We’re talking about 34/70 again?
Good work making a better beer than a standard example. Pretty amazing.
Don’t discount that the W Original could have been old. That’s not a dig on his beer at all but you need to check the bottling codes on those imports. I just found some year old W Pils in my local store and these distributors are often pretty darn religious about fresh beer.
The Weihenstephaner Original Premium is pretty fresh, less than 3 months old. It was packaged on the 5th day of the 3rd week, 2020. We always study the date codes on any beer we purchase. BTW...that is just one reason why we started up Bel Air Brewing. To have a ready supply of good quality, fresh European style beer.
