On this Christmas Day, I am drinking Holy Mountain’s hoppy Pilsner, Drinking The Cup of Judgement.
Shouldn’t it be ‘Drinking from the Cup of Judgement’? C’mon, folks.
Either way, you can’t say that Holy Mountain is going for subtle with their names.
And….it’s a hoppy Pilsner. If that’s what you’re in the mood for, then the hop bite on the finish is for you, as it’s disproportionate to the beer itself. There’s a little toastiness there as well, which is a surprise because I notice it after the bitterness.
But, I think that’s it for today.
Except for this: wherever you are, whatever is going on, I hope the Christmas Day was nice for you-regardless if Christmas is a holiday for you or not. Regardless if the day itself frequently is burdensome.
Our long year has had it’s longest night. Let’s hope for some daytime soon.
Today’s second pint goes to the Energy Trust of Oregon.
