So I’m running on very little sleep. I woke up at 5:15 this morning to go golfing, but this ridiculous non-stop rain stopped me from going. Once I’m up, I’m up for good, so now it’s 10:45pm and my eyes are heavy. I’m also pretty toasted tonight. Among other beers, I had a couple of Flying Dog Horn Dog 12 ouncers. If you’re not informed, these puppies pack a whollop at over 10% ABV each.
Tonight I also had some Saranac Pomegranate Wheat. I wish I had taken notes, as it was the best Saranac I have had yet. Very unique. Who the F makes pomegranate flavored beer?!?! Whatever…it was pretty damn tasty. Best part was when I told my wife to smell it to see how much it smelled like pomegranate (it smelled nothing like fruit, and she gagged on the beer scent) *chuckle*…I’m so evil.
On to the real review though. Saranac Brown Ale.
This bad-boy poured with a ton of head. OK, so 90% of it was a bad pour. In my stupor I basically turned the bottle vertical into my glass. Nonetheless, the head was through and was thick. It’s still hanging around as I type. The lace left over is also thick and reminds me of that fake-ass snow-crap that you spray on your windows during the holiday seasons in order to feel festive.
The taste of the beer is brown. Brown? What?
I’m listening to Atreyu – Becoming the bull. Good times. Wait…back to the taste….
It’s a pretty standard brown ale. Full flavored though. Not a bad beer at all. Dark in color, but not thick at all. Goes down easy, especially after all the beer I’ve had tonight.
WOO! Dragonforce is on the headphones now!
