March session #1

The first rating session in March was a rather diverse night. Some of the beers we had was beers was the bottom of the barrel stuff that had been waiting in my fridge to be rated when everything else was gone. Other were non-alc Carribean beers, or Spanish supermarket beers.

On the brighter side we had received a couple of interesting beers from Eastern Germany brought by Katrin Hintze (Vielen Dank, Katrin!). Best of thos were two beers from the Uckermärker Brauerei in Chorin.

Other very interesting beers (but perhaps not tasty) included a non alcohol Iranian beer which was bought by Fredrik Lindström on his skiing trip(!!) in Iran. Furthermore OMH member Marie had been in Zambia and returned with two Zambian lagers plus the legendary sorghum beer Chibuku!!

However, as the Chibuku left a layer of meal in our mouths we felt we needed to clean our throats with, so we looked in the vintage cellar and tasted some excellent vintage beers before we called it the night. I was really surprised just how well the winner of the night, Slottskällan Kloster had developed in under three years, and got near angry upon sampling the superb, but sadly (grr!) discontinued Falcon Gammelbrygd.
