Beer & crayfish

Beer & crayfish

The 10th of September the group gathered in Lars and Anna's apartment to drink beer and eat crayfish. This time two new people got involved in the ratings Lasse (who brought us a couple of Estonian beers) and Oscar. The beer we had was brought home from travels to Nürnberg in Bavaria, Grimstad in Norway and a couple we've found at home.

The best scoring beer of the evening was Altstadthof Schwarzbier, a beer brewed at the nice Nürnberg brewpub Hausbrauerei Altstadthof. Though we were unfortunate enough to drop the glass that contained the beer before everyone got a chance to try it... Another favourite was the Estonian porter Karl Friedrich from the brewery Saku Õlletehas. Less alcoholic than many other Baltic style bottom fermented porters and also less sweet, but still very fullbodied. Other treats were the two beers from the brewery Löwen Bräu in Buttenheim (not to be mixed up with the bigger Munich brewery with an almost identical name). Both their Weissbier and their Ungepfundetes Lagerbier, an extremely complex lager with low carbonation, were top class.

On the specialty side we had Lindemans Cuvée Rene 1994, a gueuze far less sweet and more authentic to the original style than Lindeman's other products. From the brewers Fischer in Greuth we had a Rauchbier, a heavily smoked specialty that I just love. Quite challenging though...

In the bottom of the list we'll find almost all the Norwegian beers we tried this time. All of them bland uninteresting lagers.
