Grim Reaper's Eulogy

Souffle like head. Not a usual lager; the yeast was slightly detectable. The biggest surprise was the nice after-beer buzz. I discovered it is just a scoch under the 6% mark. Not bad, not bad at all considering this is a beer from the heart of the wine universe. Nicely done. An all around good beer.

In case you were wondering, the 1664 moniker comes from the founding year of the original brewery. This brew really took off after WWII. Call them frogs, surrender monkeys or whatever, but when it comes to food, fashion and fine beverages, the French make love not war. Viva' la résistance!
