I’ve got a Helles from Van Henion today and if you don’t know: I’m a fan if Helles style beers. But they rarely seem to match my standards.
This one is starting off well, with a sourdough nose and I really like that.
Unfortunately the flavors don’t quite match up. There’s hardly any breadiness in this beer and actually it’s a little sweet. It finishes fairly well; not too crisp but crisp enough and with a hop bite that’s just strong enough to show up.
I don’t think I can recommend it, though. It just doesn’t have the kind of flavor profile throughout that I like.
I don’t really have much else to say this week. I miss going to pubs and being around people. I’ve been a little more isolated and bored than usual so I’m feeling that a bit.
And really, the biggest thing to talk about is what a dumb son of a bitch Joe Rogan is.
Oh, I know; as one of the leaders of the Great White Grift, he doesn’t care what I think. He doesn’t care about what anybody thinks-he cares about getting paid. He’ll say whatever it takes to get attention and dollars, a fine example of the problems with dealing with a bullshitter.
He’ll say whatever, so long as his bank account gets fat. In this respect, he’s no different than Kyrsten Sinema or Joe Manchin; all three of them are getting people killed so they can get rich and there’s no consequence for their bullshit.
On the other hand, that this is the big deal of the week is kinda nice. I can just say: fuck these assholes and move on.
