Good morning and happy Sunday, BAs and NBS regulars! It's not-so-bright and a little earlier than normal as I start off today for you. Which is fine - as a person can enjoy a new beer at nearly any time of day and chime in here, early or late. Yesterday, the GF and I went back to a new local brewery - one that opened in or about June of this year. They've added quite a few beers to their tap list, including two while we sat at the bar. The brewer(s) seemed to be at work during the day, putting in the hours at their business. Like our first visit, there were signs of promise but also some offerings that lacked of a more professional hand. In a recent thread on this site there was a question as to whether we should go back to forcing reviews on this site when rating beers. I will let you seek out and respond to that thread in your own time, but there is no debate here - you must come equipped with your virtual pen to this notebook of a thread. Okay, we NBS participants can't be a school marm and force you to act as we'd like as the site admins could with ratings if they so chose. However, NBS is not new - we've been doing it for 700+ weeks. I joined in the fun less than half that time ago, and if I could jump into the middle of it, so can you - don't be shy. But anyhow, back to what we do ask of you. We ask for a little bit of your time on this (or any) Sunday to to get to know your beer. Pour it in a glass and look at it and describe it to us. Sure, with modern technology you could post us a picture. But maybe try to make your 10th grad English teacher proud with your use of the language s/he helped teach you and bring us into the room with you through your description of the smell and taste of the beer. We're not there to hear your sighs of delight or groans of disappointment, so relay those to us in descriptions of how the beer feels and you feel about it, overall. That's about it. We ask you respect the thread and its request: a thought-provoked description of your beer. Oh, and if you take the time here, why not transfer your thoughts in some form to the beer's page for others to see on non-Sundays in the future. So the opening class bell is ringing. Take your seat with your virtual pens at the ready, as class is now in session. Who wants to begin?
