Strong Lagers

Alhambra Reserva 1925

Alhambra Reserva 1925
73The hops in the decent finish go some way towards redeeming this bright golden Spanish beer, but it's still too obviously strong for its own good.

Ann Street (Jersey & Tipsy Toad) Mary Ann Jubilee

Ann Street (Jersey & Tipsy Toad) Mary Ann Jubilee
56A bizarre, cloudy golden beer. Close inspection of the back label reveals that this is a diat pils, with much of the sugar fermented out. Not unpleasant but not entirely satisfying either.

Castle Brewery Eggenberg Samichlaus

82The classic Christmas beer from Austria, full-bodied and complex. Even just a thimbleful, sipped slowly like a port or sherry, keeps out the cold of winter.

Kronleins Stockholm Fine Festival

71This Swedish beer has picked up some prestigious awards, but, to my mind, the punch it packs is just too intrusive.

Peroni Padova Gran Riserva

77This golden lager certainly delivers in power and flavour but lacks the subtlety and elegance to be a class act.

Rodenbach/Palm Cobra King Cobra

Rodenbach/Palm Cobra King Cobra
76Not very complex, but a clean, light and quaffable beer for the strength, with a welcome freshness coming from the bottle conditioning.

United Breweries/Blossom Industries Kalyani Black Label

United Breweries/Blossom Industries Kalyani Black Label
69A rather scruffy bottle with a ragged bit of red foil around the neck suggesting cheapness. But, really, it's not that bad at all.

Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock

Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock
83A nourishing, ruby coloured beer, loaded with smooth,complementary flavours.
