Meantime Coffee Porter @30

真的很好喝,相當高級而典雅,還竟然只是這個價位!推介。
Meantime Chocolate Porter @30

有趣,但印象及不上Coffee。Meantime 看來不錯。
9 Dragon Pale Ale @32

OK已對九龍啤失望,太unbalance。
9 Dragon Double Happiness IPA @32

A bit too heavy and bitter on the hops, but the sweetness is very pleasant. Won’t say it is unpleasant, just a bit too overpowering on the hop for my taste.

De Molen Amarillo Imperial IPA @40

I am serious this one is, probably one of the most masculine and heroic IPA I have had. Great value!
Founders Breakfast Stout @43

很強力的Stout,有點alcholic但還是不錯的。

Und sagen wir bier

文章類別: Mixology — Alfred @ 9:54 pm

一時興起,喝小廠的精製啤酒。HK Brewcraft

Kagua Rouge @55

明白了為什麼會得獎。日本人在比利時釀的啤酒。
Brewfist Spaceman IPA @98

Just saw the price. Decent, deep hops, more restrained, but definitely classy. Like French wine. Interesting. But not gonna drink it as dailies.
Lost Abbey Devotion  @155

8-wired Saison Sauvin @70

是很好喝的,被爸喝了。
8-Wired Hopwired IPA @75

很好喝!原來這個價錢… 但真的很elegant,像wine般
Brewdog Punk IPA @34 (22/2/2015)
Very elegant and flavorful hops, medium bodied, bright and vibrant. I love it. Now can’t drink the commercial beer anymore.

Zeffer Dry Apple Cider @39

Almost wine like. This cider demand respect. Crisp and vibrant acidity and nice minerality. Refreshing.
Brewdog Old World Russian Stout “Rasputin” @ 98

The name may be very very evil, but the taste is not that remarkable. Good drink and pleasing, but without much character worthy to illustrate.

Coffee Review

文章類別: Caffe — Alfred @ 4:06 pm

由於各種原因,喝咖啡去。Aeropress,Hario V60,Kono,Mokapot,French Press都有用。

下劃線代表推薦下劃加深代表極推薦。

Fresh Coffee by Landy

  • Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Koke Espresso @ Full City
  • Ethiopia Sidamo Union Fair Trade @ Full City

Very elegant with pour over (Kono). Pleasing with Aeropress (paper), but not as revealing as the pour over. Too spicy and edgy, if not unpleasantly sour with the French Press. Very nice. Given the price, the Sidamo is better.

  • Deep Blend @ Full City +

Lacking in body and flavour for the typical Landy experience. Even with high dosage, nothing really impressive. Tried with Aeropress and pour over.

  • Mandeling/Brazil @ Full City + 

Surprising pleasing with such a budget price. Though lacking in complexity, you can’t dislike it. Still, limited result due to the quality of the bean. Fun to try though.

  • Ethiopia Operation Red Cherry Kebado Coop @ Full City (27/11/2014)

Probably the most pleasing Ethiopia I have ever tasted. Very good, although less acidic, but the body is medium-full and flavorful. Very gentle. High recommended, get it while it lasts.

  • Java Kayumas Ljen Plateau @ Full City + (4/12/2014)

A nice body body on the heavy side. Observable acidity, but at this roast level the bean character is eclipsed. Pleasing, but I am not really into Indonesian coffee.

  • Yemen Mocca Mattari @ Full City + (7/12/2014)
  • Yemen Mocca Mattari @ Full City (4/2015)

This is it. One of the best coffee I have had, and probably gonna supersede the place for Ethiopian coffee if I am going to find more like this. Yemen is the MAN. Flavorful, full body yet very elegant. Powerful but gentle. It has everything I want. Will proudly make this as my house coffee.

  • Papua New Guinea AA @ Full City + (10/12/2014) 

Decent, but nothing special. Nice acidity edge without overpowering, body is medium. Pleasant but nothing special.

  • Colombia Emerald Mountain @ Full City + (12/12/2014)

Nothing like Blue Mountain. Medium to full body, you can feel the acidity, but it is not bright nor sharp, it is there. There is a fruitiness, a sweetness, a tartness. Vibrant, playful and fruity. Overall a pleasant cup but I am not going to try it again.

  • Uganda Bugishu @ Full City + (17/12/2014)

Pleasant surprise. Clean, medium body, flavorful. Huge bargain.

  • Tanzania Bergfrieden Estate Peaberry @ Full City + (18/12/2014)

Some of the most mellow, full-bodied coffee I have tried in my life. Roast to full city and beyond, add lots of milk and just enough sugar to cut the bitterness, and you get a very cosy Christmas day. Highly recommended for mixing with milk and sugar, but maybe dull for straight up.

  • Jamaica High Mountain @ Full City + (17/12/2014)

Pretty normal Jamaican coffee. Medium body, tingling acidity, but really nothing special. Use more water and you get a typical clean Jamaican coffee. Aye.

  • Tanzania Arusha Mtei Estate @ Full City + (Late 12/2014)

Indeed pleasant, but nothing comparing to the Peaberry above. Gotta love the Tanzanian coffee.

  • Ethiopia Sidamo Wondo Haraicho @ Full City + (1/2015)

Very comforting. Soft in the mouth, very clean and elegant, medium bodied. Maybe some of the most soothing Ethiopian coffee I ever had. Recommended.

  • Tanzania AA Kilimanjaro @ Full City + (1/2015)

Interesting. Mild, more subtle flavor, enough acidity. Overall very pleasing, good enough as house coffee.

  • Sulawesi Grade 1 @ Full City + (1/2015) 

Good. Actually much more elegant than Sumatra. Interesting to try.

  • Zambia Lupili @ Full City + (1/2015)

Interesting. Masculine but elegant that demand respect. Enough acidity to impress. Good one.

  • Mexico Honey Huatusco @ Full City + (1/2015) 

Very pleasing and smooth, low acidity because of honey process? However said, Tanzania is far better.

  • Cuba Crystal Mountain @ Full City + (2/2015)

Miraculous. I am left speechless. Body is medium to full, but extremely elegant. The acidity is definitely there but mellow, or better say, completely integrated into the structure. Light caramel, oak, vanilla… almost like the finest rum. A heroic cup. From Castro with Love. Viva Cuba!

  • Ethiopia Yirgacheffe G2 @ Full City + (2/2015)  

Some of the best value you can get for daily coffee. Aye, drinking single origin/varietal as daily. Pleasant acidity, lovely medium bodied. Elegant. Enough complexity for a good experience.

  • Ethiopia Mocca Harra Grade 1 @ Full City + (2/2015)

There are acidity, but the smokiness is more dominant. Elegant, but lacking in characteristics to be a daily drink. Interesting cup. But the G2 Yirgacheffe is better. Maybe… mixing the two will be fun?

  • Rwanda Abakundakawa Cooperative @ Full City + (2/2015)

The Sin City. Body is light, smokiness, tobacco. While special, I am not really into it.

  • Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Gelena Abaya @ Full City + (2/2015) 

Typical and nice Ethiopia, though cannot find it to be special. Everything’s there though.

  • Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Koke Espresso @ Full City + (3/2015) 

Good. Everything you asked for the Ethiopian is there, plus a fullness and roundness that is most welcomed. Recommended. Just ordered another pack!

  • Ethiopia Mocca Harra Queen @ Full City + (3/2015) 

Very elegant and pleasing. A mellow Ethiopian coffee. Recommended.

  • Tanzania Songea Peaberry @ Full City + (3/2015)

Pleasant, a moderate Tanzania.

  • Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Aramo Grade 1 @ Full City + (3/2015) (3/2015)

Very smooth and soft. Quite pleasing.

  • Burundi Gasura AA @ Full City + (3/2015)

This is very good. A simply good drink. Recommended for daily.

  • Ethiopia Shakisso @ Full City + (4/2015)

This is not good. Too acidic without actual taste? Or was it an error to roast so deep? Just not okay for my use.

  • East Timor Eraulu Lauana cooperative groups @ Full City + (4/2015) 

Very smooth.

  • Nicaragua Macuelizo Nueva Segovia @ Full City (4/2015)

Peaceful. Easy to drink.
Ethiopia G2 Washed AMB @ City (5/2015)

Nice! Got to love that lemonic acidity, and pleasant, and elegant.

Indonesia Sumatra Aged Lingtong Mandheling PB  @ City (6/2015)

East Timor Eraulu Lauana Cooperative Groups @ Full City (6/2015)

Browny Coffee

TBC
Pacific Coffee Emporium

  • Costa Rica Peaberry @ Vienna/French

Interesting smokiness, though the character is diminished by the deep roast. Fun to drink with Aeropress, okay with pour over (V60).

妳們的Live,就是宅的No Life

文章類別: 現代視覺文化研究, 思愛者言: Discourse of Love — Alfred @ 11:41 pm

不論是宮崎駿也好,岡田斗司夫也好,他們都無法理解現時的宅文化。這是可以理解的,因為他們生長在憑藉努力可以生存的年代;他們無法理解在「絕望」中生長的一代,只會生產並消費「絕望的」文化。

社會人都怪罪宅文化脫離現實:動漫畫裡的女孩子,身材太誇張,現實不存在。動漫畫裡的女孩子性格太好(或太壞),現實不存在。所以他們說,喜歡看這些東西的人都有病,都不正常。

他們要嘲笑宅人,也實在是不得自已的。因為在就連生存也成為日常問題的社會裡,只有透過否定他人的虛妄,才能確立自己是真實的、正確而合理的。當樓價,可以是三代人的薪金也難以完成供款;正當租一個實在不能活得有尊嚴的小房以供寄住,都要花上半個月有多的收入時,如此荒謬的現實,「正常人」實在難以面對。所以「正常人」要嘲笑宅人「不現實」,也是不得自已的。

Bran Caia 2007
真是像水一樣喝,不錯的餐酒,無甚可提,但亦無法挑剔。


Luciano Sandrone Valmaggiore 2010
如一往的好喝。

Musar et al.

文章類別: Wein und Zeit, Mixology — Alfred @ 10:36 am

其實這陣子喝了些,但沒記下來

Chateau Musar 2001, 2003

都很好喝,都忘了寫TN。一定記得的,是過了十多年,依然光潔如新,時間只是稍為將它們修和了一點,仍然十分新鮮。相信Musar要真正成熟的話,真的需要20年左右的歲月吧。

Golan Heights Yardeen 2008

實在是很不錯,但有人覺得搶。不過Carbernet那種雄渾有力的味道,真的令人回味。也許是因為加利利(Galilee)的天氣問題,所以比較刺?也許需要多五年時間才會融和吧!但個人就是很喜歡中東的葡萄酒,尤其這枝酒會讓人想起耶穌的第一個奇蹟。

Chateau La Fleur Petrus 1983

真的要喝了

Glenfiddich 12/15/18Y說實在的,Glenfiddich實在沒甚麼特別,個人真的喜歡Glenlivet遠多。

Nuits Saint Georges

1er Cru Clos de la Marechale 2008

Clos des Fourches 2006

釀造這功力不錯,但都沒太大感覺,Burgundy還是要喝神級,不然喝其他東西算了。

文章類別: Wein und Zeit — Alfred @ 4:56 pm

跟RWBY完全無關係。

平凡質量一般,但也好喝的一般陳年西班牙。

CVNE Reserva 1998

Bruno Giacosa “Valmaggiore” Nebbiolo d’Alba 2010

喝到功架但有粗有辣,當是水來沖下食物也可以。只不過給到這個價錢也許只為Bruno Giacosa的label。

七月 23, 2013

whatever maybe.

Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese Gold Kapsel 2007

一如以往地可愛的Sonnenuhr,始終是elegant的,清巧的味道,在Auslese的濃烈感中表現。陳年以後出了蜜香,但卻是輕巧雅致的。

Markus Molitor Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spatlese 2005

好!一如以往的清麗。

Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr 2009

Wow. Fritz Haag貴一點是有原因的 。骨幹十分清明,力量足而不失優雅。以Auslese來說實在十分優雅。

Domaine de Pegau CdP 1998

偉大,實在讓人喜愛。陳年十五年,果實變得高雅,本來Grenache的強甜亦穩重起來。很喜歡。
Ch. Suduiraut 1979

明明是美女為什麼要那麼濃妝?
