I love Clue the board game and I love “Clue” the movie even more, so I had to get this beer. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Cluedo, known as Clue in North America, is a murder mystery game for three to six players that was devised in 1943 by Anthony E. Pratt from Birmingham, England. The game was first manufactured by Waddingtons in the UK in 1949. Since then, it has been relaunched and updated several times, and it is currently owned and published by the American game and toy company Hasbro. The object of the game is to determine who murdered the game’s victim, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used. Each player assumes the role of one of the six suspects and attempts to deduce the correct answer by strategically moving around a game board representing the rooms of a mansion and collecting clues about the circumstances of the murder from the other players. Numerous games, books, a film, television series, and a musical have been released as part of the Cluedo franchise. Several spinoffs have been released featuring various extra characters, weapons and rooms, or different game play. The original game is marketed as the ‘Classic Detective Game’, and the various spinoffs are all distinguished by different slogans. In 2008, Cluedo: Discover the Secrets was created (with changes to board, gameplay and characters) as a modern spinoff, but it was criticised in the media and by fans of the original game. Cluedo: The Classic Mystery Game was then introduced in 2012, returning to Pratt’s classic formula but also adding several variations.”
Random: I was hoping that we could visit the new taproom this Spring, but since we’re under a stay-at-home order, that’s going to have to wait until Summer.
The beer poured with a one finger, thick, pure white head. It went away at a slow pace and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and bright yellow. I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose was filled with lactose and vanilla up front with a touch of tropical fruit as well. The taste was much of the same. I picked up some pineapple that quickly transitioned into vanilla and lactose sweetness. The body was on the thicker side with generous carbonation. It had a very sweet finish with lactose and vanilla that lasted awhile. I thought this beer was alright, but it was a touch too sweet for me. I wouldn’t seek this one out again.
