Idle Hands Adelais and Two Roads Via Cordis

Idle Hands Adelais

Happy Sunday-Funday all! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. It has been a good one here, albeit always too short. Luckily, today has been a mostly lazy day, filled with couch-time, football, and my newest and stupidest gaming habit: Megapolis. Tonight the Patriots play on Sunday Night Football, so I’m in for a long evening (assuming I don’t fall asleep on the couch).

As I kill time between now and kickoff, I’m catching up on two old beer reviews which I had been procrastinating about posting. Thus, I give you Idle Hands Adelais and Two Roads Via Cordis.

First off, the Idle Hands Adelais. This is a Kellerbier, which is a rare style here in the states. The style is quite similar to a pilsner, and it drinks easy like one. It packed some moderate hops, with some fresh cut grass flavors. Medium to high carbonation. A decent beer, perhaps enjoyed best during the warmer months.

Two Roads Via Cordis

Next, Two Roads Via Cordis, is a Belgian Pale Ale. Admittedly, I haven’t been in a big mood for Belgian beers in recent months, but picked this up to add some variety into my beer-diet. I was pleasantly surprised, and found it to be mild in terms of Belgian spice level. I picked up some bready notes up front, which melted into subtle spiciness (coriander, clove) in the middle, and finished with a very light bitterness. I enjoyed it, but not enough to buy another bottle. I would, perhaps, buy this on tap though!
