Title: Beer
Post by: CTG on May 30, 2005, 05:44:16 PM
Summer arrived, temperature is impossible high. It's so good to have a cold beer to refresh yourself. Inspired by Usrin's message in Football fanats topic about Borsodi Beer I take a question: which is your favorite beer? I also expect some pictures about them. Mine is Carlsberg, but Dreher Classic is also very delicious.

I have two favourites among Hungarian beers: Soproni and Borosty?n. Soproni is cheaper and it refreshes me better in summer, because Borosty?n is a "semi-dark" beer. (But Borosty?n also deserves the bonus points of Akoss, because it's made by the Borsodi Beer Factory!) Slovak beers are in another (better) category. :)

Post by: Usrin on May 30, 2005, 07:46:15 PM
It's delicious, but more expensive than my Hungarian favourites, so I don't use to buy it in Hungary. And the REALLY good Slovak beers (Saris and Tatran) are sold only in Slovakia...

Yesterday I tasted 4 new beers.

Pilsner Urquell
G?sser
Amstel
Steffl

(and we also drank Dreher and Tuborg.)

And in Denmark, in July, some more new beers was tasted. :)

Pilsner Urquell and Amstel were good, Steffl was average, G?sser was surprisingly weak.

Post by: Usrin on August 15, 2005, 08:32:50 PM
I haven't drunk much beer in the Netherlands, although I wanted to. But it was VERY expensive: 2 dl costed about 1.70 EUR, and at most places there were NO bigger glasses... Bottled beers available in shops were also small (3 dl) and expensive (at least 1 EUR). At least beer was free at the opening & closing ceremonies of the conference I took part in (but was served in those small glasses); and once I succeed to find normal-sized (5 dl) canned Heineken in a shop (six for 4.30 EUR)...

Strange, but true: Heineken is almost the only Dutch beer there, but there are some very good Belgian ones. For example, "De Koninck" is delicious: it's a "half-brown" beer like Borosty?n, one of my Hungarian favourites (but better than it).

About G?sser: We've drunk a lot of it in Austria during our field trip, and I think it was really good. (And it's worth to mention another good Austrian beer: Puntigamer?. :))

CTG, I haven't tried Dreher Bak yet, but I surely will. :) (I've seen some Belgian beers containing 8.5% of alcohol, but these were VERY, VERY expensive...)

Usrin: I have heard about Slovakian beers with 10-12 vol% alcohol. Do you have any info about them? I want to try!!!  :)
Title: Beer
Post by: Usrin on August 30, 2005, 01:59:51 PM
CTG, I'll disappoint you, but you are wrong... Maybe you think that because there is a number between 8 and 13% written on EVERY Slovak beers. It's worth to know that this doesn't mean the alcohol content, but the quality of the beer. I don't know exactly how do they count it, but most brands has at least three types: for example 8%, 10% and 12%. The last means the best (and most expensive) one. OK, this one contains the most alcohol, but that means a "normal" value, around 5% V/V. (Alcohol content is also written on the bottles, but with much smaller numbers.)

No, there are rules for beer production - special fermentation, etc. They did a lot longer fermentation with a bit different conditions, that's all I think. And I also think it can be delicious: the article said it has a very full taste, somewhere between hard drinks and beers.

CTG, you didn't tell me anything new in ZakStunts news! I tasted S?rk?ny (=Dragon) Beer last week; I've bought one bottle for 74(!) HUF (=0,30 EUR) in SPAR(R) - and yes, it was OK. It's made by Sopron Beer Factory, producer of my favourite "cheap" beer, Soproni (=former Soproni ?szok; 99-109 HUF), and its quality is almost on the level of Borsodi. (But I'm afraid S?rk?ny Beer don't cause erection...)

Well, let's rate some beers coming to my mind!

Kozel (CZE) 9.5
Tatran (SVK) 9.5
?ari? (SVK) 9
Topvar (SVK) 9
Borosty?n (HUN) 9
De Koninck (BEL) 9
Soproni (HUN) 8.5 (much more cheaper than the others with 8.5 pts!)
Dreher Classic (HUN) 8.5
Zlat? Ba?ant (SVK) 8.5
Stella Artois (BEL) 8.5
Amstel (NED) 8
Tuborg (DEN) 8
Heineken (NED) 7.5
Gold Fassl (AUT) 7.5
Sm?dn? Mn?ch (SVK) 7.5
Pilsner Urquell (CZE) 7.5
Borsodi? Bivaly (HUN) 7
G?sser (AUT) 7
Ottakringer (AUT) 7
Szalon (HUN) 6.5
Gemer (SVK) 6.5
Puntigamer (AUT) 6.5
Borsodi? (HUN) 6
Kaiser (AUT) 5.5
S?rk?ny (HUN) 5
Innstadt (HUN) 5
Arany ?szok (HUN) 3.5
Adambrau (GER) 3
K?b?nyai (HUN) 2.5
N?dor (HUN) 2
Mammuth (GER) 1.5
Tesco Economy (SVK) 1

Let's fill my list created in the spring with some newly tasted beers, and let's rerate some beers! Remember, 10 pts is the average wine!

Zlaty Bazant 8.5
Kielerbrau 8.5
Dreher Classic 8
Borsodi Bivaly 7.5 (+1.5 erection induction, +1 home beer=10)
Tuborg 7.5
Harboe Pilsner 7
Dithmarscher 7
Pilsner Urquell 7
Borsodi 7 (+1.5 erection induction, +1 home beer=9.5)
Amstel 6.5
Beck's 6.5
Bjoerne Bryg 6.5
Staropramen cerny 6
Steffl 6
Steiger 5.5
Borosty?n 5.5 (+1 home beer=6.5)
Arany ?szok 4.5
G?sser 3.5

You can see, I'm not a big beer drinker, I haven't tasted too much of them.

Still waiting for it! :)
Important note to my ratings: as I wrote earlier, Czech and Slovak brands has some different versions. My ratings concern the best ("12%") version. I have to tell this because I've just seen Kozel beer in SPAR, but because of its low price (109 HUF) and low alcohol content (4,0%) that must be equivalent with the weakest ("8%" or "9%") version, and I'm sure that it wouldn't deserve 9.5 pts!

Yes, I do: go to Slovakia! I'm afraid you would have some trouble with finding this miraculous country, so don't forget the following: if you cross the bridge from Kom?rom or Esztergom, you get into Slovakia. There you can find many excellent "new" brands in any shop. :)
Title: Beer
Post by: Usrin on October 05, 2005, 10:33:49 PM
The bridge from V?mosszabadi (near to B?csa) also leads you to Slovakia, but there's no major town on the border, therefore the selection of beers is less wide.

Weekend is coming (for me, it's here)... so: CTG, don't forget to rate the beers you've already tasted! I'm also waiting ratings from other pipsqueaks, who know some Hungarian beers (participants of the World Stunts Meeting 2004 or new Hungarian pipsqueaks) or just want to add some brands from other countries to the list! (Well, I think my rankings will contain only those beers which will be rated by more than 50% of voters.)

Current rankings are available here: http://bolyai.elte.hu/~usrin/stuntsbeer.xls. I'm going to taste some new beers, and re-taste some others that I can't remember of enough clearly. :) And I recommend to CTG to taste Czech and Slovak beers in their homeland: for example I'm sure that the Kozel exported to Hungary is not the same as Kozel 12% available in Slovakia. (In general, beers are cheaper in Slovakia, but you can't get Kozel 12% for 109 HUF=17 SKK=0,43 EUR there...)

Current "podium" is the following:
1. Stella Artois 8,75
2. Dreher Classic 8,67
3. Zlat? Ba?ant 8,50

That means you really don't like Topvar (I don't know why), but you should find and taste the better Kozel. (Where? You can find the answer in my previous posts. :))

Topvar: The first centiliters were fair enough but after that I started to feel a strange backtaste and it was quite disgusting.

Current: I'm drinking Zlaty Bazant and after that I'll check Pilsner Urquell again. I wonder how my taste changed since May when I tried it.

As Scholarship of the Republic arrived to my account, I decided to taste some more expensive beers (compared to those I use to drink). My ratings will appear in the chart in the next few weeks... Today I started with Carlsberg, CTG's favourite. Its quality was perfect, but I could feel a light sourish tinge, which was a bit strange for me... That's why I gave it "only" 8 pts, but it was enough for it for the first place in overall rankings.

I don't know who spared money (main sources of it were also scholarships, I would bet...) for buying a notebook - which is an EXTREMELY eager-beaver (and bourgeois) thing, as it sucks for playing Stunts, but is very good for Word, PowerPoint and other typical eager-beaver applications. :P I would rather taste new beers...


1, It wasn't that expensive and my parents gave me some money to buy it.
2, I needed notebook because the fuckin' thermoanalitics group didn't have any free computers for me at the laboratory that's why I had to bring my own one (imagine if I carry a complet PC configuration every day to the university... :D).
3, I played Stunts on my notebook in the last few months. My 51.65 was made on that notebook (easily). It runs Stunts quite good.

Scholarship of the state is an eager-beaver thing (high average, TDK, OTDK, articles in scientific magazines, dick sucking at the rector/minister of education, etc.). My spared money came from my school leaving ceremony's income (~50000 HUF), from an Austrian uncle (100 Euro) and it was in a bank for some years. My average sucks so I don't get too much money from the university.

About beer: this is the only thing I really spend money on. My next action will be a visit in P?rk?ny (ha-ha yes, you know it as Sturovo) and I'll try some quality beers (max 1.00 Euro/bottle).

It wasn't that expensive (...)

I've waited for this typical bourgeois answer. :P How many bottles of beer could you buy for the price of it, or how many Stunts meetings could you go to for this money... but "it wasn't expensive". :P

Quote from: "CTG"
My average sucks (...)

Yes, for an eager-beaver like you it sucks, but I'm sure that many of your classmates envy you for it. (Otherwise you wouldn't plan applying for PhD seriously...)

OK, I know that Stunts runs well on notebooks, but I think their small keyboards are not comfortable for driving. (Well, I've never tried that, but I can imagine how embarrassing it would be for me...)

Get back to the topic! Your idea (going to Sturovo for beers) is very good: if you won't buy "8%" or "9%" beers, you surely won't be disappointed. These percentages shows the quality very dependably. So don't be afraid of bad quality if you find a "12%" beer for extremely low price (0,30-0,35 EUR)! And I think you won't find any beers above 1.00 EUR in an average shop in Slovakia...

Another interesting thing about beers: on the label of the fuckin' Innstadt Beer I saw that it contains 4,8% alcohol, ?0,5%. I think the Hungarian regulation says that the average alcohol content should be written on the label, with ?0,5% as margin of error. In Slovakia the mimimal value is written on the labels - so you could read "min. 4,3%" on Innstadt Beer, if it would be possible to find such a shitty beer there. So don't be surprised if you read "min. 4,1%" as alcohol content - it means the same as "4,6%" on Borsodi.

It was 125000 HUF and I had no PC before that. I live from the money I get for my average, I usually don't use my parents money. It was time for them to lend some...

My overall average is 3.90 (last semester 4.18 ) - it's a middle class one here because the worst 70% left the original plan and has less credits and the upper 30% is strong. That's really crap, PhD is quite irrealistic (I'll try it, what can I lose? If I can pass it then you'll get 6 beers from the 150-200 HUF cathegory). Official promise, everybody can see it.

Slovakia: This Friday (or the next) seems to be ideal for me...  :)

It looks like this way on the Merida site:

-Budapest (2 months of being together)
-Szombathely (first I guess they won't undertake the relationship)

Akoss Poo travelled to a girl to
-Miskolc (4 times, no relationship)
-Szentes (one weekend)
-Veszpr?m (4 months of being together+1 meeting last year)
-M?rk? (a village very close to Veszpr?m, for a weekend, to party, it was Laura's friend girl)

And I almost travelled to Nagykanizsa once for a girl... IMO she would have been the best choice - she was almost in love with me...

Well you should visit Croatia next year, we have lots of beer, sea coast and naked girls:) Good thing is, you can see all three of them at once! And Croatia is not far away from Budapest. I've never been to Budapest, but I was on Balaton! Nice! And so many Germans, everybody speaks German!

About Lake Balaton: I've always found the crowd of foreign (mostly German) tourists a bit annoying there (agreeing with Prosectura, a Hungarian punk band :D), but in the last few years Balaton became less popular. It's bad news for people who live on tourism there, but I think it can be a much more enjoyable place without this crowd...

Yes, I would also like to sink in the unexplored world of Croatian beers. By the way, do you know Hungarian beers, Mislav? :D There are some really good ones! :D Yes, Zagreb is not too far away from Budapest, but that means Budapest is not too far away from Zagreb! :D If you understand what I wanted to say with this! :D
I'm just whispering to your ears: next meeting will take place in Hungary! :) And everybody from here is welcomed I guess! :)

About Croatian beach: I heard that it is very expensive! And the naked girls don't make it more attractive: bitches can be found everywhere. Girls are bitches without exception who are ready to appear naked on the beach. And only one part of my body is interested in them: that is called my dick. But my dick doesn't work all the time, maybe only a few times a week, and since my other body parts (heart, eyes, brain etc.) work all the time, I would rather prefer normal girls.

The best places to swim and recreation are smaller lakes, with some people visiting them. If the place is not so popular, bitches will avoid going there. In a crowded place, it's impossible to meet new people. If there's nobody, it's again the same. If there's some people, maybe we can get acquainted with them - and that's good. And small lakes are usually visited by normal people. You can put up your tents here, you can grill your bacon, cook a tasty gulasch, drink red wine, sing loud at night from it, play cards, watch the stars, feel that you are really yourself... oh I'm going to stop speaking about it, because it's almost winter, and it's impossible to have such a great party now...

B?FF! :D

Hahaha, free beer then, if you work in a pub Zak.....that's good! And Akoss, yes, I understand you, but I didn't say naked bitches, just naked girls, I meant in a bikini... And Croatia became more expensive unfortunately in the last years, maybe because it's getting more and more popular as destination since the war ended. National Geographic just voted Croatia as Nr.1 destination in the world for the season 2006!! For such a small country it's very good comercial, so we are very proud:) But there are still many lonely places on the coast, Croatia has over 1000 islands, and only 66 are with population. Sorry if I sound commercial, I have to present my small country, there are still many people who don't even know where or what is Croatia, and that Yugoslavia is history:) Next Stunts meeting in Budapest...Hmmm, sounds good to me, let's see... And I heard about some Hungarian beers, but never tried some. Can you send me some over;) I have to go to sleep now...bye!

Between Hungarian beers, Dreher is the best in my opinion, and you can get it almost everywhere in Hungary. Borsodi is the best cheap beer (the lowest cost quality beer - or the highest cost non-quality beer, it's the matter of opinion. It is produced approximately 50 kms from my hometown! :) If you come to Hungary next summer to the stunts meeting, you will definitely taste both of them! :) Yes, Hungary is very famous for their salami, Bonzai Joe and JTK likes it very very much. :D It is one of our best trademarks! :) Don't forget to taste gulasch, p?linka either! And of course it will be remembered also when you taste Zak's delicious chilli beans! ;)

Girls with bikini are okay (depending on bikini), but of course I prefer conventional swimsuit to bikinis.

If I see such a girl, I'm sure that she is a Helen - she doesn't even try to look nice and really feminine, she knows that she isn't aesthetic in that way, and only tries to act on men's instincts (and even not on our sense of beauty) with showing almost everything on her...

Mislav I was in Croatia (Rovinj) last summer, and liked it very much though it was extremely crowded. OK I know it's one of the most crowded areas, but I couldnt help my mother's choice :)
There are many people, thats not such a big problem, prices are now European - well thats how life goes.  But the sea is unforgettable, as I dont like swimming too much, but snorkeling is a great adventure :)
What I couldnt bear was the heat. I have nordish blood in my veins, and I was suffering there in late july :)
What I'd like to visit in detail was the area covered with mountains. It looked much more beautiful to me, and just perfect for a bike tour.
One of my favourite countries is Slovenia, so maybe I'll organize a Croatia-Slovenia bike trip with my girlfriend some year later when we'll be more experienced in longer tours :)

CTG, you are contradicting your words you said yesterday to me! This is disgusting!  :smt078
You said pina is far the most important on a girl, and that you are not really interested in tits (bikini on a girl is for boasting about tits), there are some things on her which are more exciting on them. And now you are saying it shows the main parts of girls. It doesn't show you the pina, and doesn't show more anything really exciting than tits - the body part which is not really important and exciting for you. You only like bitchish and fashionable things on a girl (for example varnished nails).

Usrin, I disagree with you: in your opinion, why is bikini only for attractive (it would mean thin or average build this time) girls? They have a lot of concern with their weight and build, they are not proud of it, they only want the men to concentrate on the favourable body parts on them, and not on the ugly parts. This is more understandable than when a nice girl does it. Nice girls wouldn't need showing their tits, they are nice in clothes or conventional swimsuit as well. They are only doing this
1.) by fashion :smt078
2.) because they are bitches :smt078
1+2.) because it's fashion to be a Helen! :smt078 :smt078 :smt078

It is like make-up: ugly girls trying to look nice, nice girls do it by fashion and because most of them are bitches. And it only marrs their face...

Akoss Poo: I think bikini is not only about tits. You can know that I don't like girls with huge tits: even if most guys go crazy on them, for me that's no more than a way of fatness. But bikini can look very nice even on girls with bust size below 90 cms, if they've good-shaped body. Well, their shape would be also visible through a conventional swimsuit, but if I want to admire a girl's shape (because it's a part of her beauty and feminineness, and not only a thing that gives me erection, like Borsodi Beer - wheee, that's not an offtopic post! :P), seeing her body directly is much more natural than seeing a swimsuit clinging on it... And as I can imagine, bikini is much more comfortable for a girl. (Would you like to wear something fully covering your body while swimming, sunning, etc.? And don't you think you would say the same if you'd been born as a girl?)

Maybe yes, it is not about tits - but for girls, it is, and they wear it just to show their tits. A great evidence to it is that between shy girls, the percentage of wearing the conventional swimsuit is much much higher than between the non-shy ones, even if they have a beautiful body (being shy is not in connection with good body shapes). So we have to think with the girls' (small) brain: let's show our tits, wear a bikini - boys will like us because of it.
About fully covering your body: Ian Thorpe is swimming in a swimsuit which absolutely covering his body (inc. his legs, arms), only his face look out of it. And still he likes to swim in it, and he is a great champion. A conventional swimsuit is only covering one's body, but not her legs or arms. And if a body part is covered with a swimsuit, it's still not insulated from getting wet, so the girls can still enjoy being in the water.
So, bikini can be considered as a more practical swimsuit (I disagree with it, moreover, bikini is not a swimsuit, it is for those bitches who like lying in the sun), but girls are wearing it to boast about their body.

The last thing: you can admire a girl's beautiful body if you pick her up. Normal girls show their body only in this case. Otherwise, you can only keep your eyes peeled - the fate of losers... (like me, except for Laura)

Those stupid girls can think what they want - I'm absolutely not interested at they as long as there are some exceptions. Fortunately there are. :)
And well, a swimsuit covering your body can be good in the water, especially if you want to swim fast - but when you come out, you can't dry so easily. And when finally you're dry, I think it's not too good to wear anything clinging tightly on your body in sunshine and 40 degrees...

In 40 degrees, other people are wearing shorts, skirts, T-shirts, training shoes, socks and things like these. Those are 'lucky' who are on the beach. Related to them, it's very comfortable to wear conventional swimsuits. And an other thing: if you are sizzling in the sun on the beach, you should rather go back to the water. After all, you came to swim and have a bath, and not to show off your body (tits etc.).

It's about 180km, but I never made that adventure happen, next spring I guess. I was never in Rovinj but in Pore? few days ago, it's near Rovinj. Ok, now I have to say something BEERFUL, so that CTG can't say that this was no beer topi:-)

I'd like to citate one of the most popular beer drinkers, Homer Simpson:

"Mmm.............beeeeeeerrrrr............"

I've found that low alcohol level dark Krusovice quite weak, especially compared to the normal version (Krusovice Imperial): 5/10. Today, I tasted Krombacher Pils - has anybody tried it? (At least somebody from Germany?) It was quite expensive (about 250 HUF, I don't remember exactly), but not as good as the best Hungarian brands: it got 8/10 from me.

Of course I already tried it - I guess it's the most common beer here. But I'm not a real beer lover, I usually only drink it when I'm already drunk of something else! :-D
So I must regret to say that I won't join your beer rating. But as far as I can judge, Krombacher is a better one. :)

Budweiser (Budvar, original CZE, not the weak American copy) 9/10. Tasteful czech beer, one of the bests I have ever tried. S?rk?ny retro: it's crappier than I thought. Let's devaluate it a bit: 4/10.

Litovel, as far as I know.

Have you ever seen a beer cheaper than 50 HUF? I've discovered today that Platina ?szok (containing 4,5 V/V% of alcohol) is sold for 49 HUF in Auchan! Well, I'm a bit worried about it, because it is brewed by Ilzer Beer Factory (maker of Innstadt Beer)... but I'll taste it in the evening!
Title: Beer
Post by: Usrin on December 05, 2005, 05:01:26 PM
Khm... I've just noticed on the bottle that it was best before 10. 11. 2005! I think that's why they've reduced its price (earlier it was 85 HUF)... But who cares? (I think it haven't became worse, there is a lot of reserve in these time intervals...)

Ugh! That was hardly better than Innstadt Beer, I felt the same horrible tinge, although not so strongly... It doesn't deserve more than 2,5/10 (I modified the result of Innstadt to 2/10, because it was a bit worse). But at least it was the cheapest beer of my life!

Stella Artois has been pushed off the podium by Akoss Poo. New TOP 3 is the following:

Oops! Why and when will you go to Copenhagen?

To be exact, I will go to Koda?, but I was afraid that some people couldn't understand it in this way. :D Why will I go there? To taste Danish beers and add my ratings to the scoreboard! Well, more seriously: because in a sale I could buy a round-trip plane ticket to Malm? (linked with Copenhagen by a bridge) for 10000 HUF, including every taxes and other costs. (Well, I know that it will be quite expensive to stay there...) And when will I be there? Between 4-8 February 2006. But I think I will also visit Slovakia before that, at least for an afternoon, because there are many Slovak beers I haven't tasted yet!

(Akoss Poo: if you're curious, I'll write you more details in e-mail.)

I would also like to taste Slovak beers (and Becherovka, too). I guess I need to go to Slovakia soon. I will try to persuade my parents to do this - maybe for a good hiking in the mountains of Slovakia. What do you think, where can I find a cheap supermarket with a big range of Slovak beers the nearest to Kazincbarcika?

I'm afraid there are no major supermarkets in Tornal'a, but as you're a beginner in the amazing world of Slovak beers, the range of an average shop would also give you pleasure. :) But if you want a really wide selection, including many Czech brands, I recommend Roznava or Rimavsk?

No, no, no... :) It's a REAL change, a permanent one. Dreher Bak is my favorite now, it deserves 10/10. And my rule is that I have only one beer, the best with 10 points so Carlsberg must be a bit devaluated.

I will search for that book (jegyzet), there's a page about alcohol toxicology in it, and I will copy the data here. :)

More drinks in an hour: good idea. If you want to develop your little program even more, it would be fine to see a bigger variety of drinks. For example vermouth (16-17%), liqeur (20-30%), rum (60-80%), absinthe (70-80%). :D

I'm not on such a high level in Excel, this table wasn't created by me. I got it in e-mail from a friend, who also got it from somebody else... That's why I couldn't make serious modifications (for example, widening the variety of drinks) in it, I could just replace the name, quantity and alcohol content of them in the given 5 lines. You can also do that, but you can't have more than 5 kinds of drink during a party :).

K?b?nyai!!! HUGE surprise for me, I never thought it will be so good. I give 7/10!

I think you had to be very drunken! What did you drink before it??? :shock:
(Or should I try it again? I haven't drunk K?b?nyai for at least 2 years...)

Btw, I've tasted Szalon Barna. There is no problem with its taste, but I felt it a bit weak and watery compared to Dreher Bak --> it got only 6/10. (And that doesn't depend on alcohol content: for example, Staropramen Cerny can be a very tasteful dark beer with less than 5% alcohol in it.)

LOL, K?b?nyai was the first beer last night and I really felt it good (or a lot better than I expected). Maybe 7/10 is a bit too much, let me correct it to 6/10. I think it's about Borsodi's level.

Akoss Poo: sorry, I'm afraid I wouldn't remember correctly the beer ratings you made yesterday (I got too drunken...), so please post them here! (Beers: Ottakringer, Amstel Bock, Dreher Bak.) Amstel Bock was new also for me; it has similar, and slightly weaker taste than Dreher Bak, so I gave it 7,5 points.

Asahi was GOOD! I haven't recognized any major difference because of rice. It's simply delicious! Let's give 8.5/10. Contrast sample was Stella Artois, about the same quality.

Just a question: can you tell about the beer prices in SVK?
Title: Beer
Post by: Usrin on January 02, 2006, 10:09:42 PM
Here are the prices of the beers on my photo!

Bottles, from left to right:

Corgon, tmavy (=dark): 15,50 SKK (105 HUF)
Zlaty Bazant, tmavy: 19,90 SKK (135 HUF)
Gemer: 8,90 SKK (61 HUF)
Saris, tmavy: 17,90 SKK (121 HUF)
Smadny Mn?ch: 9,90 SKK (67 HUF)
Steiger: 12,90 SKK (88 HUF)
Steiger, tmavy: 14,90 SKK (101 HUF)

Cans, from left to right:

Corgon: 15,20 SKK (103 HUF)
Gambrinus (CZE): 18,50 SKK (126 HUF)
Kelt (CZE): 24,50 SKK (167 HUF)
Topvar 1: 20,50 SKK (139 HUF)
Topvar 2: 23,20 SKK (158 HUF)
Starobrno (CZE): 16,50 SKK (112 HUF)
Saris: 15,90 SKK (108 HUF)

Sorry, I don't know what is the difference between the two cans of Topvar, it will be discovered when I'll taste them. :) As I remember, Kelt was the most expensive "Czecho-Slovak" beer that I found; Gemer wasn't the cheapest, but I'm afraid the cheapest one (called Gazda, 7,x0 SKK) is equal to the good old Tesco Economy beer. (The factory and the alcohol content is the same...)

And if you want to do your shopping in Sturovo, I write you how to get to the best shop. When you go down the bridge on the Slovak side, you should turn to the left, and just follow the main road. After 1 km, you'll find a Lidl, but I don't recommend it, it's as shitty as in Hungary. 500 m further (on the same road, which is gently turning to the right on the edge of a housing estate) you'll find the big Terno Supermarket in front of you - it has the greatest selection in the town! (Well, that's not a place for advertisements, but...)

Tasting of Slovak beers has started.

CTG or anybody else: if you go to Slovakia, you won't miss anything if you won't buy Gemer beer. If you're curious of it, rather make a mixture of 76% Borsodi Beer and 24% water, you'll get similar result... Rating: 3/10. My old rating on it was much higher - as I remember I was very thirsty when I tried it for the first time at Spissk? Nov? Ves railway station, getting off my bike and waiting for a train...

Well, long time has passed by since I gave 8.5 to Zlaty Bazant (and Kielerbrau). At that time, I haven't tasted too much of the beers, and I wouldn't have thought that no beer deserved a higher rate from me, so the 'average wine' reference as 10 pts sounded good. Now I'm thinking about rerating all the beers - or rather expanding the scale, and giving 9.5 to Zlaty Bazant.

I came to decision while I was writing the previous sentences.

Sorry Usrin, I have to give you some extra work, here are the new rates of the beers (on the expanded scale):

Zlaty Bazant 9.5
Kielerbrau 9.5
Carlsberg 9.0
Dreher Classic 9.0
Heineken 8.5
Tuborg 8.0
Dreher Bak 8.0
Borsodi Bivaly 7.5
Staropramen 7.5
Pilsner Urquell 7.5
Stella Artois 7.5
Dithmarscher 7.0
Harboe Pilsner 7.0
Amstel Bock 7.0
Borsodi 7.0
Amstel 6.5
Holsten 6.5
Soproni 6.5
Bjorne Bryg 6.5
Beck's 6.5
L?wenbrau 6.5
Staropramen Cerny 6.5
Steffl 6.0
Kozel 6.0
Borosty?n 5.5
Ottakringer 5.5
Steiger 5.5
Arany ?szok 4.5

Corgon - 7/10
Saris, tmavy - 7,5/10; I think this dark beer has really characteristic taste, like Dreher Bak (with less alcohol), and CTG would like it very much!

New dark beers from Slovakia:

Steiger, tmavy - 6/10
Corgon, tmavy - 8,5/10. Well, I think CTG wouldn't like it so much, because it's a "light" one compared to Dreher Bak and others... but it has very good quality, I think it's the first dark beer that I would like to drink not only in winter. :)

Yesterday evening an airplane of the Slovak army crashed in Hungary, and 42 Slovaks died. (The 43rd has only minor injuries.) For me, this case is very suspicious. I can just hope that not some Hungarian terrorists did it... But if my suspicion is true, I can promise that our troops will invade Hungary. Don't worry: if you capitulate and don't try to fight against us, that will just mean you can buy better beers in Budapest, Miskovec or Debrec?n!

Yes, it surprised me too at the first time but then I recognized a little piece of paper somewhere around the entrance about these rules... I like Kaisers although it's not too cheap, maybe because that's the one I visit at home too for 15 years (name changed later but the supermarket is the same).

This price was surprisingly high, as for some reason I knew that it's a shitty cheap beer. But  I saw that it contains 4,5% alcohol, much more than the really crappy beers like Viking.

Well, it was not really Slovak: although Saris is a traditional Slovak brand (and sold only in Slovakia), it is brewed in Dreher Beer Factory, Budapest, as it's written on the can... Btw, it was very good: I don't have to modify my old rating (9/10) on it.

That's not surprising, Slovaks always know what's the best! :D And don't forget that Tall?ros is brewed in Kom?rom, very close to the Slovak border. :-) (I think it's quite popular in Kom?rom-Esztergom county, you can see its advertisement on many pubs there.)

Thanks for the ratings! I've only one question: Topvar had WHITE or YELLOW can or label? These are two different types with different ratings, I think the yellow is much better...

And the most important news: Kelt has took the lead with a huge gap, it has 9,25 points in average! Akoss, CTG: you MUST taste it! Current podium is the following:
1. Kelt 9,25
2. Carlsberg 8,88
3. Dreher Classic 8,75

Wow! Harboe Pilsner is very cheap and very good! The most serious mistake of it is the fact that it is sold in small (33 cl) bottles. But one bottle was only 1.95 DKK (66 HUF), so 0.5 l costs no more than 100 HUF! My rating is 9/10 on it (I hope not just because I hadn't drunk any beer for 5 days); with that, it has came up to 9th place. B?FF! Sorry... I wanted to say B?FF! :D

I'll taste another Danish beer tomorrow: Carlsberg Master's Brew was much more expensive, 33 cl of it was about 8 DKK, but it contains 10.5 V/V%(!) of alcohol!

Now I'm in Budapest again, I've brought the beers home... I'm sad about missing your place, but I was mainly in Sweden in the last few days (where buying and drinking normal beers is almost impossible...), in Denmark I visited only Copenhagen. I wanted to buy also Bjoerne Bryg there (that was the other Danish beer that Akoss has mentioned), but I couldn't find it...

Bj?rnebryg is only found in cheap supermarkets :-) I think particularly the one called "Netto". How did you like Masterbrew, the worst beer in the world? :-)

Forever Harboe Pilsner! Finally Usrin tasted it, too! Nice little beer, isn't it?

I discontinued drinking beer, because my belly has grown too big. I started to do sports, eat a bit less, and drink wine, to become fit till the departure of the cycling tour. :D

Hm, that's strange, I've searched for it in Netto (and in F?tex)... Masterbrew will be opened within an hour. I'm curious. :D Now I remember what you wrote about it in this topic earlier (31 Aug 2005) - but I can't imagine that it would be worse than some very cheap beers (Viking, etc.) sold in Hungary...

I survived Masterbrew, and I don't see how could you feel it so horrible. It's like an average beer (for example: S?rk?ny) with a bit strange, but light sweetish after-taste and extra alcohol. As a beer, it doesn't deserve more than 4,5/10, but drinking 3-4 bottles of it would be the nicest way I can imagine to get drunken. (Naturally, I found it much better than any wine, and the alcohol level is almost the same...)

Topvar Marina!!! What a surprise! Nothing with the white label Topvar's ugly backtaste. This is dark beer, but it was quite strange compared to Dreher Bak: it was bitter but I also felt the characteristic taste of quality dark beers. Something like a mixture of Pilsner Urquell and Leffe dark beer - carrying only their positive properties. I liked it very much: 9/10 pts.

In Slovakia, we have some Christmas beers, for example Topvar Vianocne (=Christmas) Pivo (=Beer)! I tasted it a few years ago, so I can't remember well how good was it... but I see it got 6,5/10 from CTG.

Steiger dark beer: fine, fine but... I felt this one is really too light for me. Almost perfect taste but no power. Like a Ferrari bodywork with Opel engine.  :? Well I really like the taste, but the weakness reduces the mark a bit. Overall: 7.5/10.

Okay, my unforgettable drunknesses:

10x0.05 l brandy (March 2005) - 180 ccm
9 bottles of various cheap beers, mainly S?rk?ny (October 2005) - about 175 ccm alcohol
0.6 l vermouth (~100 ccm)+ 0.1 l pear liquor (~25 ccm) + 0.2 l baker rum (~50 ccm)(January 2000)

none of them caused vomit.

Vomiting events:

1.3-1.4 l artificial wine (Koccint?s)(June 2001) - ~140 ccm
lot of various beers, 178 ccm alcohol (November or December 2005 - I don't remember exactly)
Title: Beer
Post by: BonzaiJoe on February 21, 2006, 04:35:43 PM
I can't calculate alcohol ccm, but my quite sick record on January 10 was something like this:

1 x Irish Coffee (1), 1 x double irish coffee (2), 7 x beer (7), 1 bottle of cherry wine (7), 4 x tequila shot (4), 4 x beer (4) = 25. But it happened over the course of 16 hours.

I usually don't drink this much! :-)

No vomiting, by the way. I have vomited from drinking 4 times:

May 2001 (1.5 bottles of wine)
December 2001 (0,60 l of Vodka + one beer (the beer killed me :D))
September 2002 (I don't have any memory about what I drank this day, it's a big blur... I only remember bringing a one-liter vodka bottle, and at one point just trying to drink as much as possible in one go. Bad idea.)
April 2003 (again, I don't remember, only that it was whisky that finished me off...)

I'm not such a hard drinker, I've never drunken more than 7-8 beers + 1-1,5 dl of hard alcohol during an evening. (I really don't like wine...) But I vomitted in a few cases when the drinks weren't of too good quality - mainly not in my drunkness, but next morning... (Akoss Poo, do you remember my story about Borsodi Beer from 2003 December? :D Well, it was draught Borsodi, and I don't know what did they add to it...)

Some new beers I've recently tasted:
Veltins - 8/10;
Hungarian-brewed Kozel - 6/10. It's a typical Hungarian middle-class beer, totally different from the Czech Kozel (12%) available in Slovakia, so it got a new row in my scoreboard.

I know that Usrin doesn't rank white beers but I must tell I just tried Oberdorfer Weissbier (bayern beer, 5.5 vol% alcohol). Even the bottle was unusual for me (csatos ?veg, how the hell can I translate it... :)). And the content: mmmmmmmmmmh... The best white beer I have ever tasted - what's more, the best beer in overall. (maybe 12/10 if we compare to the former favorites) It has the power but with the classic mild taste of quality white beers and with thick, tasteful foam. You must try it once!

An older experience with a special beer: somehow Maisel's Weisse combined the white and dark beers and it resulted Maisel's Weisse Dunkel. It's a nice remembrance without any major effect on me. The beer was fine and strong enough but it gave nothing extra feeling. I give 8/10 on it.

Yesterday I tasted Miller - it was crap, especially if considering its price. (Mark: 5/10.) Well, there's no problem with its quality, but it absolutely hasn't any taste... I had the feeling that I drank some kind of quality mineral water.

Finished all the three bottles:

Budweiser Super Strong (16%) - CZE, alcohol content: 7.2%

Worse than the normal version of Budweiser, but still a very good one. Mark: 8/10.
 
Hoegaarden Grand Cru - BEL, alcohol content: 8.5%

Simply the best, I won't explain just re-valuate the other beers. Mark: 10/10

Hoegaarden Le Fruit D?fendu - BEL, alcohol content: 8.5%

Strange (in the positive meaning) dark beer. Quality level is similar to Dreher Bak but the taste is very different. Mark: 9/10.

I'll correct other beer's marks later. Hoegaarden Grand Cru is another class...

biggest in volume of hectoliters, and second in revenues.

Do you guys know: Skol ? Brahma ? Boehmia ? Itaipava ? Bavaria ?  Nova Schin ? Antarticta ? Kaiser ?

I put in my preferences order. beer in can, because in bottle the order would be: Original; Boehmia; Brahma; Skol; Itaipava; Bavaria; Antarticta; Nova Schin; Kaiser.

all regular beers, because almost all in this list, also exist in premium kind.

just for the records: my favourite drink is caipirinha (pinga + lemon + sugar + ice; all in the correct amount and way to mix). :smt118
made of course with pinga (cacha?a, caninha, marvada, ?gua-que-passarinho-n?o-bebe, etc). because with vodka or saque (some 'sofisticated' people use these) its not the same stuff.

B?FF! I've tasted Radegast Beer. (I found it in the good old CBA in Veres P?ln? Street; it costed 129 HUF.) It's the best "weak" beer I've ever drunk, but we can't deny that 3,5 V/V% alcohol is not too much... Mark: 5,5/10.

Well... Yesterday I was surprised very much. I decided to buy a can of Pilsner Urquell, because I couldn't really remember its taste; when I had tasted it earlier, it was only a glass of it, with not too much carbon dioxide in it. And I tasted it again aaaand... mmm... It became my second favourite beer! Deserves 9.5 points!!! Its very strong and very characteristic taste puts it among my favourite (lager) beers.

Hey!!! Who has bought the whole stock of Hoegaarden beers in Smatch??? Perhaps CTG??? I went there today afternoon, and found a big empty part on the shelf of beers. All types of Hoegaarden has run out... Btw, I didn't want to leave with empty hands, so I bought two new beers: Abro (SWE) and Brauperle (FRA, 8,0 V/V%).
Title: Beer
Post by: Usrin on March 24, 2006, 07:36:01 PM
Hm... if I find any beer better than Abro, I'll re-think my former rankings. In the current one, Abro deserves 10/10. Quite characteristic, maybe not a good refresher in summer, but fortunately it isn't summer yet. Btw: CTG, have you discovered the extra feature of the bottle? As the label says, its bottom is a beer opener, and that seems to be true. I should test it immediately! :D

Title: Beer
Post by: vamologocomisso on March 30, 2006, 10:31:25 PM
Akoss, soon Brahma will arrive...

europeans and brazillians taste for beer is very different, because in europe you guys like red and green kind of beer (i forget the name of the ingredients, maybe ale or ginger, i dont know). beers like stella artois for example, is not apriciatted here.

Here, only the true yellow, light yellow beer make success. (barley, germen of wheat, lupulo, and mineral water).
The fermentation is very different too.

and we have to remember other details like, here almost the entire year is hot, so the beer must be a little more light and refresh.
I, myself can drink any beer, if its very cold almost frozen.

bock type beers even in the winter its not very tastefull(in my city, the coldest days of the winter its like 16?C).

I also tasted Bohemia Gold a few weeks ago, but I forgot to add it to the scoreboard. I gave it 6,5/10. New beer of today was Brauperle Super Strong. Nice, without the strong alcoholic flavour that I felt in Master Brew (10,5 V/V%), but with some weak, but strange medicine-like tinge in it. Rate: 5/10.

I've just realized that CTG' "Budvar" and CTG's "Czech Budweiser" must be the same. Counting the average of their marks, it took the lead with 9,25 pts (in tie with Kelt). Akoss Poo will taste it tomorrow. :D

Sorry, CTG - Leffe Blonde is too characteristic for me. And another thing: while tasting it, I was thinking about when had I felt the same strange backtaste. The solution: when I drank Master Brew! I think these two beers are very similar, although Leffe contains less alcohol (6.6 V/V%), so it doesn't have that strong alcoholic taste. But I can't give it a mark better than 4.5/10.

Conclusion 1: Bonzai Joe, don't try Leffe Blonde!

New beer on the list: Jezek (CZE) 7.0. My friend told me that there are a shop of Czech and Slovakian beers in Kazincbarcika, they bought that there. (Borovicka is also sold there, I tasted that at my friend's, too.) It was relatively cheap (around 120 HUF he guessed). But really don't know what kind of Jezek it was. There are some kind of it.

Soproni 1895 is really good! Despite of its quite high alcohol content (5,3 V/V%), it's a "summer refresher type" beer - probably that's why CTG doesn't like it. But I realized that my former ranking on the original Soproni was a bit unrealistic. It's my personal favourite, it's the beer that I drink most frequently (for example, at home we always buy Soproni), but not better than 7,5/10. Btw, Soproni 1895 (a quality beer) really deserves 8,5/10. B?FF!!!

How deep was this topic on the list... Everybody has given up beer drinking? :shock:

As you can know, I generally hate wheat beers" - but today I tasted Hoegaarden White Beer, which was unambigously better than Edelweiss and others that I had known before. But it only means that I would give it 3.5/10, therefore I don't add it to the list. (As I told before, Edelweiss et al. would be somewhere around 1/10 for me...)

Well, In my spare time I actually am a crowncapcollector, which means I collect bottlecaps from all over the world. But I do not just collect thousands of caps looking similar, I only collect different caps, and I have 1.287 bottlecaps right now, and not a single one looking like the other.
I have bottlecaps from 51 countries and more than 500 breweries through the world and I have tasted about 1/4 of my collection, which is very much, but at least I don't THINK that I am an alcoholic! :-D
I am just fascinated with beers and I love to taste the new goods in the store, when a new liquid has arrived. Yes, I have tasted a lot of different beers and even though I really like beers from some different top-breweries, like Carlsberg, Heineken and some of the others you already have mentioned, I have to say that my choice of the best beer in the world is going to one of the oldest breweries in world, Urquell in the Czech Republic. Their main-beer is fantastic, the one who doesn't have tasted this beer should go to the nearest shop and buy it. 8)

Wheat beer, I knew that. 8)  

It is because I only know Ilzer's Kristall Weissbier, which I have in my collection of bottlecaps, but I have never tasted any beer from Ilzer so I don't know their beers so good. But does any of you know if it is the same ingredients in Ilzer's Kristall Weissbier and Erdinger Weissbier Kristallklar?

Soproni Sz?z: disgusting sweet crap, it has nothing to do with real beer. Boooooooooooah!!!

Stella Artois NA: tasty water, nothing more - I didn't like it very much.

Schlossgold 0,0: close to beer taste (bitter enough), just the power is missing. This one is the best from the three tries. With some added alcohol it would be fair enough as a real beer.

Next tests: Null komma Josef, Dreher, Borsodi P?l?
Title: Re: Beer

Buy a weak imported beer, add a few liters of water to it, mix it hard - and you will get the alcohol-free Dreher. Far the worst of the four tasted brands...
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on January 31, 2007, 07:29:29 PM
Alcohol-free test, next station: Borsodi P?l?

I read the ingredients: usual things plus E224 (antioxidant) and some citric acid. I felt the last one: the whole thing was similar to a bad, sweet lemonade. But the worst thing is that bad one is still better than Soproni and Dreher NA beers... :(

Rankings with relative scoring between 0 and 10 (NOT THE SAME SCORES AS IN REAL BEER RANKINGS). 10 pts is an ideal alcohol-free beer with the most of good qualities of a real beer (impossible).

Fantastic beer prices in the "pubs" (with only standing places and open only in the daytime... how the hell I could call them?) of Feh?rv?ri Road Market Hall! On Monday, one of them started to sell Arany ?szok T?li Selymes for 99 HUF. But the neighbouring "pub" didn't want to lose the competition, so they've been selling it for 70 HUF since Tuesday!

OFF: I also checked their short drink prices: Unicum (5 cl) is 280 HUF, Becherovka (5 cl) is 260 HUF. I would expect similar prices in Perkupa. :) (Well, as I go there in lunchtime, and than I should go back to the university, I don't drink anything "harder" than beer there.)

A lot cheaper, almost no really-well-known bands (which of course doesn't have to mean that they are worse ;)) and a very great atmosphere. I mean really very great, last year was nearly like 3 days in paradise. :)

Yes, it is the cheapest one that I've seen here, not counting alcohol-free "beers". But surprisingly, it was better than the more expensive beers I tasted before...

Btw, 1 USD = approx. 6,5 NOK.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: BonzaiJoe on June 20, 2007, 05:30:25 PM
So the cheapest beer in Norway is about 12 times as expensive as in Hungary or Argentina.
But Norway is actually the most expensive country in the world (or Iceland?), so no wonder.

The cheapest beer in Denmark is 2+1 DKK, about $0,50 for 330ml. Still so much cheaper than Norway...
Title: Re: Beer

BREAKING NEWS:

Yesterday I discovered a much more cheaper beer! Bonzai Joe, do you know Odin Pilsner? As I've seen on the label, it's produced by a Danish company in Norway... and it costs only 8,70 NOK/0,33 l!!! Let's hope it isn't the Schlossm?hle of Norway... Well, maybe the biggest discovery was the supermarket, because neither Rogaland Pils was more expensive than 10,50 NOK/0,33 l there. And a very surprising thing: the 1,25 l bottle of Odin Pilsner was 44 NOK. Why is it cheaper to buy the same amount of beer in many smaller bottles?

How news: after the silent months I'm testing new beers again. Let's start with something special from Belgium!

Scaldis Ambree (BEL, 12 % alcohol, 559 HUF/0.25 l): brand is advertised as the strongest beer of Belgium. I believe it. It tastes like a good beer mixed with whisky. I never thought before but now I say: there is an upper limit of alcohol content, over this it's getting worse and worse. 12 is too much... But still a tasteful one. Mark: 7/10

Next test: Kasteel Bruin (another strong belgian...)

By the way some of my beer rankings are missing from the forum, I'll look up the MSN logs to paste them here.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: Usrin on June 23, 2007, 03:57:12 PM

29 Feb 2008. :)
But it was crappy, only slightly better than Arany ?szok. So it doesn't deserve more than 4/10.

Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on June 23, 2007, 10:18:40 PM
Kasteel Bruin (BEL, 11% alcohol, 579 HUF/0.33 l): the other strong beer I bought yesterday. Result is totally different - this dark beer is almost the best I've ever tried! Full, high quality dark beer taste, beautiful color, maybe a bit (but only a bit) too strong. No doubt, it deserves a great mark.

I give 9.5 pts from 10.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: Akoss Poo a.k.a. Zorromeister on June 29, 2007, 11:38:18 AM
White beer or not, surprisingly good: Ilzer 7/10 (much better than Edelweiss - 3.5/10, but weaker than L?wenweisse, which is rated 9/10 at the moment).
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on June 29, 2007, 07:24:09 PM
Ilzer white beer after seeing Akoss' test: too sour but still a drinkable one. But it's really better than Edelweiss. Mark: 4.5/10
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on June 29, 2007, 11:27:29 PM
Two new NA beers:

Clausthaler - beerish water, no real fun to drink. It's not bad either - as refreshing drink. Mark: 3/10

Arany ?szok alkoholmentes - big surprise for me, it's better than some better brand's NA beer. Still not the best... Mark: 3.5/10

Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on August 26, 2007, 10:00:12 PM
Finally... I've just finished a medicine, now I could drink again. My Sturovo/P?rk?ny trip was quite useful seeing the results:

Corgon - typical quality Czechslovakian beer, quite bitter but very tasteful. Mark: 7.5/10

Smadny Mnich - it was a bit tasteless after Corgon but I enjoyed the way it killed my thirst. No doubt, it's a summer festival beer. Mark: 6/10

Saris dark beer - poor alcohol content but a very special new taste for me. I enjoyed every ccm of this beer but I still prefer the stronger types. Mark: 8/10

Beer testing next time (I didn't want to try more than 3 newbies this evening): Starobrno, Gambrinus.
Title: Re: Beer

Post by: CTG on September 11, 2007, 10:15:02 AM
Two newbies:

Kasteel Bier (BEL, 11% alcohol) - after Kasteel Bruin's great performance I expected a less tasteful one for the white beer version. I was totally wrong! I can't give less than 9.5/10 for it. :)

Chimay P?res Trappistes (BEL, 7% alcohol) - a bit weaker than Kasteel products in every aspect, but still a top beer for me. Mark: 8.5/10.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on September 21, 2007, 10:05:15 PM
Another two newbies:

Guinness (IRE, 4.3% alcohol): Expensive. Seems like coffee. Smells like coffee. Tastes like coffee. I hate coffee. Mark: 2.5/10

Kwak (BEL, 8.0% alcohol): Red women are hot. Red beer is cool. Especially this. Beautiful color, spicy taste and smell, tricky spirit, harmonic effect. Perfect! Mark: 10/10!

Post by: Akoss Poo a.k.a. Zorromeister on December 13, 2007, 07:33:54 PM
I'm thinking about creating a fair system to rate beers on the price/taste scale. The question is that how much money is worthy for a +1 mark beer?

Some good examples for very worthy beers:

Borsodi (HUN, 4,6 vol. % alcohol) 0,50 Euro 7/10
Soproni (HUN, 4,5%) 0,50 Euro 7/10
Soproni 1895 (HUN, 5,3%) 0,60 Euro 7,5/10
Dreher (HUN, 5,0%) 0,65 Euro 7,5/10
Zlaty Bazant (SVK, 5,0%) 0,60 Euro (in Hungary, the cheaper version cost that value, in Slovakia, the better one, but you have to go to Slovakia for it) 9,5/10 the better one (12% on the Slovakian extract scale) 8 the cheaper one
Pilsner Urquell (CZE, 4,4%) 0,85 Euro 9,5/10
Carlsberg (DEN, 5,0%) 0,80 Euro 9,5/10

and let's not forget about:
S?rk?ny (HUN, ?%) 0,35 Euro 5,5/10 :D :D :D

Giraf (5,6%): 3/10

A danish beer classic! Semi-dark stuff that just drinks itself and buys another one. And without feeling like you're drinking water.

Zlaty Bazant tmavy 6.5
Arany ?szok semi-dark 6.5

I was in Slovakia yesterday, so new beers will be tested soon.

I bought:

2 bottles of Starobrno 10% (I've drunk it, mark remains the same - it's a beer like Soproni)
2 bottles of Kelt 10% (I only tasted the 12% version before)
a bottle of Smadny Mnich 10% (absolute newbie)
a bottle of Zlaty Bazant 12% (one of my favourite beers, I couldn't return home from Slovakia without it)
a bottle of Saris 12% (retest will occur)
a bottle of Corgon 10% (I only tasted the 12% version before)

Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on January 25, 2008, 07:05:08 PM
Goldstar dark lager (ISR, 4.9%, 245 HUF/0.33 l): significantly better than Maccabee. Typical beer of warm days without any dark beerish taste and power. It deserves... hmmm... 5.5 pts from 10.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on January 25, 2008, 10:07:20 PM
Abbaye de Saint Martin Bruin (BEL, 8%, 399 HUF/0.33 l): really Belgian taste (maybe a bit too much fruit aroma), no power, even with 8% of alcohol. Not the best Belgian... but still a pretty good one. Mark: 7.5/10

Abbaye de Saint Martin Blond (BEL, 7%, 399 HUF/0.33 l): tastes like rose tea (???), powerless, but it also has the characteristic "abbaye beers" backtaste. If I said not the best for Bruin then this one was a bit disappointing. Mark: 6.5/10

Tonight alcoholic balance:

750 ccm of Ostorosi Medina wine (HUN, sweet, 11.5% alcohol)
330 ccm Abbaye de Saint-Martin Blonde beer (BEL, 7% alcohol)
330 ccm Abbaye de Saint-Martin Bruin beer (BEL, 8% alcohol)
330 ccm Goldstar dark lager beer (ISR, 4.9% alcohol)
750 ccm Balatoni CTG (LOL) wine (HUN, semi-sweet, 10.5% alcohol)

It means 230 ccm alcohol. Still standing. ;D

I have a friend who drinks 2 glasses of vegetal oil before drinking alcohol, and says that keeps him from getting drunk. I don't really know if it works, but I've seen him drunk many times... althouhg maybe he didn't have oil those times.

...unless he somehow managed to overload his liver with the oil, thus slowing down alcohol metabolism, which seems quite unlikely and in any case not funny at all... :-X

On the other hand eating some really heavy dishes with high fat content like bacon makes you stronger versus alcohol, especially hard drinks (p?linka, absinth).

He says vegetal oil (as it is quite thick) forms a kind of protector film againts liver walls, so difficult alcohol metabolism.

Old Hungarian men when they went to their wine cellar to get drunken, also ate a spoon of fat (or lot of bread with fat and onion) in order to avoid vomiting. With that, fat formed a layer on their stomach, so too much alcohol didn't make them vomit. They were drunken, but they stood alcohol well. Me and my friends also use this method (with the bread/fat/onion option) on wine cellar parties. :)

Then I saw someone rating it to 0,8 where minimum is 0,5. I checked out which type of beer he liked and saw that he was into ciders, fruity beers and such. I just love a dark beer with lots of alcohol.. :P

Test of Slovakian beers:

Kelt 10% - not worse than the 12% version was, mark: 7.5
Smadny Mnich 10% - uncharacteristic, a bit bitter taste... I don't like it so much, mark: 4
Saris 12% - now I have to give a 7 mark on it
Corgon 10% - not bad, but nothing really special, mark: 6
Title: Re: Beer

Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on February 25, 2008, 05:20:19 PM
So before I forget those Belgians:

Tripel Carmeliet (BEL, 8% alcohol, 529 HUF/0.33 l): too intensive foaming (typical illness of concentrated dark beers), nothing extra, just the usual Abbaye stuff in almost good quality. Not the best one either... Mark: 7/10

St. Benoit Blonde (BEL, 6.3% alcohol, 439 HUF/0.33 l): too much Belgians in a row, maybe I'm bored in them - this one was another member of the Belgian scheme. Slightly better than the first one, although it was a bit weak for me in alcohol content. Mark: 8/10
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on March 16, 2008, 02:22:18 PM
Four newbies in the last few weeks, the fifth is in the fridge. Let's see them:

Sagres (POR, 6.6% alcohol, 279 HUF/0.33 l): surprise from an unusual beer country! Red beer, such as Kwak and almost as good as it was. Big wow! Mark: 9/10.

Westmalle Trappist Tripel (BEL, 9.5% alcohol, 629 HUF/0.33 l): the most expensive beer ever tried - I was afraid of a big disappointment. Lucky case, this one was a really good one: very strong, very tasteful. Great beer! Mark: 9/10.

Orval (BEL, 6.2% alcohol, 579 HUF/0.33 l): just another Belgian with beautiful bottle, average abbaye beer taste and a bit weak alcoholic taste - 6.2% used to seem stronger in other beers. Mark: 8/10.

Szent István sör (HUN, 4.6% alcohol, 159 HUF/0.5 l, but in an expensive non-stop supermarket): typical 3rd class non-quality beer for alcoholists, similar to Köbányai but with a bit stronger sour backtaste. Weak-mediorce one, I won't ever drink it anymore, unless I get it for free. Mark: 3/10.

So the fifth one is still left - it's a Belgian again. ;)
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on March 16, 2008, 10:30:08 PM
Delirium Tremens (BEL, 8.5%, 579 HUF/0.33 l): too Belgian. It's not a complain, just a fact. Not the best anyway. Mark: 7.5/10.

Two FRENCH newbies from last Friday:

Grimbergen Cuvée Ambrée (FRA, 6.5 % alcohol, 250 HUF/ 0.25 l): abbaye beer France, quite different from the Belgians. I liked the taste but missed the power in spite of it's alcohol content. Mark: 7.5/10.

Wel Stoch au malt des Highlands (FRA, 6.2 % alcohol, 250 HUF/ 0.25 l): very special one, containing the malt of whisky. Very tasteful and good beer, even if it's not a typical "CTG's favorite" type. Mark: 8.5/10.

Title: Re: Beer

Oh my God, the first kriek "beer" of my life! I won't rate it because it's really far from beerish taste with the added cherry, but I have to say it's an excellent and tasteful (sweet) - maybe a bit femalish - drink (imaginary score: 10/10, don't add it to the database). Oh and what's that exactly? Kasteel Rouge (BEL, 8% alcohol, 579 HUF/ 0.33 l). I suggest it for Diesel Still Drinking Joe! ;)

Ratings of the mentioned Czech beers:

Primátor Double (CZE, 10,5%): 4/10
Primátor Rytírsky (CZE, 9,0%): 5,5/10
Primátor Polotmavy (CZE, 5,5%): 8,5/10

The quality of those strong Primátor beers is really good, but they are really sweet besides the normal taste of dark beers... it isn't for my taste.


And the newest one:

Niksicko (MNE, 5,0%): 4/10

It is the most popular beer in Montenegro, but it reminded me on the strange tastes of some Hungarian "home-made" beers.

Before I forget, two other french newbies from Auchan:

Grain D'Orge Cuvée 1898 (FRA, 8.5% alcohol, 499 HUF/0.5 l): well, well, well... French beer factories should learn from their neighbour (Belgium). Even if it is a strong beer (couldn't really feel it), it isn't really characteristic and has a bad sour backtaste. I didn't like it very much compared to the price. Mark: 3.5/10

La Divine St Ladelin (FRA, 8.5% alcohol, 499 HUF/0.5 l): a lot better than the first one. Not very characteristic, not very strong taste - but still quite good to drink on a warm day. Mark: 6.5/10

Well I bought no beer in Kosice... but a nice bottle of Becherovka! ;)

Quote from: Wikipedia
Becherovka is an herbal bitters made in Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic, flavored with anise seeds, cinnamon, and approximately 32 other herbs, first sold in 1807. It is normally served cold, and is often used as an aid to digestion. It can also be served with tonic water, in which case it is known as a beton (Czech for "concrete"). Its alcohol content is 38 percent.

Post by: CTG on May 23, 2008, 10:06:31 AM
Another belgian on the list:

Barbar Blonde Au Miel (BEL, 8% alcohol, 579 HUF/0.33 l): the usual strong belgian beer taste with some piquant savour in the background thanks to the added honey. Belgians really know how to make extra fine beer specialities! Mark: 9/10

Another beer combo:

San Miguel (ESP, 5.4% alcohol, 399 HUF/0.5 l): I don't know if I tried this already earlier or not - so I had to taste it again(?). Not very characteristic, average taste, good for warm days. Mark: 5.5/10

1664 Blanc (FRA, 5% alcohol, 319 HUF/0.25 l): not exactly a beer - it contains added spices: orange, coriander. Excellent taste but it's really not beerish. Mark: unofficial 10/10, don't add it to the rankings.

Satan Red (BEL, 8% alcohol, 539 HUF/0.33 l): Belgian and strong - quite a usual one. Nothing more. Mark: 7.5/10

Two newbies and an almost forgotten one from 2006:

Lasko Zlatorog (SLO, 4.9 % alcohol, 179 HUF/0.5 l): average beer for a warm day. Quality is something like Borsodi or Soproni. Mark: 5.5/10

Baltika No. 7 (RUS, 5.4% alcohol, 579 HUF/0.5 l): not very strong but tasteful refreshing light beer from Russia. What a shame, it's too expensive... Mark: 7.5/10

Info for Usrin: these are available in Auchan (Savoya Park) - thanks to Parador Co. There are also some unusual beer from Belgium (several brands), France (several brands), Portugal (Sagres), Vietnam (Saigon), Japan, Romania...

And the old one:

El Grande (FRA, 5.9% alcohol, don't remember the price, maybe ~350 HUF/0.33 l two years ago): contains added rum which gives quite a good taste to this beer. Not my favorite but it was worth to try. Mark: 8/10

And so many beers are missing from my rankings tried in 2006: Schöfferhofer, Köstritzer Schwarzbier, Wernesgrüner, etc... I can't really remember them.

Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on August 21, 2008, 08:45:43 PM
Warsteiner (GER, 4.8% alcohol, 199 HUF/0.33 l): great summer beer without real power but with nice bitter taste. Mark: 7.5/10.

Now let's continue with the well-known Pilsner Urquell.  ;)
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on August 21, 2008, 11:20:05 PM
So the promised six beers from the last few weeks:

Flensburger Dunkel (GER, 4.8% alcohol, 259 HUF/0.33 l): disappointing dark beer without power and a bit waterish taste. No bad backtaste but I don't recommend this one for dark beer lovers. Mark: 4.5/10

Flensburger Weizen (GER, 5.1% alcohol, 259 HUF/0.33 l): a lot better than the dunkel version. Great wheat beer, although it wasn't very strong. Mark: 8/10

Tatra Jasne Pelne (POL, 6.0% alcohol, 2.79 PLZ/0.5 l in a non-stop supermarket): good-mediorce semi-strong beer, nothing really special but I liked it. Mark: 7/10

Zywiec (POL, 5.6% alcohol, 6 PLZ/1 l in a restaurant): strange one. Tastes like an average beer with average alcohol content - but somehow it hits. Another strange thing: it had more metallic taste than other canned beers in Poland. Mark: 6/10

Okocim Mocne (POL, 7.1% alcohol, 2.75 PLZ/0.5 l): very special and delicious beer, it has 15% (!) extract content. A little bit sweet but in the good meaning. I liked it very-very much! Mark: 9.5/10

Zubr (POL, 6.0% alcohol, 2.50 PLZ/0.5 l): quite good, but nothing special again. I felt the semi-high alcohol and extract content. Mark: 6.5/10

Beer tests:

Soproni Fekete Démon 4.5/10 - nothing special
Blanche De Namur 6.5/10 - I guess the tastes of the beers were mixed in my mouth and I was hungry, maybe it would have deserved a bit more
Erdinger dark wheat beer 5.5/10 - rather dark than wheat, that's why Usrin liked it more than me
Prince (cheap beer) 3.5/10 - drinkable category
Title: Re: Beer

I just recognized that Blanche de Namur was a newbie for me too, so...

Blanche de Namur (BEL, 4.5% alcohol, 399 HUF/0.33 l): weak in alcohol content but quite tasteful white beer anyway. Not my usual style. Mark: 7.5/10

Then visit Profi, Penny Market, Lidl and cheap supermarkets like these. Spar and Tesco also offers some kinds of cheap beers, though not as many as the previous ones. The best cheap beers are: Grafen Walder (Lidl) and Sárkány (Spar); Grafen Walder is a class better..

Are you making sure that you drink the beers in the same surroundings by the way? This night I realized how much the surroundings influence the taste of the beer. We have a beer in Denmark called "Top" which is rather bad, BUT when it's served at my new "beer drinking place", it tastes heavenly. It's always served very cold, it's only 12 kr and it's so lovely to sit there with my friends (for some reason it's become a "Tuesday thing" for us)...all in all: A beer which is normally "2,5" becomes a "9" <3 :)

Murphy's (IRE, 5.0% alcohol, 489 HUF/0.33 l): very characteristic and a bit strange full taste, high quality bitter red beer. Ways better than Guinness and Kilkenny, although it's really far from my style. Mark: 8/10.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on September 29, 2008, 04:54:59 PM
Karpackie (POL, 9.0% alcohol, 199 HUF/0.5 l): bad strong taste, too high alcohol content for this type of beer. The only positive thing is the price: ~4.4 HUF/ccm alcohol is quite reasonable (just to compare: Borsodi 4.7; Dreher Bak 5.3; average absinth ~7.5; Martini ~8.5; average good Hungarian red wine ~10-12; Kwak beer ~20.0). Mark: 2.5/10

Three newbies from the last few weeks, not the best testing period in my life...

Witte Trappist La Trappe (NED, 5.5% alcohol, 399 HUF/0.33 l): strange wheat beer with unusual (but good) sour taste without the sign of yeast backtaste. Unfortunately it's not enough strong. Mark: 7.5/10

Peter's Beer Schwarzbrau (HUN, 5.6% alcohol, 379 HUF/1 l): home made "black" beer in plastic bottle, with a color very similar to cheap Cola. Taste is simply bad: a bit bitter, similar to coffee-grounds. It lasted long-long hours to drink... Mark: 1.5/10

LAV (SRB, 5.2% alcohol, 139 HUF/0.5 l): new cheap beer from the south? After tasting... well, 139 is too much for a metallic taste solution - I felt more "iron" is my mouth than after drinking canned beers. This one was just bad - but not the disgusting level. Mark: 2.5/10
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on October 28, 2008, 12:42:06 PM
I'm planning to taste some really cheap and probably bad beers - just to calibrate the scale between 1 and 3.

One month without beer tests and I think another sober period is coming in December. I have to save money, computers are expensive - so I mustn't spend 5000-8000 HUF/month for it as I usually do... :-\

I just went for one month without drinking beer (or any other kind of alcohol, or coffee). That was really strange in good and bad ways. Somehow it helped to stop my life and then press reset and start again. I was also able to formulate more advanced thoughts, and sharp in debate. However, it was also a boring and quite useless month, I didn't get anything done nor experience anything particularly interesting.

I'm also without alcohol for "ages" (~3 weeks +/- 2 days) but I miss an own computer a lot more than alcohol. You know: MSN, porn sites... ;D

Okay, this 3 weeks soberness from my own will is quite a cheated one, because I mustn't drink to avoid crashing with meds (the concussion thing, still not fixed, CT for CTG: 23rd December...).

Silence is broken because of a new beer... :D

Birra Moretti (ITA, 4.6% alcohol, 209 HUF/0.33 l): new country on my beer list - not the most successful introduction... It was something like Borsodi, just with a bit more sweet-sour mixed backtaste because of the additional corn (quality beers mustn't contain this additive). Not bad but the good is not like that... Nice bottle anyway. Mark: 5/10.

Bad guess. First test of 2009:

Gösser Bock (AUT, 7% alcohol, 199 HUF/0.5 l): not the best bock beer ever but still a delicious (and strong) one. Mark: 7/10.

Last week I was in Scotland, and tasted some beers. Don't be surprised, 30-40% of the beers in the shops of Aberdeen is Polish.

Okocim Jasne Pelne (POL, 5.5%): 6.5/10.
Tyskie Gronie (POL, 5.6%): 7.5/10.
Belhaven Best (SCO, 3.5%): 6/10. Surprisingly strong and real "beerish" aroma with this low alcohol content.
Belhaven Best Bitter (SCO, 4%): 4.5/10. But why is it called "bitter"?
Tennent's Super (SCO, 9.0%): 1/10. As I remember, it was the second beer in my life (after Ilzer) from which I had to spill the remaining into the toilet after tasting. OK, I've never tried the famous Schlossmühle...
Guinness (IRL, 4.3%): 5/10. I can't understand why is it so famous and why is it so expensive on the continent. Stupid fashion...

The two Belhaven beers were served at the conference, but I saw them for 0.80-0.90 GBP in Tesco. The others costed between 1.00-1.40 GBP. (Polish beers: 500 ml, Scottish and Irish ones: 440 ml.) Unfortunately I forgot to note the exact prices.

1 GBP=300 HUF=1.1 EUR.

Well, it seems somehow I'll also have to test the Polish beers! Btw I think I forgot to add a score to the beer ratings:

Foster's (AUS) 6.5/10 - characteristic, good enough, but not typically my taste; but it was worthy to buy one bottle of it

Btw my taste is changing, I drank a Holsten last week, and it tasted much better than some years ago. But Dreher Classic wasn't as fantastic as earlier, but was still very good.

Two newbies, not the best result...

Dendermonde (BEL, 8% alcohol, 579 HUF/0.33 l): the worst belgian beer ever... it's really bad - not only on Belgian scale but in general. I don't recommend this to try: alcoholic, bad bitter taste, no sign of real abbaye beer bouquet. Too expensive to drink it only for the alcohol content. Mark: 2.5/10

Stiegl (AUT, 4.9% alcohol, 269 HUF/0.33 l): average Austrian "festival beer", I don't know why does it cost so much... Drinkable, that's the best I can say about it - Borsodi is better. Mark: 4.5/10

And now let's continue with Diesel Joe's favorite drink: cherry... ;D
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on March 10, 2009, 05:07:36 PM
Italian newbie...

Birra Moretti La Rossa (ITA, 7.2% alcohol, 279 HUF/0.33 l): nice color (red beer), but quite alcoholic and not very characteristic taste, mediorce quality. There are many cheaper strong beers to get drunk. Mark: 5.5/10

Warsteiner (GER, 4.8% alcohol, 199 HUF/0.33 l): great summer beer without real power but with nice bitter taste. Mark: 7.5/10.

I tested Warsteiner last weekend. I haven't missed the power, it's a beer, not a pálinka. Its taste was clearer than the known Hungarian beers, however, I agree that its not a "world-class" one. In my rankings:

Warsteiner (GER, 4.8%, 179 HUF/0.33 l as reduced price in SPAR): 8.5/10.

Another newbie:

Courage Directors (GBR, 4.8% alcohol content, 610 HUF/0.5 l): nice ale beer with noble redish color, delicious taste with dry, bitter effect. Not my usual style but it seems to be a really good one. Mark: 8/10.

According to my beer caps, ~13% of my beers was Dreher Bak in the last few years. The second place Carlsberg has only ~6%... :)

Let's see the exact stats, I just checked them last evening!

Found 360 caps in the box, only a part of my drinking performance:

- beer is not the only alcoholic stuff I used to drink
- usually losing the caps of bottles from drinking outside of my room
- strongly damaged caps went to trash bin
- bottles with special closure and canned beers

Many of the caps remained unidentified (like Pilsner Urquell, about 8-10 pieces would be realistic in these stats). Identified beers, drinking at least twice:

47 – Dreher Bak (that's a knockout)
21 – Carlsberg
18 – Dreher Classic
17 – Borsodi (would be second... the caps from drinking with Poo)
15 – Stella Artois
12 – Sárkány
10 – Kozel
10 – Soproni
9 – Pittinger
8 – Heineken
8 – Zlaty Bazant
7 – Schlossgold (non-alcoholic... :D)
7 – Soproni 1895
6 – Arany Ászok Téli Selymes/Félbarna (same beer traded under two different names)
6 – Löwenbrau
5 – Tuborg Gold
4 – Warsteiner
3 – Amstel Lager
3 – Birra Moretti Rosso (only 3-pack was available)
3 – Budvar
3 – Talléros
3 – Tuborg Green
2 – Amstel Bock
2 – Arany Ászok
2 – Borsodi Bivaly
2 – Gambrinus
2 – Hoegaarden Grand Cru
2 – Hofbrau München
2 – Kaiser
2 – Maisel’s Weisse Original
2 – Sagres
2 – Tripel Karmeliet

Murphy's Irish Red Beer (303 HUF/0.33 l in a bargain, normal price would have been 404 HUF): 4,5/10.

Borostyán-like beer with not too strong, but disappointing sourish, metallic aroma. Well, this strange taste disappears from my mouth after swallowing the beer, and the backtaste is really similar to Borostyán. However, I won't buy Murphy's anymore.

Okay, I have to complete it once...

Bombardier (GBR, 5.2% alcohol, 619 HUF/0.5 l): quite a disappointment after Courage with dry bitter taste... not extremely bad, but I expected a lot more for this money. Mark: 4.5/10.

Kingfisher (IND, 4.8% alcohol, 399 HUF/0.33 l): beer advertised on Force India rear wing. Well... first impression was good, seems to be a delicious light festival beer. Then came a strange backtaste - the same I felt long-long time ago in a totally different drink - backtaste of Impra rose tea (I hated that). :D My opinion is quite divided now, let's say... Mark: 4/10.

Tripel Karmeliet (BEL, 8% alcohol, 539 HUF/0.33 l): already tried once, can't find the score of it - so re-testing. :D Full "Belgian taste" (after so many beers from that country I see the similarities :)), quite delicious and powerful one. Mark: 8.5/10

Soproni Szöke Ciklon (HUN, 4.5% alcohol, 179 HUF/0.5 l): I can't see the point why Soproni started to trade another weak light beer without real taste. This is just useless. And forgettable. Mark: 3/10.

Bavaria (NED, 5% alcohol, 299 HUF/0.33 l): a good summer beer, something like Heineken - it seems Dutches are good in this cathegory. I got what I expected from such a drink: thirst-killer with characteristic, but not so strong taste. Another good example would be Warsteiner for this. Good choice if you don't want a "saviour" drink, just a nice bottle of quality beer. Mark: 8/10.

Bavaria Claro! (NED, 5% alcohol, 299 HUF/0.33 l): summer beer with rice, I would rather call it "little sweet nothing". It's delicious, but not enough beerish. I suggest this one for women. Mark: 6.5/10.

Lasko Dark (SLO, 5.9% alcohol, 299 HUF/0.33 l): nice color, great taste, but no real power - quite similar to Czech/Slovakian dark beers. Mark: 7/10.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: Usrin on May 23, 2009, 04:01:00 PM
Bergenbier (ROM, 4.8%, 1.70 RON/0.5 l): Average start followed by ugly, medicine-like, long-lasting backtaste. 2.5/10.
Ciuc Premium (ROM, 5.0%, 4.50 RON/0.5 l in a pub): Great surprise, much better than the "original" Ciuc which I remembered from 2002. Almost like a perfect Czech/Slovak beer. 8.5/10.

Bavaria 8.6 Red (NED, 7.9% alcohol, 399 HUF/0.5 l, canned): nice color, delicious sweet fruit taste combined with the power of the high alcohol content (no metallic backtaste from the can, wow!). Almost an ideal one for me, right behind the top Belgians. Mark: 9/10.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on June 23, 2009, 05:12:56 PM
HB Münchner Weisse (GER, 5.1% alcohol, 359 HUF/0.5 l): not a very good one, rather sour without any delicious "witbeer" taste. Not worth to buy. Mark: 5/10.

3 swedish newbies from IKEA's swedish delicatessen (some silly people go to IKEA to buy furniture - I bought beer and biscuit there... ;D):

Mariestads (SWE, 5.3% alcohol, 290 HUF/0.5 l can): average summer beer, a little bit bitter for me in the bad meaning of the word. Mark 5.5/10

Three Hearts Stockholm Fine Festival (SWE, 5.3% alcohol, 250 HUF/0.33 l can): the same as for Mariestads, maybe a bit more metallic and bitter taste. Still drinkable. Mark: 4.5/10

Spendrups Old Gold (SWE, 5% alcohol, 290 HUF/0.33 l): another average beer, good for warm days but nothing more. Mark: 5.5/10

Lech (POL, ca. 5%): 7.5/10
Zubr (POL, 6.0%): 6.5/10

During the meeting, I was so lucky that I got a bottle of HB for free in a nearby shop. (I bought a Pilsner Urquell and a HB, but the cashier only counted the price of the former one. I saved 185+25 (for the bottle) HUF that way.

Argus (GER, Lidl) - better than the Argus Strong, but still not better than: 3.5/10
Karpackie (POL) - more or less the same words can be said as about Braumeister. Cheap summer beer, not bad: 5.5/10

The main story is shitty, and it isn't related to Sárkány Beer, but read the last few comments. (Sorry, it's in Hungarian.)

What a pity I haven't drank Sárkány Beer for years... But in the next days, it will be sold for 129 HUF/0,5 l in Interspar. and I will try it again.

Title: Borsodi Búza
Post by: Usrin on June 28, 2011, 12:51:19 PM
As I told long ago, I don't like wheat beers. But this year, a new one appeared in shops of Hungary, from a very famous brand: Borsodi, whose lager is very popular, and there's a well-known rhyme telling that it induces erection. So I definitely had to try Borsodi Búza, the newbie, although it wasn't too cheap (220 HUF/0.5 l)... It was a big surprise. I felt nothing of the typical taste of wheat beers (which is too sour and medicine-like for me), and I didn't feel anything else... It was rather like a noname, featureless soft drink. Then I decided to buy Löwenweisse, a well-known wheat beer to check whether my taste changed so much, or Borsodi Búza is so strange. The answer is the latter. Löwenweisse was characteristic, and it had the typical (bad) taste of wheat beers I remembered. So I wouldn't recommend Borsodi Búza even to wheat beer fans...

However, the original Borsodi (lager) and Borsodi Bivaly are not worse than before!

Quintine Blonde (BEL, 8% alcohol, 749 HUF/0.33 l): the Belgian "stereotype", excellent one, maybe a little bit too strong alcoholic taste. Mark: 9/10.

Gulden Draak (BEL, 10.5% alcohol, 749 HUF/0.33 l): strange, but it has less alcoholic taste, than the former one. However, it's not a real Belgian for me, just an average dark beer. Mark: 7/10.

Something from the deep...

Augsteiner Weissbier (GER, 5.3% alcohol, 169 HUF/0.5 l can): crap, crap, crap. Not a wheat beer at all, just water with the weak taste of rotten yeast. Really bad. Mark: 2/10.

Augsteiner Weissbier was also tasted by me. It's not that crappy, though it's not good. 4/10

Another new beer: Borsodi Búza. 3/10. Does not have a wheat beer taste.

Now I'm living farther from the cheap Holsten/Tuborg Green shop than in the previous 3.5 years, so it was time to get back to Borsodi. There's a cheap supermarket near where I can buy it.

Any of you on www.ratebeer.com? I have tasted over 500 different beers at the moment and it seems that my favourite taste is Old Traditional Ale and Barley Wines. My worst kind of beer is pilsner with no head and very metallic and water-like. Just as Rotois Corona - yuck! you could drink water instead. You should try some beers from the american brewery Brewdog instead..  8)

I think I would have to re-rate the beers I know. Some good old brands have changed their quality (some of them improved, others declined) in the last few years. Or maybe my taste has changed...

Btw, I had a very positive surprise last week. Tuborg Green was sold for 150 HUF/0,5 l in Tesco, if buying at least 3 bottles. Nowadays even the basic Hungarian beers (Borsodi, Soproni, Arany Ászok, etc.) are more expensive, moreover, this Tuborg was not brewed in Croatia, so I didn't expect too much. But it turned out that Tuborg Green still belongs to a higher class of beers. Borsodi & Soproni (which I usually enjoy) are featureless, water-like liquids if compared to it...

Final result: Tuborg Green (CRO, 4,6% V/V) - 9/10.
Title: Re: Beer

New evaluation of some further beers I have recently had:

Borsodi: 5/10
Soproni: 6/10
Soproni 1895: 7.5/10
Arany Ászok: 4/10
Dreher: 4.5/10 (very serious decline... in price/value ratio, even Arany Ászok, the 'low class' brand of the same brewery is better)
Kozel (HUN): 3/10 (the above-mentioned brewery in Budapest started to brew this crappy product with the good-sounding Czech name and logo).
HB (HUN): 4/10 (similar story, with the same brewery)
Löwenbrau (HUN): 2.5/10 (similar story, but with Borsodi Brewery)
Steffl (HUN): 4.5/10 (similar story, with Soproni Brewery)

I also tend to think that the taste and quality of beers are changing. I rather believe in that, since the good old Pilsner Urquell, probably the best beer, still have the same taste and quality for me (and it is still a Czech import), which means my taste has not changed.

I strongly agree with the things Usrin wrote about basic Hungarian beers and average import beers, I also experienced that. I know a small shop where Borsodi was sold for 185 HUF last year, while Tuborg Green cost 180 HUF and Holsten cost 170 HUF. I never bought Borsodi there. Now this small shop is farther from me, I choose other shops.

But in shops like Coop, Reál and Alfi, Hungarian beers have a better price related to import beers, than in supermarkets like Tesco. In a nearby Coop, I can always get my canned Borsodi for 169 HUF. :D

Let me rate some beers then:

Pilsner Urquell 10
Löwenweisse 9.5
Dreher 7 (but not as good as it was earlier)
Soproni 1895 7
Holsten* 6.5
Amstel 6
Borsodi 6 (+erection induction +home beer -> 10 pts  ;D)
Tuborg Green* 6
Soproni 5.5
Grafen Walder (Lidl) 5
Köbányai 5
HB HUN 4.5
Steffl HUN 4.5
Carlsberg SRB 4 (!!!; I would not call it Carlsberg at all...)
Arany Ászok 3
Kozel HUN 3
Löwenbrau HUN 2

The Hungarian beers are not that bad (the basic Hungarian brands are: Borsodi, Soproni, Köbányai, Szalon, Arany Ászok, Dreher). Soproni 1895 and Dreher are quality beers with a good taste, the other ones are around average.

The bad ones on our lists are brewed in Hungary under license of non-Hungarian beer breweries - these beers are marked with 'HUN' code, not the real Hungarian ones.

It was a good idea: I could buy it for 139 HUF/0.5 l in the shop closest to my workplace, and it proved to be not worse than other members of the Dreher-Arany Ászok "family". (Köbányai is the least advertised, cheapest, although traditional brand of the same brewery.)

Köbányai (4.3% V/V): 4.5/10. Not bad in price/value ratio!

Beer trip accomplished! And I still don't have any problem with Šariš...

Ratings of some Slovak (& Czech) beers, March 2012:
Kelt 10° (SVK, 0,65 EUR/0.5 l): 5/10. Something serious happened to the one-time famous Kelt.. or I would have to taste the Czech-brewed 12° version.
Zlaty Bažant 12° (SVK, 0.82 EUR/0.5 l): 9/10. Excellent!!!
Šariš 12° (SVK, 0.79 EUR/0.5 l): 7/10. Not outstanding, but better than the 'average' Hungarian brands.
Topvar 12° (SVK, 0.79 EUR/0.5 l): 7.5/10.
Kozel 12° (SVK, 0.85 EUR/0.5 l): 8/10. It has nothing to do with the weak Hungarian copy... simply a different world!

Dark beers:
Šariš Red (0.95 EUR/0.5 l): 7/10.
Zlaty Bažant Tmavý (SVK, 0.93 EUR/0.5 l): 5.5/10. No problem with its taste, but weaker, less characteristic than I expected.
Master Tmavý 18° (CZE, 7.0% V/V, 1.09 EUR/0.355 l): 8.5/10. Very similar to Dreher Bak.

Btw, beer prices are much higher than they were several years ago... So it's no more worth to buy beer in Slovakia for saving money.

I am just back from a trip in Transylvania (Romania). I held a conference presentation there, and of course I took some beers home. Official beer test tonight!

The beers to be tested:

- Ursus (ROM, 5.0%, 2.70 lei/can)
- Silva (ROM, 5.1%, 2.40 lei/can)
- Ciuc (ROM, 5.0%, 2.90 lei/can)

I knew Ursus before, I gave 8.0 on it two years ago, and I tasted it again in Romania. Ciuc is the beer which I've just tasted for the first time on my trip. Silva is a totally new beer for me. I drank these beers under very different circumstances (being f*cking thristy, having it rather warm), so I decided to rely on tonight's test. Ursus and Ciuc can expect a high rating - they are better than the commercial Hungarian beers.
Title: Re: Beer
Post by: Akoss Poo a.k.a. Zorromeister on April 02, 2012, 10:30:24 PM
Result of beer test:

- Ursus 7.5/10 (a quality lager with a bitter taste - my style of beer, it still can keep its good result)
- Ciuc 7/10 (not too bitter, but this pils has a clean, characteristic good taste)
- Silva 6/10 (not bad, but it has a bit too heavy taste which I can't really like in beers).

Very good price/taste ratio. Romania is still a cheaper country than Hungary.

Which one is the worst? I have a candidate for this title... Yesterday I bought a can of Tatra beer (POL, 6,0% V/V, 4.00 PLN/0.5 l) at Warsaw airport. It had only weak signs of beer taste, it was rather sweetish with a "synthetic" backtaste. Well, it's a cheap one (for comparison, Okocim was 5.50 PLN in the same shop), but...

After all, I decided that it would be worth drinking it instead of spilling, and at least it gave me some great BÖFFs. So it wasn't as undrinkable as the good old Ilzer Beer (1.0/10) many years ago - and deserved 2.0/10.

Btw the unit of alcohol consumption has recently changed. The alcohol content of Borsodi beer has decreased to 4.5 percent (from 4.6 percent). That means the can/bottle of Borsodi only contains 22.5 ccm Et-OH instead of 23 ccm. Since an alcohol content of a Borsodi is the unit of alcohol consumption, now we have to calculate with the new data.

But at the moment there is a Borsodi for a discount prize. A new can contains 10 percent more beer (with 4.5 percent alcohol content). With this, the current unit of alcohol consumption is 550*0.045=24.75 ccm. I'm enjoying it during the Netherlands-Denmark football ECH match! BÖFF!!!

That means a can/bottle of Borsodi only contains 22.5 ccm Et-OH instead of 23 ccm. Since an alcohol content of a Borsodi is the unit of alcohol consumption, now we have to calculate with the new data.

But at the moment there is a Borsodi for a discount prize. A new bottle contains 10 percent more beer (with 4.5 percent alcohol content). With this, the current unit of alcohol consumption is 550*0.045=24.75 ccm. I'm enjoying it during the Netherlands-Denmark football ECH match! BÖFF!!!

HIHETETLEN!!! Why on earth should it have been done with our good old Borsodi? At least, increasing the bottle size is a good idea, but I'm afraid that it's only for a short time...

Btw, some recently tested beers:

Borg Plis Lettøl (NOR, 2,5% V/V, 4.50 NOK/0.33 l): 5.5/10.
"Semi-alcoholic" for avoiding the high tax on alcoholic drinks, so maybe offtopic here... but has a surprisingly good taste, similar to Tuborg and Carlsberg (Scandinavian style?). The only strange thing: it has a very weak foam, CO2 content rather appears like in a soft drink.

Borg Pils (NOR, 4.5% V/V, 11.50 NOK/0.33 l): 6.5/10.
Similar to the above version, but with almost normal foam. Similar to Carlsberg and Tuborg, although less characteristic.

Kompils (NOR, 4.5 V/V%, 19.90 NOK/0.5 l): 3/10.
Like a "noname", shitty beer in Hungary... drinkable, but watery, with not so good taste. (It's the cheapest beer which I could find with normal alcohol content, in a normal-sized can.)

have lots of fun! Looks like the new job also brought more travel to your life.

Next week finally holidays for me! We are going to Hangzhou and Moganshan.
Looking forward to it, but if I would drink beer it would be nevertheless interesting from that perspecgive, as two local beers are available:

1. Moganshan Beer is a small local brewery (very rare in China), comes for 3Y (105Huf) per bottle
2. Anji Beer is special - it is made out of bamboo. In fact it is called "Anji bamboo science beer"

Thanks! Well, we don't travel so much, neither to that German office of the company. (All affairs can be discussed online...) But as a newbie, I'm going there for kind of an internal training. So probably I'll have only 1 beer/day (although I know that one beer is not a beer). But that will mean 15 different types during my stay.
:)

2. Anji Beer is special - it is made out of bamboo. In fact it is called "Anji bamboo science beer"

Grrr... I'm afraid I would be too conservative for that. However, it can't be worse than Tesco Value and Ilzer beers (early versions of Schlossmühle).

Btw, the price of Moganshan is very attractive!

Hehe, I found a much better deal in LIDL!

Grafenwalder Gold (GER, 0.29 EUR(!!!)/0.5 l, 4.9% V/V): 6/10. It is absolutely OK: nothing special, but a good 'basic' beer like Soproni or Borsodi. Perhaps it's not the same that they sell under the same brand in Hungary.

Notably, the deposit for the bottle (0.25 EUR) is almost the same as the price of the beer. Like it was for Schlossmühle (with exactly the same ratio, 29/25).

Btw, it seems that crappy beers also exist in Germany... At least, 5.0 Original (with a name referring to the alcohol content) is crappy with some sour taste, far from what I would expect from a beer. 0.39 EUR, 2.5/10.

Grafenwalder is an okay beer here at home, too - I always told you that. The one they sell here in Hungarian Lidls is somewhere around 5.5 for me. Occasionally I buy it, it is really not bad.
By the way it is also packed in a gold can, and the alcohol content is 4.9% as well.

Wow, almost twice as expensive as here?   :o

Besides the four types (Gold, Pils, Hefe-Weiss and a dark) of Grafenwaldner, LIDL has one more beer brand in Germany. It's Bergadler Premium Pils, which I'm drinking at the moment. (It was 0.37 EUR/0.5 l.) If I didn't know that it's not a Grafenwaldner, probably I wouldn't feel any difference. So the mark is the same: 6.0/10.

I also tasted Welde Pils today - finally a really good, tasteful German beer, although not exceptional. It deserved 7.5/10. (I payed 2.50 EUR for 0.33 l in a bar, which was the only place with beer within 2 km. No information about its price in shops.)

Ureich Premium Pils (0.69 EUR/0.5 l, 4.8 V/V%): 7/10
Ratskrone Export (0.39 EUR/0.5 l, 5.2 V/V%): 5.5/10
Kühler Krug Unfiltriert (2.29 EUR/0.75 l, 5.2 V/V%): 7.5/10. It's a speciality from a small brewery in Karlsruhe. It smells like a "white beer" (unfortunately I don't like them), but it has very good taste- Quite similar to an "ordinary" beer, but richer aroma.
Grafenwalder Pils (0.29 EUR/0.5 l, 5.2 V/V%): 6/10. Same quality with Grafenwalder Gold, but slightly more bitter (as it is a Pils).

Further newbies are coming! It seems that I found several good German beers, but still nothing outstanding.

Kloster Landbier (GER, 0.69 EUR/0.5 l, 4.7 V/V%): 6/10.
Flensburger Pilsener (GER, 0.89 EUR/0.33 l, ): 7.5/10.
Heidelberger Pils (GER, 0.49 EUR/0.5 l, 4.7 V/V%): 7.5/10.
Holsten Pilsener (GER, 0.59 EUR/0.568 l, 4.8 V/V%): 7/10, of course much better than the Holsten in Hungary. Moreover, they tried to give a larger discount than Borsodi, offering "13.5% GRATIS" in a can.
Engel Kicker (GER, 0.69 EUR/0.5 l, 5.6 V/V%): 2/10. Perhaps it's a speciality, but not for my taste. Strong, very strange, very sweet aroma, I never felt anything like that. But I didn't have to give up, and drank it all, so it deserves 2 points.
Kaiserdom (GER, 0.99 EUR/1 l, 4.7 V/V%): 7/10. The 1 l can looks very nice!
Karlskrone Gold (BEL, 0.29 EUR/0.5 l, 4.9 V/V%): 4/10. A competitor for Grafenwalder, from ALDI. But they should not play in the same division... Karlskrone is tasteless and water-like.

Two newbies (?), don't ask how I did it during such a strict "cholecysta-friendly" diet. I forgot the exact alcohol content and the price, so it was a mindless sampling.

Karlovacko (CRO, ~5% alcohol content): average festival beer, it deserves 6/10.
Egger (AUT, ~5%): same category, slightly worse than the former one. Mark: 5/10.

Corsendonk Agnus Triple (BEL, 7.5 % alcohol, 699 HUF/0.33 l): if I take it as a beer from anywhere - quite good. If I add that it's a Belgian one... well, only mediorce.

Crabbies Ginger Beer (ENG, 4% alcohol, 599 HUF/0.33 l): very tasteful, I loved it - but it's not a beer at all. If somebody says I drink concentrated Canada Dry, I would believe it. No evaluation.

Estrella Damm Daura glutene-free beer (ESP, 5.4 % alcohol content, 599 HUF/0.33 l): maybe I've lost my interest in beer testing. This one seemed to be an unwanted, bitter exercise to solve. It looks and tastes like an average beer, but still, it was really exhausting to drink - I guess it would be the same now with any other beers. My rating would not be realistic at all.

I guess the other end is Akoss Poo.

My list:

~600 l beer (~30000 ccm alcohol)
~200 l wine (70% red, 30% white; ~25000 ccm)
~25 l vermuth type drinks (martini, cherry, fruit liqeours, etc.; ~4000 ccm)
~15 l pálinka (~7500 ccm)
~ 15 l champagne (~1800 ccm)
~ 4 l Hubertus (something like Jägermeister, just better, at least for me; ~1500 ccm)
~ 3 l tequila (~1200 ccm)
~ 2 l other hard drinks (~800 ccm)
~ 2 l vodka (~800 ccm)
~ 2 l Becherovka (Friker can tell more about it, it's a delicious liqeuor with herbs - too bad I can't stand even the smell of it since that awful drunk night in 2008...; ~800 ccm)
~ 2 l rum (any kind of, except the baking version :D; ~1000 ccm)
~ 1.5 l whisky (~600 ccm)
~ 1 l cognac (~400 ccm)
~ 0.2 l absinth (~150 ccm)
exactly 0.2 l "sütörum" (rum for baking, kind of shame :D; 50 ccm), 0.2 l gin (terrible; 75 ccm)

SUM: ~75000 ccm pure alcohol (~60 kg; two more years and it will reach my body weight)

~200 pieces of alcoholic bonbons
swallowed Listerine 3 times by accident :D

Did I miss something?

Never tried but I want to: fernet, ouzo

Edit: 2013 seems to be quite a sober year so far (~400 ccm alcohol, no beer). What's more, this is my 26th alcohol free day in a row.

Komeuppance: as we can see, you like spirits very much. What about beer?
I do like beer, very much... but not as much as the spirits.  Both have their proper applications lol.

I prefer Rainier Beer, named after one of the big mountains here in the NorthWest US.  It's not sold very widely so there is always the allure of finding it, with it's outdated advertising still printed on the can (Which after drinking quite a few I like to quote to my amusement): "100% All Aluminum Recyclable Can"  "Made with Yakima Valley Hops"!!
(http://justbeer.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/rainier.gif)
It's a very cheap beer, one of the factors that attracts me to it, but it also tastes great with a good amount of flavor, but not so heavy... allowing to me to drink non stop.

When going on an excursion, we make sure to stock up very well as it's likely outside of the normal distribution range.  This an example of one of those trips, Hells Canyon Oregon (Almost 2500 meters deep, deeper than the Grand Canyon), we brought 90 cans of Rainier... just for me.

I'll update about some of my other favorites next time, I'm getting thirsty!!

Stroh 80 (rum speciality from Austria, 80% alcohol content): the most concentrated spirit I have ever tried. When you open the bottle, you can see the released alcohol vapor... :D Strange, but the taste is not alcoholic (it's rather a sweet and very delicious punch) - but in the next second it starts to burn you like hell. I liked it very much, but it's not recommended to drink it in pure form just for getting drunk - you should rather dilute it with coke.

~ 3 l tequila (~1200 ccm)
~ 2 l other hard drinks (~800 ccm)

~ 0.2 l absinth (~150 ccm)
exactly 0.2 l "sütörum" (rum for baking, kind of shame :D; 50 ccm), 0.2 l gin (terrible; 75 ccm)

SUM: ~75000 ccm pure alcohol (~60 kg; two more years and it will reach my body weight)

Neither I'm too far from my body weight, even without swallowing a single ccm of Listerine! (For me it seems impossible... it would come back in a second, together with the whole content of my stomach.)

I've made an Excel table and estimated my consumption in each year from 2000. (Well, it should be also taken with an error margin of +/- 50%.) The overall sum really surprised me.

~806 l beer (~40300 ccm alcohol)
~78.5 l wine (~9420 ccm)
~2.5 l champagne (~300 ccm)
~7.7 l pálinka (~3465 ccm)
~8.1 l bitter (Unicum, Hubertus, Becherovka, Jäger, etc.; ~3240 ccm)
~3.3 l other spirits (mostly vodka, cognac and whisky; ~1320 ccm)
+non-significant amount from alcoholic desserts and gayish drinks (vermouth, liqueur)

SUM: ~58000 ccm (ca. 46 kg).

As you can see, most of it comes from beer... The surprisingly large amount is resulted by my habit of finishing university workdays with a beer in the dormitory (between 2003-2007). Doing this 3 times a week (not counting the summer), I'm already at 60 l/year without any special events, additional beers (because one beer is not a beer), etc.

It has nothing to do with the Czech Budweiser. Just their names are the same. Btw different taste from European beers.

I tried a "mead" beverage earlier today, which is supposed to be one of the earliest style of fermented drinks.  A "honey wine".  I'd been drinking all day, changing the transmission on my Mitsubishi Starion, and took a break at the bar.  Even though I was in the drinking mood, I probably wouldn't order a mead drink again.

At the moment, I'm drinking...
Ringnes Gold 6.5% (NOR) 55 NOK*/6x0.33 l 5.5/10

I wonder if the alcohol content is true. Although this beer doesn't have a really characteristic aroma, I don't feel any taste of alcohol. (It was obvious in Borsodi Bivaly, having the same alcohol content.)

*: Price in the duty-free shop of the airport. In the liquor store, it is sold for 32 NOK/0.33 l (thanks to alcohol tax).

The "worst" one:

Tongerlo Blonde (BEL, 6.5% alcohol, tapped version, n/a Euro/0.5 l): not really characteristic, but refreshing drink, without any alcoholic taste. In Hungary, it would be a really nice light beer - in Belgium, well... there are several better brands to try. However, it was still worth to taste, especially as a cover drink after a huge beef steak. Mark: 7/10

St. Feuillien Bruin (BEL, 8.5% alcohol, ~1.5 EUR/0.33 l): another noble drink with the well-known Belgian backtaste (sometimes it reminds me a bit on rose tea). Alcohol content is not suppressed in taste, however it's not too alcoholic either. It deserves 9 pts from 10, not less. :)

Bad day: XY fucked up my diet (both gluten and lactose, well-done), again. Then I broke a mercury-filled thermometer, got a paddywhack and ruined a door in our flat. Then an old dickhole made me mad in the supermarket (he thought his age is enough to let him overtake me in the queue). I had no choice: sudden pálinka+beer shot (Miller Genuine). skid OFF, WORLD!

Bernard Lager (CZE, 29.50 NOK/0.5 l, 4.5% V/V): 7/10. It is obviously a quality beer with rich aromas, however it was too bitter for my taste (at least in the end of a warm summer day). Quite similar to Ottakringer (AUT).

Brugge Tripel (BEL, 8.7% alcohol, 17.8° extract content, 1.39 EUR/0.33 l): just like the place of brewery, it's wonderful. The bottle's design didn't really impress me, but the first gulp... ouch... one of the best Belgian beers. The color, the flavor, the scent, the well-balanced alcoholic effect... I couldn't really find a weak point. A new member in CTG's "Beer Hall of Fame". Mark: 9.5/10

There wasn't a wide selection of beers in Portugal, and we rather tasted wine, so only two newbies from there:

Super Bock (POR, 5.2% V/V): 4/10
Sagres (POR, 5.0% V/V): 5.5/10

Don't believe the name of Super Bock. It's nothing but a weak, quite tasteless lager.

Btw, I'll post more evaluations soon, as I'm invited for a tasting of Christmas beers (juleøl) for tomorrow. This is the only part of the year when Norwegian breweries make something really good - in a style similar to the Czech/Slovak dark beers.

Christmas beer tasting: completed. Unfortunately, the quality was disappointing (with a few exceptions). I was not surprised when I woke up with a terrible headache this morning, although the amount of alcohol was not huge. I started with 0.5 l beer, then had a dinner, tasted ca. 13x0.15 l beer (but didn't drink the two most disgusting ones), and finished the evening with a shot (0.05 l) of home-made pálinka.

Let's see the scores!

CB Juleøl (NOR) 3/10
Hansa Julebrygg (NOR) 6/10
Tuborg Juleøl (NOR) 4.5/10
Aass Juleøl (NOR) 2/10
Ægir Juleøl (NOR) 2.5/10
Frydenlund Juleøl (NOR) 5/10
Ringnes Juleøl (NOR) 3/10
Lervig Juleøl (NOR) 7.5/10
Rogaland Juleøl (NOR) 3.5/10
Hansa Juleøl (NOR) 4/10
Ø Julesnadder (NOR) 1/10
Delirium Christmas (BEL, 10.0% V/V) 1/10
Gauloise Christmas (BEL, 8.1% V/V) 9/10

All Norwegian beers had alcohol content of about 4.5-5.0% V/V. The opinion of other participants (colleagues and their friends, from different European countries) was quite similar to mine: this year's Christmas beers are mostly crappy...

Interesting list concept. The first foreign town where I got drunk for real was Florence in 2003. Then, that same year, I got boozed-up in Brussels. In 2004, I went for a drinking-fest in Barcelona and Budapest, and got ker-plunked in Kazincbarcika. In 2007 I got schmashed in Scheesel and I got bevvyed in Beijing and shitfaced in Xi'an. In 2008 I got legless in London twice and then I got blasted again in Budapest. In 2009 I got toasted in Tokyo and in 2010 I got bombed in Berlin. 2011 had me hammered in Hong Kong and mashed in Malmö.

Well, due to very favorable prices in the Spar supermarkets (and due to the fact that there are no more Iron Maiden concert tickets available, and I don't have one), I decided to try some special Belgian beers.

Three bottles are in front of me:

Corsendonk (BEL, 559 HUF/0.33 l, alc. 7.5%, extr. 15.4%)
Kasteel Rouge (BEL, 559 HUF/0.33l, alc. 8.0%, extr. % no data)
Duvel (BEL, 559 HUN/0.33l, alc. 8.5%, extr. % no data)

Well, I started with the Corsendonk Agnus Tripel. Even during the first few sips, I felt that I stepped to a different level of beer quality. Somehow it feelt like a bit of the yeastish taste of the wheat beers, though it was more original and smooth. Even during the last sips I felt the awesome feeling of the quality and the taste. 10/10.

Duvel was the following beer test. The first taste was very good, quite similar to Corsendonk Agnus Tripel, only a little bit less characteristic. But this was not long-lasting enough. The quality taste remained, I enjoyed the beer till the last drop of it, but it is a more mainstream, less characteristic and less tasty beer related to Corsendonk. 8/10

Now let's taste Kasteel Rouge.

Top beers:

10: Corsendonk Agnus Tripel, Pilsner Urquell
9.5: Zlaty Bazant (12 extract %, sold in Slovakia), Paulaner white beer, Löwenweisse
9: Radeberger, Kelt (12 extract %, sold in Slovakia)

Oh my God, the first kriek "beer" of my life! I won't rate it because it's really far from beerish taste with the added cherry, but I have to say it's an excellent and tasteful (sweet) - maybe a bit femalish - drink (imaginary score: 10/10, don't add it to the database). Oh and what's that exactly? Kasteel Rouge (BEL, 8% alcohol, 579 HUF/ 0.33 l). I suggest it for Diesel Still Drinking Joe! ;)

Btw, I've re-tested some "basic" Hungarian beers while being at home in December & April. Sadly enough, the quality of some previous favourites decreased in the last few years. Now I wouldn't rate Soproni and Dreher higher than 4.5/10. Borsodi's quality is stable, so it has overtaken the previous two - with 6/10 points. (And we should not forget the famous erection factor!) Even the "quality brand" of Soproni, called Soproni 1895 is behind Borsodi now (5.5/10 points).

Other re-tests:

Kaiser (brewed in HUN, licence from AUT): 4/10 - also seems to be on a slope...
Heineken (brewed in HUN, licence from NED): 7.5/10
Löwenbrau (brewed in HUN, licence from GER): 4/10 - it was always crappy
Pilsner Urquell (CZE): 7/10

I have to tell that Irsai Olivér (last spirit in this video) is quite a weak pálinka with ~40-45% alcohol content. A real pálinka starts over 50%...

Bulgarian beer test:

Zagorka: 6.5/10
Stolichno (wheat beer): 6/10
Pirinsko: 5.5/10
Burgasko: 5.5/10
Kamenitza: 5/10
Shumensko: 4/10

They were cheap and rather mediocre, but Zagorka is a full-taste quality beer (Stolichno is their product, too, but it had a too clear taste for a wheat beer).
Pirinsko and Burgasko are relatively low alcohol content freshening summer beers.
Kamenitza is sweet but not bad.
Shumensko is something like Arany Ászok in Hungary.

Bulgarian wines are not less expensive than in Hungary, but they are good.

Their national drink, rakija (Peshterska brand rakija, 40%) is something like a grape pálinka, quite good and tasty, worthy to try.

Some Czech beers are in the Lidl supermarkets! I tested three of them:

Démon Polotmavy' Speciál Chlumec - semi-dark beer, not my kind, probably the worst Czech beer I've ever tasted, 3/10
Rychtár'- that is my kind of a Czechoslovak type of beer, 7/10 (highly recommended!)

We might use a different classification system.

I think the distribution of our given marks doesn't differ to a significant extent. Our numeric rating scale probably tells the same.

I think the difference is between rating words. And maybe even less than you thought. Because, after a self-analysis of my rating system (numeric and labelled scale), I found that saying 'good' or 'mediocre' or 'recommended' is rather the function of the price/value ratio than the unbiased, independent mark. I would also say '7' is good, but if the beer is relatively cheap - like it was for my Czech beers, 189 HUF/0.5l each - I would say 'good' even if the beer's rating is only 6.

And Rychtár' (r'=Czech rzh letter, not displayed correctly here) is a strong 7 and still only 189 HUF, I can recommend it to everyone who finds this beer. But if the beer costs 350 HUF for example, at least a strong 8 is needed to call it a 'highly recommended' beer.

Hey, hey, hey!!! I've just found this abstract: DOI: 10.1016/j.foodchem.2011.06.021

According to the article, gluten level of beer is a lot lower than I thought. For comparison: bread contains 20,000-100,000 ppm (part per million) gluten; a really thick wheat beer is around 400 ppm, light beers contain only 20-50 ppm, while <20 ppm is already considered as "gluten free" in food industry. Shall I drink beer again instead of cider - which is even more fattening with its' high sugar content? :D

OFF:

I've just read an article reporting that non-celiac gluten intolerance has been conclusively shown not to exist in a rigorous placebo study.

My case is quite a strange one - probably many of my intolerances are cross-reactions. In many cases, lactose and gluten intolerance occur together, although you acquired/inherited only one of them - if so, the other one should disappear when your bowels are regenerated during the strict diet.

Two years ago I had a sudden weight loss accompanied with serious bowel and liver symptoms.
1, Two independent lab tests proved that I have mediorce to severe level IgG-mediated intolerance to differents foods, including all the cereals with gluten content (wheat, rye, oat, barley), eggs, nuts, some fruits, etc. Lactose intolerance was not detectable with this test - however, hydrogen exhalation test could prove it later. Severe eosinophilia was also recognized (sometimes it shows an extreme level, 6-8 times to normal) - caused by an immunological reaction of my body.
2, In contrary, the classic celiac disease test (IgA-specific) gave a negative result.
3, According to the stomach and intestinal biopsy results, I had (and probably still have) a chronic inflammation in my gastrointestinal tract.
4, When I started the "everything"-free diet, the stomach symptoms became more tolerable (less pain and cramp, moderate inflation), my ingestion became more effective / predictable and the weight loss stopped, too. But when I break the rules (e.g. with a panino or a shitty Alpenmilch chocolate), the symptoms - like the strong pain and lack of "ZCT149" for 3-5 days - re-appear.

I'm pretty sure it's not celiac disease, maybe another kind of malnutrition problem (or just the long-term response of my body to the chemicals, failed pharmaceutical ingredient candidates I worked with).

For non-Hungarians: it's a fuckin' cheap artificial "wine" in 2 l plastic bottles (~1-1.5 EUR), with incredibly terrible taste.

Title: Re: Beer
Post by: CTG on February 10, 2015, 07:44:05 PM
Stari Irish Red (HUN, 6% alcohol, 749 HUF/0.33 l): take 0.27 l Dreher Bak (~130 HUF), dilute it with 0.06 l water, burp in the bottle ---> you will get a veeeeeeery special & expensive beer. Luckily I like Dreher Bak very much. But this one... well... waste of money. Mark: it would deserve 7 pts (Dreher Bak: 8.5), but considering the un-unique taste, the crappy bottle and the outrageous price, I give one point penalty, so it's only 6 pts.

Snow is brewed in Lanzhou. I know, I was once invited for a factory visit. As far I know two reasons why it is the most popular beer:

- It is brewed in an area with heavier beer drinking habits than the rest of China (ok, nothing beats the city of Qingdao of course)
- It is MUCH cheaper than Qingdao and Yanjing, and for the migrant working class (the beer drinking segment) price matters a lot.

I still don't like beer, but my favourite Chinese beer name is Reeb. Because it is beer spelt backwards!

Great, thanks for clarifying this! I'll try it next time I go to China.

Not a lot of commodities have as catchy a name as beer. I tried to find other business areas in which you could use the same naming tactic, but couldn't find any - except that of course "Rac" isn't such a bad name for a car.

Gambrinus Originál (CZE) 10°, 4.3%, around 17-20 CZK in shops or supermarkets (0.5l can or bottle) - this is the most popular beer in the Czech republic, and I can understand why... good, bitter, typical Czech type beer, nothing wrong with it - 7/10

Gambrinus Excelent (CZE) 11°, 4.7%, around 18-20 CZK in shops or rather in supermarkets (0.5l can) - well, this time the higher extract content did not mean a better or more unique taste... though it can be felt that this beer is a bit stronger (as for the alcohol content at least) - 7/10

Gambrinus nepasterizovaný (CZE), ?, ?, draught in a Czech pub for 28 CZK (0.5l mug) - though I think it is a bit watery (draught beer), it had a clearly good taste, I enjoyed its every sip in the pub while we were watching an ice hockey game - 6.5/10

Kozel Medium / Sve'tlý Ležák (CZE) 11°, 4.6%, around 18-22 CZK in Czech shops or supermarkets (0.5l bottle), well, I know this beer well from Slovakia, this is still a very good one - 8/10

Kozel (CZE), 11°, 4.6%, draught in a Czech pub for 29 CZK (0.5l mug) - well, this beer is not as good when it's draught (?watered) when it is in a can or in a bottle... but a reasonable price beer in a quality Czech pub near our accomodation, where we were watching the CZE-SWE ice hockey WCH match (SWE won 6-5 after shootout) - 5.5/10

Samson (CZE), ?°, 4.7%, draught in the Wenceslas Square (Václavské náme'stí) for 40 CZK (0.5l, plastic glass)... it was good after a good Czech sausage there (60 or 70 CZK for a 200-250 g piece of grilled spicy sausages + a baguette), but nothing special... wasn't too watery, but wasn't too tasty either - 5/10

Primátor Polotmavý (CZE) 13°, 5.5%, bought in a Czech shop for ~24 CZK, this is a semi-dark beer (somewhere I've read that this is rather a red beer)... well, for me, it is a bit too strong, concentrated beer where the extract content of the beer and the alcohol fades the bitter taste of the hop. Though, my girlfriend liked it very much. For me - 5.5/10 (though the quality of the beer can be felt in its taste)

Staropramen Sve'tlý (Pale) (CZE), 10°, 4.0%, bought in a Czech small shop for ~17 CZK, well, this beer is much much weaker than the 12° (Ležák, Premium Lager)... actually, they have nothing to do with each other... this beer is rather average and dilute, watery - 4.5/10

Zlatopramen (CZE) 11°, 4.9%, bought in a Czech small shop for 35 CZK (2l bottle) - one of the best price/value ratio beers I've ever tasted... though seeing the price of this beer in other shops, I'm always sure that this beer was somehow mis-priced in this shops (where btw the shop assistants were Chinese)... good bitter taste and aroma, nothing wrong with it, typical Czech beer - 7.5/10

Svijany (CZE) Svijanský Máz 11°, 4.8%, bought in a Czech supermarket for 15-18 CZK (0.5l bottle) - average beer, a little bit sweeter than most of the Czech beers... can be good when chilled when you are thristy, but nothing special - 5.5/10

Pilsner Urquell (CZE) 12°, 4.4%, bought in a Czech Tesco for 26-27 CZK (0.5l bottle) - we can be relieved, it is exactly the same as it is sold in Hungary (a real import beer here, not a license beer or a fake import beer) - still 10/10, basic beer for me

Brought home to be tasted:
Rychtár' (CZE) 12°, 5.0%, bought in a Czech supermarket for 18-21 CZK (0.5l bottle)
Lobkowicz (CZE) 12°, 4.7%, bought in a Czech supermarket for 33 CZK (0.5l bottle)
Primátor Premium 12°, 5.0%, bought in a Czech supermarket for 18-21 CZK (0.5l bottle)

1 CZK = 10.97 HUF

My beer Excel table is updated now. Mostly Romanian, Slovakian and Czech beers were added to the list.

Consideration should be given to:

Primátor Premium (12o) 8.5 pts (CZE) 5.0% - a beer from a brewery not owned by a multinational company. Excellent taste. Feels like a beer which I haven't drunk for at least 8-10 years... feels like a beer which is missing from the shelves of the supermarkets. Because a little bit most of the beers tastes a little bit the same. Beer from a multinational beer company. Most of the breweries are owned by them. Not this one. For me, now Primátor Premium has an unique taste. Recommended for everyone who travels to the Czech Republic.

Neumarkt 1.5 pts (ROM) 5.2% - awful beer with a very strange taste which appears in my month after swallowing the beer. Recommended for no-one who travels to Romania. Worst beer I've drunk recently. Close to 1.0 pts.

Interesting world map: the most popular beer brand for each country. Not surprisingly, in Hungary it is the famous Borsodi. :)
http://vinepair.com/features/external/beer-world-map-3000-full-web.jpg

The ones which I've already tasted: Borsodi (HUN), Tuborg (DEN), Zlaty Bazant (SVK), Gambrinus (CZE), Lasko (SLO), Heineken (NED), Kronenbourg (FRA), Guinness (IRL), Birra Morretti (ITA),  Budweiser (made in USA, most popular in CAN), Corona (MEX), Chang (THA), Ozujsko (CRO), Kamenitza (BUL), Efes Pilsen (TUR), Jelen (SRB).

The German looks to be Oettinger, which sounds surprising.

I wonder about the favorite beers in Montenegro and Romania, because I'm sure that I've already tasted them. The Bosnian and the Albanian ones maybe also.

Update:
I've tasted since my previous post:
Mythos/GRE
Stiegl/AUT
Cruzcampo/ESP
Sagres/POR
Kingfisher/IND
Feldschlößchen/GER, most popular in Switzerland
Ringnes/NOR
Tyskie/POL
Carling/GBR
Oettinger/GER
Pripps Blå/SWE (after visiting Sweden, I managed to find out the brand name)

+1 Asahi/JPN, though I tasted only a version brewed in Italy (Japanese license)

The UK has been swept by the "craft beer" trend, which means every pub has different beers on rotation. That's great, some are really interesting and tasty, but then they are gone and impossible to find :|

In Sweden, the 'staple' beers are rather mediocre or  bit worse. From the 'cheaper' cathegory (still expensive for Hungarian pockets), Mariestad's Dunkel was the best. Pripps Blå was below average.

On the other hand, Oppigård's craft beers were surprisingly good and very tasty. They simply (New Sweden IPA, Amarillo APA, Indian Tribute) ashamed the craft beers of traditional beer-producing countries like Slovakia, Czechia, Germany and maybe even Belgium. They are expensive (around 2.5 EUR/0.33 l) but so fvcking great!

Faxe 10% (DEN, 10% alcohol, 1499 HUF/1 l): another shitty extra strong beer. Tastes like a cheap festival beer, tuned with toxic organic solvents and some additional alcohol. At least it kills fast. Mark: 2.5/10.

Well, when I was in California in 2013, I tasted Corona beer, I gave it a 5.5 mark.

I tasted Desperados this year, well, it is not really a beer, I found it drinkable but not good. Not my taste.

When I was in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 2016, I tasted a drink very much like Desperados. Its name was Bandido (Cerveza con Tequila). It was a little bit better than Desperados. I drank it among the sand dunes in the warm December wind.

Well I must agree. Maybe we don't have Corona beer, but yes, we have Corona sugar, Corona box of matches, Corona Winehouse in Eger... I saw Italians listening to their 90s disco star, Corona, on the balcony, during their quarantine. Btw there is Corona Borealis and Corona Australis on the sky... Poor Czechs, Norwegians and Swedish, they must pay with corona (koruna, krone etc.) every day... and so on... It is so damned outdated to say the least...

Guinness Hop House 13 Lager (IRL, 5%, 519 HUF/0.44 l): generally I really hate British (and Irish) beer. The classic Guinness and Kilkenny just sucks. However, this one seems to be something different. It tastes like a strong beer, with quite a pleasant balance of sweetness/bitterness. Excellent drink for an early summer evening. I was really shocked. Mark: 8/10.
