After posting last night about Liberty Ale, one of the guys I met on another beer social network gave me some solicited feedback on my blog here. He suggested that I was being too vague in my descriptions of the beers I am writing about. Now this guy is an expert and a certified beer judge, and I am ALWAYS open to non-Anonymous critiques--I ask for them.
But while I totally see his point about being vague when I am saying that the beer is delicious and has a great smell, I also am not willing to take things to the extreme of beer snobbery as I see it. When we get to the "carmelized hoppy frothy head" type shit, well, that's exactly what my blog's introduction (see header under title) says I am against and will not become. I will try, however, as I agree it's important, to be a little more descriptive.
Most of all, I want to be entertaining, sarcastic, witty, but still provide value to my readers, all 0 of you (after subtracting my mom, the beer judge I begged to come over, and some geek from work that I asked how to make blogger recognize the domain I bought--the last one's a joke in case he is an actual reader).
So onward and upward. Anchor Porter. I am beginning to love this brewery, as each one gets better. Anchor Porter is a thick and rich beer, great flavors, and as I am turning a new half leaf, there seems to be something smokey and a little burned (but in a good way) to this. Even the after-burp tastes good. Really, this beer is pretty sweet (not sweet like, say, ice cream, but sweet like the Flyers scoring a goal against the Red Wings).
Tomorrow (or when I can, but soon): the best Sixer. I am not talking Dr. J Julius Erving here, but what I want to put in that empty six pack holder that Winn-Dixie liquor lets you fill up with whatever is on the shelf. (And BTW, what I do anyway at Publix even without the special holder, although I try to stay within one brewery or at least pick the most expensive holder and trade down, if you know what I mean). Anyway, I am Publix's best customer ever. And my kids have never broken anything incredibly, so (let me give them another link and plug) I think they find me valuable. Especially when I win Powerball tonight that I bought from their store--big payday for them too.
Ok. The long rant is over.
