Another beer review


This time it's not about the Christmassy type of brew with flowers and cinnamon and spices and all the other ingredients that try to make you get into the Christmas groove, this is some good ole dark lager brewed and bottled in the Eastern Bloc country of the Czech Republic. It's called what else but "Brou Czech" and I must say that it is VERY good. Brou Czech is a traditional dark lager handmade the same way since 1872 using an origional 3 step method, (whatever that method is I don't know). It's reddish brown in color and it's rich hoppy and malty aroma leaves a very pleasant aftertaste. I could sit down and enjoy at least 3 of these in a row. Very nice beer.

Thanks goes out to Amanda Hassner for the beer. Amanda always gives Rene and Lynn very thoughtful gifts each cyclocross season. Technically these are Lynn's, but she said that it would be alright if I sampled one of them, after all, they are in MY refrigerator.

Cheers from the Czech Republic.

I think I've had this one at the Sokol Village Fish Fry.....that's where we are trying to get the City to work a deal with the Velodrome for a location...but I digress.

Wouldn't that be "our" refrigerator?
Ask Lynn and find out for sure.

LOL, you are good Jim, I especially like the part where you said "ask Lynn and find out for sure" That was funny...
