    Happy Friday BAs

    Heading out this morning to a beer release at RedRock Brewing but first a little something to get me going. Lagunitas Waldos' Special Ale. It's like a kick in the teeth and I mean that in the most enjoyable way possible. Kinda like brushing your teeth with hops! I'm ready to start this craft beer Friday!

    Cheers BAs

    I had spent one day in Asheville last summer. Didn't have time to sit at Wicked Weed so I ended up picking Freak of Nature and Barrel aged Old fashioned type beer.
    Man, between the hops from FoN and the big ABV of barrel aged old fashioned, you can imagine it left an impression on my mind.
    One that I don't quite remember:slight_smile:
    Cheers!

    Good morning/afternoon and happy Friday BA's! Got a couple of incredible milestones coming up for the GotD Staff, but I've got to do a couple of award ceremonies to make them happen :sunglasses:. With that, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your glasses always full! Except when you've finished, then just fill it again otherwise it won't...nevermind! It's time for the Glass of the Day Awards!

    GotD: I know it's difficult due to the glare, but @Brolo75 went proper x2 with this Ovila chalice and that made me happy. Cheers and congrats to your first GotD :slight_smile:!
    2nd: Sticking to the chalice theme (well, for 1 and 2 at least), I don't know or care if I've awarded this specific vintage thumb print Schlitz Light chalice or not, and frankly I don't give a damn! Lovely vessel @muchloveforhops3 !
    3rd: And finally, I don't want to miss the opportunity to give out an award for this pretty sweet Watneys dimpled tankard if this is a vacation destination mug that @Shanex, er I mean @JakeScully has been using all week :stuck_out_tongue:!

    Honorable mention goes out to @Txex06 for this height challenged Hansa willibecher.
    Cheers everyone, and I will see you all soon!

    GotD.

    It's Friday! It's Friday! It's Slurm'in time!

    The last of my six. I think It tastes best about a week old to be honest. If a pineapple and a grapefruit had a baby this would be their offspring. Alcohol taste is much more prominent now though. I hope you are all having a great beginning to your weekend fellow Ba's! a big flippin

    Thanks Mr @Lingenbrau ! Third yet mentioned in the gotd award is very appreciated. For more background this brewery (Watney) was UK based and closed shop somewhere in the 50s. So almost a collector.

    Cheers!

    Mrs. Z is out!, and in the house. An actual hotel beer while we await transport later this afternoon to next hotel - The Raven Special Lager, Peabody Heights Brewery, Baltimore, MD:



    A Vienna style lager. It's no Devils Backbone, but it's pretty good..."Open here I flung the shutter when with many a flirt and flutter, In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore...Perched upon the bust of Pallas just above my chamber door - Perched, and sat, and nothing more. Quoth the Raven, 'Nevermore.' "

    Another barrel aged beer as I rid the garage of unnecessary 'stuff' on a cool wet day. Quite a change from yesterday's sunny and 86 degrees.:slight_frown: This beer has really sweetened up since I purchased it last fall. It's definitely better fresh in my opinion. Cheers gang!

    Ages gracefully well: syrupy maple yet not (overboard) cloying, roasted/bitter coffee notes, milk chocolate, subtle fruit intricacies. ABV is subtle, has a nice sticky feel, with moderate carbonation

    Ok . . .

    [​IMG]

    Score 3.67
    look: 3.75 | aroma: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

    Light amber gold with small white cap and little lacing.

    Aroma of caramel malt with some hop bitterness.

    Taste is middle of the road amber lager with a higher hopping level than, say, Yuengling Traditional, but doesn't really taste any better. Should pair well with seafood and if that was the goal it was achieved.

    Brewer says this is their best seller and I can see why. It's a crowd pleaser that doesn't challenge the BudLight fans and has enough substance for those who want more flavor. I appreciate a brewer who makes a customer oriented brew and if I was having lunch at a lobster shack on the Cape this is what I'd choose over a heavily flavored competition winner.

    I checked my blood pressure the last 3 days. It somehow averaged 106/71. So, I'm going whole hog in Wisconsin.
