I gave away two of the three journals, and the receptions were almost as happy as mine. Nobody else had the indecency to butcher Lewis Carroll, at any rate. So the three of us immediately started pouring beer into us and recording our impressions. One of the great things about these journals is that they really give you the ability to discuss a beer on common ground by comparing notes on the flavor wheel. We found that we all taste things a little bit differently, which should not be too surprising.
The paper in these journals feels high-quality, and takes nicely to a fountain pen with no blurring or feathering at all. Likewise, the ink dried quickly and didn't create any real issues for me. Because I love to write with a fountain pen, I tend to be pretty picky about writing paper, so this was a real plus for me. In conclusion, the beer journal from 33 Beers is a great little product, and I highly recommend it.
