Val and I are watching a show that details what happens to tiny house owners after their house is built. We couldn’t live in one of these and I give people a lot of credit who make it work. While watching this, I definitely needed a beer.
Style: American Amber/Red Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “For our new Fat Tire & Friends Collabeeration Pack, we teamed up with Firestone Walker from Paso Robles, Calif. A happily hopified Fat Tire thanks to our California friends. First, they created an assertive hop presence and then they added a lager yeast to the Fat Tire recipe. The result? A hoppy amber lager version of Fat Tire with an amplified American hop aroma and flavor. Time for you to hop on this Fat, too.”
Random: I couldn’t live in a place without a real toilet.
The beer poured with a three finger, off white head that was thick and dissipated slowly. It left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, amber color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was quite herbal with a vegetal note that I couldn’t place. It also had grapefruit pith and pine needles. The taste was filled with pine and dry alcohol. It also had a flavor that reminded me of green NyQuil. The body was medium thickness with high carbonation. It had a quick, but medicinal finish. The bottle was $1.42, which broke down to $.12 per ounce. This beer was a total miss for me. I wouldn’t have it again.
