Not much blab or life to go along with this beer, but I can setup the event which gave me the opportunity to drink (not that I always need a reason).
A few nights ago I decided I wanted to eat Langostino Taco’s and have my buddy Jerry come over to partake. But, I didn’t check on the amount of food I had to serve. I should probably think about checking if I have food before inviting people over to eat. Alas, one taco each due to not enough Langostino and not enough tortillas. *smacks head* At any rate, the taco’s were pretty tasty and I left the mess for the wife to clean up.
I still don’t have a camera either, so I stole this image of the brew from Beer and Microbrews without their consent (please don’t tell on me!).

The beer (as you can see in the stolen photograph) pours a hazy golden color. I drank it from a pint glass and paired it with the taco’s because I wanted to. I don’t know jack about pairing beers, but this seemed like it’d work and it did. It had a nice thick porous head on it and stuck to the glass quite well.
It’s scent had a very mild tone. It had some of typical Pale Ale smells such as bread, yeast and a slight smell of citrus from the hops.
The feel of the beer was light and mild. It didn’t have much character to it except for a bit of dryness.
The flavor was quite mild, yet enjoyable. It had a bit of bitterness and citrus from the hops and a mild sweet taste from the malt. Due to it’s low alcohol content, mild feel and citrus hints it seemed to me to be a nice summer beer while BBQing some kabobs in the backyard.
My buddy Brad grabbed a couple when he came over after dinner and really enjoyed it, probably a bit more than I did… Not that I didn’t enjoy this brew, he just really seemed to like it a lot!
(I’m going to try a rating system soon, I just gotta come up with it. So right now I’ll make one without any system.)
A44^ (This means it’s a good beer)
