Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

Time flies by so quickly. I remember tasting and reviewing Cubano-Style Espresso by Cigar City Brewing for 365 American craft beers in 365 days like it yesterday but after looking back, it has already been eight months.
A nice, light American Brown Ale base shares the beer presence with espresso beans. Neither is bold but well balanced, making a nice experience. I think I would have rated this one a bit higher this time around though. Tasting is subjective, many variables play their way into the experience, there is no guarantee we will have the sames sensory explosion each and every time, even with the same American craft beer.
This will only be the first of a couple American craft beers this evening. The next will participate in the families Friday night movie night over a couple of bags of freshly popped and hot popcorn. Enjoy!
Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 7 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 8 (35%), Overall: 7.9
Useless Fact: Through the Italian Renaissance flourished in Rome, not a single Renaissance artist, sculptor, or musician of any stature was born in that city. During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, practically all architects, painters, sculptors, and musicians were imported to Rome. When they had completed their projects, they almost always departed.
