Three additions this week! What is happening to me. Another beer from Illinois that I stumbled across whilst looking for something interesting. Nothing much to say about this to start with since there isn’t very much information around about it – I have read suggestions that it might even be brewed by Goose Island; there isn’t even a mention of the alc content. Is this even a beer…
The Beer: ??% abv; very dark brown; a sweet malted aroma; subtle bitterness combined with a roasted malt element, flat – as in there is little in the way of gas (carbonisation); mellow roasted aftertaste.
My wife suggested that this is a “woman’s beer” as in it would appeal to a woman’s palate more – well she liked more than I did, so I do not know whether this proves it, nor do I know what a “woman’s beer” actually is, so I am not even going to get into this area. Rather like a lot of the Tmavy beers in Czech Republic. After all this “unknown” was it worth it? Probably not, although my wife has now found a dark beer that she really likes, so I supposed in this respect it was a good find. And yes, it is in a lager glass, I stand somewhat ashamed to only have one glass at the moment, this will be rectified sooner rather than later 😦
