Paulaner Brewery - Paulaner Salvador

End of an overall good week for me. Work's developing and hopefully some progress at home means I won't be living the dream of sleeping on my dad's floor for too much longer... James, Davin and Alex were all behind the beer selection this friday, so there's alot riding on this to see whether they vaguely like me and thus want me to have an enjoyable tipsy-train tipple.

Design wise we've got the traditional brown bottle showing a label with the name and brand below what looks like an old friar and some kind of noble gentry looking at a flask hopefully containing this drink. They both look knowingly at eachother in a way that I presume is related to the drink and not some local village wench.... First smell was just thick malty caramel going up my nose to be honest...and I quite liked it! The following deep swig was more of the same with a strong malty flavour rolling over the tongue before a coffee injection and caramel finish. There's also a slight bitterness at the end which I appreciated for not being too strong, with those deep level hops balancing things really well. In my opinion this seems to be as close as you can get to a stout without it being one, the lightness and floral edges all add to the enjoyment of this really interesting drink that I'd recommend you try once at least.

Cheers, and happy Friday everyone!

First smell after a kitchen can opening was very pungent floral scents with a feint hoppy background. Definitely got that classic pilsner taste to it with the hoppy feel, then an actual nice light and clean followup that carries through each sip. No big memorable flavours that stay on the tongue, but a decent enough drink to knock back.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up.

The following swig had a definite rush of those flavours and hops, but not as powerful as I'd expected, in fact quite a smooth delivery. As I went along there was definitely those vic secret and amarillo hops there, but more of constant buzz in the background.
