I love the Bastard. It is a pretty big beer and I have found I prefer to drink bigger beers a bit warmer, around 45 to 50 degrees. Really cold beer turns off your taste buds. That is why you have to drink Cheap American beers very cold because you don't want to find out just how bad they taste.
"As cold as the mountains"... "(so you don't taste how horrible it really is)"
If God had intended us to drink beer, He would have given us stomachs. ~ David Daye
