As I now have a new box of beers at my disposal I will write more here. Many are the favourites that I discovered from the advent calendar, while some are new or variations of previous tried beers.
First we have Barbar Bok winter version of the Barbar blonde I had before, one of the few blonde beers I really like.
This one is much darker and sweeter, with a gradual pleasant bitterness coming through at the end. Standing at 8%. Nice oily texture leaving you wanting more. Smell of yeast. Strange to say but it also has a warm quality to it, not as much as a satan red, and I want another one already.
Side note: Ive found my Battersea beer festival booklet and will be using it and my scrambled typsy writings within it to entertain you at a later point in time
Okay okay another blonde beer but this time I seem to be looking forward to it.
This stands at 8%, seriously did my subconscious do this on purpose picking lots of strong ones, and this one I can feel. The strength is there and it’s really nice. This one by the way is Barbar, a strong ale made with honey and it really works. I have had ales before with honey but they either havent been balanced well or you just can’t taste it. The sweetness is really there but it never gets overpowering, even by the time you finish the glass. Cant say theres much other taste apart from barley and wheat, but you find yourself wanting more. I’m having trouble commenting on the aroma as my nose seems to be taking a day off.
After reading bottle, theres corriander in it?! Never would have known and the last time I had a corriander beer it was horrible, while this one is delicious, good job.
