Stopped by the Baltic Deli (a weekly stop, at least) in Andrews Square, Dorchester yesterday. They sell beer now, and it's all Polish, German, Ukranian, etc. THis is a very, very good thing, since I've never seen some of these beers anywhere else. Life is good.
I've tried two so far:
Obolon Beer's Krepkoe, from the Ukraine. Who knew they made beer in the Ukraine? Guess what- they don't. Not very well, anyway. It was beer, in that it was yellowish and carbonated, and had some hops in it. Very low quality, not very tasty. Worth a try, though, ust to have a Ukranian beer.
Neuzeller Klosterbrau's Golden Abbot, from Germany. The lable says "the taste of paradise". Not far wrong, there. Medium/light body, deep gold collor, low carbonation. Very malty, nice hoppy aftertaste. Good beer. Those German monks know what they're doing, I say.
As I have more, I'll post them. I got a Hevelius Kaper, which I know is good and got because I love it, and an Okocim Porter. The Okocim pilsner is quite good, so I wonder how they do with Porters.
