Look, I went into this… well… I’d be lying if I said “optimistically”. “Less deeply cynical than my experience has indicated I should’ve,” perhaps? I mean, come on, they’ve been brewing for over a century, you’d figure that somebody at some point might’ve accidentally brewed something that didn’t suck. Y’know, blind hogs, truffles, and all that. Sure, it’s a decent-looking beer. And, OK, it’s marginally better than their normal swill. But that’s about as far as it goes. (12/20)
