World beer advent calendar 20: Kronenbourg 1664 (France)

Name: Kronenbourg 1664

Country of Origin: France (brewed in the UK)

Alc vol: 5%

There’s no picture. I didn’t take one and I can’t be bothered to do so now, not for Kronenbourg.

Maybe this needs a side trip on how advent calendars should work. I think I’ve said this before – yes, I have – but putting something average, or a beer that’s banana-flavoured, in at the late stage of an advent calendar is cruel.

So this time the beer isn’t banana flavoured, but it’s Kronenbourg 1664, which is once again so easily available in the UK that it’s hardly a wold beer. And this one’s brewed in the UK anyway.

Rather than talk about this boring beer, I did a bit of research, and it turns out that this company is the same company that make the red and white Kronenbourg bottles that you get in France. They don’t taste great either (they’re good by the pool but so small that you feel like you’re drinking very fast), but at least it’s something more interesting than this beer.

5/10 – I’m annoyed…and slightly fearful of getting Foster’s tomorrow.
