Half day at work today…sorta. The kind of half day that turns into 60% of a day at work, followed by another 15% working from home. Whatevs. I found a couple of hours to play Dead Rising 2 and kill some zombies. This evening I ran some errands with the wife and then had some dinner at a local Hibachi joint. I had sushi. It SUCKED. Blah….I’m still burping bad sashimi.
Time to put all of that behind us. Beering time. Tonight’s review is Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale. The only other Anderson Valley beer I’ve had is the Barney Flats oatmeal stout, which I actually hated.
Bleck. This beer is not jiving with me. There is something about the smell and taste that is bringing lousy sushi flavors rushing back into my mouth. It’s been over an hour since I finished dinner, and I had some crackers as pallet cleansers.
The flavors are caramel and nuts of some kind. There’s a touch of bitterness helping to balance it out. I honestly think that on any other night I’d probably really enjoy this beer.
Pissed that bad dinner ruined a good beer. Has a bad meal ever ruined a really good beer for you?
