It's all about the yeast - Pyynikin Dammer Pils

Pyynikin Dammer Pils

It was one of those days. One of those days nothing really works and you got totally exhausted by all kinds of work. And there is only one thing you are looking for at the end: a damn good refreshing beer. 

I checked the fridge and there it was, shining at me with bold white letters: A Pils, to be specific the Pyynikin Dammer Pils. I took it, poured it into a a glass and the first thing I noticed: yeast. Basically I got a unfiltered Pils in front of me and therefore the first questions was: what da hack is that? 

NZ stands for New Zealand - Mathildedalin Kantaja NZ Porter

Mathildedalin Kantaja NZ Porter

Some time ago I wrote a review about the Mathildedalin Kevät. They impressed me with their unique style. To everyone I was drinking beer with I told about that beer and that the Mathildedalin Kyläpanimo is on the way of redefining the Finnish beer identity.

Anyway. I got another one of their brews from Alko some time ago. It was sitting at my stash and smiling at me: "please drink me, please, please". It was the time to give in. 

The goth you like to drink - Grufti Kellerpils

The goth you like to drink - Grufti Kellerpils

Sometimes a label of a beer bottle can tell a lot, sometimes it tells nothing - even not the best before date, which happened to me in Brussels, where I got pretty nice and decent beers. Beers I couldn't have bought 5 years ago in Germany. I still wouldn't be able to buy cool beers in the town I used to live in Germany, but that is a totally different story. TV-Germany is addicted to its TV-beers, those produced by the biggest breweries in Germany, which dominate the German beer market, but that is yet another story.
