First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, Summer 2011. The pour gives a hazy, dark, chestnut-mahogany body with glints of red around he edges. A thick, spongy head of beige froth lasts a good long while, leaving sticky splotches of lacing behind. The nose is of simple, bready, bronzed sugars with notes of caramel, toasted bread, and cocoa. There’s a touch of a nickely sort of mineral character amidst the dark, malty bread sugars. Flavors follow suit, bready and toasty, clearly featuring the dark malt with all of its toasted caramel edges, roast, and mildly bittersweet cocoa. A bit of floral hop character shows on the back end. The palate sports a moderate, easy going body that finishes with some crisp acidity and lively, cleaning carbonation. Again, like the other Strahov beers I tried, it’s not bad at all, but there’s just not a ton going on, and it falls well short of other regional brews.

Scopeys East Croydon tasting - Cheers Paul! A gusher! Hazy amber brown beer, small pale tan head. Light dry palate. Chocolate flavoured sour cardboard! Dry finish. Pretty grim - cardboard was overwhelming!

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at my East Croydon beer tasting. It pours dark brown, with ruby highlights and an off-white head. The nose is nut, caramel, sweaty sock and smoke. The taste is chocolate, tangy, cardboard, nut, light caramel and toast, with a light vinegar finish. A decent dunkel, but it is perhaps a bit on the thin side.

CanIHave4Beers (3676) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Pours a very deep ruby red color with a big head and good lace. The aroma is nutty with a nice chocolate note, but overall it seems very faint and almost neutral till you get your nose right in there. The flavor is fruity and the bitterness is wonderful. The beer has a remarkabally clean flavor and has nice mild chocolate notes with some coffee like roastiness.
