Microbrew Review Monday

Due to Matrimonial Shenanigans, Chuckles is posting this week:
This Week’s Beer: Foggy Bottom Ale
I bought a six pack of this brew because I have lived in DC for five summers since attaining approved alcohol consumption age and never tried it. The label claims that it is an ‘english style pale ale’ and ‘elegantly hoppy’. Some pale ales have a flavor that requires you brace for impact while raising the bottle, I’m talking about you Sierra Nevada, but I found this to be a beer that is quiet in comparison. The ale did not have any yeast in the bottle, which I have noticed seems popular these days, as if pale ales need to further segregate themselves from any Macrobrew by being cloudy. Yeasty beers tend to go way overboard with a flavor that is less in your face as it is pounding in your face. I found this to be a welcome change, as if the brewers decided to let flavor do the talking. It has a decent flavor without overpowering your chosen appetizer or snack. I would recommend this brew to accompany any indian style curry or even a tikka. On the whole, my current mood has me looking for a beer with subtelty and flavor and this beer has a goodly amount of flavor but all the subtlety of an ox.
Overall Review: Sure
As this is my first beer review on the blog I will clarify my review positions. They are in order of the first being worst: Only if the 30 pack costs less than $10; When there is nothing else; So long as we keep this between us; If the alternative is wine or soda; Sure; Why not?; Sounds good; As long as I haven’t been drinking it every night of the previous week; Any given morning; Even in class or at work.

  1. The phantom post thing is happening again. Maybe I just suck at this whole posting thing. I can mail letters just fine, why can’t I post?
