Tonight’s selection is from a brewery that I would like to visit after the pandemic is over. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American Double/Imperial Pilsner
Trivia: According to the National Library of Medicine, “‘Which weighs more–a pound of lead or a pound of feathers?’ The seemingly naive answer to the familiar riddle is the pound of lead. The correct answer, of course, is that they weigh the same amount. We investigated whether the naive answer to the riddle might have a basis in perception. When blindfolded participants hefted a pound of lead and a pound of feathers each contained in boxes of identical size, shape, and mass, they reported that the box containing the pound of lead felt heavier at a level above chance. Like the size-weight illusion, the naive answer to the riddle may reflect differences in how easily the objects can be controlled by muscular forces and not a perceptual or cognitive error.”
Random: Icarus is also doing home delivery, but we live too far from the brewery to get delivery.
The beer poured with a quarter finger of loose, white head. It dissipated almost instantly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a straw-yellow color and completely clear. There was a ton of carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of grain with a hint of honey sweetness. There was a touch of booze as well. The taste also had a lot of grain with some floral notes as well. The honey was present, but a bit muted. The booze provided some warming. The body was medium thickness and had a lot of carbonation. The finish was quick with grain. This beer was a pleasant change from all of the IPAs that I’ve been having. I would have this one again.
