When the beer poured out?
Nice malt flavour with light sour end.

How’s the taste?
Fruity sweetness entry with nice carbonation. Light hops flavour with good malty finishing. 4.7% abv make this beer easy to drink and refreshing.

What’s the colour of the beer?
Crystal yellow.

Where to drink?
Drank it at Taps Beer Bar @ Jalan Nagasari, KL on draught.

My Opinion:
Very easy drinking beer like most lager. The sweetness entry is pleasing. Not much after taste, just a fast malt linger. For hot days and going for beer that are refreshing, this will be my choice. Cheers!


Beer Of Our Life

December 28, 2020 – 9:49 am 4 Comments

Since Beerbeer started, a lot of people ask me this question “What is my favourite beer?” I understand that the more you drink the harder it is to choose your favourite. The more you drink here is more towards the type and brands not the frequent or how much you drank.

I do have my favourites in certain time and place or even certain food. I love to drink beer according to my taste of that day. Of course to have my favourite beer is hard to find. My favourite type is still IPA (Indai Pale Ale). One of the hoppy, floral, bitter beer that many dislike. I quite like the Dogfish 60 min IPA, which I drank in Singapore Beerfest.

My favourite beer for this year is actually Pannepot from Belgium. The owner of BruxAle collect the beer and was kind enough to share it with Minjie and me. Something so surprisingly good that it make me happy the whole day for a reason I know that this is by far the best beer I tasted this year.

I guess some of the readers will go along my choices and try what ever I recommended. So far not many will like my favourite beer as it always come with hoppy and full flavour beer. I still wish we have better lager or pilsner in Malaysia. So far the commercial brands are not really giving any good taste to it. The simple after taste are not there. I actually think the Malaysian still have the mentality that darker is always stronger. Hope this will change one day.

As writing for Beerbeer have lead me to discover more types of beer. Beer of my life will keep changing. As I discover new type and new style to slowly sips to my mouth, eventually new favourite will come. Ale or lager who knows? But ale will be a better choice for now.

When the beer is served?
Not much aroma, just a hint of light citrus flavour.

How’s the taste?
The beer is very refreshing and easy to drink. The malt aroma is very strong but not much after taste. Not much carbonation can be spotted on the beer too. The beer is refreshing and very easy to drink. Is a half body beer.

What’s the colour?
Hazy Yellow

How’s the glass design?
Simple glassware

Where to get?
Drank it at Overtime, Sunway Giza.

My Opinion:
Very easy to drink, especially when the beer is cold. But a bit sad on the after taste, as the beer is a bit flat when it come to that. Aroma is nice but would like to drink it while it’s still cold, as it turns warm the beer will lost it’s character.

Who Let The Dogs Out?

So who let the dogs out? Must be Craft Brew, the only place in Malaysia you can find this Dogs flying around. Still don’t understand what I mean… Is the Flying Dog beers that CB is offering. I was invited over by Benjamin to come over to try the Flying Dog’s beer.

They have six range of Flying Dog offering in CB but because this beer are imported some are not available, most of the time is depends on the stock availability. Flying Dog Brewery is from USA, is another alternate taste from another continent.

We were chilling outside, as what can better then a chill beer in hand while the weather is like oven. This month is sure a good month for beer. Warm weather + beer = perfect pairing. So I invited 2 more friend to join me for the beer tasting. So I can see how the normal beer drinker felt about the beer.

For that night, we tasted four Flying Dog’s beer, which each have it’s own character. For each tasting we try not to taste so many beer at one shots as our tongue palate may confuse the taste, as beer always leave back after taste, so I think 4 is sufficient for the taste bud.

#1 The Flying Dog “In-Heat Wheat” Hefe Weizen Ale

When the cap is pop?
Some light floral with malty aroma.

How’s the taste?
The first gulp give a nice carbonation and fizzy to it’s body. The floral and malt give a lingering flavour in the mouth. Light bitter end with nice after taste lingering. With 4.7% ABV this beer is easy to drink.

Guest Verdict
Both give a combination of 9 out of 10, as the beer is easy to drink with the nice aroma.

#2 The Flying Dog “Doggie Style” Classic Pale Ale

When the cap is pop?
Nice sweet aroma that reminds me of lychee.

How’s the taste?
The beer has a nice carbonation, which give the fizzy in the tongue. Lychee aroma sweetness that linger with a hoppy bitter end. As it goes along the bitter actually stay and stick in the mouth. The beer come with 5.5% ABV.

Guest Verdict
Both give a combination of 6 out of 10, 1 like the bitter taste, the other hate it.

#3 The Flying Dog “Snake Dog IPA” Indian Pale Ale

When the cap is pop?
I like the floral aroma.

How’s the taste?
Have a good head in the beer, light fizzy with floral aroma flowing through as you drink the beer. It’s have the after bitter taste with some touch of floral end. Can spot some lychee sweetness in the beer. The beer come with 7.1% ABV but very easy and smooth to drink.

Guest Verdict
Both give a combination of 4 out of 10, both hate the beer. On the other hand, I like this beer very much, because this beer is balance with nice after taste.

#4 The Flying Dog “Old Scratch” Amber Lager

When the cap is pop?
Light Sweet Aroma

How’s the taste?
The beer is smooth, with 5.5% ABV the beer is easy to drink. Have some malty flavour, some fizziness to it. A bit diluted and not bitter. Have a slight end of salt brush off. The beer do have a nice head but not too strong in taste.

Guest Verdict
Both give a combination of 10 out of 10, both of them like this beer.

Of course everyone have different taste to like different beer. For me the beer is not bad and come with some nice taste, I prefer the IPA more then the rest as IPA have the balance that I like in beer. But majority drinker are so used to the lager beer like Tiger and Carlsberg, so Amber and Weizen from Flying Dog may suit them better.

Interesting of the bottle design is the art work. Not those typical emblem but very edgy art work. The bottle is quite typical looking beside from the art work.

Surprisingly the beer mostly are light body, I expected some to be more heavy body and volume. Overall the beer is quite easy to drink, with warm weather this beer will sure chill you down. If you drink too much, you may even act like a wild dog. But to make you fly, that is priceless.

Flying Dog is an imported brand that cater to those exclusive beer drinker that hunting for new stuff. I believe many have try, some like it some may not. This beer have it’s own characteristic to match with the food. Food pairing with beer will open up even more palate to taste. So next time you around Craft Brew drop by and do some beer pairing of your own. Cheers!

Steamboat is something goes very nicely with beer. Mostly eat during reunion, which bring everyone together. This meal is one of the best as it got all the ingredient from vegetable to seafood, and from beef to chicken, all this make steamboat even more balance diet, not too oily yet very delicious.

I prefer to have beer after the meal, as it bring out the taste. Because this meal is best to eat hot and with cold beer it doesn’t match that well. But if the beer is serve nearly end of the meal, then it will just goes wonderful. As you about to get bored with the food, beer will open up your appetite. Lager will be good as is not over power the soup. After the meal, the beer will sure help refresh you with all the food. And to end it, a good burp will show the satisfaction from you and the steamboat meal! Cheers!
