Beers of the World

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

Trinidad & Tobago

Trinidad & Tobago

Carib Lager

Brewery: Carib Brewery
Style: Lager
ABV: 5.2%
Country number: 67
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 16/06/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.00

Thank god for Beers of Europe. If it weren’t for their online store this entire blog would be short without too many entries. Just like some of the other beers tasted during this project Carib Lager is one that I’ve tasted before. Both me and my brother enjoyed a chilled Carib Lager at the port in St. Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands. My father on the other hand had a Virgin Islands Tropical Mango Pale Ale from St. Johns Brewers. Too bad I didn’t have Untappd then and picked the same beer as my dad as it’s going to be hard to get hold of a beer from the United States Virgin Islands for this blog.

The beer is, as you probably can guess from the photo, similar to Corona Extra. Golden colour and a small white foam head. It doesn’t taste too much but has a small hint of citrus towards the end. Just like any other Caribbean beer it probably tastes alot better when served ice cold on a beach in the heat 🙂

Vietnam

“33” Export

Brewery: VBL Tien Giang
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.5%
Country number: 66
Bought at: Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck, USA
Date: 10/06/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.00

Another beer bought this Easter when travelling to New York. It is one that I’ve had at World of Beer that is not registrered on Untappd. Recently I also learned that a local restaurant called Sushi San have Vietnamese beer in form of Saigon Export, if you ever fancy a Vietnamese beer in Stavanger, Norway.

Hard to tell you anything about colour and foam as I drank the beer straight from the bottle. The taste was standard lager with malt and corn dominating throughout the drinking.

Portugal

Portugal

Sagres

Brewery: Sociedade Central de Cervejas e Bebidas
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 65
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 02/06/2017
My Untappd rating: 2.75

Yet another beer that I bought online at Beers of Europe. Hopefully not too long before I can bring you a different story on how I got the beer of the week 🙂

Nothing much to tell you about the taste of the beer either. The beer is golden in colour with a normal amount of foam when poured into the glass. It is dull and flat in taste with a dry and slightly bitter finish. Not my first choice if I ever travel to Portugal.

Namibia

Namibia

Windhoek Lager

Brewery: Namibia Breweries

Country number: 64
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 27/05/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.00

This is another beer that was part of the big shipment from Beers of Europe that I received back in March this year. Beerlao, Cēsu Light and Phoenix Beer are the other ones I’ve tried from this shipment so far.

The beer is light golden in colour with a solid foam head. The taste is rather flat with a bitter and malty finish.

Haiti

Haiti

Prestige

Brewery: Brasserie Nationale d’Haiti
Style: Lager
ABV: 5.6%
Country number: 63
Bought at: Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck, USA
Date: 20/05/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.50

This beer from Haiti was one of the six beers from new countries that I bought at Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck when traveling to New York this Easter.

The beer is light golden in colour without any mentionable foam on top. It tastes very crisp with a small amount of sweet to it. Finishes off malty which lingers on to the aftertaste. A very drinkable lager, especially when you’ve participated in a bikerace earlier in the day.

Laos

Laos

Beerlao

Brewery: Lao Brewery
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 62
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 12/05/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.50

This beer from Laos is the third beer out of the ones I’ve had at World of Beer that I have now registered on Untappd. If I remember correctly it was one of the first beers I tried when visiting the bar for the first or second time. This time I got a hold of it when I ordered it as one of the many beers ordered at Beers of Europe.

The beer is solid golden in colour with a small white foam head and carbonation that lasts. It tastes malty and bitter with a somewhat sweet aftertaste, resulting in a very good lager.

Latvia

Latvia

Cēsu Light

Brewery: Cēsu Alus
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.2%
Country number: 61
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 06/05/2017
My Untappd rating: 2.75

Just like last weeks beer from Mauritius this beer was part of the shipment I received from Beers of Europe back in March.

The beer is light yellow in colour with a well carbonated foam head. The taste is rather boring and standard lager. Slightly malty taste but as the name suggests it is very light. Another one that falls in the category of being very close to water…

Mauritius

Mauritius

Phoenix Beer

Brewery: Phoenix Beverages
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 60
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 29/04/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.25

As mentioned in the blog entry about Belfast Ale I received two boxes full of beer when I checked in at my hotel in Newcastle back in March. So far I’ve had two of the fifteen beers delivered, both ordered from Bien Manger in France. This beer on the other hand is the first from an order I made at Beers of Europe also delivered to the hotel.

The beer is light golden in colour with a fair amount of foam on the top. It tastes light and malty with a grainy and bitter finish.

Cuba

Cuba

Cristal

Brewery: Cerveceria Bucanero
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.9%
Country number: 59
Bought at: Bien Manger in La Canourgue, France and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 21/04/2017
My Untappd rating: 2.75

This beer is one of the 5 beers I bought at Bien Manger and got delivered to my hotel in Newcastle in England when I traveled there in March this year.

The beer is golden in colour with a minimal foam head that disappears as quickly as the lager smell.  Small hints of malt and sweetness in the taste before it fades over to water. Probably tastes a lot better when served under a palm tree in Cuba.
