    so, some of us are beer lovers, and I suggest, that we could send each other, best beer in their opinion, via mail, (or find it in ebay or smth, nad paste link, for other to order), and then post pictures with review of that particular beer :D

    So, here I go.

    Brenguļu alus.(Dark)

    Pros.
    Very sweet, delicious, easly drinkable. Natural.
    Cons.
    Expensive, hangovered as hell next morning. (because not filtred - as I said natural)

    10/10 in my case, If I could I would merry it, and have children with it.

    In pictures, me and some mates drinking it (1L - normal cup for Latvians) :D

    I change it via mail for your favorite beer :)

    Just tried a Rasberrie lagger. Not impressed. High gravity, not much else going for it. Over sweet... a fruity drink on crack! Afraid to even post a picture!!

    yeah, that would be problem, because it sure will require more than 30 days to send to Australia, and i dont think I have that much money, but when I have, I will

    Samuel Adams Cream Stout... love it, best beer I've ever had.

    It's not quite as thick as the name conjures up, in fact it's lighter than expected.
    A slight cream tone, smells like roasted/burnt malt, a note of bitterness... something in between authentic chocolate and over-brewed coffee, and they've kept the carbonation to a minimum. It however is not a beer I'd drink on a hot August afternoon, definitely for early Spring or late Fall.

    It is certainly the best American beer I have ever tried.

    De Halve Maan's Straffe Hendrik Tripel.

    It's just the best. It's a blond tripel with awesome hops and barely any sweetness. 9 degrees, 9 percent.

    here it is :)

    It'll be a rather expensive pint, but I think we can exchange addresses :)


    And now I have to think about how a beer is going to be sent in a glass container without changing into a myriad of glass splinters and a puddle of wetness...

    Guiness is ok. It tastes better in Europe tho than it does here for some odd reason.

    Monteith's make a good full bodied flavoured beer... for New Zealand beer.


    Do you drink it in slow-motion?

    Well, it took me an hour of packing - safely - and close to € 30, but beer is under way to Latvia.

    I made some pictures parcel, I'll post them later on :)

    He's getting a Helse Engel in a clasp bottle (or whatever it's called) and a Nieuw Ligt, which will kill you, but wins points for having a bottle cap sealed in paraffin. Brewed in 2009, though expected to ripen well until about 2014 ^^

    EDIT:

    Now with pics. ZOMG!
