The Beer Gatherer

Blogging about Israeli beer in general and Israeli craft beer in particular, following 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die and other beer musings.

Two for Two

2 drafts are on the work but until I complete them, here are two more beers I can put together under one banner – American Beer. That’s broad enough and covers both Two Brothers Domain DuPage and Tröegs Troegenator. Hey, they have another thing in common! They are both European style, one’s a biere de garde, the other is doppelbock. Yup, I’m stretching it…

Domaine DuPage pours cloudy amber and smells of chocolate praline and jam. It tastes somewhat watery at first and then caramelish, a little butterscotch sweetness appears. Medium-bodied, sweetish finish, smooth texture. Not bad at all.

The Troegenator pours clear reddish brown with a quickly dissolving head. It has cola and faint raisins aroma, tastes very sweet and a little winy. Smooth texture, soft carbonation, long finish. There’s nothing new or innovative about this beer but nonetheless it is  tasty and nice.

Here’s another something common about these beers – they are OK. Nothing brilliant but compared to some of the wonders we wrote about, OK is just OK.

Domaine DuPage and Troegenator are beers #228 and #229 I must Try Before I Die.
