Notes / Commercial Description:
If you’re anything like me, there were certain days you’d look forward to every month when the school hot-lunch calendar was released. Days that stood head and shoulders above the rest. The days when your absolute favorite cafeteria item was being served. Whether your food of choice be chicken fingers, tacos, pizza, french toast sticks, cheeseburgers, or country fried steak, those days were the best of all the days. The days when you could feel the electricity in the air as the seconds passed before the lunch bell would ring. With those memories in mind, we hope to elicit the same feeling of excitement with our newest brew: Taco Day. Taco Day is a 6.7% strong pale ale of the single hop varietal. We used an experimental hop from the Pacific Northwest. This beer has a subtle, floral taste with notes of berries in the aroma.

Too thin, hops do not shine through. Below average and for these guys, who make extraordinary stuff, that's a major disappointment.
