The bottle has a nice high-tech touch, in that the label has a little star printed in thermo-sensitive ink. Invisible at the wrong temperature; blue at the right temperature (between 6 and 8 degrees Celsius).

...I'd like to have the name of that beer. (or is it 1664? I presumed that was the first item in a list of two) :-)

Anyway, I'd like to see that sort of device on many of the more hearty beers that should not be served icy cold. Fat Tire (from Colorado) is often served in bars at a temperature much too cold for optimum taste. On the other hand, there'd probably have to be a different temperature rating in the UK from that used in the US.

Americans are known to prefer their beers much too cold. What our British bretheren do not understand is that prior to the last decade, almost all American beer was so horrid that the cold temperature was to protect us from tasting it at all.

    The beer is indeed named 1664 (after the year that the brewery was founded).

    We Australians also like our beer served cold. Personally, I can't abide the muck they serve in the UK. Far too warm for me. But you get used to anything I suppose :)

    Australian beer has gone through a renaissance in the past fifteen years, with a lot of small breweries setting up operations and giving the industrials a big scare. If you ever get to Oz, try a James Boag or a Cascade (both from Tasmania) or anything by Coopers (Ale, Lager, Stout) from South Australia. Do not ask for a Fosters. Anything would be better than that.

    1664 is made by Kronenbourg (now owned by Scottish & Newcastle). One of the highlights of advocate's student exchange trip to Strasbourg last year was a trip to their brewery.

    I have 3 bevvie containers on my desk, but regrettably none of them ever contained any beer. About 7 years ago I worked on a project for Bass Brewers which involved visits to several trial sites located in pubs. That was pretty cool. :)
