What do I think about drinking Russian beer? I suppose, having lived in Poland on the Baltic, I really should accept that whatever could have been done likely was done some time ago. Whatever is in the water, however, the rest of it is pretty tasty. A thick cream head resolves to a rim of beige surrounds a thin froth over deep mocha ale. Rich dark chocolate and date with nuts tempered by a slight if rough twig hopping with a cream finish.
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."
