Yesterday we ran another 5k. It went well and the shin splints I had worried about didn’t hurt at all. I ran with Melissa again, so I wasn’t pushing myself. Next 5k I’m running my own pace, which should be interesting.
Last night we had friends Adam and Elina over for some dinner and cards. Melissa made vegan risotto, garlic bread, and roasted broccoli. I made vegan chocolate chip cookies. Everything was damn tasty. Adam and I partook in some beerage while waiting for dinner to be finished.
We co-reviewed some Sixpoint Bengali Tiger (review coming tomorrow) and this Southern Tier Farmer’s Tan. I had high hopes for the Farmer’s Tan; everything I try from Southern Tier that comes in a bomber I like, however everything from the brewery that comes in 120z bottles I don’t. Weird, eh?
The Farmer’s Tan was piny with a giant malty backbone. It’s defined as a pale lager and registers in at a whopping 8.6% ABV.
Adam thought it was “scary drinkable” given the ABV. He really liked the beer overall.
I wasn’t let down and thoroughly enjoyed the beer as well. It’s perfectly balanced, resulting in bitter and sweet flavors arm-wrestling on your tongue – bitter, sweet, bitter, sweet, bitter….
