May Session 2000

The beers we tried this night came from three different sources. First of all I had been to Budapest, Hungary myself, and brought back quite a few beers from there, including three tasty wheat beers from Ilzer Sörgyar.

Another pile of beers came from Josh Oakes in Canada. These beers including the malty Creemore Springs Premium Lager. Don Bible in the US had also sent us a load of beers from the US and Latin America.

During the night we had the pleasure to welcome no less than 4 new countries to the list: Ecuador, Chile, HongKong and Guernsey, but the winners of the night were bost from the US: The outstanding Belgian style double dark Celis Double Ale and the light bodied but wellhopped thirstquenching Columbia Kölsch Brand Ale, both of which scored exceptionally well.
