Yeah! We’re going back to McCathy today! Three weeks of looking for a truck, and we finally found the perfect one, and negotiated a good deal! Looking forward to returning to our cabin building project. A week delay was good for the beer paintings, I have been having fun with them.
Today’s beer painting is of Carlsberg Premium Beer from Copenhagen, by appointment to the Royal Danish Court. This is a very tasty European imported yellow fizzy beer. It has more hop aroma than German style pils. My first experience with this brewery was with the strong lager called Elephant Beer. It was on my first beer poster, “Beers of the World”, that I had hanging in my college dorm room freshman year. Corona and Heineken were also on that poster. This poster must have been printed in the early nineties, and I was a young buck who knew nothing about craft brew. I understood about microbrew, but didn’t quite understand the difference between a quality product like Carlsberg and adjunct-filled, cheaply made macro brew devoid of hop flavor.
I recommend buying this beer in a can if you’re buying it in the U.S., because there is no light contamination, as opposed to the green bottle when sent across the Atlantic. When buying beers you know are not as popular read the “Born on Date”! I got lucky with this big can. It has an undecipherable code on the bottom, but no particular date, but it tasted fresh. I love European pilsners, and Carlsberg in the green can is a taste of Denmark that strikes me as particularly delicious!
Cheers to Carlsberg, the Danish beer fit for royalty! A very good refresher that tastes great even in Alaska!
