The 2 new entries have nice color! I like an amber ale that has a definite hop presence.

BC, I'll gladly hand over the camera in exchange for free beer! :lol:

I was in Houston TX over the weekend to visit a friend. On Saturday we stopped by Saint Arnold's brewery. Good tour and very good beer. Here I am paying homage to Saint Arnold after the tour. :cheers:

Seems to me one cannot go wrong with the monastic type beers and ales, Wiseguy. I bet that was great experience.

Then I am persuaded you would have really enjoyed this one, Brad. Made me wonder what their official pales were like. Oh yes-- especially with such a "lofty" beer!
Got beer???

Guess it's been a while since I posted another beer, so here's one for you. I'm thinking that many of you have "been there done that" with this Canadian Moosehead lager that comes from out of New Brunswick???

I have a history with it. In the early '80's, it used to be one of my favs. Then it seems like overnight the formula changed or they brewed it differently, and it lost appeal to me. Recently however, I tried it again, and it regained it's appeal to me. Light bodied, clean and crisp-- a mighty pleasing party or cueing beer. I can drink several of these without feeling regrettably intoxicated.

I can see this pairing really well with pizza or hamburgers especially. ImageImage

I haven't had a Moosehead in a long time. I try to buy local beers as much as possible but maybe I should give it a try again.

I never heard of Moosehead I got to try it. Lately I been drinking homebrew I still have some Irish Red Ale and some Jalapeno Saison at home. I'm one of those beer geeks that changes his beer with the season so I plan on brewing some stouts pretty soon. Anyone living in the north east should try to pick up some Troegs mad elf 11% ABV my favorite beer for the holidays.

I've been drinking this beer on occasion for 26 years and counting. For those who haven't tried it yet, beercuer is right - it's worth a try.

And yes - it seems they change the recipe from time to time but it's good now. I stopped drinking it for a while when they changed the recipe but now they seem to have changed it again. I suspect it happens every time the brewery changes hands. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Currently drinking my new recipe.

NW3C-IPA - Northwest Pale Ale with Centennial, Citra, and Cascade hops that I modified to make an IPA (6.1% ABV and nice grape-fruity hop flavors)

Looks good Trollby. I was suppose to brew some smoked wheat Ale for my winter beer yesterday but I got lazy. I hope I have time to do it next week. :cheers:

That's a nice-looking beer, Trollby! Sounds like it's good and hoppy.

I recently had some Potosi Fiddler Oatmeal Stout and it was pretty good.

I like the color. Does it have any holiday-style flavors?

No Holiday flavors. Basically a hoppy ale. Very crisp and clean flavor on the malt side with the hop bite
