What's up Maniacs?
It's time again for another addition of Beermania! This week I will be reviewing and giving suggestions for the UFC on FX 2: "Alves vs. Kampmann" event to be held tomorrow night (Fri., March 2, 2012) from the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.
As usual, I'll rate and review two different styles of beer prior to the event, with one brand representing each of the two main event fighters. For this edition, I will present a beer from Brazil (Thiago Alves) and a beer from Denmark (Martin Kampmann).

Carlsberg's really become part of the Danish cultural heritage and the Danish thirst.
You experience a harmonious balance between bitterness and sweetness of apples, while enjoying the bright golden color with a nice foam and the scent of pine straw, hazelnut and sorrel. Yes, it's almost like a spring day in Denmark. And that dress Carlsberg, the Danish kitchen all around.
Serving suggestions: Should be served at approx. 7-10 ° C. A good generalist, by virtue of its refreshing body and good balance are almost indispensable to the traditional Danish lunch table. For example, eminent to neutralize the mineral salt in marinated herring, nypillede shrimps and capers so there is more room for the meat fine aroma.
Carlsberg is also suitable for laying on salads from hønsekødssalat summer salad. Plays incredibly well with the bite of fresh horseradish, whatever it is being used as garnish or imposition of a roux sauce for beef brisket and new potatoes.
That does it for this special edition of Beermania. As always, enjoy responsibly.
