    Good morning.

    I am currently writing a few cards (some people still do this) before I send them this afternoon. Having a lovely stay in Britanny.. and drinking Affligem.

    Here’s my favorite shot so far - under the sun one could think I am in Croatia or any Southern Europe Mediterranean coast.

    Looking good out here in Umbria Italy.

    Things could be worse.

    Another one from New Ulm . . .

    Clear amber gold color with white cap and excellent lacing.

    Aroma of toasty malt and spicy slightly herbal hops.

    Taste is grain forward with more roast presence than I caught in the scent. A mild caramely sweetness appears mid palate and hops are waving their hands for attention by the finish. Aftertaste is a good blend of all those flavors.

    Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

    Very acceptable version of an Amber Lager.

    Absolutely freaking delicious. If I rated beers this would be all 5s. Had to tie up some loose ends at work so I’m probably a one-and-done for now.

    I am having a Supah Sik Spells Imperial IPA from Mikkeller, not Denmark but San Diego, ABV 8.00%, IBU 75. The flavor is mild and sweet honey and caramel, significant tropical fruit mango, apricot, grapefruit and pine resin at the end. It is well balanced, juicy and very drinkable but a tad on the watery side. Overall pretty good but not the best DIPA.

    North Coast distribution is spotty around here so when some shows up I grab it . . .

    Clear light gold color with white cap and lacing.

    Clean, bright aroma of floral hops and ripe yellow fruit.

    Taste at first is fruity malty with hops sitting atop like icing. Belgian yeast comes across as spicy with a touch of banana but nothing heavy handed. The flavors are almost light yet come across with depth. There is a layered complexity here that rises the whole a good deal higher than standard. Strong yet satisfying.

    Medium texture with more than enough carbonation yet not so much that a vigorous pour won't smooth out.

    I'm tempted to call this a little brother of Pranqster but at 7.9 ABV it's a big boy on it's own. Good example of a Belgian that hits all the notes on pitch without any wandering surprises.

    Reviews are oddly mixed on this one. 3F tried, and succeeded IMO, with making a traditional Märzen. It is not a $9/bomber beer however. Cheers all & enjoy what's in your mug today!:beers::beers:

    Pre dinner beer - “Watermelon Wheat” by Crate Brewery, London, UK:



    Tart fruit nose. Lite sour lemon, and watermelon. Weak and thin, but it does taste like watermelon. Would be very nice on a hot sunny day (its cool and rainy here)...

    Ok, knocked out a few chores today, time for a refreshing beverage:
    [​IMG]

    Think the humidity got to my phone's camera lens. Either way, that branch on the left/right of which you see maybe half its full length fell recently onto another branch and is now suspended precariously. Not sure when it fell, but I heard something fall the other day, assumed the cats had knocked something over in the kitchen, though I never found anything. Wonder if it was the falling branch I heard.

    I wouldn't have mentioned anything, but people seemed to like the last time I told stories of falling branches. You're welcome.

    The Ardent Pilsner still tastes good although its initially light hop profile has faded a little - a nice pilsner malt breadiness and a balancing bitterness is good enough for me.

    Writing before sending I had heard was the proper way to do them. That vaguely seems like how we once did it. But you know how memories are.

    Ok, moved on to the beer that ended up last in a four-way blind competition (by a fair but not huge margin):
    [​IMG]

    A light, mostly malty without being too sweet (though the line can be seen). Maybe a little bit of a citrusy hop profile to go with the toffee/caramel maltiness, medium light carbonation may accentuate the maltiness a little.
