Would have like a little more sour but pretty decent. It was old tho. Like a year old. Tasted flat tbh

This was pretty nice. Great malty ipa. Hops more in the bitterness than in the fragrance.

I think the Perpetual IPA is a bit dated at this point.  Definitely shouldn't be malty.  I had it back when it was released and the hops were quite strong, similar to Nugget Nectar but less dank.

Didn't know Bohemia did stuff like that. I think their mainline beer is the best of the Mexican lagers that are widely available in the US.

trust me, I was shocked to find it. i didn't think the Mexicans came anywhere near chocolate in beer.

Part of a well-balanced diet.

Good source of Vitamin D! Fuck sun, Kellogg's it is. (nonetheless, you've just reminded me that I need to get some of those healthy cereals)

Deep Ellum Brewing IPA. Genuinely excellent. Nice to see a local brewer bottling something of this quality.

Two beers, yesterday:

and

R0012270_zps9f60e3bf.jpg

The Tempelier was pretty good in the Duvel variety. The St. Feuillien was slightly bitter (which is good) but should have been my first of the evening due to its lighter taste of the two.

Genlemen, thought it was about time to join the fine club of beer connaisseurs here on SF wink.gif.

 

Had a short business trip to Tokyo the this week, and made it to 'Goodbeer Faucets' in Shibuya. They have a nice selection of beers on tap bottled ones from around the world. It's definately something I did not expect to find in Japan; usually I just 'stumble' across the usual 'big brands' like Kirin and the likes. Well, it was a pleasant surprise and I am now starting to look for small breweries and brew-pubs for the places I travel to (off to Seoul tomorrow morning).

 

I tried the tasting set to get a little overview at 'Goodbeer Faucets':

 

 

1000

 

Left to right:

 

- Nide Cream Lager (Nide Beer, Japan)

- Pale Ale (Chateau Kamiya, Japan)

- Mystic Cherry (Haacht, Belgium)

- Full Boar Scotch Ale (Devils Canyon, USA)

- Shimaguni Stout (Baird Beer, Japan)

 

Except for the fruit beer (way too sweet for my taste) I was pleasantly surprised by the japanese beers. Will definately go back on my next trip to Tokyo and try some more.

 

Cheers,

DBate
