Deep Cover Brown Ale

I'm still getting over the Eagles pathetic performance and loss to the Raiders on Sunday. And it's not like the Raiders had a super-stud day and put up 45 points. Nope 13-9 final score. Three field goals just doesn't cut it!

One interesting twist with this game was that one of my sister's friends and a kid from our home town plays for the Raiders in a specialty role. However, in that role, fuck ups are very noticeable and can potentially cost points. So that's the dilemna. Do I straight up root for the Eagles blindly? Should I proactively root for this kid to make a mistake that costs his team points, but could cost him his job, too? That's what I'd do if I didn't have any connection at all. Well, for me, I guess the only way you pick town over your team is if you're financially linked, which I'm not. (Then some more rationalization.) Besides, he's eight years younger and I really don't know him anyway, although I used to have a huge crush on his sister. Does that count?

I just started drinking Deep Cover Brown Ale brewed by Left Hand Brewing Company in Longmont, Colorado. The label says it was bottled 10/08/08 so over a year ago. Lots of chocolate and caramel on the nose, a rich and sweet aroma. The body is not nearly as thick as the aroma would lead you to believe. You will taste malty and caramel flavors to start, with a large amount of roasted flavors as well. Hops are definitely present and keep this beer nicely balanced and not overly sweet. Medium body, medium carbonation, and you finish with a hint of chocolate left on your palate. Nice beer, simple and tasty.
