I picked up "Red Oval" from Trader Joes, because (1) it was cheap, and (2) I thought that anything that Trader Joes sells must be tasty. That logic is false - tastes like a mixture of apple cider and battery fluid.
OT - What are you drinking tonight?
Hazed and Infused, good ole Colorado beer :)
Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. First time I have had pumpkin beer. It is... interesting.
Like pumpkin beer but I just had this particular one this week and liked it. Perhaps because Dogfish Head goes so over the top with their flavoring that it actually tasted like pumpkin pie, rather than the typical pumpkin beer. most of them I find to be kind of watery and half-assed, kind of a cheap excuse to exploit the season.
I've had a lot more to say on this thread than I ever have on anything football-related. Hmm...
Iced tea. I gotta keep sharp or my kid will whup my ass in Dominion.
Speyburn 10yr Single Malt
I like an ice cube or two in scotch/bourbon but a lot of my whiskey-snob friends are opposed to it.
I usually toss an ice cube in there. I like my booze a little chilled. Also, the melting ice dilutes the liquor a bit and opens up the flavors. It sounds snobby, but I prefer not getting punched in the mouth.
My approach too. A little bit of chill and water so I'm thinking about something besides having my face burned off by the alcohol.
PBR was on sale and I didn't get my student loan check yet. It could be worse.
Magic Hat H.I.P.A. which I picked up because it was one of the only decent beers the bodega offered. Better than I expected; more taste than the typical Magic Hat product. Now moving on to the Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, which is a personal favorite.
Natty Lite damn cheap college parties.
- sent from some random laptop at this lame party. Who bumps Acoustic music over a stereo while playing beer pong??
India Amber Ale - Built like an IPA but with amber malt.
I know a little bit about beer brewing but not much - how is an amber malt distinguished from a typical malt? (It's all barley, right? Brewers talk a lot about the different kinds of hops they use, but not so much about varieties of barley.) And then what do you mean about being built like an IPA - does that refer to hop levels, alcohol levels, something else?
Good ol' Bud Light
the Denard kool-aid
Welcome to college, muh fugga
Dirty Bastard nice scotch style ale with shot of Makers Mark in bottom of iced mug. nice way to unwind after long week on the road.
