In High School, I used to drink a lot of Mountain Dew soda because I thought it had more caffeine. Between sports and studying, I thought it would help me stay up. I was never a big fan of the flavor, but it did the job.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “NOT YOUR FATHER’S MOUNTAIN ALE – Camping, glamping, skiing, hiking. There are all kinds of fond memories you’ve created on one of America’s grand peaks. They’re basically giant playgrounds ready for action. Those memories and that energy is exactly what inspired us when we brewed up Not Your Father’s Mountain Ale. Let’s be honest – no one’s ever had a bad time on a mountain. TASTING NOTES – If you want citrus, this is your beer. A big ol’ wallop of crisp citrus notes invades your mouth on the first sip. A smooth finish means you can knock back a few of these by yourself – or split a sixer with friends. You don’t even have to be on a mountain.”
Random: The first time I brought a Red Bull into my high school, my teacher asked if it was a beer.
The beer poured with no head at all. It had an electric, greenish-yellow body with moderate carbonation. The nose was sweet soda syrup with lemon-lime notes. The taste was sickening sweet with lemon and lime. It was like mixing a bad soda and booze. The body was thankfully, light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick finish with corn syrup sweetness. A bottle was $2.16, which came to $.18 per ounce. I didn’t like this at all. This is one to avoid.
