I haven’t done this in a while, and realised I have photos of three new tasty beverages I haven’t posted. In order of favourite (and what I can remember):
I don’t have the bottle any longer, so I don’t have much in the way of detail. I have even less detail on what it was like! This O’Hara’s Irish Stout was imbibed on Paddy’s morning – note the BBQ is going – and was our first tipple of many that day. Firstly it’s nothing like Guinness. More chocolate and almost oatmeal. It were tasty, shame we only had one to share. Ooh, the bottle says its 6%.
Shepherd Neame’s Spitfire! It doesn’t say so on the front, but it’s an amber (always a favourite with me). I’m into planes, more WWI than WWII but still. No skunky smell, and a nice light flavour befitting the light 4.5%. And I loved the bottlecap.
Finally we have a beer my hubby last had in Prague. I wasn’t terribly impressed – it smelled a bit vile and didn’t have much taste. Vratislav, and I have no idea of alky content, sorry. In defence of the beer, they have to pasteurise it for export due to EU regulations and that just murders Eastern European beer. Drink it where it was born and you won’t regret it.
Is it weird that I want to try the first one just because the bottle is pretty? LOL
Not at all! The bottlecap made me want to try the Spitfire 🙂
I don’t know any of these beers! Everyone here in Holland only loves Heineken or Amstel, and no one really bothers to taste new ones. 😦
Blah and blah! Although I think Amstel is slightly better?
I’m ashamed to say this, but I don’t taste any difference!
Those are the prettiest damn pictures of beer I’ve ever seen! I like your photography as much as your brushwork.
