    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.

    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.

    Genlemen, thought it was about time to join the fine club of beer connaisseurs here on SF [​IMG].

    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':


    [​IMG]

    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
