There are those days. You open a bottle of beer and it is sour. Happened to me with a Hiisi with its best before date still some days to go. (happens to me with other bottled beers from micro breweries rather often actually).
For Christmas I got a nice package of different beers from the Nürnberg Area. In November I went there and shopped at the Bierothek, a bottle shop. I had a very nice discussion with their sales person about the KBS and left the shop with 6 beers.
As you might remember I had an IPA from the Mustan Virran Panimo some time ago. It wasn't that good and as I had another one from them in my stash I opened it and.
Some months ago I had Mustan Virran Panimo's Grand Cru, which I liked. I thought it was time for another one. I looked into my stash (which had grown again) and got their IPA. Due date was still in range. I was very enthusiastic.
Ok, I keep this review brief and short this time. If you have read my review of the Rock Kivi Lager you might remember that I had problems with its best before date. On this one the best before date really needs to be moved one or even two month down.
On my trip to Savonlinna I also stopped for two days in Kuopio. There I bought some of the local produced beers, especially the Rock Kivi (Lager), which according to the bottle label is a dry-hopped lager, which I was intrigued to buy because of the funny label.
