Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
By scot in 365 Days of American Craft Beer on Monday, March 28th, 2011
Sometimes an American craft beer on a Sunday is warranted after a weekend of hard work in the yard and/or around the house. Other times, like this Sunday for me, that I was exhausted after a day of home brewing and weekend of in-laws, causing me to be less than ready for a beer.
Unfortunately Fuel Cafe by Lakefront Brewery was the beer chosen for review #117. I sort of felt sorry for it as I knew I wasn’t in the mood.
In spite of that, I found the beer to be on solid ground: nothing earth shattering great about but definitely nothing wrong with the beer either. I would put it in the average category and thought that maybe the coffee should be more pronounced. The bottle I had though was four months old and I don’t know if coffee aroma/flavor starts to fall out as quickly or quicker than hops. Either way I would have it again and liked the creaminess. Enjoy!
Aroma: 6, Taste: 8, Look: 9, Drinkability: 7, Overall: 7.3
Useless Fact: Denver, Colorado lays claim to the invention of the cheeseburger.
