Hey you hosers! Today we're in Canada eh, drinking Moosehead Beer. It's brewed in St. John's New Brunswick, up here in the great white north eh, Canada that is. Yeah, this is a pretty good eh, especially since there's not a mouse in the bottle or anything. It may not taste as good as Elsinore beer, but it does have a nice crisp taste to it. Iron Chef said it was citrus-y, and I thought it was pretty decent after the skunk smell from the bottle goes away. That would make it like at least 5 on the beer scale eh.
Now gimme a beer you knob.

Today beer heads, we are in Puerto Rico drinking a beer whose name was derived from the same place as the Caribbean Islands. Early explorers found the island Carib (which is now called Grenada) filled with a native people that practiced a ritualistic form of cannibalism. As this was the first society discovered to partake in the eating (but not ingesting) of human flesh, the word cannibal was derived from the Carib word Kanbna meaning "person". Even though the Carib people still live in various parts of South America and the Caribbean Islands, the last known speakers of Island Carib died out in the 1920's.
Today, many people around the Caribbean Islands enjoy Carib beer. However, I am not particularly enjoying it. It's a little skunky smelling, very watery, and rather cheap tasting. Maybe this beer would taste better while sitting on a sandy beach or maybe it would compliment a heapin' helping of human flesh, but by itself, it's really not even a 4, so I will rate it a 3 on the beer scale.

Day 71 - The Good: Negra Modelo
A Beer with a dark amber color. Not overly sweet and heavy like some dark malty beers. It may have a faint hint of caramel in the flavor which I like. It's great taste proves that there are two types of beers in the world my friend, those that that you can totally dig and those that aren't Negra Modelo. I will rate this an 8.
Day 72 - The Bad: Tecate
I'm not too impressed with it. It's very watery and has a little bit of funny taste to it. It doesn't have enough flavor to cover a taste of metal, maybe of the equipment used to make it. I will rate this a 4 because it proves that there are two types of beer in the world my friend, those that taste like metal and those that are the next best thing to having a rope around your neck.
Day 73 - The Ugly: Pacifico
I started to pour it out because I thought it smelled a little moldy or something. But then I thought, hey I got to at least try a small sip just too say I tried it, and maybe the smell is just me. [two seconds after drinking] Oh my God this is nasty! Even though the mold smell was just my imagination, this is still horrible tasting beer. I rating it a 1 and pouring it out because it proves that there are two types of beer in this world my friend, those that don't taste very good and those that you would only drink at gun point.
Viva La Cerveza!

Today Beer Heads we find ourselves in Mexico drinking another of my favorite brands of beer, Dos Equis. According to the beer bottle history, this beer was crafted in 1897 to commemorate the XX Century. Iron Chef got this particular type of Dos Equis because she thought the Ambar would taste Oh-so-delicious. For the most part she was right. When it comes to Mexican Beer you can't go wrong with Dos Equis. It may not be the Hofbrau's Amber, but it's still a good quality, highly drinkable beer. I could try to describe something special about the flavor, but really, it's just an amber beer. I will rate this one 7 on the beer scale.
Viva La Cerveza!

That's right Beer Heads! 7 Beers in one blog post. I figured that since we are in the country of Ireland, that I would drink the beers Irish Style; i.e.-all at once.
It's an Irish Stout that originated in Cork Ireland, but is now brewed in Dublin. It's a malty beer that's not as heavy as Guinness, and has slight nutty quality at the end. Rating: 6
Guinness Extra Stout
From the famous St. James Gate in Dublin comes this beer that I guess is more of a stout than a stout, whatever that means. It's malty sweet, and real heavy. Iron Chef said it ain't Bushmills whisky, but it's the next best thing she has drank from Ireland. Rating: 7
The best thing to come from Ireland, and easily the best beer I drank when visiting London last year. I don't know how to describe it's flavor. I just know that I like it. I will have to admit that I was too anxious to take the time to pour it properly. I didn't get the right head on it. Nor did I put that cool little shamrock shape in the head. Rating: 9
They called it a lager, but it was very much like the stouts. I'm only gonna rate it a 5 because it was misleading.
Brewed in the Irish county of Kilkenny. (Oh my god! You Bastards) It's dark like a stout, but highly cabonated with some bitter hops like a lager. I like the dark amber color. I also like the mild hoppiness. I was starting to miss hops while drinking all of these Stouts. This has pretty good flavor, but there is something that about it that doesn't jive with me. rating: 6
It's roastey, toasty, malty and red. It's OK. Rating: 7
Maybe I'm drunk by now, but this one isn't much different from the Murphy's. Rating: 7
So now go drink like an Irishman with all of your Blogging friends.

To quote Iron Chef, "You get more cluck for your buck with Old Speckled Hen."
We like it. It isn't St. Peter's Golden, but it's pretty good. It's smooth, drinkable, light on malt, and a solid 7 on the beer scale.
Now go drink yourself a cluckin' bottle of Old Speckled Hen with your blogging friends.

As I opened the bottle, a light shown down from Heaven and cast a majestic glow over the pilsner glass I was pouring this beer into. I gazed up at the source of the light and there was St. Peter at the pearly gates looking down upon me. He was surrounded by Angels and they were singing a glorious chorus. And a peace fell across my world at that momment.
This may be my favorite beer from England. It's got some great hops, and some spice I can't quite make out. Iron Chef says it's a little nutty with it's full body. I lopve it and will rate it a 9.

Day 54 - Young's Oatmeal Stout
I was a little hesitant at first about this beer made from oatmeal, but then I figured what the heck. Oatmeal beer has gotta be a better breakfast than that lumpy white junk from Quaker. So I cracked open the bottle and took a big swig. It's thick, and malty. I can taste some bitter-y coffee flavor to it as well. Not just any coffee, but that nice roasted Juan Valdez stuff. which is good since coffee goes good with your morning oatmeal. If I was a big fan of these thick, dark beers I would probably rate it higher, but since I am not I will give it a 6.
Top of the morning to ya!
Day 55 -Old Peculiar
(I don't feel like getting a pic of the label. It's rather plain anyways.)
In Masham England they make beer that matches it's peculiar name. It's got a little bit of a fruit taste, yet it's also yeast-y. I can't think of much else to say, so I will just leave it at this.

Today Beer Heads we find ourselves in the Town of Stamford in the English county of Lincolnshire. It's a fine town. One where all the bloggers know how to create widgets that can count clicks from unique computers. And where they can blog about beer forever without growing tired of it. Which makes it one that I wish my town were more like. But, I imagine it's also one where people spontaneously combust. I say that because it's a town where beer spontaneously ferments.
Today's beer is good in an odd way. Odd, in that it tastes alot like Boone's Farm Strawberry Wine. And this is odd because the same flavor in wine form is considered rotgut, but in beer form, it tastes kind-of like those Belgian Ales with juice added to them. I will rate this a 6 on the beer scale.

Let us now summon up the Brewers of the Wychwood Brewery by chanting the magic incantation. It goes: Owa... Tannis... Syam. Repeat it faster Owa-Tannis-Syam. Owa-Tannis-Syam. Owa-Tannis-Syam. OwaTannisSyam. O-Wat-An-Ass-I-Am! lol
Well, OK maybe not, but at least we can drink some this fabulous blonde beer from Oxfordshire England. It has a nice citrus-y taste that pops in your mouth. Iron Chef said it was enticing and made her want to drink more than what we had available with our one bottle. It's a very clean and smooth beer that is better than your average yellow beer. I will rate this an 7 on the beer scale.
So now go drink a bloody good pint of stout with all your Humor-Blogs, and Hummorblogger friends.

Congratulations Beer Heads we've made it half way through the beer odyssey, and I'm going to commemorate it by adding a widget to the sidebar that everyone worldwide can click on to support B.R.E.W. and become apart of that inner circle too. Or at least I will add what I think will be the image. It's too late for me tonight to add the code behind it, but that will come tomorrow.
Today's beer is a really good one that's made from the water of the Otter River, and thankfully not from the Ohio River. It's got a nice mix of the hops and malt which is surprising because the name would suggest that it's full tilt on the hops side. Iron Chef said it's a bit yeasty, but then again she says that about alot of beer. It's a very drinkable beer and I will rate it an 7 on the beer scale.

Today beer heads we're still on Chiswell Street just north of the London Tower Bridge at the Oliver Cromwell era brewery, Fuller's. This is a great beer. Good malt, Great Hops, fine flavor. There may be some tea in this one which makes it perfect for a beer named "London Pride". There is a pleasant aroma from it, and a smooth as butter aftertaste to it. For the first time since Belgium, I can rate a beer 9 on the beer scale.
