We just got back from the Republic of Malta today, and of course there is a video on the way! But for now I want to present to you a few local beers I got to try there.
If I'm talking about beer in Malta, I have to talk about the Cisk wich I had to try as it is everywhere.
It's a simple lager, nothing very interesting about this beer exept the fact that it is brewed on the Island of Malta. You will find it everywhere
So let's move on to some more interesting brewery! And more pleasant beers too :-)
Blue Label Ale | Farsons Group
This is an Amber ale from Malta I had the chance to taste in a restaurant by the sea in Gozo.
The Otters Bistro is located in the bay of Marsalforn , North Gozo. And as you can see on the picture, the sea is right unrder our feet! It's a nice place where you can eat local food and apreciate a large choice of wine too.
|Robe||Clear amber red|
|Aroma||Apple and floral|
San Blas | Lord Chambray
So this Brewery is furtherst south of Europe, and it's the only mirco-bewery in the republic of Malta. It's of course located in Gozo! the best island of Malta :-)
I have tryed most of their 10 beers, and I even brang a few back home!
Let's start with the English IPA
This beer has been rewarded many time and you understand why!!
Wonderfull harmony between citrus and bitter taste of the hop! And a light sweet taste too.
So if like me you love discovering new IPAs you will be glad to ass this one to your taste pallet.
|Aroma||Citrus and touch of Caramel|
Blue Lagon | Lord Chambray
I really have a thing for Belgian-Style Wheat Beer I think!!
They are refreshing, a little bit sweet but with a lot of taste!
So of course I loved this craft beer we tasted in a cosy restaurant we stumbled on in Victoria (also called Rabbat), Gozo Island. Perfect beer before some home made raviolis with a rabbit sauce!!
|Aroma||Resfreshing spices, Citrus|
Golden Bay | Loar Chambray
So another beer from the same brewery but as it is the only one of the island, I feel excused.
I can't say I have a great memory of this beer but it's more about the situation than about the beer!
I bought this beer in a mini-market on our last day on the island and we were exausted! And quite sad too because the vacations was so great! So I won't be presenting it or rating it because it would't be fair.
Here is a 3 pack I highly recomend you offer to a friend ... or keep to yourself ;-)
Oh and sorry if I have offended some Cisk fans... but I don't think there are any ^^
That's all for today, I will leave you with a Panoramic shot I took there, So you can immagine the atmosphere of our week!
