OK, run and hide, folks, I'm about to post to the journal.

Inspired by something I read on the big web thingy, I decided to log the different beers I drink during a year. Ideally, I'd also make some rudimentary tasting comments about them, but that's a lot of work and although ultimately satisfying, I don't like to have to think and analyse everything I drink with respect to smell, colour, bitterness, and sweetness during the different phases of drinking. And my palate is quite ordinary, I'm not a supertaster.

Here goes the first month:

Lindemans Apple
Traquair Bear Ale
Samuel Adams Black Lager
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
La Cidraie (yeah, ciders are included in this log)
Nøgne Ø God Påske
Slottskällans Imperial Stout
Timmermans Kriek
Newcastle Brown Ale
Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout
Old Speckled Hen
Pilsner Urquell 3.5% ABV
Pilsner Urquell 4.4% ABV
Primator Premium Dark
Pumpviken Påsköl
Rogue Santa's Private Reserve
Nørrebro Skärgaards Porter
Oppigårds Easter Ale
Oppigårds Spring Ale
Great Divide Titan IPA
Michigan Wheatland
Williams Black
Williams Gold
Young's Double Chocolate Stout

A few comments:

The easiest ones, the ones that just went down the throat and made me happy without being complex or challenging were the Michigan Wheatland and, surprisingly enough, the golden ale Williams Gold. That one was much better than I thought it would be. Timmerman's kriek is really boring; just sweetness and glue. Why on earth do Systembolaget not replace it with a decent kriek? And Oppigård continue to make yummy beers.
