I was going to begin this post by writing about my love of the word scuttlebutt, but decided nothing I could write would compare to this definition from the Scuttlebutt Brewing Company's website. I'm also not feeling very motivated today. Work is work and I would much rather be retired right now. So there's that...
Anyway I found the Scuttlebutt Amber Ale at The Brooklyn Oyster House in Seattle. It accompanied a few dozen oysters quite well.
It was a lovely and deep shade of amber with a thin head. It smelled of caramel malts and the taste was full and round. The caramel rings through and there is just a hint of earthy hop at the finish.
