You have been in Bochum and havenít drunk a Moritz Fiege at all? Unbelievable!

Alt, Pils, Grunde Helles, Schwarz were not missed.



My point being why do you presume I didnít have them ?

Was just looking at your ratings and havenít seen anything else than Moritz Fiege Schwarz in your German beer ratings.

But am not looking for a public discussion, bp me if you have any issues ;-)

The second paragraph explains the first. If you canít tell the difference between lager and kolsch you may want to drop all the flavor bombs you drink in the US and re-learn how to taste beer - from the ground up instead of top down this time.



And if you couldnít tell the differences between the altbiers you had, your palate is quite suspect.




We just canít help ourselves from making it personal, can we?

I said similar, not the same. Thanks.

no issues - just wondered why you thought i didnt go to moritz f - it was the only reason we went to bochum!

112 ratings that weekend, back to work for 4 days, 30 or so rates last weekend - its a matter of finding the time to log the rates on here!

I went to Koln a few years back and could tell the difference between the Kolsch from different breweries. I look forward to going back next week and doing the same route. Sorry, I donít have a strong opinion on what the OP said either way. Iíll make up my own mind next week.

What can you expect when you make judgments on entire styles of beer with their own history and tradition? I know itís 2013, but these things matter to some people.

Reasonable discussion, I thought.
