Today’s second pint goes to Donate Ayuda: Puerto Rico because they still don’t have power and we shouldn’t forget those Americans.
Continuing with the review of the winter ales: Bridgeport’s Ebenezer Ale. Sweet nose, very subtle brown sugar note happening. Again, another beautiful deep red color with some near translucence when I hold it up to the light.
The flavors aren’t too bold: there’s a little cinnamon finish, but there’s also a little bit of a red wine in the mouth with some drying effects. It doesn’t feel heavy or dense, but I get the sensation that there are more flavors that I am just missing: there’s a definite warmth coming from this beer that I’m trying to pinpoint. I almost get a hint of cherry coming from this beer; it’s got some nice flavors going on and I think I like this beer a bit more than Deschutes’ Jubelale.
From the mouths of experts. There’s some wisdom, a little fortune telling, a little business moxie going on there. Mostly a fun read.
But I’m just going to get ahead of things and say no to lactose imbued IPAs and Sour/IPA concoctions. They might be for someone else and I’ll certainly taste one, but I ain’t paying for that. Those flavors just don’t seem like they mesh together.
As for me, I’m looking forward to continuing this blog, hopefully improving the writing here and elsewhere, and hitting the ten year mark this April!
