    Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    I enjoyed the American PA from theRight Brain Brewery in Traverse City, MI. I did not enjoy the Northern Hawk Owl Amber.

    Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    A couple of Little Kings Cream Ales, tonight. Firstly, I gotta carbo-load for the Peachtree Road Race, tomorrow. Secondly, I'm hoping to channel my previous fitness level from 30 years ago, when I used to drink these regularly in college. I mean, there are 60,000 people running this thing, and I have to at least finish ahead of Troyce!

    After being on a hop high for the last few weeks I came back down with an Anchor Steam. It was delightful and kept the palate clean for some Rose with dinner and S-W after.

    Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    Given it is the 4th I thought I would pull out a special brew... Firestone Walker Abacus.
    This beer looks like motor oil in the glass with virtually no head.. I assume due to an ABV of 13%!!! It is very unique and has a Pedro Jimenez sherry quality to it. Very raisiny... dried dark fruits. It is complex as flavors of coconut, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and citrus all drift in and out. Very little carbonation here. This is a very sweet beer that I find a bit unusual. It is a bit thin in mouth feel even though it is high alcohol??
    To me it is unbalanced with far too much sweetness with little to balance it. I am a FW fan but this IMO is lacking.

    Old Chubb courtesy my buddy Cliff. Excellent, rich Scots-style ale.

    Soooo happy to get some fresh New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat in me this weekend while up in Wisconsin. Also the NG IIPA and Smoked Rye, as well as Bell's Cerise and Tyranena Rocky's Revenge, a brown ale that is partly finished in bourbon barrels.

    Drinking a Bell's Two Hearted Ale while eating salmon this evening. The salmon has some spice to it, and the Bell's actually cuts it nicely.

    It's been the Leinie's Summer Shandy the last two nights. Not anything special, but a great outdoor beer on vacation.
