I think I hit mental rock bottom this afternoon. I’ve been losing project details lately -- too much happening too fast -- and I had no idea what time an event I’m planning was scheduled for later this week. Nothing I had in writing agreed on a time for this event and I’ve been inadvertently telling various people different times. I actually had to call the host venue and ask what time they had in their schedule. Like I said, mental rock bottom. The good thing is that it seems to have jumpstarted my brain again so I have that going for me. Has anyone else had something like this happen? I’ll admit I feel a bit loony over it.
It seems to have been a nice -- albeit windy -- day today. In honor of that, I’m opening a Bell’s Oberon Ale. Described on the label as an American wheat ale with the color and scent of a summer afternoon. (pause for beer sniffing) Indeed it does -- a bit wheaty, a bit citrusy. Is it the color of a summer afternoon? Maybe a late afternoon summer. It’s a deep golden hue, slightly cloudy with a moderate head that’s leaving lots of lacing in my glass.
The flavor is spicy hops but they aren’t overpowering. There’s the taste of citrus and bread. With a relatively low ABV (at least for me) of 5.8% ABV, this says summer afternoon drinking to me.
I wish the sun was still up. This Oberon makes me want to kick up my feet and chill on the deck. And on that note, I bid you cheers for the evening!
