If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 2,000 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).
My email is ralphgant@sky.com.

Old photos of beer packs

I have been looking back at my older photos and found these photos that I took of packs of beers, they are all Belgian and all very good. I would think that they were all bought in Belgium as well.

Grimbergen, Blond from Belgium

Grimbergen, Blond, Belgium

6.7%, gold in colour with a thin head, sweet aroma and fruity malty taste, a really nice abbey beer, one of my favourites, plus two free beers in this pack.

Chimay, Chimay Red or Première from Belgium

Chimay, Chimay Red or Première, Belgium

7.0% deep red colour with a good head, fruity malt aroma, smooth fruity malt taste. It says Brune on the bottle but is known as Chimay Red

Van Honsebrouck, Kasteel Triple from Belgium

Van Honsebrouck, Kasteel Triple, Belgium

11% gold in colour with a good head, the aroma is sweet alcohol and fruitcake, taste is sweet fruits, I like this beer very much but only drink it occasionally, a bit too strong for everyday use.

Ayinger Beers

Had a couple of German beers from the same company recently.

Ayinger, Lager Hell from Germany

Ayinger, Lager Hell, Germany Ayinger, Lager Hell, Germany

4.9% gold in colour with a thin head, a pretty normal aroma and taste for a lager but it wasn't full of hops like many new beers.

Ayinger, Altbairisch Dunkel from Germany

Ayinger, Altbairisch Dunkel, Germany Ayinger, Altbairisch Dunkel, Germany

5.0% deep amber in colour with a nice head, malty aroma and the taste was a thin malt but nice.
