You're just looking for an excuse to kick me out, aren't you?

I don't doubt that for a second.

I had this beer in April after the Raleigh beer festival, and I'll just quote myself from the original review here:

The bottle you sent with me this time was fully enjoyed by SWMBO while watching Ohio State on Saturday.

And that completes my review of Dude's beers. I return you now to your regularly scheduled blabber.

Default Honey Pale Ale

This is the 2nd honey beer I believe that I have had, the other being Honey Brown. I also don't know that I have ever knowingly had Phoenix hops before. That said, I really like this beer. The bitterness is there but it isn't overpowering like alot of the beers I've been drinking lately. Good carbonation. There is something else in the aftertaste that I just can't place, it's not a bad taste, it's just something I can't place. Good job, Dude.

I'm not a huge fain of maple unless it's on bread of some type, but I think the maple flavor is subtle enough in this beer that I would actually enjoy it.

The beer is very clean tasting (I detect no off-flavors) and seems relatively low in IBUs. (I tried to look at your recipe link, but the server is not responding.) Color is appealing and looks "maple-y", and the beer is very clear. I had hardley any sediment in my bottle, too.

I think I would like it with some carbonation, but due to it being flat I can't really drink it.

I can't figure out that stupid beer gun for the life of me. I'm gonna sell it.

BTW, You didn't miss much, it ain't a good beer.

One more comment regarding this item in my review of RER:

I was talking to her about Rye beers last night and she told me that she loved your Rye. I made the comment that it was flat, but she said, "It didn't matter to me.... I drank the whole thing anyway."

SO... this beer is good enough that my wife will drink 22 oz of it even though there is no carbonation in it. That should say SOMETHING about the outstanding flavor of your RER, Dude.

I think that says a fair bit about your ability to find a good woman as well!

I tried my bottle and it was flat too. Not even the slightest Pffft when I opened it. No bubbles when I poured it.

She was sligning pints at a microbrew pub in Cincinnati (The Barrel House, now defunct) and kept bringing me free porters all night long. I had no choice but to marry her.
