Insel Kap

Beer #3303 is an oatmeal stout brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. A solid stout, reasonably thick and creamy, quite fruity for a stout to be honest, more like a black IPA, a little roasty with coffee, a touch of chocolate.…

Baltic Stout

Beer #3289 is a stout brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. A smooth creamy stout with a firm roasty bitterness, coffee, hint of licorice, some chocolate. There’s a sweetness behind the scenes but it’s the roastiness you notice. The 7.5% ABV…

Insel Herb

Beer #3279 is a bitter brewed by Insel-Brauerei in Germany. My first from this German brewery and not the last either as I’ve got two more of theirs in the fridge. Moderate bitterness, mostly dry but a touch of sweetness,…

Pils

Beer #2931 is a pilsner brewed by Krombacher in Germany. For a non alcoholic beer this is pretty decent. It’s grainy, citrusy, maybe a touch perfumey, and has a nice bitterness to it. I’ve had far worse full strength beers.…

Original Helles Alkoholfrei

Beer #2853 is a wheat ale brewed by Weihenstephan in Germany. It’s still strictly a beer so I’ll include it in my mission. It’s not alcohol free, coming in with a 0.5% ABV. It’s a bit on the thin side,…

Holzar-Bier

Beer #2761 is a dark ale brewed by Hoss in Germany. So much for best laid plans! I couldn’t resist having a proper beer and thankfully it’s a good one, a sweet malty dark lager, smooth and creamy, with caramel,…

Konig Ludwig Dunkel

Beer #1743 is a dunkel brewed by Schlosbrauerei Kaltenberg in Germany. A fairly enjoyable but pretty mild dunkel, tasting of sweet caramel with some chocolate. It’s low on bitterness but it’s drinkable if nothing special. The bottle size is 500ML…

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen

Beer #1560 is a smoked ale brewed by Brauerei Heller in Bamberg, Germany. A surprisingly enjoyable ale, sweet malt, mild bitterness, and a wonderfully restrained (by Rex Attitude standards anyway) smokiness that permeates the entire brew. A salty finish rounds…

Holsten Alcohol Free

Beer #1473 is a lager brewed by Holsten-Brauerei in Hamburg, Germany. A German lager (I think) that is 0.0% abv, they claim. It’s slightly sweet and malty, and it tastes like candy water. Not impressed in the slightest, but having…

Aventinus

Beer #1470 is a wheat ale brewed by Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Son in Kelheim, Germany. A very rich sweet ale (supposedly a wheat beer but it tastes nothing like one to me). Lots of plum upfront and a nice…
