Here's a change, instead of a wine post, a beer post. I know, I'm crazy. But I'm trying to match food to beverages and posting about it helps. Now first off, a beer this good deserves a bad ass pint glass. Yeah baby. Heh. Ok, this was simply one of the best ales I have ever had. It's a limited edition, of course, which is a bummer because I really want to have it available all the time. It was crisp and fairly mellow, but still slightly warm and nutty with a nice light finish. It was very well balanced. It was a little hoppy, but not very. I personally don't like a really hoppy beer, just so you know. IPAs are generally way to much for me.
This would have been great with the ribs I made, the kielbasa linguine or a nice big slab of steak. It would also compliment strong flavored green veggies like broccoli (so twice as good with that steak recipe), peas or cabbage. It would be a perfect summertime drink, which makes me twice as sad that it's out now. I suppose I could buy a couple and keep them till summer... but really, what are the chances of that working out? Heh.
