Beer Alert & Directory IV


#788

weird weird beer…


#789

Jever. I thought this was a decent pils. Might belong in the is this famous thread.


#790

Looks like coconut water to me…


#791

Wut? You found Jever in Taiwan? Where?


#792

I found it too. Don’t remember if I liked it or not. Is it actually famous?


#793

carrefour hualien has it


#794

Pretty sure no bubbles=no beer
Seriously, you might have been cheated, try for a refund

If all else fails, consider fire bombing the seller


#795

by bojack’s reaction I’d say it might be


#796

I’ve had it in the States, and it was better than ok. Meaning it might be fantastic here.

I’ll leave ranking to the Germans, though.


#797

I think my sample might have been a little flat, lacking bubbles. It was one of the times where I didn’t check the date and after I realized it was a bit old. i’ll buy another. The flavor was good though.


#798

That actually isnt beer, its a ‘urotherapy’ product


#799

Yeah, I’ve had plenty of that over in Germany. Usually with a kebab. Quite like it.


#800

Cool. Is it something considered “good” or perhaps “cheap”?


#801

That explains many things.


#802

Ice in beer??? So Taiwanese!


#803

beer with ice=ok maybe
glenmorangie lasanta 12 with ice=don’t do it again
milk with ice=have you tried it? it’s good.


#804

It’s quite a while since I’ve had it, I’ve only been to Germany twice in the last few years, but my recollection is that it was one of the cheaper beers. I first remember drinking it as a 16 year old on holiday from the UK with some friends, so I’m guessing I would have gone with the cheaper things available :stuck_out_tongue:

That said, a cheaper German beer is still preferable to many other things available.


#805

You saw the Glenmorangie with ice? I tried to be sophisticated and add only a few drops of water to my scotch, but it just didn’t work for me. If it’s any consolation, I pour in only a little at a time, I use a good scotch glass, and I drink quickly before things get too watered down.

Haven’t tried the milk with ice. It sounds so wrong.


#806

One of the nice things about drinking shit-cheap whikkey is that you can ice it down when the weather hets up (i.e. now) without feeling guilty.
And yeah, I been icing my milk for years

ETA: Even so, I’m only pouring out the hootch and icing it about an ounce and a half at a time. I’m not an animal. OK, I’m an animal, but I’m not, like Australian or anything…


#807

Ha, I was kidding about the whisky. In fact last night I used 12yr Grouse to make a New York Sour. Talk about destroying a decent scotch.

I haven’t poured beer over ice, but will try it.
