So, what, it’s “Kiss Yer Cousin Kentucky Common” because it’s a kissing cousin to that other, California, Common? Yeah, OK, I can see that. It actually starts off pretty similar to Anchor Steam. Not quite as much depth, perhaps – and if you’ve had Anchor Steam, you know that’s not saying much! Still, though, it’s reasonably clean, and the corn (Kentucky, get it?) doesn’t feel like a macro adjunct. But, if you ask me, you coulda called it “Kiss Yer Sister”, because it’s about as exciting as that. (12/20)
