Kronenbourg 1664 Lager

5% alc./vol., 500 ml can
Brasseries Kronenbourg –
Strasbourg, France 

DSCF1889Okay, after yesterday’s research on the best temperature to serve beer, I’ve done some experiments.  My fridge maintains a  temperature of just under 2° C on the top shelf where I keep my beer, which they tell me is the perfect temperature for a fridge.  This one came out measuring 4° C right after I opened it.  Seems like a good drinking temperature for a beer.  This one is pretty good, with a pretty standard European lager taste and colour.  It contains glucose syrup, believe it or not, but it’s not sweet tasting.  When Jérome Hatt founded his brewery in 1664, Strasbourg and its suburb Cronenbourg were not French yet, which ultimately explains the German-sounding name of the city and of France’s most popular beer.  That’s Jérome’s signature on the can, although the beer inside the can was first brewed in 1952.
