Mendocino Autumn Lager

Went grocery shopping at Publix this morning. It rained pretty hard on the way over, the few miles or so. As I was walking in the front door, another lady was also arriving and started to make small talk. Her main point was mostly a complaint about elderly drivers, especially in the rain. Funniest thing is that she is elderly! I just agreed and nodded and walked my own way.

Christmas tree and decorations going up right now as I type. My kids have been bugging us and are super excited to do it! I love our fake 9.5 foot tree that we've had for the past 5 years. It's tall, looks real, is easy to put together, has the lights already strung on it, AND I already own it. Real trees are awesome, and smell great too. But in Florida they are too expensive and not fresh enough and the needles start falling off too soon. If I ever get out of here (Florida), I'd love to revert back to real trees.

Beer time. This afternoon I'm starting with Mendocino Autumn Lager brewed by Mendocino Brewing Company in Saratoga Springs, New York. Perfect for the Christmastime. The bottle says Limited Edition. The aroma is fruity with some grainy scents and a touch of hops, too. Flavors start out on the lightly sweet side, with caramel and malt and some noticeable spiciness up front. Smooth so far. There are also some toasted bread flavors. A hit of hops will grab your attention, but just briefly and not bitterly. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry finish, easy drinker. This is a pretty decent beer to check out!
