(7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5)

Released for “Beer and a Band III” in conjunction with Black Pistol Fire. No, I’ve never heard of them either, but their “Pick Your Poison” single is on iTunes so I’m queueing it up now. … And it’s done. I’m gonna say I have the same reaction to the beer, as to the single: it’s OK, but not particularly memorable. (The single is Lenny Kravitz meets White Stripes. The beer is a bit like Pesky Pig.) But, as I’ve said before, I really like the idea of pairing beer and music, so definite bonus points there. You could definitely do worse. (14/20)
