Nebraska Wick For Brains

I finally have two days off in a row. Yesterday, the other half and I went to Forgotten Boardwalk brewery in Cherry Hill. On Sundays, they have free skee ball and the other half and I played at least 10 games. We had some good beer there too. Speaking of beer, let’s see how this pumpkin beer was.

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Located in Papillion’s hoppin’ Shadow Lake Town Centre, Nebraska Brewing Company is a relaxed dining destination complemented by incredible, fresh handcrafted ales. Locally owned and operated, it’s our aim to share our passion for beer and food with everyone who walks through the door. When your stomach’s growling and you’re feelin’ parched, head to Nebraska Brewing Company for casual American fare, a full bar, and a great time. Our knowledgeable staff will assist you in creating the perfect beer and food combination.  Oh, and on your way out, be sure to grab a growler of one (or two) of our fine ales.”

Random: Phillip Rivers killed my fantasy team this week with his craptastic performance.

This brew poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass, but a crown on top of the body. The body was a slightly hazy copper color with generous carbonation. The nose had caramel malt and cinnamon. The taste was a letdown. It had a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg. There was some allspice too, but no pumpkin notes. The body was thin and the carbonation was intense. It had a very lengthy spicy finish. This was $2.59 for a can, which wasn’t crazy expensive, but this pumpkin beer didn’t bring much to the table. It was very spicy, but needed some more pumpkin or squash notes to be truly successful. I wouldn’t have this one again.
