So, now that people around me know that I’m keeping this list of worldly beers, they are actually bringing me some new ones. Case in point, Amsterdam Spring Bock was given to me by my brother after he and his wife tried it at a local festival. He thought that I should try it… I’m not sure what I ever did to him to deserve this though.
All I smelled was strong beer. Then I tried it and all I could taste was licorice, and I HATE licorice. After about 5 pulls, I was cringing a bit; it just wouldn’t get any better. I did have a grape before taking a sip and that helped, but then my teeth got fuzzy and it was all bad again.
It got to the point where I knew I wasn’t going to finish it so I asked Jackie if she wanted to try some. Being a real trooper, she said yes, and I proceeded to pour out what was left into two glasses.
This stuff looked like Pepsi! Serious! Even the head was the same beige foamy fizz Pepsi has. I couldn’t do it any more after that. I had two more sips then tossed about a 1/4 glass down the drain.
I appreciate the gesture and I hope for more… just no more bocks! Gah!
