Last drop (bottle or draught) of that I had was in 1973. Couldn't even get a swig when I was over there in 2005, only passing through and driving Sad Sad

Nectar. Always told them to pull another before you even got a taste of the first because (quite rightly) it took so long. Seven minute beer according to a German friend. That's how long a good beer should take to be "pulled". Happy days!

I was always told that it was a Pils that took 7 minutes to pull if done properly. Any how that bottle of Iserlohner was sent over to me years ago via an old army buds mother. He got out and stayed in Deilinghofen. When I was last over in 07 I brought back about 6 bottles for various old buds. They were all very pleased in sipping their own bottle. My self that bottle is still un-opened as 33 years ago I found out I was allergic to alcohol. Or as our old Staff/Sgt Clert (former RAF WW 2) told us on arriving in Germany in 64, " Lads you aren't going to drink Germany dry. I've tryed twice on two tours.". My self, I'm pretty sure I had Iserlohner Pils working over time.

7 mins or not awaiting the foam to settle. I reckon the German way of dispensing beer was open to fiddling, especially if you were pi**ed!

Anyone know if the German Weight and Measures contol it nowadays? Is there a line on the glass?

Yes,there should be a line on the glass,but just for the sober!And there is an art in dispensing a good beer,and it must be at the right temperature.Over the last years I have acquired a taste for "Weissen",which is normally dished up in half litre glasses.There was nearly a revolution here when they tried to lift the import restrictions on "foreign"beer which contains preservatives.

Say what you want!

There is nothing finer than a cool, German Bier served from the proper taps at a German Gasthaus.

The temperature was 'just' correct if I remember it correctly. Are they allowed to use coolers now?

You don't drink that bloody stuff do you? It makes you go blind! It was good for the skin though, anyway that's what we where told, that our CO's wife bathed in 'Osnabrücker Pils'. So lads it was made for medication, no wonder that all those jocks where feeling bad one night. Laughing

What about the various schnapps (not that Jagermeister crap) but the skull cracking, stomach whooping stuff that made you stand up and pay attention. Seems to me a beer followed my schnapps so as to keep it from bouncing back up. There was obst schnapps (multi fruits apple, cherry, pear, etc) down south. Some of that stuff curled your toe nails.

How I remember Iserlohner Pilsner!! But "My Beer" was, and is, Warsteiner which I can get at the local liquor store sometimes. I was thrilled when I spotted it and it tasted pretty much like I remember but of course bottled beer is different than the wonderful 7-minute draught in a stone 1/2-litre mug with a big frothy, thick-foamed head on it!!! Mmmm-mmmm!! But, hey, I am quite content to crack open a bottle of Warsteiner, pour it into a glass, close my eyes, inhale the aroma and take that first, thirst-quenching drink and imagine when, I open my eyes, I'll be sitting in my favourite gasthof in Soest...so far, that hasn't happened but hope springs eternal LOL

The schnapps....we had this conversation a few months ago. Korn and Dopplekorn (aka lighter fluid)...guaranteed to do dreadful liquid-y things to your bowels! Evil evil stuff.... Smile

A wonderfully decadent, and Mmmmmm-producing moment is combining one's favourite beer with some rich, dark, Belgian chocolate (the chocolate first, guys...then the beer). There's this explosion of flavour and a wash of absolute contentment that flows through every corpuscle of one's being. Just one or two pieces of chocolate, mind you. Marzipan works too, but the chocolate and beer is much much MUCH better.

Asbach Uralt had quite a kick to it. Remembered one night in Munster we left camp about 7.45 pm, went down town to our favourite bar,and came up with the idea that anyone who spills his beer on the mat,including condensation ,buys a round of Asbach. We were back in camp at 8.30 pm ,well and truly plastered.

Asbach Uralt is a cognac Gallahad and quite a good one too. After my regular service I joined the TA and did 13 annual camps in Germany. Bringing my wife a bottle of Asbach each trip kept her sweet for weeks. I used to say 'Back to Gladbach for an Asbach'!!

When I was stationed in Hannover one of the favourite schnapps was called Steinhager. It came in a stone bottle so you never knew how much was left, often with dire consequences.

gingerjim,

It could well have been that one, although to be fair it was one of the better grades of
schnapps. Some of them were pure firewater. I remember the first night out I had in Hannover and it was the usual routine to get the new boys well and truly blotto. I was given a bier with a chaser called (if my spelling is correct) Ratzeputz. This was like liquid pepper and the game was you had to have at least six to become a 'member of the club'. It was a good job it was a Friday night as I was in bed for the whole of Saturday @ Sunday. That one really did come back at you even if you only had water to drink. The lads always referred to it as 'Rats Piss'. I will add that I never renewed my membership!!

I always stuck to.....

Noch ein bier,

Norman.
