Default Man Law

According to one of the commercial beer tv ads, Man Law states "no fruit in beer." I read an older post about Corona using lime to hide the skunkiness. What's up with Blue Moon and the orange slice? Same tactic?

I don't know. But I absolutely hate fruit in beer. And I hate "flavors" in beer even more. So a fruited beer with coriander is particularly vile to me.

Man law, huh? LOL!

Default Veggie Beer

In college, we used to drink tomato beer in the morning. Usually beer left over from the kegger the night before. Goes great with scrambled eggs.

That is required to cover up the taste of Coors. That stuff even kills the fish.

Heh.

I have a keg of 7.5% ABV Cherry Wheat in the kegerator.

A half slice of lemon MAKES a good pint of dunkelweiss.

Nothing like a little lime every now and then.



(and, the so-called "man law" crap was in a series of MILLER LITE commercials )

The orange in Blue Moon is a little different - Blue moon is brewed with dry orange peel, so adding a fresh orange just brings that flavor out a little stronger.
