A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #660 – Weidmann – Weidmann Beer

Gift beer, gifted musician, cited with numbers and party gifts

Reinheitsgebot

500ml can of beer with an ABV of 4.8%, making it 144 calories a serve size, and 1.9 standard drink units.

For United Dutch Breweries  this is brewed at Hofbrauhaus Wolters in the style that is Pale Lager and they are in Breda, Netherlands

Resigned to this

Resigned to this

30 years ago, Pauli Weidmann from germany took matters into his own hands.

He loved living and enjoying life in the valleys’ cosy villages that lie in between the green and sometimes snow white mountains of southern germany.

Although he enjoyed this life with all its famous beer parties, he was critical of the beer that was served. Hence Pauli Weidmann decided to brew his own german specialties.

So, what could possibly go wrong? Well I know this is amongst the cheapest beers I’ve ever had let alone been gifted. But this is a beer drinking thing so nothing ventured.

Smells like a malt lager.

Pour is pale yellow but not translucent and there is a finger of head that settles to a smaller but persistent finger-nail of head.

Weidmann BeerAroma in the glass still malt lager.

It drinks like a plan euro-lager but this one seems a lot sweeter than expected, has some bitterness and bit of a bite but it’s not big or lingering.

A competent and drinkable quenching cold lager beer, which is a good thing.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 5 of its things from the thing. That’s all I have to say about this, it’s average, but far from the worst beer I’ve ever had.

The double dip review

  • Am I enjoying it? I am, I was thirsty.
  • Would I have another? I do have another can, it was cheap, very cheap.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? Well I was thirsty and this was cold and it hit the spot. It might be quite the thing after doing a thing that makes you thirsty, but I don’t think I’d stroll into a bar and order one.

Music for this : ” The Smoking Trees” and their album ” TST” on Spotify . The Smoking Trees are a duo of decidedly psychedelic disposition hailing from the West  of Los Angeles.

PALE LAGER

The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesn’t vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or you’ll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
