A Good Beer Blog


Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.

Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."

Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."

Kasteel Brown added.

Now Rodenbach Grand Cru.

Finally, that Leffe Brown.

After my first sip of Kasteel I was puzzled. The second confirmed the first and the third confirmed that yes, this beer was undrinkable for me. Perhaps it was a bad bottle but it ended up going down the drain after two other people in the room sipped it and confirmed that yes, it tasted like cheap sour wine gone bad.

It was also rather flat. I like Unibroue's strong beers but this one just wasn't for me. I doubt it'll get a second try.

You better watch out for the Rodenbach then as it really does taste like vinegar - if you had written that about Rodenbach I would not be surprised at all. I think you should give it another try.
