Disadvantages: Kronenbourg brewed in the UK doesn't taste as good as Europe
When it comes to beer there's nothing like drinking Kronenbourg 1664, whether is a bottle of bear whilst out in the sun having a picnic or a pint of Kronenbourg in the pub. Drinking 1664, provokes all sorts of passionate thoughts especially for anyone who has seen the commercials.
The main reason I like to drink Kronenbourg is not because of the taste of the beer but the image conjured up by the commercial. After a hard days work of low wages one feels satisfied being able to at least afford a pint of this beer to forget one's worries. When ordering at the pub I simply like to say to the bartender, a "pint of 1664 please" whereas asking for a Heniken or Fosters just doesn't evoke any good feelings. I also like my friends to see me holding a glass that has the words 1664 printed on it. Regardless of the taste, it looks like a refined and expensive beer which suits my image.
On to the taste itself, there's a good percentage of alcohol in there especially compared to other beers and it doesn't taste too bitter. However one complaint I have is that Kronenbourg brewed in the UK doesn't taste as good as Europe. Overall this is one of my favourite beers.
