American IPA from Kormoran Brewery, Poland. Full of fruity and pine hop flavour, refreshing beverage for hot(!), March afternoon ;)
-----------------
Although next trip I think Ill get a 12 pack of Hofbrau and another 12 8% Baltikas.
I know I can be boring with all that "dark beer is good for you :D", but Baltika have a pleasant porter in the offer:

I am currently cooling my mg42 with a very powerful triple. I would tell you the brewery and origin of the ale, but it is in fact a homebrew. A very powerful one at that. The recipe stated it would be 9% alc but my enhanced methods of absorbing the carbohydrates of the mash has created a monster of 11,5% and it is still tasting smooth and fruity (bananan of course) as any Belgium ale.

I made an 11.4% barleywine in Dec13. I think it had a 1.106 SG or something when it started.


This last weekend my latest Hefeweizen was finally ready. Or well, it had been in-bottle for two weeks, so its carbonated. I think it will benefit from another week or two in bottle before I give them away though.

Yes, it is a Belgian tripel and have an opinion of beeing a good representative of this beer style - must be pale, strong, full of esters (fruity and wine flavours). I am not a big fan of Belgian ales (but there are few exceptions). But Stella Artois is a typical pale lager and tastes like a typical pale lager everywhere in the world :p

Yeah DT is a Tripel, a classic specimen, great beer. To be honest, if you get into the "big beers", 11 or 12% isn't all that uncommon.


Stella does come from Belgium, but to be honest it's not even a Belgian style beer, its a Pilsner. The real Belgians all use Belgian yeast, which is the taste you probably thought was wheat. Belgian yeasts all have a very characteristic taste and smell... and once you get into them, they really offer a whole new (old) world of beer. Saisons, Wits, Dubbels, Tripels, Quadrupels, Strong Dark Ales, Golden Ales, Flemish Reds, Belgian Pale Ales, Lambics, Trappists, Abbey Ales ... therein you will find what most beer connoisseurs consider the best beers in the world. Nobody pimps a Hefeweizen or Brown Ale as best in the world, but they fight over which Quad or Strong Dark Ale is the best beer ever made...


Last night I drank another Unibroue, this time Trois Pistoles, Belgian Strong Dark Ale... excellent beer.

Not into all that. Reminds me of german Fransikaner.
Have you tried Spanish beer? Typical is called San Miguel has about 4% and goes down good. Then im sure you heard of estrella damm from barcelona has about 4.7% I think, but I bit too harsh for me even though its golden. My fav is basque!! Its called keler has about 7% and in the hot basque summer on the beach they are excelent, most refereshing high content beer ever, and they are sweet too. Intresting taste.

We definitely have beers from all over, and one of my friends married a girl in the basque community... but I just haven't sought these beers out. I've certainly heard of San Miguel.


Tonight I'm having an Anchor Porter

The problem with San Miguel in murica is that where I am I could never find the real one. Instead I find a Filipino version where the bottle looks weird. And it certainly doesnt taste the same. For the uninformed Filipins was once Spanish colony.

Your friend married a basque lol? Ill bet shes sexy as hell ;)

Jank these are what they look like

Spanish Version: http://www.manydrinks.com/product/san-miguel-beer-nrb-330ml-case-24/

Estrella Damm from Catalonia, oldest brewery there: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrella_Damm

Notice the red star on the bottle ;)

Keler from Basque country, also golden lager but with 7% like I said slight german influence in the brewing brewery just as old as estrella. http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/keler-18/54910/

Note it says Barcelona, I will explain below why. Truth is like I said Keler is basque from San Sebastian

Today Damm pwnz everything except San Miguel, Damm bought Keler, they are like the Busch of Spain...

So many damms, Estrella Galicia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrella_Galicia

And then the strongest so callled golden beer along with keler is Voll Damm: but its malt based so I dont really like it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voll-Damm
