Beer Tasting Corgoň Franciáš and Todd - The Axe Man

Hello, beer lovers! 🍻

It was still quite late; it was already dark when I returned from outside. I'm moderately tired and thirsty, so a beer will be an excellent end to the day, with the music still playing, reading the news on Hive, and commenting, but I have to concentrate on 362 #beersaturday, write the text, process the photos, and so on.

I just chilled two cans from the fridge: one Slovak and one Danish. I got them from different sources, one earlier and one later. I'm like a hamster: I collect these beers and then open them for #beersaturday, haha.

And not to forget to mention - listen to the recorded HHHLive Show, hosted by @ph1102 /Liotes. The special guest was @detlev, who told a bit about himself, BeerCommunity, and the new Worldmappin community, which will continue with the Pinmapple service.

🍻 😎 🍻

Corgoň Franciáš

Brewed by Heineken Slovensko, Hurbanovo, Slovakia. Can, 0.5 l, alcohol 4.3% ABV, IBU 48. It's a Bohemian Pilsener or Czech Pilsener-style beer with a long finish that features bready malt and hop character.

What do the Master Brewers say?

An honest draught lager with the highest bitterness, up to 48 IBUs of bitterness, balanced by the fullness of flavor of an 11% lager. Franciáš is named after the traditional method of rhythmic forging by three blacksmiths, symbolized in our lager by the three different hop varieties Aurora, Sladek, and Saaz used in the recipe. And it's these that give Franciáš its already legendary bitterness.


I got it from a friend who was in Slovakia. I don't know Slovak beers very well.

The beer is clear golden in color, with a solid head. It has no particular smell. A sip goes down the throat smoothly, and I immediately taste the bitterness of hops in my mouth, followed by the taste of bread and discreet hints of caramel. In the aftertaste, however, an assertive bitterness lasts long.

A drinkable and refreshing beer. It is a standard lager with a distinctly bitter finish. Otherwise, nothing special.

My mother-in-law brought us mushrooms, which will be for lunch tomorrow. We will prepare mushroom goulash.

But do you know them? The first to guess gets 200 Ecency Points.

Let's move on, one more beer to go.

Amager/Surly Todd - The Axe Man

Brewed by Amager Bryghus, Kastrup, Denmark. Can, 0.44 l, alcohol 6.5% ABV, IBU 100. Double dry-hopped single malt IPA.

What do the Master Brewers say?

For quite some time the Amager crew has been discussing this question: which person is the most rock’n’roll in the whole craft beer world - is it Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds or is it Todd Haug of Surly Brewing? In the end it wasn’t really all that difficult to decide since only Todd has played for Laura Dern in a David Lynch movie (yeah, Nicolas Cage was in that same movie, but since when did he count?) AND Todd plays the guitar in both a speed metal band and a stoner band. Add to that that Todd and his wife Linda are some of the nicest people to hang out with. So Todd, here’s to you: "Todd - The Axe Man" - a potent IPA loaded with fresh American aroma hops on a base of rich Golden Promise malt, Surly’s signature malt. Raise a glass to Todd, world class brewer - and master of the axe! Malt: Golden Promise. Humle: Herkules, Citra, Mosaic.


I didn't know these details from Wild At Heart. Nice.

The beer is cloudy, golden, and has an average head. It smells very fruity. The first sip goes down the throat smoothly, and the palate is dominated by hop bitterness, tropical fruit aromas, and pronounced citrus aromas, including lime, orange, tangerine, and pine. The fruit aromas disappear in the aftertaste, and the hop bitterness lingers for some time.

A juicy, fruity, and very drinkable beer, I would keep a classic, balanced IPA in the fridge as a sample IPA for when a beer lover visits. It is unavailable in local shops and only occasionally sold in a pub. I've tried two nearby, in Koper, Slovenia, and Rijeka, Croatia. To go or not to go is now the question :)

🍻 😎 🍻

And what am I listening to as I write this and taste the beer? Something from yesterday's #newtunes post. Again, nostalgia ...

not sure the name of the mushroom your Mother In Law give to you. but I believe it will be a nice meal. :) is it easy for you to get imported brand in your country? Not so much around here, only local is easy to find.

melinda010100 :

Are they chanterelles? That's a lot of mushrooms!

I really enjoyed hearing @detlev on HHH Live! I hope he stops in often.

godfish :

Lol, Corgoň :)) At first I thought the Slovaks dare to expert it :)) Fortunately, you somehow got it from there :)

Of course it cannot be anything special - whatever Heineken has purchased brews universal boring industrial beer. Save your taste buds - stay away :P

ph1102 :

Thanks for the mention! It was a lot of fun in the #HHHLive show with @detlev! I'm glad that you had a nice setup, show + cold beer... 😃

rafzat :

You mentioned about Slovak beers. Do beers taste differently in each countries or how?

aloysiusmbaba :

It's good to know you are having a nice weekend. Though I'm not into alcohol and all that, I think having a good drink is a fun way to relax. Thanks for writing and have a great Sunday.

coquicoin :

Nice way to end the day with music and cold beer, cheers 🍻 And I hope you enjoyed the mushroom goulash today 😋
