Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
By scot in 365 Days of American Craft Beer on Tuesday, March 1st, 2011
Each night when I stare into the refrigerator, that is the time of judgment: the time that one American craft beer is going to be chosen. I don’t have much time to think of this during the day as I am busy at work. And, to be honest, I almost completely forget from day-to-day what is stored away in the ice box. Maybe that makes the process a little bit more exciting or you could say I have a horrible memory.
Either way, this might be my sanity check for having a different American craft beer each day for 365 straight. To be honest, there are times I actually have no interest in having to review a beer. I hope that isn’t blasphemy. 😉 Having a beer for a quarter of the year straight might not sound fantastic or difficult but there a just those days that a glass of water and a hoops game is all I really need, not to mention my gut.
Eastside Dark from Lakefront Brewery was the choice of the evening. I thought that the aroma and taste were a bit light with the aroma being ridiculously so. The taste was a little stronger but after a few sips I started to get this tart after taste that just lingered. I didn’t seem like it had a place in a German lager. I would have this beer again as it had been in the cellar for close to a year, so I would want to give it a fair shot with a fresh one. Enjoy!
