Beer&Whiskey Festival 43 beers and some pictures :D


At the Beer&Whiskey Festival last Friday I tasted 43 kinds of beer in 7 hours!!!
Not bad at all!!!

 - I am listing them here with their links and my grade. (just scroll down) -

I am very satisfied with the number!!!
(although I could have tasted a few more if I didn’t have wine with my lunch - IDIOT).










this was my favorite booth ... The Americans!!!



No I did not get drunk. As I said I tasted the beers, I didn’t drink 43 bottles of them (this clarification is so unnecessary but you never know what your readers are thinking… )




 

I could copy here all my notes and make full reviews of each and every one of them but it would take forever and so I leave you with numbers and some comments. Although I must say I am very tough with grading. Anything over 6 is VERY good!!! Anything over 8 is mind-blowing and 9 is the ultimate I can usually give. 10 must be the nectar of Gods. The under 5 category though is just unimpressive.


NOTE:I have to say here that the evaluation is my personal opinion ONLY!!!
I prefer bitter beers and porter.
My grading has nothing to do with the
Beeradvocate’s or ratebeer’s grading, even when it matches.
Their grades are a result of many peoples voting (this clarification is for … Justin Case …)


Yes the pictures are terrible I know but, just to document some features of the event, I brought my old compact-battery-starving camera, so I took a few dark and grainy pictures here and there.





Oh and another NOTE, some beers being Swedish or Danish and/or some new brews, it is hard to find sites in English. Sorry about that.
