Lunch refreshment . . .
Light yellow gold color with white cap.
Aroma of soft, bready malt with floral, spicy hops. A note of citrus also which I presume comes from the hops.
Taste on entry is approachable malt like a soft bread yeast roll. Hops are present in a supporting role. The overall effect is a well integrated whole similar to a European Lager. Hops build ever so slightly leaving a refreshing bitterness in the aftertaste.
Light texture with balancing carbonation.
Overall this is a lighter style traditional lager with enough flavor to keep things interesting without any sense of heaviness. Flawless, well executed beer that I find very pleasing.
It would appear that I’m going to do nothing today but drink, this is #3 for the day, and on page 1 no less so I'll take a break after this one. I had to share the lacing pic though, because yesterday I had a unicorn, today I have a puma/lion jumping out of my beer. I couldn't make this up if i tried.
As far as the beer goes, it smells incredible but tastes like pure alcohol. 7.4% ABV feels like 12% .... The last time I had this beer was 2013.
I went to the local Lidl upon recommendation looking for 3 Monts...no luck. I may have to cross over into France and look for it there - Cheers!
Kettlehead Mo-Ella session NEIPA. Really tasty.
My father-in-law and I drove the 3.5 hours from his home base in Bettendorf, IA to Decorah, IA for the sole purpose of visiting Toppling Goliath.
Lots of snow-covered farmland along the way.
But also some nice scenery as well.
Gotta love the name of this road (Bierman Road)
Arriving at Decorah. Notice the Norwegian flag. The place feels much more like Minnesota than Iowa (the border is just a dozen miles to the north).
Enjoying some tasty beers (in order of appearance): King Sue, Double Dry Hopped PseudoSue and Supa Sumo. Absolutely amazing all of them.
Interesting ceiling decoration at the tap room.
The sign outside the taproom.
From late last eve, but I wanted to give a shoutout to @Gushue3 for the great extra. First tick ever from Bissell, split it with my wife.
Wild Onion Drago and GummyBuddy, the exclusive Iron & Glass collab with Noon Whistle. It's freaking good.
Scotch Ale 10% ABV and that is one of the brewers Nate, does he look like a brewer or what?
Kees Export Porter 1750.
Label reads 'Porter' but the commercial description speaks of a heavy 'Imperial Russian Stout', brewed according to an English recipe dating back to 1750 (exported to Russia in those days).
Baseball Winter Meetings and Super Session #8
Brewed with cucumber, which feels a little harsh. Crisp and refreshing otherwise, with a hint of citrus. More of a summer beer, really.
Picked this up in Florida last week. cheers
Uppsala Brygghus Hopsession APA
Happy thursday ba. Last day in NOLA and I’m hitting up urban south brewery,
Starting w/ finial dipa. Decent with lots of juicy citrus and fruit. Think I prefer holly roller but it’s not bad.
It's rare that you actually get vanilla, but by golly this stuff has vanilla in it.
@Greywulfken was enjoying so much last night, I couldn't resist cracking one today.
