Sunny today, despite being breezy and cool, so I figured I had to make the most of it, even if it is only barely shirt sleeve weather. The beer’s about as disappointing as the weather, coming across as a commercial pale lager with a hint of Goose Island hops. Pretty much a master course in how not to do Session Ales, courtesy of the Great Satan. I broke my ABInBev boycott for this? Oh well, at least I bought only the one… (11/20)
