Despite swearing that I was spending today in a coma in my pajamas, I managed to get a ridiculous number of things done. The contractor finished up the latest round of work at our house. I found a new little project for myself that took me to Lowe's and we swung by Ikea in search of new glassware, ended up with new lanterns and a good idea for a replacement couch.
The afternoon ended at TJ's and me finding a tasty beer from Cigar City Brewing. Hotter than Helles is a Munich style lager. It poured a cloudy lemon-yellow shade of beer with a thin head. It smelled bready and grainy. The flavor was surprisingly sweet, malt and very smooth. I noted faint hints of orange undertones. It was very quenching and clean. I could have put a few of them back.
