    Re: What Beers Are You Drinking These Days?

    I did go to the fantastic beer bar in Söderbärke yesterday. I did drink almost exclusively American beer. Most of them very good but the 2 best came from the same brewery: Oskar Blouse Brewery. Jackmans American pale ale and the totally fantastic Gordon IPA. The later was one of the best beers I ever had in my life. The taste was still in my mouth several minutes after I did finish it.

    Re: What Beers Are You Drinking These Days?

    I did visit Gothenburg’s and maybe Sweden’s best beer bar The Rover for the second time this year just before the Rolling Stones concert that was my prime goal. I do really love some of the micro beer from a very small local brewery called Dugges that they carry. They got a double IPA called bullocks with is a very god IPA for Swedish standards. I don’t understand the “double” though. Their real highlight is there porter “half idiot” though. Very very thick and individual stile with a lot of liquorice in the taste that I’m not used to find in porters. Double would have been very motivated here instead of bullocks. By the way. The owner and one man operator of the brewery also do deliver the beer by his private car to the few bars in the city that carries it.

    Re: What Beers Are You Drinking These Days?

    It's Sunday afternoon. Pizza and beer.

    Today, it's a bomber of Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye. Never had this, as it's realtively new to our market.

    Appearance: Deep red, bordering on brown but shot through with nice ruby highlights. Creamy, dense head that lasts throughout the glass.

    Nose: Caramel-sweet with walnuts and spice at first. Then, orange peels and a hint of orange blossom. But the lingering impression is sweet fruitiness.

    Palate: Rich, oily, and tongue-coating. Medium-level carbonation keeps the heavy mouthfeel from being cloying. Layers of bracing bitterness sandwiched between toffee-nut and pie spice. There's a definite citrus backdrop, as in the aroma, but it is not the overwhelming grapefruit of many American ales. Malt and hops play together very nicely.

    Finish: Long and malty, bittersweet, with spice from the rye peppering the tongue.

    This is a very nice ale that improves greatly as it warms up. I think in the future I'll try to drink this at about 55* instead of the 40ish it started at today. I also think this would pair beautifully with a good Stilton or a well-aged cheddar.
    I love rye beers. The spiciness and rich mouthfeel is hard to match with other grains. In this beer, it balances what would otherwise just be another big IPA. Glad this is a permanent fixture in our market, unlike many of the pale ales I've picked up from other parts of the country on recent trips.

    Re: What Beers Are You Drinking These Days?

    Today I kegged 2 beers, a Double Red Ale at 8.35% ABV and a Extra Pale Ale at 5.53% ABV. Both were very tasty, and then I blew my overhoppped pale ale so the Extra Pale ale is now carbing.

    The EPA will be the quickest brew to drink at 2 weeks I've ever done, my other tap has some 2 month old mocha porter. It also has chocolate and vanilla but it's so faint...too much coffee and it's a tad overpowering. Just have to tweak it next time!
