啤酒让人“疯狂”!— 2022澳洲国际金牌及本土银牌“拉格”啤酒

(2022-08-17 13:26:52) 下一个

很多人喜欢啤酒,根据酿制方法大概分为两大类,一种叫艾尔啤酒,高温酿制(英文Ale),发酵温度在60-75F,另外一种叫拉格啤酒(英文lager),发酵温度比较低,在35-45F,欧洲(德国)啤酒属于此类。艾尔啤酒呈现琥珀色,外观透亮;泡沫丰富细腻,挂杯持久;香气丰富, 麦芽香气、酯香、酒花香气平衡宜人: 口感细腻, 酒体醇厚, 杀口力强。,网络知乎这样介绍,认同评语[1]。自己更喜欢拉格啤酒,因为拉格啤酒酒体纯净、口味清淡

 

世界最大规模的澳洲啤酒评比已有35年的历史,在分类慕尼黑风格Munich Style Helles Best European-Style Lager)评比中[2],来自美国维州黑堡小镇的本土啤酒(Fightin' Hokies Lager, Can Hardywood Park Craft Brewery)获得银奖(如图1)。每次参加澳洲啤酒评比的啤酒多达2500种左右,它们分别来自于420酿制厂家,分布21个国家。同类的金奖中,澳大利亚站三位,另一个来自德国,如图2(注:图片来自网络),其中一金牌得主酿制史可以追溯到公元1040 。六十多位啤酒专业评审专家在盲审中选择出心仪的啤酒,因此评比具有非常权威性。澳大利亚啤酒看来非常不错,今后一定留意并尝试!另外,银奖有来台湾酿制啤酒(Buckskin Munich Helles, Can Buckskin, Taiwan),以及新加坡的啤酒(Ice Ice Baby, Bottle SevenDazeSingapore)。

 

今天,读到啤酒评比获奖新闻后,迫不及待去附近的Kroger超市买到银奖啤酒Fightin' Hokies Lager(图1),没有发现金奖啤酒。

 

今年澳洲国际金奖(分类Munich Style Helles )拉格啤酒如下(Australian International Beer Awards 10 - 13 May 2022[2]

俺的一位来自欧洲的同事其兴趣爱好就是自酿制啤酒,第一次见面,他就送俺半打,第一次品尝家酿黑啤,非常喜欢。自此以后,如果有选择,一定非黑啤莫属,毫不例外! 在一次家庭爬梯上,我告诉这位同事,黑啤有一股浓浓的巧克力味,他说:没有错。于是,立刻让我参观他的酿制小作坊,并给我展示了一袋来自欧洲的黑麦子,并且简单介绍了黑啤酒酿制过程。他说:黑啤酿制需要这种黑麦子,才有独特的巧克力味,这里当然没有这种特别地区生长的黑麦。后来,他放弃了这里的一切,其实,他可以一直待下去,一切都那么蒸蒸日上,却义无反顾回到欧洲,也带走了他的美味黑啤,或许啤酒就是其中的一个原因,爱美人也爱德国啤酒。我们所在地区有当地酿制的黑啤,也许对同事来说,没有了家乡清泉的甘甜和巧克力味黑麦,于是,总少了些什么。然而,俺不同,这里的啤酒被赋予味的记忆了。如果啤酒也可以让人疯狂,相信是真的。

 

 

听一听这首有些特别的乡村歌曲《People are crazy 》(人们疯掉了),生活有时就这样意想不到,您又会为谁、为何物疯狂,哪怕就一次?

1)有关啤酒词汇:

Ale
One of two of the most broad classifications of beer, the other being lager. Ale’s are brewed using top-fermenting yeast which ferments better at warmer temperatures, usually between 60 and 75° F, although ale yeast is sometimes used for some styles at lower temperatures. During the fermentation process the yeast rises to the top surface, releasing a frothy head of foam during the process. That’s why the yeast is called top-fermenting. The higher fermentation temperature also gives the yeast the opportunity to impart esters which can add very unique characteristics to the beer. Fun fact according to Wikipedia, “a number of U.S. states, especially in the western United States, “ale” is the term mandated by state law for any beverage fermented from grain with an alcoholic strength above that which can legally be named ‘beer,’ without regard to the method of fermentation or the yeast used.” That’s why there are beers that are clearly lagers, but they’re labels are marked with the word ale.

 

Lager

The second of two of the more general classifications of beer, along with Ale. Lager beer is brewed using bottom-fermenting yeast. This yeast flocculates to the bottom of the fermentation vessel. Lager is a German term for storage, as beer was lagered in caves at cool temperatures before any sort of refrigeration existed. In other words, lager refers to cold storage. The most important part of the lagering process is the cold fermentation temperatures – between 35° and 45°F – that give lager beer it’s characteristics of being smooth, crisp, clean, and less fruity and spicy due to the production of less phenols and esters during the fermentation process. Many big beers (Bud, Miller, Coors or BMC) are lagers because of their crisp and clean drinkability.

 

2)乡村歌曲《People are crazy 》歌词

 

This old man and me 

We're at the bar and we 

We're havin' us some beers and 

Swappin' I don't cares 

Talkin' politics 

Blonde and redhead chicks 

Old dogs and new tricks and 

Habits we ain't kicked

 

We talked about Gods grace 

And all the hell we raised 

Then I heard the old man say

 

God is great, beer is good 

And people are crazy

 

He said I fought two wars 

Been married and divorced 

What brings you to Ohio? 

He said, damn if I know 

We talked an hour or two 

About every girl we knew

 

What all we put 'em through 

Like two old boys will do 

We pondered life and death 

He lit a cigarette

 

He said, these damn things will kill me yet 

But God is great, beer is good 

And people are crazy

 

Last call it's 2:00 a.m. 

I said goodbye to him 

I never talked to him again

 

Then one sunny day 

I saw the old man's face 

Front page obituary 

He was a millionaire he 

He left his fortune to 

Some guy he barely knew 

His kids were mad as hell 

Huh, but me, I'm doing well

 

And I drop by today 

To just say thanks and pray 

And I left a six-pack right there on his grave 

And I said

 

God is great, beer is good 

And people are crazy

 

God is great, beer is good 

And people are crazy

 

God is great, beer is good 

And people are crazy
