Ale the nicest smoked amber colour with maybe a pinkish tinge under light cream foam and lace. Cherry juice, pear juice, slightly nutty. Pleasant as the day. Likely a hundred brewers have thought of this when they make an amber, thinking theirs is something like this when theirs is not. This is subtle, complex and unique. It has the sort of subtly that would make me think of Brooklyn except for the tell-tale St. Peter's lightly tangy yeast. One of the LCBO's fall releases.
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."
