This weekend my hometown is host to one of Norways, if not Europes, best beer festivals. What’s Brewing is arranged for the fourth time this year and new this year is that there is a theme, more precisely a Soviet theme. Therefore it is quite fitting that this weeks beer on the blog comes from a former Soviet state. I got hold of this beer at Haus der 131 Biere in Hamburg last weekend when I was attending some assessment tests for an airline. Even got the beer for 0.99€ since it was past its best before date.
There is no way of telling that the beer is past its best before date when it comes to colour, smell or taste. It is dark amber in colour with a fluffy white head. It tastes round and sweet with a nice malty finish. გაუმარჯოს!
