Picked this up for 3.79 USD for 650 ml over the other side. A big beige merengue head, leaving rings of foam rather than lace. A heavy layer of lime rind hops cuts though rich cream raisin crystal malt with a sugar cookie biscuity thing. A hint of smoke maybe? A nice red amber. A really good beer. Why would Rouge not be your everyday beer if you lived in the USA? This one got me through West Wing and right into Queer Eye.
Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.
Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."
Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."
