here’s a super drinkable beer. i’m a fan of beer that has a swing-top — makes it more fancy and important i guess.

it’s got a mild taste, which allows for its drinkability (f you bud lite)

this brewery, like most (all?) german breweries follow the reinheitsgebot (or the german beer purity law) — a pretty cool quality-control standard

another unique one from kashtan bistro…this beer both hurt and helped me during andy’s poker night last friday…

with no food in my belly… this beer got to work quick — it kinda gave me a ‘drunken master‘ vibe… the others in the table couldn’t find any tells cuz i was gettin’ sloshed. i also blame the chip conversion rate… i realize also that i suck at math (pfft.. some kinda asian i am)

anyway… the beer was drinkable, but if they just called it a hefeweizen, i wouldn’t have been the weiser (get it?) — it tasted like any other hef, which i’m not really a fan of… hefs are generally drinkable, but they taste fruity (you are what you drink, har har) and have a feeling of summer

lemme get this out in the open — i’m not a fan of green-bottled beer… so why is beer bottled in green bottles? mark says, “cos they’re fucking retarded” (true, but i’m looking for specifics — thanks for playing, mark).

here’s another answer, but it doesn’t really answer why it was done in the first place

i think it was three sheets that told me that breweries used green bottles when there was a shortage of brown bottles… can someone f’in google it to determine if i’m right or if i just pulled that one outta my ass? (i would, but i am le tired)

anyway, this beer was just like heineken, which also is way overrated (jersey douchebags) — little sour flavor. if someone on beeradvocate says they taste “hints of coriander” or “floral notes”, they’re f*ckin’ lying… there is nothing good about this beer

i’m proud to present my first D grade! whoo hoo

oh yea, and everyone wanted to be tagged — so there you go, andy, lisa, juan, and adam. enjoy the spotlight

i’ll start off with the grade — i’m giving this a solid A. i’m a fan of “coffee beers” and this was no exception.

this one also came in a bigger 500ml bottle, which worked out cuz it was delish — i would definitely go back to this one and i suggest it to anyone who likes darker coffee-like beer.

finally, another beer with an A grade that rivals the peche lambic!

it was an alright beer… nothing too special about it… i had it with this bomb cheese (cabot extra sharp cheddar). it wasn’t smooth going down — had some metallic flavor to it — and i’m sure i wasn’t drinking it out of an old metallic cup.

it took me a whole 6 pack to figure out that this beer was so-so… i probably won’t go back to this one…
