P.S. If Your remember the other very famous hockey forward Helmut Balderis (he played for Soviet Union team). In that time our people told: Drink beer from Aldaris become Balderis.
I owe Herman a few of my own beers in exchange for the six-pack he sent me!
My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
17.0 points overall
Style 14 - German Light Lager
- 18 points - Beer #26-2092, Kaunakakai HI, at home, June 17, 1997
Golden-pale, low carbonation, big head. Fresh malt aroma. Very smooth beer, nice malty flavor without being too sweet. Pretty nice balance overall. A little warming late. Damn fine beer. 5.2% abv.
Style 12 - Bock
- 17.5 points - Beer #26-2093, Kaunakakai HI, at home, June 17, 1997
Deep red, low carbonation and head. Smells dark, caramel, some diacetyl. Thick, sweet, alcoholic. Lots of caramel flavor and a long sweet finish. A fair bit of chocolate flavor, too. 7.0% abv.
Style 15 - Classic Pilsener
- 15 points - Beer #26-2091, Kaunakakai HI, at home, June 17, 1997
Golden, moderate carbonation, good head. Sweet malt aroma, some alcohol. Surprisingly bitter...and at the same time surprisingly clean. Nice malt flavor after the bitter blast, with an almost-sweet finish. 5% abv.
