Beer World Cup Second Round Match No 8
Duvel Vs Timothy Taylor Landlord
Match of death this one. Two of the highest scoring beers in the first round go head to head.......
Feeling better informed on this one as I tried a Duval after it appeared in the 1st round.
gonna go to the wire over the next 6 days this one.
With two days to go Timmy just gets his neck in front of Duvel....
How has TT more votes than Duvel??
TT is a good beer, but it's not a patch on Duvel.
Perhaps all those who voted for Landlord should be hounded out of the country.
I didn't dislike the Duval when I tried it the other week, but the phenolicy character is too strong for my liking, makes it hard going.
I was rereading " brewing Britain " last night and tt gets a couple of pages in there. It was also the beer i was drinking when I met my wife so has fond memories for me. I've tried Duvel but can't really remember it, never had bottled landlord either but I'm voting for the cask version.
Really! It's a matter of good taste. I'm shocked that Duvel has done so well against TT. More worryingly is the number of people on here who think Duvel is better.
You all should be sent to the pub for 12 pints of TT as a penance. I'm sure that'll fix your wayward ways.
I agree. I love many Belgian beers, but Duvel is not one of my favourites. If I was trying to introduce a foreigner to English styles, TT would be a solid choice.
Duvel is a good "entry level" Belgian beer when Leffe doesn't cut it anymore. It was definitely one of my first tries of "good beer" many years ago before I got into craft/real ale.
Over the weekend I'm gonna pick up a bottle of Weihenstephaner Hefe (the beer of the month), I'll pick up a TT as well to see if my tastes have changed.
I concur with everyone’s views. Still neck and neck, I think it’s gonna come down to a last minute vote to decide the winner......
Could be a decisive moment in the tournament. If Timmy qualifies, he'll benefit from a consolidation of the traditionalist votes at the business end of the competition whereas Duvels vote will be diluted. Mind you no easy ties at this level, every beer is there on merit, it would be a shame to see any of them go home etc
Not a truer word said there. A very astute observation as well.
If he makes it, Timmy could be a contender.
What happens if there is a tie?
TT is a good, middle of the road beer. I prefer Duvel, but for many drinkers, I think the Belgian flavours are way out there. So I can see how TT has done so well.
I love Duvel, sadly I can't vote as I've never tried Timothy Taylor Landlord
I'd guess several people haven't tried both bot have still voted.
