Rothaus Pils and an apple pastry for breakfast. Prost!

This baby was born October 8, 2015. He's turned into a brat. May not even be able to finish it.
It's supposed to be in the 70's and 80's all week so I'm gearing up for a solid week of yard work. But, seeing as it's only 35F right now, I'm just going to go ahead and reward myself in advance...
I couldn't find my stange so I had to use a pub glass!
Time for some lunch.
Andechs: Doppelbock Dunkel, an incredible beer.
'Sup BAs? Drinking Duvel, which has become less of a regular of mine in recent months..
On my wayyyyy to LA...
Good Morning BA
Well, that 12 hour night turned into 13 and I need a beer. The store selling these $.99 singles had a sign proclaiming this to be the Budweiser of Germany. I'm sure that would not go over well with the folks producing this all malt pils.
If Bud tasted like this, I would have probably never joined this site. This beer is 6 months old and holding up pretty well. No big aromas or tastes, but nothing is off either.
Drink one for me today BA. Cheers
Evil Twin Molotov Lite.
Good morning, BAs! Another Trill to start my day.
This one is off the charts good. I think Trillium is my new #1. Sorry, TH, I still love you too.
Monday. And to that I say; "Oh yeah?" I am going to drink this and learn how to use that. Cheers BA's!
I'm going to sit a spell on the patio after the morning run with this kid that was born on 9/21/16. A comfortable but windy day after some thundershowers earlier. It was a crazy weekend with a mountain of yard work that barely put a dent in the list. This wet spring has me way behind. Cheers to a new week!
Got this today...
Revisiting some faves from the weekend, plus a second bottle of Marshal Zhukov's Penultimate Push - pricey ($23+?), but good enough for me to grab again...
However, I'm starting the day with...
DuClaw's Hell on Wood BBA barleywine...
There it is, BA...
And some cheese blintzes... I mean, why the fuck not?
Thought we had some strawberry preserves around here, but guess the wife ate 'em...
Ready to rumble?
Hell on wood? Hell on earth...
Cheers, thunder lovers...
Quad, La Trappe Quad.
Alesmith, when was the last time I told you I loved you?
Delightfully great tasting!
Mornin' BAers, and WBAYDNers, back to an old familiar standard for me, because I'm not 13 and I have stuff to do...*sigh* more book work to finish off. This thing seems endless, so I'm glad for the cold, bitter, sweet, and perky embrace of this beer. Cheers all!
Good morning friends!
Born 2/27/17, this Trillium beer is like a glass of golden sunshine, enjoyed while taking in the air of a vineyard in Southern Hemisphere.
Drinking this while enjoying a recorded rerun of Brew Dogs TV episode where the brothers go through Belgium, creating the ultimate Belgian 6 pack!!
Well it's local so I gotta give it a shot, just in case anyone asks . . .
Just the logo is all I can post for now, this is Lucky Town Flare Incident, an oatmeal stout brewed with Vermont Maple syrup and brown sugar. The malts are 2 Row Pale, Chocolate, Caramel 60L, Black Roasted Barley, Flaked Oats and Flaked Barley. Irish Ale Yeast, 5.7 ABV and 58 IBU.
look: 3.25 | aroma: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A muted brown color with slightly orange highlights.
Aroma of roasted coffee. Some dark toffee as well touched with Turbinado sugar. Surely the are hops in there though concealed by these heavier scents.
Taste of roasted malt/coffee with a clean finish. Brewer says this is brewed with Vermont Maple syrup and brown sugar but I can't tell if that means before fermentation or is added afterwards. Not as sweet that these flavorings imply because this brew tastes and finishes rather dry. Columbus and Fuggle hops are used for an IBU of 58 but they're so over layered by the coffeeish malt if I'd been told the IBU was half that I wouldn't have argued.
Almost full texture with a good dose of carbonation. A fuller, rounded feel that borders on creamy.
Brewer lists pale and dark roasted malts (chocolate, caramel, 60L and Black) as well as flaked oats and flaked barley. I think flaked grains do add to the body here and that's a plus. I also expect the hops would shine more if the roasted flavor were less heavy. Whether more accent on hops would be a better thing I can't say. I can say the resident Guinness fan gives this brew an enthusiastic thumps up but he drinks Guinness so there's that.
Having a Nøgne Ø American Pale Ale. Slightly past it's best before date, but the shop gave a 10% discount in advance.
For who is interested; I found it at the Bierkoning in Amsterdam last Saturday. Wonderful shop and highly recommendable for any BA who finds him- or her-self in Amsterdam some day.
Some divine coffee to start the day. Cheers!
I'm about to drink this.
The little undead fish I sketched tells me I shouldn't. Can't be worse than Olde English 800 locked in the trunk of your car for two days in California summer heat can it?
What,why?...ehh I guess some men just want to watch the world burn.
Lone Pine Tesselation as I enjoy this beautiful spring day. Only problem is I'm looking at the yard and thinking I might have to go buy a power broom this year.
Two Brothers - 20 Years DIPA (can).. cheers!
Abita Andygator & Big Easy!
Crappy picture, decent beer: Modern Times Drop Art.
Called a fruited-tart saison, it tastes like a mild kettle sour. Pretty good for an affordable, readily available beer (at least this month). And the can art is <3
F*%K this photo is art. Cheers brother.
Not exactly what I think of when someone says "English breakfast," but I think you've picked winners on both the food and beverage fronts.
Quite old, but still very hoppy. Unfortunately, the hops that have faded leave it quite unbalanced.
Trillium Heavy Metal
I got the yard work out of the way early today...
....Staht spreadin' da nooos!
Kent Falls/Maybe Both. Who isn't playing today for the Yankees? Sanchez? Bird? Maybe both.
Canned 1/18, and it tastes like it. It's pretty dank now, and tastes more like a West Coast IPA. But you can still taste the softer tropical fruity qualities of what it once was. Oh well. That's what happens when you neglect what's in your fridge. Not that it's bad, but it isn't the same beer.
Nearly impossible for me to get a decent pour of this beer right now. That said it's a super clean tasting hoppy spelt saison. Some apricot and big lemony citrus flavors from the Amarillo hops, with nice spice and banana notes coming from the Belgian saison yeast. Really great beer. Might have to grab another bottle now. Cheers!
Welcome back Pat'
Couple of Pils and a slightly fruity spring beer with dinner. Roasted pork knuckle, mashed potato and sauerkraut.
