Beers of the World

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

Saint Vincent & the Grenadines



Brewery: St. Vincent Brewery
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.8%
Country number: 114
Bought at: The Dover Market in Bridgetown, Barbados
Date: 04/11/2018
My Untappd rating: 3.00

On Thursday I got an e-mail from work asking if I could travel to Liège on Friday to operate a cargoflight to Caracas in Venezuela and then further on to Bridgetown in Barbados. As a result of this I’m spending two nights in Barbados. Banks Lager from Barbados was actually one of the first beers I had at World of Beer in Port Orange, USA. It was therefor a nice surprise that I noticed this bottle of Hairoun when visiting the local supermarket after arriving today.

Hard to tell anything about colour since I drank it from the bottle. Decent amount of carbonation. It tastes crisp and malty, but sadly this feeling fades rather quickly before some of the maltyness returns in the end. Very refreshing in 30°C heat on Barbados!





Brewery: St. James’s Gate Brewery
Style: Red Ale
ABV: 4.3%
Country number: 22
Bought at: O’Learys in Oslo, Norway
Date: 03/01/2015
My Untappd rating: 3.75

As last weeks revisit brought us into 2015 we don’t have to go far into the new year to find this weeks revisit. In January that year I moved to Oslo for a month to do the ATPL Ground School as part of the process to get my European pilot licences. Shortly after arriving me and some fellow classmates went to O’Learys for something to eat and with it I had a Kilkenny draught.

The beer is dark red in colour with a fluffy white foam head. It tastes malty with a roasty taste in the end. Hints of sweetness in both smell and taste.



Newcastle Brown Ale

Brewery: Heineken UK
Style: Brown Ale
ABV: 4.5%
Country number: 20
Bought at: Backstage in Stavanger, Norway
Date: 29/11/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.50

Another week of revisits and another week of some explanation. Just like last weeks entry from France this weeks entry from England is also the second beer from the country and not the first. The reason for this is that the first beer from England registered on Untappd was San Miguel brewed by Carlsberg UK. As I had this at a local bar here in Stavanger I’m not 100% sure if it was brewed in England or Spain. I have therefor chosen to use Newcastle Brown Ale as my entry for crossing England of the list. This beer was also enjoyed at a local bar here in my hometown, namely Backstage.

The beer is dark brown in colour with a thin creamy head. It tastes sweet with hints of caramel and some slight bitterness towards the end. Roasty creamy feel as the taste fades away.



Kronenbourg 1664

Brewery: Brasseries Kronenbourg
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 19
Bought at: Alf & Werner in Stavanger, Norway
Date: 09/11/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.50

France is one of the countries where I actually use the second beer I had from that country for the list you can find if you click Europe above. The reason for this is that Desperados has been produced in both France and Netherlands and I can’t remember what it said on the bottle I had back when I was living in USA. When it comes to Kronenbourg 1664, which this blogentry is about, it suffers from the same Norwegian alcohol laws that I mentioned two weeks ago when revisiting Chang Classic. That means the Kronenbourg 1664 that you buy in Norwegian grocery stores is 4.5% while I’m currently enjoying the 5% version bought outside Norway.

The beer is golden in colour with a small white foam top. It tastes crisp and malty with a nice amount of sweetness to it. The sweetness lingers on throughout the finish.

Czech Republic

Czech Republic

Budweiser Budvar B:Original

Brewery: Budějovický Budvar
Style: Czech Pilsner
ABV: 5%
Country number: 18
Bought at: Arkivet Nattbar in Stavanger, Norway
Date: 26/10/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.75

Those of you who are eagle-eyed might notice that this weeks revisit was first enjoyed the day after last weeks revisit. Simple explanation is that after the birthdayparty mentioned in the blogentry about Chang we continued the night at Arkivet Nattbar and this beer was one of the ones I had after midnight.

The beer is dark golden in colour with a thin white foam lacing on top. It tastes crisp with a nice amount of malty bitterness. It ends with a nice round finish making it a very good czech pilsner.



Chang Classic

Brewery: Cosmos Brewery
Style: Lager
ABV: 5%
Country number: 17
Bought at: Somewhere in Stavanger, Norway
Date: 25/10/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.25

I am surprised about how many details I remember when I’m doing these revisits. This weeks revisit brings me back to a birthdayparty I attended where some of the beers I brought with me was a six pack of Chang Classic. I think the beers were bought at REMA 1000 but as I am not 100% sure I’ve simply listed it at somerwhere in Stavanger. As a sidenote I would like to mention that the Chang Classic sold in grocery stores in Norway is 4.2% due to Norwegian alcohol laws while the one I’m having while writing this blogentry is 5%.

The beer is clear golden in colour with a small white head. It has a slightly sour smell but tastes malty and just like most lagers. Slight hints of hopps lasts through the ending.



Tuborg Grøn

Brewery: Carlsberg
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.6%
Country number: 16
Bought at: Crazy in Bryne, Norway
Date: 04/10/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.25

Shortly after moving back home to Norway I visited a friend living in Klepp just south of Stavanger. Later that evening we decided to check out the nightlife in Bryne, the place we both studied at a couple of years earlier. We ended up at this place called Crazy and one of the beers they had there was the popular Tuborg Grøn. When I come to think about it Tuborg Grøn was probably one of the first beers that I drank when I was younger, way before the craft beer had entered the scene here in Norway.

The beer is light golden in colour with what I would describe as a normal white foam head. Is tastes mild with some bitterness from the malts and has a short and somewhat flat finish.



Lervig Lucky Jack

Brewery: Lervig Aktiebryggeri
Style: Pale Ale
ABV: 4.7%
Country number: 15
Bought at: Helgø Meny Øysenteret in Hundvåg, Norway
Date: 13/09/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.75

As I’ve been doing these revisits I’ve been reliving a lot of great memories from when I lived in Daytona Beach, USA. This weeks revisit brings me back to when I moved back to Stavanger in September 2014. Quite fittingly my first Norwegian beer registered on Untappd was the local Lervig Lucky Jack from the superb Lervig Aktiebryggeri. This beer is easily available all over Norway at most grocery stores.

The beer is dark golden in colour with a fluffy white head. It has a nice citrus taste with a hoppy finish.



Baltika 3 Classic

Brewery: Baltika Breweries
Style: Lager
ABV: 4.8%
Country number: 14
Bought at: World of Beer in Port Orange, USA
Date: 06/09/2014
My Untappd rating: 3.50

This week I’m back at doing revisits of one of the 43 beers I had before starting this blog. This beer brings us back to World of Beer but this time with a take-away beer. The reason for this is that I was close to reaching 100 different beers at World of Beer when I was about to move home to Stavanger from Daytona Beach. So to reach 100 I bought a couple of take-away beers from the bar to enjoy at home before moving home and this Russian beer was one of them.

The beer is golden in colour with an average amount of white foam. It tastes crisp and malty with a bit of a grainy feel towards the end. Smooth and very easy to drink.
