Day 8 is the strongest so far clocking in at 7.4% ABV. Other than the noticable alcohol on the nose, not a huge difference in other characteristics.
Day 7 is Perlenzauber. This 5.4% ABV German pale ale is different than most American or English pale ales ove tried. The malt body is lighter. No sweetness and no bitterness, with notes of citrus.
A few days of catch-up on the Advent beer calendar. Day 6 was another light body lager with a clean finish. Not bad, but not outstanding either.
Advent Beer Calendar day-5 was a 5.4% German Zwickel with flavors of sweet malts with a touch of toastyness.
Decent, easy drinking with clean finish. Clocking in at 5.1% ABV, Beer Advent Calendar day-4 is brewed in Germany.
German Beer Advent calendar day-3 is a somewhat bland 5.9% lager, with an unpleasant aftertaste, from Austria? Hmmm.
German Beer Advent Calendar day 2 was an enjoyable 5.6% ABV weisse beer. Light bodied with a touch of sweetness and clean finish. I have to admit that my expectations were pretty low going in, so pleasantly surprised.
We found the Käuzle Helles Lager quite refreshing. Yeah…that was yesterday, but I still clearly remember that after 30+miles on a bicycle, multiple hydration stations, a well deserved snack and social beverage with friends, that while soaking up to my neck in hot water in the dark…ilI felt it replenished life sustaining nutrients.
…for me, and a Gold Record, with a passion fruit Fruitful Endeavor sidecar, for the lady.
…come on!, it’s a Celebration (fresh hop IPA). The most wonderful time of the year…fresh hop beer season.
