Jessenhofke, 8% by Jessenhofke Brewery.
Update: Following this review, we were contacted by the producers of Jessenhofke. They invited us for a further tasting - respecting optimal beer tasting conditions.
An initiative I very much welcome. Perhaps sometimes we do not follow 'ideal' beer tasting rules. I can agree with that. Perhaps sometimes we just don't like a particular beer.
However I find it admirable that a beer producer takes the time to read and consider a blog review. And consequently makes an effort to understand the tasters point of view.
What is your feeling on such approach by producers?
Keep an eye on the updated review (sometimes in July 2008).

Germany v Ireland (Guiness) - Germany
Czecho v Poland - Czecho
Belgium v France - Belgium
England (London Pride) v Scotland (Deuchars IPA) - England
Germany v Czecho - Czecho
Belgium v England - Belgium

Where did the time go? Really! Last time I took part in The Session it was way back in December. And now, here we are, already at The Session 16. This time around, The Session is hosted by Geistbear Brewing Blog and it is all about beer festivals.
Now of course I could tell you all about the Belgian Beer Festival(s). Or you could look up my Google Calendar and see what is coming up next. BUT. We just got back from a long weekend in Prague. And guess what? Without us even as much as trying we were there during the very first Czech Beer Festival. Talk about coincidence!
And almost all the beers were served at all the stands. Which kind of (for me at least) made the whole beer festival/ discover brewers a little confusing. How come everyone was serving the same beer? Or did I get it all wrong.
Did we have fun? Of course we had fun. It was great to discover something a little different, and see the Czech Beer Festival at work. Then we made it all up for and went to the best ever beer pub in Prague. The Pivovarsky Klub. Absolutely fantastic!
Normal Belgian Beer blogging will resume tomorrow. Have a great weekend everyone.
