Rogue American Amber Ale.
From a can served in a glass
Been drinking my usual stuff all week but just been too tired to post the pix and didn't want the Warden in my ear about taking beer pix.
Pretty fucking crazy week...work of four guys absorbed into me and another guy.
In at 6:45, out at 3:45 and the week went so fast!
So did the two of these I hoisted (from the can, recycled pic of mine)
Then enjoyed this with dinner...one of my damn favorites
And now cracking this unbeknownst gem. Wish I could give the BA I traded to get this the credit he's do because both Straight to Ale beers have been off da heezy!
Glad I snagged multiples of this. Only regret is we didn't get more:
Just picked this up from pipeworks
Enjoyed this fine pale ale after a nice long run. Another delicious offering from Great Divide.
My two favorite passions: golf and good beer. Both equally expensive Good thing the wife and I don't share bank accounts. :-)
A great round with a great beer is fucking incredible.
This beer should ONLY be consumed from this glass:
Bubbly Belgian Red. Yum! Cheers all!
This is some good shit. Cheers
Yeah - Wolftime, baby!
Now this, then heading out to a possessed church in the R'ylehian Forest seeking a batsasquatch.
Have a good weekend everyone... Cheers!
Well I took a chance on these , The bottled was dated 2012E, end date? Mayan calender dated beer? I was worried about this purchase, more so that it might be bad....WRONG! Its a big roasted flavored coffee stout!
I used some high temp glue this afternoon ,,,made it this far on my terracotta smoker lid, kinda did a rush job but,I like it so far, I might get more creative on the pot(of the smoker)the next time around.
I felt like this afterwards .....
Oh, does it need to be like that?!
My phone died, so I won't be uploading my own photo, but...
I'm having this black beauty for the very first time tonight and it's wonderful. And it's also my 100th review! I can drink to that. Cheers, folks!
Hot day in Austin today. Lagunitas IPA paired very well with grilled fresh wild sockeye salmon.
NEBCO's newest double galaxy IPA, Locust Reign. Cheers!!!!
Results are in on the Pilsner Face Off:
#1- Great grassy nose, lots of Pils malt in aroma and palate. Finish is all hops in flavor as well as a solid punch of bitterness. Great see-saw ride between the hops and malt, never lingering too long on one or the other. Classic profile.
#2- Grassy hops and lemon peel on nose, with Pils malt underneath, but not as much as #1. Very balanced at first, with lingering malt flavor. Then hop bitterness grows, before giving way to hop flavor which dominates from then on. Pretty classic profile overall, as well.
#3- Slightly more golden than other two, with the tightest and longest lasting head. The nose is dominated by herbal and spicy hops, maybe some lime peel, with some neutral creamy malt underneath. There is an undercurrent of pear that builds through the glass. The palate is medium bodied, easy drinking, and not as bitter as the other two. The malt profile suggests cara-pils or cara-foam; kind of generic in relation to the other two.
My overall finish is #1, #2, #3. #1 just seems to have it all going on, punchier, and is more interesting to drink.
So, let's see who is who
Honestly, I am surprised. All along I had Prima pegged as #1 , and thought that Sunshine let me down. I will throw out a disclaimer that the Victory 12-pack I used seems to have some age on it (Best before Aug 26), so that could have had an effect. Prima was not as hoppy as I remembered it being; I'll have to get some fresher samples before too long. Saranac just happened to be in the house, and works as a cheap 'lawnmower beer', but just can't hang with the big boys.
Some CCB Jai Alai, 06/27/14 batch...
2012 Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout
Buds needed a break from my IPA binging...my buddie dug this out of the back of my beer fridge...nice choice my little green robot friend...
and now for some yeti humor...
Love a good frittata...I usually make one every week for breakfast!
Love Styx...have seen them several times!
That came out really nice =)
ok let's get this going here...
Almanac Brewing - Farmer's Reserve Citrus by imbibehour, on Flickr
A pic from our last share. Really diggin that Red!
Review revisit Fridays:
All around excellent Kolsch. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/grassy bitterness balances the flavor on the finish. Spot on Kolsch 100%.
Super fresh Boskeun, 3/2014 bottling. Outstanding. Perfect appearance, lasting head and lacing forever. Taste of big lemon, apricot, citrus zest, pear, apple, white grape, candi sugar, honey, bread, herbal, straw, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice spicy bitterness/yeast ester finish; very crisp and smooth for 10%. Great yeast/malt flavor balance.
Nice scotch ale. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, plum, apple, brown sugar, brown bread, light roast, light herbal, and toast/yeast earthiness. Really nice complexity and balance of the dark/bready malt and fruity yeast with light earthy hops. Really needed to be a bit bolder on those malt flavors, but I definitely enjoyed it overall.
Fresh shipment last week. 11/2013 dated. This is still awesome like last time. Big pear, apple, plum, apricot, golden raisin, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Great balance of yeast and pale malt flavors; very crisp and smooth finish for 10.7%. Pale quads are my stuff.
nice view buddy!
That was me. Glad you are enjoying them. Straight to Ale has been doing some really nice work lately. Really fortunate to live near the brewery!
Well done and always fun.
2014 Firestone Walker Parabola.
KBS and a cupcake. The perfect birthday dessert. Cheers!
Yeah, literally a block over the border in Richmond on U.S. 12. The International House of Wine and Cheese, not the best selection but they always have something I can't get in Wisco. Last week was the first time I found Revolution there. Binny's in McHenry always has it.
Spent $800 on a new garage door today, , so I dove into the cellar and pulled this out.
