around the world in 80 beers episode 198: Knappstein Reserve Lager
Knappstein Reserve Lager

Pours a clear very pale yellow with a small/medium head that lasts for ages. lots of carbonation visible.

First sip: Whoa. I mean, mild malt and toffee sweetness, with quite a lot of fruit, almost grapey, flavours. Hops is mild but very long lasting and can be tasted from sip to long after the swallow. Medium mouth-feel with a nice carbonation tingle on the tongue.

If it weren't for the hops, I'd think this was a fizzy riesling. It is extremely drinkable and goes down very easily. This can be a problem - at 5.6% this can result in wobbly boots. A very yummy beer!

Hello again, friend, from the same hemisphere as you for a change! I'm glad to see some interruptions are still going strong on LJ. Seeing this post made me smile.

HELLO my friend! I hope you're not suffering too much culture shock. I haven't abandoned LJ like so many others. I mirror all my posts on Dreamwidth and quite a few of the comments are there, so you might not see them. But, as you said on one of your posts, LJ (and DW) are a better platform for long-form blogging with better formatting and image handling.

I'll be waiting for your journal updates. Take care, mate.
