly bittersweet aftertaste. I could finish a couple pitchers of this stuff. So smooth. So crisp.
7/10.

Kronenbourg 1664 was very tasty. It was very light in every way. The color was a nice gold. The taste was very subtle, and I couldn't differentiate any of the flavors. It finished really well without very much bite. The glass is one of the favorites in my collection. Not only is the glass not your standard pint glass, but 1664 is embossed near the bottom of it. I rate this beer as definitely Drunkable. You can drink it with the greatest of ease.
