    Good morning, so is everybody on vacation? It's almost too damn hot to drink, but I'll kick off the week with Grimbergen as a refreshment.

    Both @Klourie and @muchloveforhops3 announced the impending arrivals of second children on yesterday's thread. May I say two things, gentlemen?
    1) congratulations
    2) teach the new one to wake mommy up.
    Otherwise, I will await seeing early am posts from you like this.

    This used to be a song on my favorite Monday morning cd at work. Now it's just wishful thinking.

    I say it all with love, advocates.
    Love of beer, that is.
    Happy Monday.

    Good morning BAs! Another overcast day here in NW PA as I listen to the apples hitting the roof. Trying something milder today:

    It's not a bad beer - you've just got to let it warm up a little away from that frozen beer mind set. Nice malt and hops, a little diacetyl, tasty!

    Not exactly local but locally available.

    Appearance: Nice light gold, attractive white cap and good lacing.

    Aroma: Malt first followed by a fuller sensation of hops that are earthy and spicy in a rounded out sort of way. The hops don't hit you like so many Session IPAs, rather cover my sense of scent like a comfy blanket.

    Taste: Rather nice as these Session IPAs go, it actually has some malt with the hops. At 6.3% it's got some stuffing to product all those fermentables and it shows. Hardly a session beer at this strength but I guess that's the marketing division input. Doesn't really stand out in the hops department but what's there is flavorful and present in a non threatening sort of way. I think my Bud Light friends might like this but they would get whacked pretty quickly.

    Texture: Medium

    Overall: A sensory flavor impact reminiscent of AALs yet something different. Malt without being malty and hops without being hoppy. A tweener. Not first rank but lower the price and it may prove popular.

    Good Monday morning all. It's about 8:30 here in Milwaukee and I'm charting several day trips with the RV. Some coffee to clear the cobwebs:

    While Mrs. Zombies is in Barbados, I hope to visit some local, and not so local breweries. I'll keep you posted - cheers!

    Like @Shanex mentioned in his opening, it's not cold at all in NW Europe today :slight_smile: A cold German Pilsner is my favorite at the end of a warm sunny day like this.

    Last time I checked, Jester King was out of them but one of the employees told me that a lot of people have asked about them so they might reissue them. If you want, BM me your info and I'll check next month when I'm in TX.

    Awesome! I was actually at the brewery a couple weeks ago for the first time. I have a friend in Austin so if they do reissue them i will make him go down there that day and grab me one. I appreciate the offer though! Cheers.

    Good afternoon BAs,

    A little afternoon snack. Modern Times City of the Sun Hoppy Juicy IPA and a little bit of handcrafted Italian salami made with barrel aged High West Whiskey, the salami not the beer! Barrel aged salami is where it's at!

    Cheers BAs

    Nice! They have a few different kinds in the wegmnas here. None made with whiskey yet but usually with sangiovese wine. I love the stuff! Cheers!
