    Lunch refreshment . . .

    [​IMG]

    Light yellow gold color with white cap.

    Aroma of soft, bready malt with floral, spicy hops. A note of citrus also which I presume comes from the hops.

    Taste on entry is approachable malt like a soft bread yeast roll. Hops are present in a supporting role. The overall effect is a well integrated whole similar to a European Lager. Hops build ever so slightly leaving a refreshing bitterness in the aftertaste.

    Light texture with balancing carbonation.

    Overall this is a lighter style traditional lager with enough flavor to keep things interesting without any sense of heaviness. Flawless, well executed beer that I find very pleasing.

    It would appear that I’m going to do nothing today but drink, this is #3 for the day, and on page 1 no less so I'll take a break after this one. I had to share the lacing pic though, because yesterday I had a unicorn, today I have a puma/lion jumping out of my beer. I couldn't make this up if i tried.

    As far as the beer goes, it smells incredible but tastes like pure alcohol. 7.4% ABV feels like 12% .... The last time I had this beer was 2013.

    I went to the local Lidl upon recommendation looking for 3 Monts...no luck. I may have to cross over into France and look for it there - Cheers!

    My father-in-law and I drove the 3.5 hours from his home base in Bettendorf, IA to Decorah, IA for the sole purpose of visiting Toppling Goliath.

    Lots of snow-covered farmland along the way.

    But also some nice scenery as well.

    Gotta love the name of this road (Bierman Road)

    Arriving at Decorah. Notice the Norwegian flag. The place feels much more like Minnesota than Iowa (the border is just a dozen miles to the north).

    Kees Export Porter 1750.
    Label reads 'Porter' but the commercial description speaks of a heavy 'Imperial Russian Stout', brewed according to an English recipe dating back to 1750 (exported to Russia in those days).
    Cheers!

    Brewed with cucumber, which feels a little harsh. Crisp and refreshing otherwise, with a hint of citrus. More of a summer beer, really.

    It's rare that you actually get vanilla, but by golly this stuff has vanilla in it.
