I’ve tasted beer with chili before but this one where really the next level. But why beer on a Thursday?
That’s a totally reasonable question. In Sweden we have summer normally from June to August. So when it today became a sunny Thursday with 20 degrees Celsius it’s a gift. It’s pretty much as Swedish summer in October!
So I just couldn’t let a summer evening possibility like this slip by without a beer on the balcony. The result ended up in me testing the Norwegian beer Habañero Helles Chilli Lager from the Ægir brewery. A perfectly good lager with a kick of Habanero. And that kick is spicy not just a little bit, it’s spicy for real unlike chili beers I’ve tried before. If you like spicy stuff you got to try it. Truly and experience and at the same time a good lager. However I would probably taste even better when it’s a bit more chilly outside (Yes, that was a wordplay and a Gothenburg-ish joke).
By the way the sunset where pretty good to!
However this years its been quite different and warmer than usually. The summers we are used to however has made us worship the sun and warm weather.
A sunny Thursday and 20 degrees Celsius outside. That’s pretty much as Swedish summer in October!
It’s back! Lifeguard Thursday! Back in Gothenburg and trying to get into good routines and good habits. Before I moved to Oslo I trained lifeguarding once a week and where even competing in it. After moving back to Gothenburg it’s been a bit difficult to settle in and get things to work with a new job and a lot of traveling to Oslo and finding an apartment among other things but now I’m hoping all of that is set and I’m good to get to start with the lifeguarding again.
It’s now everyone that knows that lifeguarding is a sport that you could compete in and in Scandinavia we got a lifeguarding competition called Nordic relay that’s adapted to indoors which I’m real great full for with our climate. However there is also international versions and competitions. Did you for example know that USA tried to get the international type of the sport to become and Olympic sport.

Thursday and the last days has been intense and both me and G have worked quite a lot. So after work today we ate and then we have just relaxed and watched tv. That has been so nice it was just what we needed.
I’ve had some Christmas root beer, I’ve deserved that. Or Julmust as we call it in Swedish. It’s so good and like it a lot.
Now it time to get some sleep and get ready for Friday.
Below do you have the only real brand of Julmust and how it looks.
Yesterday was as intense and I bought a new jacket. It will be a post about that when I get a picture of it.
After that I looked at clothes with G who found a new cardigan. Then we had tapas dinner because last night was our last dinner together for this week. You can say we celebrated Friday in advance. Also looked a bit at the Appel event which was nice. Then we quickly cleaned the apartment which not was fun at all but then we finished of the evening by just siting and talking a bit in the couch.
Overall a real nice evening.
Last night was the last night together with my girldfriend for this week. Today she will travel with some friends and be away for the weekend. So we spent last night with going out to dinner again.
This time to the Italian restaurant Vapiano. I went with an excellent pasta and she with the ravioli. Its a cosy restaurant for interior that’s a bit italian and a bit Scandinavian.
It’s a bit like a mix between a regular restaurant and a fast food restaurant. Food is great and price is okey for being Oslo in my opinion. If I should grade it it would get 4 out of 5 points.
Before dinner we took a walk in central Oslo which was great and the weather was sunny and warm. Almost like summer again.
Then we went home and she prepared by packing for her trip and I watched some CHL hockey. Watched the game between my favorite team Frölunda and Geneva. The we just relaxed together for the rest of the evening.
Was a great Thursday a bit out of the ordinary.
