One man's quest to conquer the world (of beer)

ABV: 5%
Country number: 112
Bought at: Somewhere near Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina. Thanks to Karen Søyland Husebø!

My Untappd rating: 3.50

No revisit of a previous country this week as I am back with a new beer. I have actually been close to getting beer from Bosnia & Herzegovina a couple of times. Some of you might remember the beers I got from a friend who visited Croatia in June last year. Looking back at the posts about the beer from Montenegro and the beer from Serbia you can actually see that both of them were bought in Bosnia & Herzegovina. He accidentally forgot to buy a beer from Bosnia & Herzegovina but I sure can’t complain since he brought me beers from three other new countries. I also know that some of the Swedish Systembolaget stores have Bosnian beer in stock from time to time, but I have never found one the times I’ve visited Sweden. So… when a friend of mine was on vacation in Croatia last week and taking a trip across the border to Bosnia & Herzegovina I knew I had to ask for a local beer. She kindly said yes and brought with her this can of Nektar Pivo. Once again thank you Karen!

The beer is golden in colour with a fluffy white head. It tastes crisp and sweet with a well balanced amount of malt. A slightly bitter finish before the sweetness comes back in the aftertaste.

My Untappd rating: 3.25

No new beer this weeks which means I’m back with a revisit of one of the 43 countries I crossed of the list before starting this blog. Just like the previous ones this takes us back to 2014 and Daytona Beach. From what I remember I was given a can of Heineken by someone in the car we were driving from Daytona Beach to the Epcot Center in Orlando to celebrate the Norwegian Constitution Day.

The beer is light golden in colour with a solid white head. It tastes crisp and malty with a more sweet finish. The aftertaste is sweet and short.

A couple of months ago I told you about the guy that contacted me on RateBeer regarding some beers found in the Norwegian Vinmonopolet. Back then we exchanged some beers and thanks to him I managed to cross Belarus of the list. This week I’m back with another beer that he kindly sent me some weeks after the other, and it is Parbo Bier all the way from Suriname in South America. I actually could have gotten this beer myself when I was in Utrecht in early March this year, but since it a was a one litre bottle and space was limited I had to pass. I also knew that Maits from RateBeer already was in the process of getting it for me. Once again thanks Maits!

The beer is light golden in colour with a thin white foam lacing on top. It tastes clean and malty with a sweet finish and aftertaste.

Angkor Beer

Brewery: Cambrew
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 110
Bought at: Drinks of the World and sent to a friend in Billund, Denmark who then shipped it to Norway. Huge thanks to Aleksander Rødland!
Date: 25/05/2018
My Untappd rating: 2.50

Just like last weeks beer this is one of the two beers I ordered from Drinks of the World that got shipped to a friend in Denmark who then shipped it to me. And just like last week I like to thank Aleksander Rødland helping me cross another country of the list.

The beer is dark golden in colour with a centimeter high foam head that quickly disappears. The taste is flat with a sweetness similar to non-alcoholic malt beverages. Very little aftertaste as well. Only thing that saves it is that it is ice cold on a unusually hot day in Stavanger.

Bolivia

Paceña Centenario

I’m finally back with a beer from a new country! Or at least new on the blog. I actually had this beer once before at World of Beer in Port Orange, USA, but since that was before I got the Untappd app I haven’t registered it. By crossing this of the list it also means that I have crossed of all the different countries that I tried at World of Beer before getting the app. You can read more about which countries these were in the Welcome post from last year here. Just like some of the other beers I’ve had I found this one online, more precisely at Drinks of the World, and as experienced so many times before they did not ship to Norway. Luckily I have some great friends living all over the world so I kindly asked a friend living in Denmark if I could ship the beer to him so that he then could ship it to me in Norway. Once again huge thanks to Aleksander Rødland!

The beer is pale golden in colour with a foamy white head. It tastes crisp and sweet with a nice malty bitterness. The finish is sweet and long with a tiny hint of citrus to it. A nice way to cross of another country after six weeks with revisits!

Japan

Asahi Super Dry

Brewery: Asahi Breweries
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 6
Bought at: Takeya Japanese Steak House in Ormond Beach, USA
Date: 11/05/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.25

Doing these revisits of the beers I’ve had before I started the blog brings back a lot of good memories from the time I was living in Daytona Beach. One of those good memories is the restaurant Takeya Japaneses Steak House in nearby Ormond Beach. The beef served at Takeya is one of the most tender pieces of meat I have ever tasted, and of course they also served Japanese beer. I remember that they had both Asahi and Sapporo and that I picked Asahi the first time at the restaurant after I got the Untappd app.

The beer is golden in colour with a nice amount of bubbles in it. No significant foam on top and it tastes light and malty. It finishes off on a more sweet note that doesn’t last for too long. All in all a normal massproduced lager.

Red Stripe

Brewery: Desmoes and Geddes
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.7%
Country number: 5
Bought at: Somewhere in Daytona Beach, USA
Date: 27/04/2014
My Untappd rating: 2.75

Only two more weekends with revisits of beers I had before starting the blog. After that I will finally bring you some reveiws of beers I’ve never tried before. This week I’m back with another beer I had while living in Daytona Beach, USA, and as before I can’t quite remember where I bought it. Given Red Stripes global presence this is one of those exotic countries that many people have tried the local beer from.

The beer is dark golden in colour with a small foam head. Carbonation is rather weak and the beer tastes flat with just a tiny hint of malt before it fades over to a more sweet finish.

USA

USA

Landshark Lager

Brewery: Margaritaville Brewing Company
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.6%
Country number: 4
Bought at: Somewhere in Daytona Beach, USA
Date: 13/04/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.25

Many of the smaller countries I’ve tried beer from only have one or two different beerbrands. But for the larger countries where I have tried multiple beers from the same country it is the first beer from that country that I have registered in this blog. This means that when I’m doing this revisit of USA, Landshark Lager is the first beer that I registered from USA on Untappd. Like the three previous posts, I first had this back in 2014 when I was living in Daytona Beach.

The beer is clear golden in colour with a thin white head. It tastes crisp and malty with a sweet finish. Hint of malty bitterness in the ending.

Imperial

Brewery: Productura La Florida
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.5%
Country number: 3
Bought at: Somewhere in Daytona Beach, USA
Date: 29/03/2014
My Untappd rating: 2.75

This week I’m reviewing country number 3. This is a beer that I had multiple times when living in Daytona Beach, USA. From what I can remember I bought it as a sixpack at Publix Supermarket in Holly Hill the times that I bought it. Now it’s time to find out if it is as good as I remember it…

The beer is clear golden in colour with a fast disappearing head, but still decently carbonated. The taste is short with a malty start and a more sweet finish. Watery and very little aftertaste. Definitely not as good as I remember it.
