Saturday beer tasting proved to be fun. Surprisingly, the beers were good and I’m not a fan of beer. Give me one Corona on a hot day on a beach with a twist of lime and that’s good enough for me. However, yesterday’s tasting may have been a game changer.
My favorite beer of the 11 displayed were #1 and # 6. My hubby’s favorites were #1 and #2. The Burley Oak “Bilsner” is a light, crushable beer that is crisp and refreshing. New Belgium Ben & Jerry’s Collaboration ale contains 6.3% ABV (alcohol by volume). This full-bodied ale has a perfect balance of vanilla and sweetness that makes you scream for ice cream. It’s a very smooth and easy beer to drink. The Founders Scotch ale is actually the strongest version of Scottish Ales. The beer is on the low-end in terms of ABV, which is 4.7%. The aroma is good, with fresh grass notes; fruity hops like melon, strawberry, and kiwi and hints of caramel malts.
I can’t wait until the next week’s tasting!
