Break The Spell

It’s been over a month since my last post here, and ages since the last post in beerdrinking. We flew to England. Traveled in towns and villages, following CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide book and App. Attended a Real Ale festival in York. Drank 125 different beers and ciders over the course of six days. Returned home to madness. Campaign, work-related bar crawls, no time to eat or sleep or see loved ones. Crashing on Friday night – our weekend – after a long day of phone calls and emails going back and forth – Tel Aviv – Paris, Paris – Dublin, London and New York somewhere in-between. Typing and being creative were the last things on my mind. I just wanted to sleep.

The campaign is finally up and like a teenage groupie I find myself driving ‘unnecessarily’, ‘accidentally’ bumping into ‘my’ outdoor ads. Yup, I am THIS lame. And now I have two weekends to rest before flying to an incentive trip with dozens of bar and restaurant owners from all over the country and writing business reviews and preparing corporate visits and whatnot. It’s a chance to recap, train the fingertips to type and the mind to focus on my things, my home-grown passion. I wanna write about the Real Ale Trail. However, we haven’t edited the photos and I haven’t read my notes from the trip yet. And since our return I attended two tastings and drank stuff from The Book and tonight there’s another tasting and more Book beers and if I don’t cover whatever has been consumed over the past two weeks the world will fall apart! Won’t it?

So, The weekend after we returned The Secret Agent and I attended an extensive tasting. One session, 21 beers. I shit you not. We contributed 3 bottles to this session:

Surly Coffee Bender with black pepper, coffee and vanilla aroma and delicate coffee sourness – derived from  cold-pressing the beer in ground coffee beans and results in a tasty, fun drink; Mill Street Coffee Porter grabbed by my Excellent Little Brother on a business trip to Toronto, where coffee is also very dominant, both in the mouth and in the nose, but a bit drier and roastier than the previous one and North Coast Brother Thelonious, A big Belgian beer that holds 9.3% abv and adorns a beautiful label. It’s a spicy one: fruity, nutty, raisins, clove and cinnamon in the nose, very fruity, sweet and slightly alcoholic taste and a sweet fruity finish. Still, despite the high abv. and its Belgianness, it wasn’t a tough drink.

The following week I drove REL and The Actuary (who as I typing this are now ticking and rating in Rome’s craft beer festival) to Baseball Tom’s sunlit bachelor pad in the ‘burbs. We watched Brew Dogs and Brewmasters and tasted beer like Yona Yona Ale that Tom brought back from Thailand, a Japanese APA. It was a pretty ugly beer – filled with weird floaties, with peach and toffee aroma and sweet toffee taste. I didn’t feel the  cascade hops or anything like that – something happened to the content of the can before we opened it. Another APA we drank in the occasion was Three Floyds Alpha King which was pretty good: I’ve had the bottle for quite some time and while its hoppiness started to fade, but soft, orangey bitter taste and a smooth, citrusy finish indicated its previous awesomeness.

Now off to rest for an hour, before heading out to another tasting.

These were beers #303, #304, #305, #306 and #307 I Must Try Before I Die. More to come tonight.

Past Deadline

When I returned to work after the long Rosh HaShana weekend, The Beer Greek remarked that I flunked the deadline I gave myself. 300 ticks by Rosh Hashana, then by the end of the holiday. I know. I had life to attend to. What can I do?
It’s the morning of Yom Kippur now, time for me, non-observant, to catch up on all sorts of things, from laundry to travel plans to work (cos Paris and London and New York and Dublin don’t care much about Yom Kippur and neither does the tight schedule I’m on in real-life) – and to blog. So here it is – the 300 count-up!

Yesterday evening The Secret Agent’s metalhead cousin dropped by. Other than rum educational we opened our bottle of beer #289 – Estrella Damm Inedit. It’s a magnum bottle and we were looking for an opportunity to share it with someone. I fondly remembered this Belgian-style wheat beer, but last night’s bottle was a little oxidized. Hazy golden with a frothy white head – looks as elegant as the bottle – sweet, fruity aroma and sweet taste. Estrella Damm Inedit was created for El Bulli restaurant that was since closed but the beer is still in production. Sexy bottle, if there ever was one, but that’s it.

Then we opened another big-ish bottle, Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale, beer #290. I love Stone beer and so do the 1001 Beers book editors, as there are 4 beers from this brewery in the book. This American Strong Ale is both very hoppy, fruity AND chocolatey and no, it isn’t cacophonic at all.

Blixa and the first beer for the Jewish year

Blixa and the first beer for the Jewish year

Last week, in Rosh Hashana morning, right after I blogged, I opened a bottle of Fuller’s Honey Dew. Timing for beer #291 was perfect, as honey is a traditional new year food – for a sweet start. I try to avoid honey but beer is somewhat of an exception for everything in life.  The UK’s first organic beer pours honey-gold and smells like honey that was left standing and became sweeter and thicker. Honey also dominates the mouth but this is definitely a beer, and a good one, too, with nice maltiness, full body, and a lingering, honey-bitter finish.

Later that day we drank beer #292: Svyturys Ekstra – good-for-a-hot-day-on-the-beach kind of helles that smelled a little corny, even though it contains rice. The Secret Agent and I are not the target audience for beach beer .

Let’s move on – just before Rosh HaShana 4 of us gathered at the Dancing Camel Pub for a small tasting/ rating/ untapping/ ticking session. The Secret Agent didn’t join me, so I brought bottles that he could care less about, i.e. ‘exotic’ (i.e. nasty) lagers from Tahiti and Laos. Yup – after months of searching I finally found a bottle of Beerlao Lager – the light one, which is beer #293, another ricey beer. Hazy golden it poured – and I was expecting clear beer – corn and petrol aroma and unpleasing bitter sensation in the mouth. Ugh. Things got better when Dead Swedish Girl schlapped beer #294 – Samuel Smith’s Taddy Porter. We’ll be in Yorkshire next week, but our beer sampling agenda is full already so I’m glad I got to taste this lovely roasty-smoky goodness. It tastes a little alcoholic and has these really cool hints of sausage that I’m a real sucker for – guilty pleasure for a 21 years vegetarian…  Beer #295 was a real tread – Ninkasi Tricerahops Double IPA from Eugene, OR. It’s a good one. Orange, clear-going-hazy with a big white head, faint hoppy aroma of onion peel and floral, oniony bitterness and a little dry – tasty and refreshing. Thank you Baseball Tom for getting your friend to bring it!

5 more til the 300th beer in this project and I’ll stick to American beers, that dominate the book. Widmer Brothers Hefe Weizen is beer #296 and it is a disappointment: tasteless, aroma-less. This is probably yet another case of getting old bottles to the beer desert we live in, because seriously, our bottle was like a homebrew gone wrong and it can’t be the case. Earlier this year we sampled their Reserve Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout that was wonderful, so I’m sure it’s not the beer or the batch, but rather shipping, storing and handling of this specific bottle. Next.

Great Lakes Brewing Company from Cleveland’s been caught our attention lately, with curious beers such as Elliot Ness and Rye of the Tiger. They have 2 beers in the book: Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold is beer #297 and the second helles/ Dortmunder in this entry. As opposed to the Lithuanian beer above, this stuff is good: A little pickle juice, sweet and a little plastic aroma, sweet  and then bitter taste, pickly too. Medium body, fizzy and yet smooth, bitter finish. Nothing too complex, but something I’d be happy to drink again. Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald got its own entry in the best beer blog I’ve ever seen: Beer Labels in Motion on tumblr- whata wonderful homage to a wonderful porter, that is beer #298: very dark ruby-red with tan head. Slightly roasty aroma with a little wine and condensed coffee, tastes roasty and bitter with a little cucumber(!) Medium bodied, slightly roasty finish, robust.

Last two beers in this loooong entry/list are brewed by Avery Brewing Co. from Colorado: beer #299 is Ellie’s Brown Ale is nice and complex: chocolate and warm carrot juice aroma, chocolate and malt taste. Medium body, soft chocolate finish. Avery The Maharaja is the second Double IPA in this post and it is also the very random beer #300 I Must Try Before I Die. It’s a hoppy beer with pine, many flowers and lychee notes that tastes a little old, yet bitter and hoppy with some almond bitterness too. Full body, long and bitter finish.

And now what? 701 more beers to try before I die. Got a couple more that I drank and haven’t written about – hopefully I’ll get to it in the next holiday, around Tuesday-Wednesday, a bunch of bottle in the fridge, an upcoming trip to Northern England and a long journey ahead. At least The Beer Greek won’t scold me tomorrow at work.

May Contain Traces of Nuts

samuel smith nut brown ale

Yes, I picked Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale for tonight’s dinner because of its name. I am going nuts and that was the one bottle in the fridge I felt like drinking. Don’t like it? Shoot me (and I’ll be forever grateful, though it probably means that I’ll miss my chance of visiting Samuel Smith’s brewery in North Yorks). Maybe it’s my state of exhaustion, but this brown ale IS nutty! Chestnuty, even. It has a chestnut-brown colour and it smells like an almost rotten roasted chestnut – do you know what I mean or do you get your winter fix all fresh and local and not a bit sketchy, like the selection in the hellhole where we live? The taste completes the aroma, a little sweet, like that spoiled chestnut taste, which works just fine in this beer. Gently carbonated, robust and a long, mellow bitter finish, this is a pretty good and balanced beer.

Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale is beer #269 I Must Try Before I Die. I think I’ll go to get some sleep now.

Somebody Put Something in My Drink

Water, yeast, malt and hops are fun, but an unexpected ingredient (that is NOT Special-K) can take the beer to new and interesting directions. Over the past year we drank a bunch of beers with fun additions,  here are a few of them:

The first on the list is Elysian Avatar Jasmine IPA that Dagan brought back from AHA that took place in Seattle, Elysian Brewing Co.’s hometown. This is a beer flavoured with jasmine flowers. It tastes bitter, but in a jasmine tea sort of way (assuming you don’t add sugar to your herbal tea; if you can tolerate bitterness in beer, you should enjoy your tea as is), very mild. The beer smells like white tea with jasmine and that sweetish soda aroma. The truth is that I didn’t like it that much.

Hell or High Watermelon Wheat by 21st Amendment is the brewery’s summer beer – a wheat beer brewed with 200 lb. fresh watermelon. Not sure whether they add whole watermelon or if they get rid of the rind and only add the red fruit, but its aroma reminded me of the inner part of the rind, the white part. It’s a bit tarty, a bit fruity, slightly bitter and quite refreshing. Note the beautiful, detailed illustration on the can.

Pietra is a Vienna lager from the island of Corsica, France, where chestnuts grow and milled into flour. Chestnut flour is added to Pietra’s mash and provides a unique, local twist as well as fermentable sugars. The result is quite pleasing, with chestnut aroma and sweet, nutty taste. Yet there’s something very ordinary in this beer and despite the unusual ingredient Pietra is a decent session beer.

The book lists a beer brewed by California’s Nectar Ales: Hemp Ale. Here, sterilized, THC-free hemp seeds are added to the mash. You won’t get high drinking this beer, but nevertheless you may face difficulty when searching for it. The label on my bottle reads Humboldt Brown, with a secondary title in small typeface “ale brewed with hemp”. The six-pack package proudly states the original name. Maybe it’s a regulatory/ moral compromise? Anyway, this beer is far from being a gimmick. It has a rich malty, cocoa aroma and tastes hoppy and sweet at the same time with chocolate finish.

And lastly, a beer I’ve been looking forward to try since I opened the book for the first time. Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer. Garlic, tomato, oregano and basil in a liquid form? Hell yeah! We sampled it in a ‘specialty beer’ tasting in December. This beer has light body and its special ingredients are very apparent: garlic and oregano aroma and dominant spicy taste that doesn’t leave much room for beer itself. No hops, no malt. It’s a cool gimmick, but not much.

Finally, a much-appropriate song:

Avatar Jasmine IPA, Hell or High Watermelon Wheat, Pietra, Hemp Ale and Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer are beers #182, #183, #184, #185 and #186 I Must Try Before I Die.

Dog Brews

We’re back from Switzerland, still enchanted by The Young Gods’ brilliant concert. I would have paraphrased and said that It’s Good to Be Back*, but I’d be lying. It is never good to be back from a holiday, though our bank account is definitely relieved that we’re back.

Soon I’ll start working on my notes and turn them into a couple of entries about Swiss  beer and beer in Switzerland, but these will be picture-heavy entries and after an all-nighter we pulled at the airport (where beer tasting took place too, of course!) I just don’t feel like messing with Windows Picture Manager or delegating the task to The Secret Agent, aka Der Fotoshopfenkunstmeister. We are both knackered. Instead, let’s talk about dogs. We haven’t talked about dogs for ages in this blog, not since October, when Brewdog Rip tide was reviewed. There’s a Lion Stout, Hop monkey, Goose Island and even a Black Cat, but it is a truth universally acknowledged that dogs rule the world of beer.

turbodogWe recently drank two doggie beers. The first is Abita Turbodog from Abita Springs, a small town in the New Orleans Metropolitan area. Abita Brewing Company uses the town’s spring water. Wikipedia tells us that “[i]n August 2005, Stuff Magazinecalled Abita’s Turbodog Ale the best beer made in America”. Wikipedia also tells us that Stuff magazine is a sleazy men’s mag that merged to Maxim in 2007. 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die was first published in 2008, I think, so the beer must have kept its rep for a few years.

It’s an alright brown ale, with cherry, old-chocolate and sweet flowery aroma and sweet chocolaty taste, faint toffee and a little yeast.  It’s an alright beer but due to its carbonation and richness, is a little too heavy to drink an entire 12oz. bottle by oneself. Luckily we share.

fatdogNot only did Stoudt Brewing Co. named their Imperial Stout Fat Dog Stout, they probably donated the money that would have otherwise been paid for a graphic designer to their local SPCA. Yes, it is THAT amateurish. Look:

But judging beer by its label is wrong. Inside the bottle rested a great imperial oatmeal stout, the blackest. How much more black could this be? The answer is none. None more black. Italso has a really nice tan head. Underneath, good ol’ roasty aroma, with some coffee and unexpected cotton candy. It tastes rich, bitter and roasty and a little dry and finishes roasty as well. A really yummy stout it is! Highly recommended.

Turbodog and Fat Dog Stout are beers #148 and #149 I Must Try Before I Die. More entries to be published soon. Meanwhile, goodnight.

Monday Morning Blues.

I don’t suffer from Monday Morning Blues, simply because work week in Israel starts on Sunday. Today’s different as the semester begins. Soon I’ll take the bus to work, where a load of missions are awaiting on my desk. Then, in the evening, school begins. A full semester, a re-test in 4 weeks from now. I kinda wanna kill myself or drop out and enjoy carefree afternoons with The Secret Agent, but I still haven’t won that ambitious devil that’s sitting on my shoulder, whispering “study hard and get a degree”.  For lack of a better topic, here are two beers I drank that the only things they have in common are their  their country of origin and their appearance in the 1001 book.

Lost Coast Brewery Downtown Brown, a brown ale with a cubist-like label was sampled at a tasting that was held at the Dancing Camel brewpub. I’m writing this because until recently DC also had a beer named Downtown Brown. Well, ‘downtown’ and ‘brown’ rhyme and it’s not a surprise that 37 different downtown browns are listed on Ratebeer, but Lost Coast’s is the serious/ popular/ widely available of them all. I swear that sharing our bottle on that location was coincidental though. Anyway, the beer pours dark brown with a tan head, as expected from the name and type. The exotic fruit aroma, derived from hops, sweet fruitiness and very delicate bitter undertones in the mouth are far from what was promised in the tasting notes shared in the 1001 book: where’s the nutty aroma? The coffee bitterness? Not in my tasting notes, though looking at the ones my tasting mates shared – nut, caramel, coffee and malt sure met their orifices. Beer had a considerably light body with a nice fizz and long finish where the hops appear with faint bitterness. It wasn’t a bad beer and I certainly wasn’t tuned-in.

Yuengling Dark Brewed Porter hails from the US’ oldest brewery, located in Pottsville, PA, an old coal mining town. There’s a good chance that The Secret Agent and I will visit the brewery one day, as it’s only a 30 minute drive from Centralia (click for vintage-net). In my personal 1001 places I must see before I die, there’s a page dedicated to Centralia (mental note: finish reading Donald Harington’s Let Us Build Us A City by the end of the year. Are there any breweries located in lost/ ghost towns?). This brew is made with lager yeast and is bottom fermented, a method said to be traditional but in today’s perspective is quite unique – it has a light body for a porter and it’s easily drinkable – not at all a bad thing. Yuengling Dark Brewed Porter pours dark opaque brown and smells like the combination of coke and Rosh HaShana honey cake, which in my family it means clove-loaded. It’s a slightly bitter beer that tastes a little like coke. Malty finish and fizzy and fun to drink.

Lost Coast Downtown Brown and Yuengling Dark Brewed Porter were beers #123 and #124 I Must Try Before I Die and now I’m heading off to work and then school. Fall Semester starts today. Guess I should be grateful for the weekend-long semester break I had, ugh!

Forgive me whoever, for I have sinned.

Last weekend bore two beer-centered meetings: a small bottle-can tasting at our place on Friday night and a one-on-one get-together with The Ovarian Sis at the Porter & Sons on Saturday afternoon.

Tasting was mellow. Most of the regulars are family men and spend the weekend with their kin. My kin and I had two people over this time and some bottles that normally don’t make it to the tasting sessions were opened: various unrateable homebrews and stuff from Beer of the Month Club, which usually contain rather mediocre stuff, from obscure and rather forgettable breweries.  Beer you never hear about nor couldn’t live without them. I was quite surprised to find out that Lancaster Milk Stout from Lancaster Brewing Co., that arrived in one of the latest shipping is listed as one of the 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die book.

I was looking forward to receiving Lancaster’s samples, because one of the beers we received is called Amish Four Grain. I’ve been a sucker for anything Amish since my Greyhound trips in the 1990’s and my introduction to quilting, which happened more or less at the same time. There’s a drawing of a silhouette of an Amish carriage on the label – how awesome is that? –  Alas, the Four Grain was disappointing. Tasted like old malt, unpleasant bitterness. The milk stout was somewhat better: dark brown-black with a light brown head and smells like chocolate milk made with dark chocolate and also some roast. Tastes bitter, delicate but rather bland, light bodied and softly carbonated. Beer was OK, but had there not been the mission, I could’ve lived without it.

It was strange drinking this specific bottle. I went vegan last October and solved the conflict of drinking milk stout in a rather rabbinical way: I didn’t buy the bottle especially for the tasting;  got it as a part of the monthly deal on an account the lacto-vegetarian Secret Agent and I share; we split the bottle between four people. Enough of the apologetica: drinking cow-stout is uncool, brewing it is even uncooler.

Fast forward to Saturday. Early evening with the Ovarian Sis, one of Israel’s beer pioneers. Drank Oketz by HaDubim and for the second round I opted for Newcastle Brown Ale, that I recalled was in the book.

While writing the paragraphs about Lancaster Milk Stout I suddenly recalled a conversation I had 15 years ago, in a London squat. I just went vegan for the first time (and then lasted around a year) and  my buddy Orly filled me up about hidden animal abuse in food. She said that Newcastle use blood in order to dye their beer in that deep brown colour. Back then I didn’t even know what Newcastle beer was, but the info stuck, apparently. I googled “is newcastle brown ale vegan” and landed in Barnivore who unsurprisingly had nothing to say about blood, but mentioned isinglass.

Beer was tasty, but I’m a little sad.

There must be alternatives to fish-derived agents.

#48, #49 beers I crossed off the list of Beers I must Try Before I Die.

Heebs Drink Brews

It was love on first sight. The moment I saw a picture of Shmaltz’ Coney Island lagers on Beer Ticker and Traveler Dror’s blog (The most appropriate Hebrew alert so far), I knew I had to get me a bottle.  I mean – Coney Island’s sideshow AND beer for the same price – the best bargain ever since Route 66 Root Beer.

When my Excellent Little Brother flew with his wife, ala Li’l SIL to NY last summer, in order to find an apartment and help her settle down before school starts, I sent him to Wholefoods with a small wish-list and he came back to Israel with a bottle of the Sword Swallower (and Southern Tier Oak Aged Unearthly and Oomegang’s Three Philosophers). Don’t remember whether I asked him to bring this one specifically or let him choose whatever he fancies. In any case, The Sword Swallower that arrived at our place last September graced our fridge with her beauty while we were patiently waiting for a good opportunity to open that bottle. A short correspondence with don’t remember who revealed that Dror has a He’Brew bottle at home. He was willing to share his stash and after a few weeks of messaging back and forth we found one evening that the three of us were free to meet. Much to our delight Dror brought along 3 different bottles, one of which appears in the 1001 book – cool!

All four bottles were past their prime. Ours was bought in August, Dror’s even before that.

We started with Genesis Ale, Shmaltz’s first creation (that recently underwent face lift). This amber ale pours hazy red with some while foam and sports oily citrus-honey aroma. It has rich, bitter taste with faint hoppiness. After a few sips the taste become sweeter. With a medium body, oily feeling and bitter finish this is a fun beer to drink – it’s mellow and sweet. Not too extreme, but that’s just fine.

Second was the brown ale now sold as Messiah Nut Brown Ale but sold to Dror in days of yore as Messiah Bold. This one pours cloudy coke-coloured with a minimal tan head. I smelled roast, soft chocolate aromas and wine. Taste was roasty as well, sweet with apparent chocolate. Its body was thin and watery, finish was long and  carbonation pretty muchlong  gone.

This was the weakest link in the tasting.

Look at these beauties!

Our bottle of Coney Island Sword Swallower, IPA brewed with lager yeast, came next. This beer with hazy golden colour with minimal white head bore the aroma of date honey and vanilla – the Body Shop kind of heavy vanilla. It starts sweet and innocent but then the taste explodes into bitterness. It’s a little oily and sleek medium-bodied beer, carbonated with a long and bitter finish. Weird beer but I liked it.

We finished with Bittersweet Lenny from page 64 in the book. Ruby copper colour, cloudy with tan foam. Its aroma is rich, full of raisins and alcohol. Its taste is bitter, soapy with some fruit. Long aftertaste, full body, smooth with minimal carbonation.

Dror was kind enough to leave us the labels, so we him donated the Coney Island bottle cap.

To sum up this post, that also covers the 11th beer out of the 1001 I’m gonna try before I die, that’s how I learned about Lenny Bruce:

I’m out near Santa Fe hitching out for the warmer days

I first learned the true meaning of the term “Land of Enchantment” when I started trading art with photographer Mary Hockenbery, some 9 years ago, shortly after The Secret Agent and I got married. For 4.5 years after tying the knot we had were planning to spend the wedding money on a cross-country trip and when I day-dreamed about that trip Mary’s photos, especially the ones from her then-home New Mexico, were my point of reference.

When the road-trip became real in the spring of 2007, the Secret Agent and I spent about like 3 days in NM – mostly on Route 66 with a short detour to the Old Route in Santa Fe and from there up north, to Mary and Touffic’s adobe for the night. Mary’s Photos prepared me to the endless open road more than any guidebook and planted my love to the state. WordPress decided to act all cocky today, so you’ll actually have to click on the link to view Mary Hockenbery’s photohraphy, because it wouldn’t let me embed a pic here, despite Mary’s permission.

So what all this has to do with Beer? Oh, the bottles we got from Santa Fe Beer Co. via Beer of The Month Club made a good excuse to dwell over Mary’s Flickr. We drank the two a couple of weeks ago but due to the craziness that accompanied Beers 2012 Expo in Tel Aviv and then my birthday, I put the review on hold. Hailing from Santa Fe, the unusual triangular labels come as no surprise – why be conventional when there are other options?

First we sampled Nut Brown Ale – I love anything nutty in my beer (no pun intended?) and held high expectations for it. I wasn’t too impressed by the biscuit and cocoa aroma, but the taste – delicate bitterness, was nice. Also, the malty finish and smoothness were to my liking. Then we drank the State Pen Porter, which wasn’t bad either: coffee and roasted aroma and a strong bitter taste that reminded me of bittersweet chocolate and coffee. The beer was rather flat and the aftertaste was short. The beer wasn’t bad but a little one-dimensional in our opinion.

I’d like to taste more of their beer and re-taste these two; shipping doesn’t do much good to beer. Guess we must re-visit Santa Fe.
