Thirsty Dog Siberian Night

November 30, 2020 – 10:30 am 1 Comment

Nose: chocolate, light roasted. Can smell light sweetness. When it’s warm up the smell very similar to chocolate milk. 

Taste: Entry with chocolate and coffee roasted. Got a nice subtle sweetness. The body quite thin for a 9.7% ABV. Leave a nice roasted after taste with roasted sour. Nosing it before drinking give a good hint of chocolate!

Personal opinion: is nicer went it warm up. The thin body hide away the robust flavour. The after taste is not strong. Too much roasted sour for me. Still a good imperial stout. 

Hangover Food: Nasi Lemak

Everybody got a different cure for Hangover. Some like a nice glass of Bloody Mary, some like to drink beer, some like to eat. My favourite is of course Nasi Lemak. 

Not sure how it works, each time I have a bad hangover, a pack or 2 Nasi Lemak will sure take away away headache and sober me up. What’s your favourite hangover cure? Care to share with me?

Pilsner Urquell

One of my all time favorite brews & the original pils- Pilsner Urquell!


Pours a fantastic amber slightly ruby hue colour with a creamy white head.
On the the nose the sweetness  and roast from the malts really comes through. Nice hop tang in there too!


As it goes down the first sip can be a little bitter and once ya mouth has automatically builds up a instant tolerance to the bitterness the second sip goes down smooth as! (The following sips and pints seem to go down as smooth as too!)

Nice bitterness from the Czech saaz and the perfectly roasted malts and soft water bring this masterpiece of the style together….the way a PROPER Pils was meant to be!

Food match would have to be a slow cooked pork/beef with a spicy coleslaw or a good ‘ol hot dog with heaps of hot mustard!

This beer really shines in a goblet style glass…straight from the bottle really doesn’t cut it!

Pilsner Urquell is a regular in my fridge and big props to the brewery changing back to brown bottles from green! A big plus especially when this tasty brew is exported far & wide from its homeland in the Czech Republic!

I can’t wait for the day that I get to knock on the brewery door of Pilsner Urquell and drink the unpasteurized version straight off the wooden barrel!


Drink Cheap or Drink Better

October 21, 2020 – 10:30 am Comments Off

This is an age old question? Drink cheap doesn’t mean you drink all the commercial beer, the value of beer are tag at the price of the quality of beer. It could be expensive to some at the same time cheap to others. 

Most people will prefer to drink cheap, as that’s the way to go. Hence the market will normally throw in promotion to lure most of the consumer. Hence commercial become the cheaper bargain on the market. 

Is drink better mean drink more expensive beer? Most of the time yes, but also the quality of the product and the value you pay for. Drinking better beer, is a choice. Drink better can be compare by paying RM30 for a pint of Guinness Draught or paying RM30 for a glass of Weird Beer Millionaire Stout. By value Weird Beer Millionaire stout (MS) is a better choice, but by volume Guinness Draught (GD) is a better choice. In the above example, GD is expensive but the MS is value for money. Can you said drink cheap for drinking MS? Is up to your own interpretation. 

Many people haven’t discover the choices of beer they can get in KL. Hence most people think all the beer taste the same. 

Is still a long way for Malaysian to discover craft beer as it is too expensive for most to even to try. Yet surprisingly, Malaysia craft beers is cheaper or similar to our neighbouring country but the highest in tax. 

Well, is always consumer choices on how they spend on drinking? Drink cheap or drink better? You decide! Cheers!
