A Good Beer Blog


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."

Very Unique. Starts like an Imperial Stout, ends like a Scotch Ale. Definitely 5 Stars.

Eye: Looks just like used oil; dark brown and opaque; small head; gentle effervescence
Nose: Nice balance of hops and malt; hint of meatiness as in Vegemite
Mouth: Sweet from start to finish; silky smooth; hoppy; mild bitter finish
Verdict: Maybe some fraud between the name and the nature. Not the rugged, heavy strong brew only for seasoned male drinkers, but instead its easy drinkability should appeal to ladies if they get past the name and the colour. It deserves its award. I would defifnitely buy it again

Looks like I just changed the oil in my 1934 Pontiac ! My sons and I love it we are always looking for a cold frosty mug
