2021-01-02 Guinness West Indies Porter 3 months ago
Beer illustration Looking for some special beers for new year's eve I found this at the local supermarket. I know 'standard' Guinness since we used to drink that on holidays in England, but I had no idea what to expect from this beer. Time for the experiment.

In taste it's a reminder of Guinness, but not as 'creamy' as Guinness. A bit more nuance in taste.

2020-06-05 Frastanzer s'dunkle 10 months ago
Beer illustration Yet another import from our snowboard holiday in Austria.

The beer today is a Frastanzer s'dunkle. As the name suggests, a dark beer. With a good head of foam when poured correctly. The taste has a bit of a sweet note and has hops, but not as strong as other beers. A nice beer, good to bring from Austria or find at a store with lots of choice in beers.

2020-04-10 Brand IPA 1 year ago
Beer illustration Not imported from very far, just from the local supermarket.

Again an Indian Pale Ale. There is something about that taste that I like. This one doesn't have a very 'hoppy' taste like some other IPA beers. I would describe the color as a light amber. Almost blonde.

Beer illustration Yet another import from our snowboard holiday in Austria.

This time I'm drinking Frastanzer Gold Spezial. When poured correctly it looks very German with a big foamy head. Not too pronounced taste, a good beer to drink.

2020-03-13 Frastanzer s'honig 1 year ago
Beer illustration I bought a few Frastanzer beers on our snowboard holiday in Austria.

The first one to try is "Frastanzer s'honig" which is a beer made from biological ingredients with indeed a bit of added honey. Not too much, it's not too sweet for my taste. The honey gives the beer a soft side in taste without losing the strength from hops completely.

2020-03-06 Grolsch klassieke blond 1 year ago
Beer illustration Sometimes the Dutch special beers need attention too. And there are other beers than IPA beers. Really.

This is a special beer from the Dutch Grolsch brewery. A blonde beer, with a somewhat bitter taste for a blonde. Not too hoppy, a nice tasty beer.

2020-02-08 Lagunitas India Pale Ale 1 year ago
Beer illustration I decided to look for some special beers while shopping and I found this one: Lagunitas India Pale Ale. Sounded good, so I bought it.

The first taste is mostly hoppy, as expected from an IPA. Stronger than I've seen in some other IPA beers. In general it has a strong hop influence in the tast and reminds me of English bitter beers.

Reading the label shows me Lagunitas is from Petaluma, California and Chicago, Illinois. I guess Chicago has a serious beer culture with multiple breweries.

2019-07-21 BrewDog Indie Pale Ale 1 year ago
Beer illustration Another random find in the 'special beers' rack in the local supermarket. I usually like IPA beers, so this one sounded good to me.

Not as strong a taste as I would expect from an IPA. The influence of hop is just a mere touch, not as strong as some other IPA beers. On the grand scale of beers it's a tasty but not too complex.

2019-04-13 Cornet Oaked from De Hoorn Brouwerij 1 year ago
Beer illustration Another find in the local supermarket. This time no complicated backstory, it just looked and sounded nice.

It's a blonde beer. The color is lighter than I expected from a blonde, it's almost like Belgian white beer (Belgisch witbier). It has a higher alcohol level for a beer, but it didn't taste/feel like a strong beer to me.

A nice taste, not too complicated.
