Tasting Notes - Oatmeal Stout

What surprises me about this batch is that different bottles have different tastes. Some are dark and clearly stout like, while others are more akin to Newcastle Brown. Not sure why this is so. The bottles that are properly stout like have a nice flavour and a good thickness to them. The "brown" bottles are a little thin. Hmmm.

Beer Number 1,000

At long last my friends (or iRob at least), I give you beer number 1,000!

Beer 1,000 was Budvar Krouzkovany Lezak (yeast ring lager - 12°). This is a krausened version of Budvar, served on tap at the Masne Kramy pub. The added yeast makes this beer slightly more bitter than the bottled or normal draught versions, and also gives it a slightly more complex taste. I highly recommend it!
