The Blog (Beer Log)

Last Tasted Beers

These are the last 100 beers I recently tasted (just the new beers, that is those I tasted for the first ime), with a short comment if present. Of course you can find all the beers in the Database in all its formats. The comments and ratings are usually the ones I wrote at the time of the first tasting; sometimes the rating (and more rarely the comment) may be updated. I usually don't give the Lambics any score.
