What to have for the day Obama gets to grasp the brass ring? Something from a blue state, that's obvious. And something that doesn't look like one of those designer beers. And one with a name that speaks to hyperbolic hope. High and Mighty's Beer of the Gods passes the test on all counts.
At a pleasant and prudent 4.5%, this take on "kolsch meets alt" works wonders. The beer pours a slight lemony light amber with a snow white billowy foamy head. There is plenty of steely-twiggy hopping going on as well as a lighter yet creamy touch of malt all within a fresh moreish body. In the malt there is light plum and apple and plenty of grainy texture. A great session beer.
Ridiculously good value at $5.50 for a 22 ounce bomber. BAers are oddly not amused.
