Nice color and head! Looks very tasty :)

Is it me or does this really sound a bit dirty? ;)

i took two beers to friends' wedding in northumberland last weekend, a well established brown ale recipe (ala newcastle, since it was in the area thereof) and a kitchen sink porter, full 20L BM batch of each, in 500ml bottles (keg-conditioned, beergun-filled, so the unenlightened could safely suck it out of the bottle). it all vanished incredibly quickly. this is the brown, doing that cascading bubble thing. i pour hard on low-carbed beers!
and what the hell, a gratuitous shot of bamburgh castle on the north sea coast, with oilseed rape in the fore. these are both crappy point and shoot camera shots, one with inappropriate flash and the other over-zoomed, i know. deal with it in your own special way.

We call that very expensive and rewarding crop in Aus "Canola" but I do amaze at the term "Rape" :D

and a great looking beer :drink:

i hear ya! it's also canola in north america. anything would be better than rape, for example 'flasher'.
and in dutch it's called koolzaad, or 'cabbage seed', which is basically what it is but bred for seed rather than leaf, that name is a bit less racy than forced sex. kool also being carbon, (pronounced like 'coal'), so koolzuur is CO2 whereas zuurkool is sour (fermented) cabbage. why do i bring this up? one does wonder.

ehte- nice looking beer and label!
terviseks!
(google translate claims that that means cheers? ok enough language action for today)

Is that a 3D label? When you drink enough you start seeing the third dimension?

Tasty looking beer and nice label!

Here is my ANZAC AMBER that I brew every year around this time.
Firstly to commemorate Anzac Day in Aus and because the weather is generally starting to cool which makes the darker styles more attractive on the cooler nights.

A mighty fine brew and an excellent pour - I love that faucet !!
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Thank you for the compliment BrauTim.

Those faucets are "Ventmatics" which were to forward sealing type tap that were the pre cursor to the Perlick faucets.
I am lead to believe that Perlick bought the design after a court battle over patents etc.
In any case I have had them for years and even though I have tried other taps I keep coming back to them as my favourites.

This is my Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA clone. 2 weeks in the keg, no-chilled. It looks, smells, and tastes amazing. Definitely on my list to brew again!

Drinking my first brew on a Braumeister: Hopkind.
IMG_20140519_172014.jpg
I brewed this beer with the Braumeister of a Flemish forum member. It was a try-out of the Braumeister before spending my hard earned money on it. The recipe was designed from scratch (my first own recipe ever) as a birthday beer of my daughter. Although I didn't like it so much in the beginning it seems to have evolved pretty well in the bottle and now I'm sad that there only about 5 bottles left.

I have to dig up the recipe and post it in the recipes section.

:cheers:
Niels

PS: I'm drinking it from a plastic beer "glass" :p
