So, it seems that fall is nigh upon us once more, what with the chilly nights, shorter days, school buses on the roads, and rich, malty, flavorful beers in the coolers of our local b double e double r u-n. Since I work part-time in a shop that prides itself on carrying the more diverse and eclictic out there, I’ve got a few new ones to try.
So far, I’ve had the Brooklyn, Summit, and Great Lakes. I’ve got to go with the Great Lakes. The Brooklyn is technically masterful, as per usual, but lacks a certain something. Too precise, perhaps. The Summit is good, but kinda clean, low in flavor. Good for a long session, perhaps, as it’s easy to drink, but kinda boring as a one timer. The GL is smooth, with just the right hop balance.
Still to come- the Bells, and the German imports. And one or two I can’t recall at this point.
So, what’s your 'fest choice?
