Kronenbourg Premier Cru

Pumpkin Publog15 comments • 2,385 views

What kind of sucker would buy Kronenbourg Premier Cru? What kind of idiot would be taken in by its frosted blue bottle? What kind of snob would fall for the pretension that “Kronie” has a ‘Premier Cru’ anyway? What kind of buffoon would fail to check the abv (over 6%) and thus not realise that ‘Premier Cru’ in fact means ‘nasty spesh lager’? Surely not somebody with half a decade’s experience in marketing?? Groan. :(

    Actually I did. I’ve no TV for past 10 years, I’ve never seen Cru’s ads, just bought it as I try different beers at my local off licence. And it’s my favourite beer not because of bottle, ads or any other shite. It tastes just great. One and only reason.

    Yeah as Eric says, it’s a very fine tasting lager. Perhaps it is in fact you Tom who judges a book too much by it’s cover…and to be frank there isn’t much wrong with the frosted blue bottle really – sorry to hear it’s offended you so.

    What’s wrong Tom?? Too strong for you?? Why don’t you leave the 6% beer for the MEN and go back to drinking pish water!!!! Yeah about 4% should do you just fine!!

    It’s a smooth mighty fine tasting beer, in my opinion. I tried it after getting bored of the usual Cobra, Peroni etc, and I am glad I did. My life has changed forever.
    Try it, you’ll like it.

    As CruYou put it, you may of done this post 3 years ago but what a drip you are.

    Never have I seen an add for this beer.

    I found Cru in an off licence by chance and the guy behind the counter recommended it. Absolutely love the stuff.

    Is this the Kronenbourg street team in action I wonder?

    I had my first session for a while on the normal version on Friday – bad idea: it’s as poisonous as Stella.

    I wouldn’t tar normal Kronenburg with Stella, its not THAT bad (or indeed psychosis inducing – unless you count a hangover as a psychosis).

    Oh it tastes nicer, no question, and doesn’t affect your behaviour adversely, but the hangover I got off it was very Stella-esque.

    Currently 99p a bottle at my local “B&M Bargains” store (Blaydon), highly recommended at that price.

    worst street team ever.

    currently 99p a can at my local corner shop – ALMOST ALL BEER.

    including Redd’s, which i keep meaning to blog. polish lager that, unless you look really closely, you’d expect from the can ‘livery’ to be nothing out of the ordinary. ‘hmm, does that translate as a “splash of citrus”. *swig* MAN ALIVE it must translate as BUCKET OF APPLE FLAVOURING

    This larger is great.
    I lived in France for seven months in 1998 [ when I was a youth ] and use to drink Kronenbourg 1664 on a regular basis.
    This is similar to the 1664 that is sold over there [ stronger than what we get over here in England ]
    Best of all it’s 99 p at my local off license for a 500 ml bottle.

    Anybody know where to buy this lovely drink? About 4 years ago now I started to drink it on a regular basis, then all of a sudden I can’t find it anywhere… nearly a year since the last post on this site, I wont hold my breath!
