When I think of Budweiser I think of the many commercials on TV and a boring, water down beer without much flavor. But not many people know that the Budweiser in America is NOT the original Budweiser beer. I came across this very interesting tidbit when I visited the Czech Republic. There is a town… READ MORE

This French beer tasted good!!!!! Produced by a small brewery, Les Brasseurs de Gayant since 1919. It pours a golden blonde color, not too bitter but with a rich full flavor taste. You should definitely give it a try! (You too GiantEyes!!!)

This is one of the oldest beers that is produced in Greece. It’s a typical blonde beer, not too sweet not too bitter, a perfect companion to junk food, street food, snacks, and Greek Meze. I love to drink this beer under the sun when I am supposed to be at work…Not! :p

I came across this beer in a supermarket in Germany. Pours a light golden color with a small white head. Has a malty, bready, hop like aroma. Taste was a bit of a sweet start and bitter, hoppy finish. Easy to drink, not too bitter a good thirst quencher. Give it a try!

A nice refreshing Pilsner. Golden color, a bit sweet with an mild bitter aftertaste. Has a light grassy hop smell to it and it was quite pleasant. I had this in Duderstadt Germany and it was quite refreshing.

Maybe I didn’t expect much from this beer, so I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. Honestly it was not a bad beer, I’ve had a lot worse! Easy to drink, light not bitter, a tiny bit sweet. Simple and nice. Long live Homer Simpson!

I drank this in Chongqing, China. Chongqing is very famous for their super spicy food. Maybe that is why this beer tastes like NOTHING. If I wanted water I would have asked for it. It kind of reminds me of a Miller Lite of some sorts, very watery, not much taste or aftertaste. Maybe it… READ MORE
