Our little beer-tasting club has been back in action, and as the non beer drinker in the group I have been busy noting the details in the bottles and writing up the resulting reviews.
Our group do taste several beers in an evening but I’m writing them up as separate posts so that each beer gets it’s own personal review and page.

Himself: ” a little bit bitter side, nice and full think it’s dutch or danish, Rating =8“
Andrew: ” I really quite like this, Rating = 8“
Friedel: ” I hate it, it tastes like aspirin, Rating = 2″
Tamara: ” Undrinkable, Friedel why are you giving to 2 points?”
Evan: “Definitively what beer should be like, proper beer… might have wanted to give more, Rating =9″
Li: ” I like it, it’s not what I’d usually drink and it needs food to stand up next to it like the salsa chili, this has a very overpowering flavour, needs bold food: lots flavor, lots of spice, Rating = 5″
Erik: “It’s carbonated, so first I gave it a 1, after a while I decided that although it’s not style I like , it’s good beer so I changed my rating: Rating= 6″
Alicia: ” I don’t know how you can not like this one, It’s my favourite so far and I don’t like dark beers that much so this is surprising, a very complex flavour, Rating = 9″
Clearly, judging from the very wide variations in the reviews here if you prefer a very strong complex flavoured Porter, then Ramese Bier ‘Mamba Porter’ will suit your taste. On the other hand, if lighter porters are more your style, then this might the “aspirin” you thought you might need tomorrow.
