Friends, friends of friends, and people misled into reading this. I want to thank you for joining me on a delicious journey, despite a drought of recent content. I wanted to take this time to give you the thanks you deserve, let people know where this is headed and wrap up what I think is working.
Okay, so up until now you have just expected no-nonsense (or at least relative levels of nonsense) reviews that give the reader a general idea of if they would like it, and what they would encounter. Today, I want to tackle a much grander issue; it’s one in the realm of beer journalism. Recently there was an attention-garnering post from “The Beer Wench”, who shall remain an unnamed employee of Green Flash (toward whom I bear no animosity). This isn’t going to be a tirade dissecting their audience-blaming, validation-seeking rant. Just a commentary on the journalism itself.
Epic Brewing Double Skull Doppelbock Lager
22oz Bomber, 8.3%
Pours coppery, rusty color. Very little head. Malts and that “lager” smell on the nose.
