Truly a king under the Mochaccinos of beer

Truly a king under the Mochaccinos of beer

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). While the Hiisi was still spilling its content by itself and me being very frustrated I opened another beer, the Mochaccino Messiah, and let the Hiisi drain itself into limbo. 3,5 € gone. Lesson learned.

M as in Amber. Another Ale on the table

Amber Ale of Mallaskuun Panimo

When I came across the Mallaskun Breweries Beers at Tokmannin I had to buy them all. It is basically my duty to get all the different Finnish Beers tasted. While the list piles up I found the best way to get through is one after another. Foam looks pretty stable. It smells fruity, but also sweet. The first nip went down very well. I was right about the sweetness, its stays nearly through the end, but vanishes shortly before it to make place for a more hoppy sweetness. The body is a little bit to light, but still in range. From a color perspective it is too dark to be called amber.

it's Christmas, ok not quite yet

The Joulu Olut

It was Christmas some time ago, but I haven't drunk my Christmas beer yet. So I guessed that now is the right time for it. Why? Because there was still snow outside and it was pretty warm and cozy inside. It felt like Christmas, and so I opened my present. The Oulu Olut smelt pretty sweet. I also noticed a high content of hops and some citric note. Besides that it looked amber brownish. Foam stability was ok, but it probably vanished a little too fast. I thought of an IPA or at least a strong hopped Ale before I took the first nip. Guess what? It tasted like a strong hopped Ale.

If I had a hammer

Lautering.net - Tasting - yellow hammer summer ale

A long time ago I put the Black Isle brewery onto Lautering.net. A friend of mine added their beers. When I walked through a Finish supermarket I noticed some of their beers. I took their Yellow Hammer Summer Ale together with some others for my stash.

It didn't stay long in my stash. Actually for only three hours. The label on the backside of the bottle states „Save the planet – drink organic“ . I guess they are right. But statements alone don't make good beers. Let's check if it lauters.

Dominus vobiscum

I like Patrizier 2. It's a funny game. You usually start as a merchant and have to make your way up to become a Patrizier by trading with other towns. In the beginning you get one ship to travel from your home town. Most of the time I deal with, you might guess it, beer. I get it in Belgium / Bremen / Hamburg and sell it in Edinburgh. You can sell gallons of beer there. Some other routes include Denmark and Visby. You also have to go to the church in order to donate beer or money.
