73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, and 79.....

As a family, we went downtown and watched the St. Louis Cardinals victory parade down Market Street. Afterwards we went home and as our wives went shopping, we started drinking.

I’m going to stop saying that we have any kind of set number for how many beers we do in a sitting, because it never seems to stick. I do believe, however, that we have eclipsed the number that any sane person should do in a single sitting, but this is what happens when we are left to our own devices. We thought of the beer in terms of time and not beers.

In this round, we have seven different pale lagers from literally all over the world. We went with some macro lagers, imports, craft, etc. I think we have a very good mix of them. Because we’ve chosen beers from all over the world, we’re just going to call these pale lagers instead of Pale American Lagers, but it’s close enough for government work.



The Fridge.

For some reason, we continue to find more beers to try and then we have to write about them….

This edition finds Bob and I trying some Marzen Oktoberfests. The first is local macro brewer Michelob Marzen and the second is Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen, and then we will be finishing up this jag with Coney Island Freaktoberfest.

This will be the first, and definitely not the last, time we try any of the AB Family of beers up against a counterpart from another company.

The style is characterized by a medium to full body, a malty flavour and a clean dry finish. In Germany, the term covers beers which vary in colour from pale (Helles Märzen), through amber to dark brown (Dunkles Märzen) (source). How do these three beers compare to each other?
