Nothing like a beer review before lunch to get the day started! I'm headed to State College to enjoy some relaxation today and a practice football game tomorrow - although the tailgate will be real, I assure you. Therefore, I'm getting my writing done while I can. The short version, then:
Today's review is a bottle of Otto, a smoked ale from Victory Brewing that's been in the fridge for what seems like an eternity. In the glass, you see a dark, chocolate brown color with a thin, off white head. There's a nice aroma of smoked malts, and the taste is clean, with a good bit of smoke and a somewhat meaty characteristic (but not in a bad way). Thankfully not burnt or coffee, as those are flavors I don't tend to enjoy. There's some bitterness from the hops, but you're drinking this one for the toasted malt. Would pair well with sausages and mustard, I'd say. Not a beer I'd reach for on a regular basis, but well done.
|With matching glass. OH YOU FANCY, HUH?|
Smoked beer? Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, with the legendary Tracks of My Tears. Enjoy your weekend friends. I'll miss you!
