Tasted: 7 Imported Beers from Delhi Wine Shops

[This is not a beer review]

Sometime in the beginning of the last month, I found myself running from one wine shop to the other in the capital’s busiest mall in South Delhi looking for varieties of imported beers. In the last one month, my quest helped me to taste seven verities of them and here is the list in the order of my liking.

You may term it as an another excuse to drink, but what I really wanted to do was to taste and know more about beers. In the process, I had subscribed many blogs, gone through not less than 20 websites on beer and discussed quite often with people around and forcing some of them to listen beyond their interest.

It is difficult or rather should I say, not good to compare one beer with another (the way we compare cars in as each one of them are fermented and flavored with their own unique ingredients and ways. I am not a beer taster and the order below is purely the way I liked it -not going into much details like a pro would tell in terms of A – appearance, S – smell, T – taste, M – mouth feel, O – overall.

  1. But you have not mention the various location available in delhi adn seems you have not enjoyed them rather you are just copying and pasting them, you are just advertising them believe me, a passionate beer lover can recite them very well which beer to go for even the best thins can have some taste or smell issue which you are not mentioning.
    Anyway Can u tell the bars and the pubs where these beer are available in Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon and their prices too.
    You have just put the price of the The Liquor Shop, which even a kid can do who is not drinking.

    You are just advertising not blogging the right way.
    so giving you 1 out of 10.
    (the way u r bloging)
