I am sore today. I really went all out at the gym today and then came home and decided it was too nice to stay inside. So, despite the fact that my calves were already getting sore from my workout, I went out for a run. I think that I’m definitely going to regret this tomorrow. I took a nice warm shower and hopefully loosened some muscles up. Well, onto the beer. Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day, I may actually have more than one tonight.
Style: American Amber/Red Lager
Trivia: According to wikipedia, “A vinyl compound is any organic compound that contains a vinyl group (Preferred IUPAC name ethenyl). Vinyl groups (formula −CH=CH2) are derivatives of ethene, CH2=CH2, with one hydrogen atom replaced with some other group. An industrially important example is vinyl chloride, precursor to PVC, a plastic commonly known as ‘vinyl.’ Vinyl groups are alkene derivatives: Primary alkenes are made of vinyl groups. On a carbon skeleton, sp2-hybridized carbons or positions are often called vinylic. Allyls and acrylates contain vinyl groups.”
Random: I’ve been to Ireland twice and at a certain point, I was hellbent on moving there.
The brew poured with a half a finger white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body of the brew was a deep and slightly cloudy chestnut-brown. There was lots of active carbonation. The nose of the brew had some roasted malts and not much else. The first sip is definitely a bit on the nutty side with a bit of maltiness but it was just very simple. The finish was a little metallic. The beer was a bit thicker than I expected. I wish I had more to say, but this was just a really a boring beer. I could easily put away a few of these with no problem, but I wouldn’t want to if I had other options.
