Brewery: Ursus Breweries Style: Lager ABV: 5.0% Country number: 38 Bought at: Somewhere in Larnaca, Cyprus Date:30/08/2016 My Untappd rating:
After serving you a new country last week I’m back to revisits this week. This revisit takes us back to a family vacation in Larnaca back in 2016. Larnaca actually surprised me with plenty of bars that had a decent beer selection. This beer was not enjoyed at a bar though but bought at a local supermarket and enjoyed at the hotel.
The beer is golden in colour with a normal amount of carbonation. The taste is very malty and sweet. Slight bitterness in the end before a short and sweet aftertaste.
Brewery: South Pacific Brewery Style: Lager ABV: 4.5% Country number: 117 Bought at: Gateway Hotel in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Thanks to Patrick Storesund! Date: 25/01/2019 My Untappd rating:
New beer two weeks in a row! I have earlier talked about the friend that was in Västerås at the same time as me who later moved to Papua New Guinea and then supplied me with beer from Samoa and Albania. What I haven’t told is that he wasn’t the only one who where in Västerås at the same time that ended up in Papua New Guinea flying for the same airline. As I was already getting last weeks beer towards the end of last year I figured out that it could be a nice idea to ask if this second person working on the other side of the world was planning to go home for Christmas, and the answer was yes. He also answered yes when I asked if he could bring a local beer with him on the long journey home. Huge thanks to Patrick!
The beer is clear golden in colour with a massive foam top when poured into the glass. It taste malty and kind of cheap with a nice floral finish. The aftertaste is sweet and grainy. A very typical lager that probably taste a lot better when enjoyed in Papua New Guinea compared to chilly Norway.
Brewery: Sociedade Cabo Verdiana de Cerveja e Refrigerantes Style: Lager ABV: 5.6% Country number: 116 Bought at: Praia Shopping in Praia, Cape Verde. Thank you very much Stian Skovro! Date: 18/01/2019 My Untappd rating:
When publishing the last revisit last year I promised you some new beers in the new year. The fact is that this beer and another one was already on the way when posting the last entry. As I have mentioned earlier in some posts I have friends flying aircrafts all over the world, and late last year one of them happened to do some flying out of the Cape Verde islands. I of course asked if he would be so kind to bring a beer with him if he could. It was therefor a pleasant sight to come home to this beer after a couple of weeks at work. Once again thank you Stian!
The beer is golden in colour with a little white foam on top. It tastes bitter and grainy from the malts. A very normal lager without anything special to it. Sweet and citrusy ending that lingers for a little while.
Brewery: Hartwall Style: Lager ABV: 5.2% Country number: 30 Bought at: Systembolaget in Västerås, Sweden Date:10/12/2015 My Untappd rating:
After finally finding beer from a new country last week I’m back to reviewing one of the 43 beers I had before start of this blog in 2017. One thing you might notice is that the country number on the last reviews is jumping a little from entry to entry. The reason for this is that I have not been able to find some of the beers that I had before starting in 2017. So I will leave the ones I haven’t been able to find and hopefully review them at a later stage. No over to todays review! In the blogentry for Sweden I mentioned that I travelled to Västerås for some flying. That stay lasted for two weeks and since I was joined by the same beerenthusiast who supplied me with the beer from Samoa and Albania I was able to tick of some countries while we were there.
The beer is golden in colour with very little carbonation. It doesn’t taste too much but has a malty and a sweet middle. The finish is bitter but ends rather quickly.
In December 2015 I travelled to Västerås in Sweden to do the flying portion of my European pilot licence. As I was starting there on a Monday my brother and I travelled to Stockholm on the Friday before to explore the Swedish capital. I had this standard Swedish lager when we stopped for something to eat on one of these days.
The beer is yellow in colour with a little hazyness to it. It has a heavy amount of foam to it even when poured slowly. It tastes kinda flat but still brings a solid malty kick. Citrusy notes towards the end.
Brewery: Unión de Cervecerías Peruanas Backus y Johnston Style: Lager ABV: 4.8% Country number: 26 Bought at: Giraffe at Heathrow Airport in London, England Date:14/09/2015 My Untappd rating:
In September 2015 I travelled to Mallorca together with the family to celebrate my fathers 60th birthday. When flying to Mallorca I had a short stop at Heathrow Airport in London. While ordering something to eat at Giraffe I noticed this exotic beer from Peru and decided that my meal would be even better with a South American lager complimenting it.
The beer is dark golden in colour with a finger wide foam top. It tastes crisp and malty with a small bitter hint. It finishes off with a dry malty taste.
Brewery: Litra Brewing Company (Collaboration with armando_ochoa) Style: Sour ABV: 8.0% Country number: 115 Bought at: Csak a Jó Sör in Budapest, Hungary Date:28/11/2018 My Untappd rating:
This week I’m enjoying a relaxing vacation in Budapest, Hungary. As usually I did some beer research before coming here and that research led me to the shop Csak a Jó Sör which had four different beers from the Moldavian brewery Litra Brewing Company. All these beers are brewed in collaboration with the Hungarian brewery armando_otchoa which explains why I could get them here in Budapest.
The beer is hazy dark red with no foam at all. It smells like the red wine barrells it has been stored on for 6 months. The taste is sour and fruity with lots of cherry. The finish is slightly short and on the boozy side. Might be a good beer if you like kriek style beers, but not for me.
Brewery: Heiniken Asia Pacific Style: Lager ABV: 5% Country number: 24 Bought at: Meny Bogstadveien in Oslo, Norway Date: 17/01/2015 My Untappd rating:
Not much to say about this weeks revisit as it is the same story as last weeks beer from Greece. Bought at the same store and enjoyed the same place with the same good company of friends as last weeks entry.
The beer is clear golden in colour with a minimal amount of white foam on top. It tastes sweet and malty with a hint of citrus. The end is rather short and malty.
Brewery: Olympic Brewery Style: Lager ABV: 5% Country number: 23 Bought at: Meny Bogstadveien in Oslo, Norway Date: 17/01/2015 My Untappd rating:
Still no new beers in the horizon which means I will continue to do these revisits until something new pops up. This week it’s another beer enjoyed in Oslo but this time bought at a nearby Meny and enjoyed at the apartment that we rented for the month.
The beer is golden in colour with a nice amount of carbonation. It smells malty and tastes just as it smells. Nice crisp maltyness that finishes on a sweet note. A bit to bland to reach a higher score for me.
