Here comes the first part of a loose series of short beer reviews. The test object today was actually not a British beer, but an Irish: Guinness
1. External characteristics:
Its colour is black, the froth is beige and is actually not a 'real' froth, but has more or less the consistency of cream, looks a little bit ugly when it comes out of the tap.
The froth tastes as bad as it looks like. The beer itself is much better, although for me it is a little bit too bitter. Especially the aftertaste is … well, could be better.
All in all: 6 out of 10
Yeah, that's right: 20% of the term is already over! I nearly cannot believe that… time passes really fast here. But as I feared, the relaxed part of the term is gone by now and lectures/seminars require quite a bit of work…
Additionally, I did some sports this week – went again running several times, joined the Sports Union and played Squash! That's really fun! I'm going to do that more often now and perhaps I will even find a nice racket in Birmingham tomorrow.
I also visited the Bible Study group (just a couple of hours ago), which was a very nice meeting (and also nice food/drinks).
Afterwards, I wanted to play pool in 'the bar', but we didn't find a free pool table – it's really annoying that they block the whole students' union when there is a party… all the pool tables there… empty…
OK, that were the most important things of my week so far, I guess.
