Happy Thanksgiving! Based on the amount of you that didn't show up last Thanksgiving, I'm going to give you a reason to stop by today, a must read series on what not to drink this holiday season, starting today with turkey day. I'll be publishing three reviews today of below average beers I've tasted over the past month. Be sure to take notes! (Oh, and don't bother commenting on the "today" or other time references. I'm not drinking these today. I'm at Magic Kingdom!)

Today I'm drinking Festie brewed by Starr Hill Brewery in Crozet, Virginia. The label depicts a Ferris Wheel with the Starr Hill star as the center structure of it. "Life is a carnival" says the label. Purchase before February, and I'll just guess they mean 2011.

Not much for an aroma, perhaps a little spice is all. Tart and a little sour apple and orange start things off. Bread and grain and caramel and earth. Very manufactured! Nothing is working together at all. Prickly carbonation. Kinda yuck, chewing on an ugly stick of butter. Didn't finish it. Pass every time!
