    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking - Summer 2012

    Stopped at a local brick & mortar on the way home to see what's new and I find something old.
    Two 4-paks of Arcadia Hop Rocket made their way home with me and only 5 are left.

    Saranac Rye IPA, "We've stepped away from the mold of typical IPA's and selected premium Rye Malt and a unique mix of spicy hops..."

    Tastes like a good IPA.

    Magic Hat #9. This beer improves after it warms a bit. I pulled two from the fridge at the same time and the second bottle was much better than the first.

    Amen to that. Though mine is already 23 days old, so it's lost all of its hops.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking - Summer 2012

    Bought a 6-pack of Oskar Blues "Mama's Little Pils." After one can, I'm underwhelmed. It's definitely not bad, but it falls into a middle ground between the crispness I like in Czechvar and the cloying, corny sweetness I don't like in cheaper offerings like Simpler Times Pilsner (hey -- at 50 cents a can it was worth a try). Basically, the Oskar Blues has no defining characteristics. Plus, it's got a pretty funky finish and aftertaste.

    I haven't developed a taste for very hoppy beers. I'd say Anchor Steam Beer nails the sort of bitterness I enjoy. But I've been looking for a domestic pilsner to replace Anchor Steam as my summer go-to. Does anyone have any suggestions for a craft pilsner or something similar that's nationally available (or at least near Santa Barbara, CA)?

    Thanks

    Ran through what a buddy termed my "best of summer" flight yester-eve -- New Glarus Spotted Cow, Bells Oberon, Arcadia Whitsun and Two Brothers Ebel's Weiss.

    Then for a night cap, some delicious Boulevard Rye-on-Rye.

    Those Boulevard beers ain't too shabby. I had never even heard of Boulevard until earlier this year but I've enjoyed everything I've had so far.
