Bridgeport Kingpin Double Red Ale.  Decided to take a chance on it this afternoon in the absence of Two Hearted on the store shelf.  :\

It's pretty decent.  But I wanted that Two Hearted.

Ok, quick report before we get to far into this... Personally I like it.  There is a honey flavor but it is not overpowering.  Also I like that is doesn't taste like honey syrup poured into a whiskey bottle.  Have only tried it on the straight, and on the rocks so can't help with any mixing ideas.

If any thoughts for mixers let me know I will NOT be finishing this bottle tonight.

On a project in [REDACTED], NC. Started with Fat Tire draft, went to Foster's oil cans (on special), then High Life Light. Don't knock it til you try it.

Oh High Life Lite.  I enjoyed many of those in my undergrad years.  Not too bad for the price.  Tonight I am working on a few Leinenkugel's Original.  Very cheap here in Wisconsin!

This is an aggressive ale. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth. We would suggest that you stick to safer and more familiar territory–maybe something with a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at convincing you it’s made in a little brewery, or one that implies that their tasteless fizzy yellow beverage will give you more sex appeal. Perhaps you think multi-million dollar ad campaigns make things taste better.

7th year wedding anniversary. I started with a 24 oz Mike's Hard Cranbery Lemonade. Went to dinner and had a rum pineapple foo-foo drink. Then to the bar to split a bottle of white sangria. Now at home with a Sierra Nevada IPA.
