Happy New Year’s Eve. One of the changes that I’m making in the New Year is that all posts will go up at 5 PM EST. I used to have it that the weekend ones would post at 10 AM, but since I post so far in advance, it’s hard to keep track of. So, now that we’ve talked about that change, let’s get to the beer.
Style: Herbed/Spiced Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “There are some days that are just made for iced tea. And then there are days when you need a little something harder. We’ve answered your prayers with Not Your Mom’s Iced Tea, a thirst- and stress-quenching twist on the classic drink people everywhere turn to for good ol’ fashioned refreshment. Don’t tell the Brits, but in America, we like our tea on ice. This classic flavor is made with real lemon juice, creating a perfectly balanced and refreshingly smooth brew.”
Random: I’m almost done with the first season of “Legion.” It’s really difficult to follow, but I like it.
This beer poured with no head on top of a dark brownish-red body. It was clear with a decent amount of carbonation visible. The nose had notes of a powdered iced tea mix. It had a bit of lemon as well. The taste was like a packaged iced tea with a lot of artificial notes. It also had some lemon flavor to it. It had a touch of bitterness as well, but this was more along the lines of a sweet tea. The body was heavy with light carbonation and could have used a bit more. The finish was lengthy with iced tea mix. A bottle of this was $1.90, which came to $.16 per ounce. I had no issues finishing the bottle, but this would get old really quickly. I wouldn’t buy this one again.
