    St Bernardus extra 4. A Belgian pale ale I'd never have heard of until setting a foot into a beer store yesterday. It's indeed mostly unknown but a decent offering in the style.

    Was out by Noon Whistle Brewery yesterday and popped in and grabbed a crowler. Once I’m done with work today I’ll get my chance to enjoy.

    Today is a national holiday, so the banks, stores, etc. are closed. The Thursday morning market (240 vendors) in San Pedro was going strong...fruits, veggies, and a dress for Mrs. Z. I got a couple of Polo knock off Ts for 5 Euros each:sunglasses:



    Now home this afternoon and trying a new to me Scottish Stout:



    The Nitro insert gives it a creamy feel. Lightly sweet and dry. I like - Cheers!

    Good morning BA
    I am finished with coffee and burrito and felt like some juice.

    This was supposed to be an NBS beer, but I've got too many new singles. Great pale ale, very similar to Born Again for me. I passed on this last year because I couldn't find a single and have had some Mosaic beers that I didn't like. Won't pass again. Cheers!
    Edit: forgot the Cash

    Congratulations @Jlabs

    Smells nice but seems to lack a little thing called flavor.

    Cracking something new this afternoon. 2010 Pannepeut (Old Monk's Ale) from De Struise. Aroma is fantastic, with raisins, figs, chocolate, and a bit of spice. Cheers all!

    A Cruzcampo at the beach before I walk 4 blocks into the historic centro, and check out the only craft beer bar in town:



    Turns out the national holiday today is Dia de la Hispanidad, or National Spanish Day, commemorating the day that Columbus allegedly sighted the Americas on Oct. 12, 1492. Cheers from Estepona!

    Imperialist, a Struise / Bridge Road Brewers collaboration.

    From the commercial description:
    Only 4 ingredients were used, Vleteren water, German pilsner malt, Australian Galaxy Hops and Weihenstephan yeast. This lager not only bottom fermented, but also matured on its own bed of C02 for six months.
    Wow :slight_smile:
    Cheers!

    The last of my Summer brews from Southern Prohibition, canned in August . . .

    [​IMG]

    Light hazy lemon yellow color with white cap and lacing.

    My take on the aroma is a sharp, herbal scent that leans toward essential citrus oils.

    Taste is sharply tart with a lemon-lime infused pear salad mix of flavors that I don't usually put together but are present here. It's interesting, it's good, it's Summery feeling and goes down easily. Brewer says it's dry hopped with Calypso and I suppose that's the source of these flavors.

    Light texture with balancing carbonation.

    A Summer wheat brew that I'm drinking at the end of lingering warm days bringing a pleasant coda to the season.

    I'm going to sip on this beast of a beer as I pick up a thousand black walnuts and relocate them into the woods.

    I spied these in a store for $31.99 a four pack and should probably buy one to cellar. Enjoy your day people!

    The mrs. is in the house on an important business call so I'm hanging outside with the dogs. She didn't want any spontaneous barking frenzies as background noise during her call.

    This is Ellie...

    I'm hoping she never actually figures out how to climb the fence to chase the squirrels...

    Heaven, I'm in Heaven...The Irish owners of Siopa (Michael and Sara) have returned from 2 weeks holiday, and reopened their craft beer bar today. First up, Jakobsland Brewery, Galacia, Spain - "Fix For The Fits" an IIPA ringing in at 9%:



    The artwork is cool:



    Strong pine with citrus zest supported by semi sweet caramel malt. Columbus, mosaic, simcoe, citra and cascade hops. So west coast! I hardly remember a great piney IPA, and this brewery from the north of Spain is killing it.

    Actually made a quick stop last night and had a cask pale ale with Ekaunot hops added. Only posting because it looks similar and is more interesting than the now breakfast Guinness Draught:

    Out of class and no work tonight, so hitting some studying and some 2K. Probably more of the latter knowing my studying habits...
