I know it's a very old post, but since I just joined (I've been reading for quite a long time though) I thought I'd bring it back.Admiral wrote:Have people experimented to find out which beers go well with which malts?
Hahn Premium Lager from New South Wales is very malty, and goes very well with Cragganmore or Cardhu.
Tooheys Old, also from NSW, is a darker ale which sits well with a Bowmore.
Some of the fruitier beers from Tasmania (i.e. Coopers or Cascade) are excellent with a Glenmorangie or even a Macallan.

I suspected that, but since I've never had a chance and/or pleasure to taste the real one, I'll have to settle for what I get here in bottles. I tried Caledonian, but I was more impressed with McEwan's. Actually their bottled Scotch Ale is what got me hooked on the "dark side of the beer"MrTattieHeid wrote:To be honest, the bottled stuff is a shadow of the real thing...

Has matt something to do with that magazine too?
I know Michael Jackson is as much know for his beer opinions as his whisky. I think he rate an Irish beer called Curim the best wheat beer in the world. It's very nice, although it falls far short of some of the stuff available from Belgium and Germany.

I've got mine on Monday as well. Quite fast. I posted this queston on their Forum, but it's not as heavily populated so far - so, no replies I liked the magazine very much.Mr Fjeld wrote:Hi All!
Just wanted to tell you that the "Beers of the World" arrived a couple of days ago and it looks great. Good articles and interesting reading. "Our own" Michael Jackson writes an article and as always he's great!. This is certainly highly recommendable and absolutely worth a subscription!
