Last night Ralph and I had the pleasure of being invited to the soft launch of SOP (Same Old Place), the newest restaurant and bar in Klang Valley - thank you Mr. Choon and Miss Sarah.

SOP is set to shake up the local food and beverage scene with a line-up of 6 top German beers - Benediktiner, Bitburger, Konig Pilsener, Kostritzer, Wernesgruner and Licher that have arrived on Malaysian shores not long ago! From dark to bright golden lagers, the German beers are the touted to be the main attraction for SOP:


#9 Benediktiner - Like luminous amber suffused with orange highlights, Benediktiner Weissbier sparkles in the glass, with an opalescent appearance lent by the natural cloudiness of the yeast. Its rich, white head is characterized by a good density and fine texture. The pot-pourri of aromas combines strong caramel notes, with hints of honey and fruits, chief among them bananas and raisins. Each gently sparkling sip melts on the tongue and palate, bringing a distinct sense of refreshment. A full body, with a harmonious balance of sweet and a discrete bitterness in the background, creates a smooth, creamy mouth feel.

Bitburger - Germany's No.1 Draft Beer brand
Note first the bright, fresh golden color and rich frothy head so typical of this elegant Pilsner beer. Its refined herbal notes are delicately poised, followed by a nutty and honeyed aftertaste. The overall impression of this gently sparkling beer is one of deep harmony, with the unmistakable bitterness of the hops balanced and contained by an agreeable, mellow sweetness in the body.


Konig Pilsener was the first German premium Pilsener beer to gain widespread acceptance wherever quality of the highest order sets the standard. No other brand combines success and excellence as perfectly as Konig Pilsener - the king of beers. The finest, carefully selected ingredients and the knowledge of generations of the best master brewers provide the basic for the success of the unique taste of Konig Pilsener.

Kostritzer Schwarzbier - A mahogany color and a lasting, a cream-colored, finely pored head are the defining features of Kostritzer black lager beer. Its expressive fragrance evokes a range of intense spicy aromas, including sage, roasted chestnuts, dark honey, and bitter chocolate and fresh farm-baked bread. Dry on the palate, and marked by bittersweet herbal and toasting aromas. The intense aromas are balanced by the gently sparkling carbonation with freshness and elegance. With delicate bitter tones and malty sweetness, it finished slowly on the palate. A complex, many-layered black lager beer that tastes lean and refreshing with its abundance of flavors. Kostritzer produces more than 400,000 hectoliters of Schwarzbier, making it Germany's number ONE black lager beer brand, a position it has held for 20 years now.

Licher premium beers are a treat for every taste in beer with the highest standards of quality. With the classic varieties - Licher Pilsner, Licher Export and Licher Weizen wheat beer, and the low-alcohol and non-alcoholic variants Licher Leicht, Licher Isotonisch Alkoholfrei and Licher Weizen Alkoholfrei.


#10 Wernesgruner - Brilliant golden yellow with a light, white head is the unmistakable appearance of Wernesgruner Pils Legende (glass on the right side). This beer is characterized by an intense aroma of hops combined with a whiff of malt, reminiscent of the smell of ripe grain and fresh white bread just out of the oven. Lean, fresh flavor on the palate with natural sprightliness, subtle fruitiness reminiscent of apples and bittersweet hop aromas that linger harmoniously.

Apart from the beers, SOP also offers a wide range of wines, liquors, cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks, concocted by its very own mixologists.
