Khevsuruli

Brewery: Zedazeni
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.9%
Country number: 85
Bought at: Haus der 131 Biere in Hamburg, Germany
Date: 19/10/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.25

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!

Date: 12/10/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.25

This week I’m back with one of the beers a friend brought with him from his trip to Croatia earlier this year. He was kind enough to bring with him three beers and this is the second one I’m having. The other one I’ve had so far was Nikšićko Tamno from Montenegro. Once again huge thanks to Andreas Wathne 🙂

The beer is dark golden in colour with a rather big foam head. The taste is crisp and malty with a sweetish finish.

Kalik

Brewery: Commonwealth Brewery
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 83
Bought at: Sunset Corners in Miami, USA
Date: 06/10/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.25

I’m still on vacation and this weekend I’m back where my beerinterest kicked off. I’m back in Daytona Beach but sadly the World of Beer bar in Port Orange that I used to visit is no longer open. It is therefor kind of fitting that the beer I’m having this week is one that I had at World of Beer back when I used to live here. I got the beer at the brilliant Sunset Corners in Miami earlier during this vacation, but Kalik is easily found elsewhere in Florida as well.

The beer is clear yellow in colour with a good amount of foam. It doesn’t offer too much tastewise but has a nice malty ending. Very easy to drink in the heat here in Florida.

Polar

Brewery: Empresas Polar
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.5%
Country number: 82
Bought at: Liquored Up in Miami Beach, USA
Date: 29/09/2017
My Untappd rating: 2.75

As I explained in last weeks blogentry I’m currently on vacation in Florida. Last weekend was spent in Canada and I was not sure if I would find beer from a new country, and I was correct. This weekend on the otherhand I’m in Florida and according to my research new countries should be no problem, and this weeks beer from Venezuela is one of the ones I’ve found so far.

I enjoyed the beer from the bottle so it is hard to say anything about the colour. The beer seemed normally carbonated. The taste was rather weak. A hint of sweetness towards the end without any significant aftertaste.

Castle Lager

Brewery: South African Breweries
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 81
Bought at: The Savanna in London, England
Date: 20/09/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.00

This week I have to do things slightly different. I’m travelling to Canada on Friday and further on to Florida on Sunday and given the fact that I can’t say for certain that I will find a beer from a new coutry in Canada I decided to have this weeks beer before leaving on Friday, more precisely today. This beer I found at a The Savanna store in Victoria Station in London last month. They have shops all across London and is a great way to get hold of beer from both South Africa and Namibia.

The beer is light golden in colour with a nice amount of foam on top just after pouring it into the glass. The taste is standard lager with some sweetness and barely any bitterness. It has a watery aftertaste and ends up kind of boring. Not bad though all things considered.

Zlatý Bažant 12%

Brewery: Heineken Slovensko
Style: Czech Pilsner
ABV: 5%
Country number: 80
Bought at: Beers of Europe in Setchey, England and delivered to Jurys Inn in Gateshead, England
Date: 15/09/2017
My Untappd rating: 3.75

This week we reach country number 80 and I’m all out of exotic beers to mark the occasion. Therefor I decided to go for a beer that I’ve had before, the Zlatý Bažant which I had at World of Beer in Port Orange, Florida. The beer is actually branded as Golden Pheasant in USA and Canada. This beer also marks the end of the beers I got from Beers of Europe back in March this year.

The beer is dark golden in colour with a nice amount of foam on the top. It tastes smooth and slightly sweet before ending on a more bitter note from the malts. A very good Czech pilsner that would do the Czech proud.

As I have now reached 80 different countries I have made some minor adjustments to the blog. The photos of Latest Beer on the bottom of the blog is changed to Upcomming Beers, which will be the beers planned for the next 4 weeks. This is to give you a small sneakpeak into what I have planned for the next weeks. The search function has also been replaced with links to other beerblogs. If you have any suggestions on other features you want to see please don’t hesitate to write it the comment section below.

Port Royal Export

Brewery: Cervecería Hondureña
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.9%
Country number: 79
Bought at: Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck, USA
Date: 08/09/2017
My Untappd rating: 2.50

Not only am I nearing the end of the beers I got sent to my hotel in Newcastle back in March as talked about earlier, but I am also nearing the end of the beers I bought in New York during my Easter holiday this year. Just like last week this beer was also bought at the brilliant Half Time Beverage I talked about then.

The beer is clear golden in colour with a solid white head. The taste is flat and not very interesting. Small fruity hints before it fades out into nothing.

Taiwan Beer Gold Medal

Brewery: Taiwan Tobacco & Liquor Corporation
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.5%
Country number: 78
Bought at: Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck, USA
Date: 01/09/2017

When I try to plan what the next beer for this blog will be I look back and see which continent it’s been the longest since I’ve had a beer from. So this time it’s time to go back to Asia. This is another one I got from the brilliant store Half Time Beverage in Mamaroneck just outside of New York. If you’re ever in New York and have a couple of extra hours to spare don’t hesitate to take the train to Mamaroneck. It is definitely worth the trip!

The beer is golden in colour with a small white head. It tastes mild and almost sweet with a well balanced bitterness from the malt. A pleasent surprise after last weeks beer from Mozambique.

Brewery: Cervejas de Moçambique
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.5%
Country number: 77
Bought at: Nando’s in Newport, Wales
Date: 25/08/2017
My Untappd rating: 2.50

This weekend I’m on vacation in Newport and since Wales is one of the countries I’ve already had beer from I once again had to do some research. One of the things I found out was that the restaurant chain Nando’s currently have a beer from Mozambique on the menu. I found mine at a Nando’s in Newport.

The beer is clear with a fair amount of carbonation. It doesn’t taste much and is very watery. Slight malty aftertaste but that’s the only reminder that you are drinking beer.
