Light, smooth and a bit of a bready flavor, Firemans #4 from Real Ale is very easy to drink. It would be good to cool off with on a hot summer day. This blonde ale is somewhat similar in flavor to Kona Longboard even though this is an ale while Longboard is a lager.
Fat Tire is an amber ale and Lindsay’s self-proclaimed first beer love. It’s a fairly standard amber ale with a hint of spice. Definitely one I could buy a six pack of and have a few at one time. It also just so happened that my TRON and TRON: Legacy Blu-Rays came in the mail… → Read More
Usually I don’t go for a hoppy beer….but this is a decent ale from Indiana brewer Three Floyds.
When Scott posted his Kona Longboard review, I realized I never posted about my Kona Fire Rock. Found this at a bar in NYC and knew I had to try it since I’ve seen it at the menu at the Polynesian. It’s a beautiful copper/orange color and slightly sweet. Slightly hoppy with a hint of… → Read More
The other beer I drank at Chimes East was Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan. Lazy Magnolia is a brewery in Kiln, Mississippi whose brews have started appearing more frequently in Louisiana. Described as a nut brown ale, Lazy Magnolia claims this is the only beer in the world made with whole roasted pecans. Southern Pecan was… → Read More
On Saturday night, my wife, sister-in-law and I went to Chimes East in Baton Rouge after the kids went to bed. Chimes East is the second location of The Chimes, a bar and restaurant just outside the north gates of LSU. First up this night was Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale, a fairly good 7.2% American… → Read More
Yesterday after work I met Ryan at the Flying Saucer in Houston for dinner and beer. I had this very dark brew called Black Metal by Jester King. The color certainly lives up to its name; even the head was a dark brown that mostly dissipated before I took this photo. Lots of coffee flavor in… → Read More
Full Moon Pale Rye Ale is the third and final beer in the Real Ale sampler pack. Unexpectedly, this tastes more like an IPA than a pale ale. Spicy hops coupled with a bready rye taste make this a nice beer to drink. I enjoyed this much more than the Rio Blanco Pale Ale I… → Read More
Tonight I’m drinking the second of three beers in the Real Ale sampler: Rio Blanco Pale Ale. Smooth, kinda light, the flavor is a bit lacking though. Drinkable, but nowhere near something like a Widmer Drifter. A bit disappointed with the White River.
No Irish beer tonight unfortunately but I am drinking from an Irish glass (my parents got a pair of them for me when they visited Ireland). Instead I present Brewhouse Brown Ale, the first of three Real Ale brews from the sampler pack I mentioned in the Sisyphus article. I sometimes use Abita beers as… → Read More
