I'm trying to get rid of some of the non-hoppy commercial beers in the fridge.

I finally settled on drinking a little bit of my special ale (homebrew) mixed with apfelwein!

Ohhhh, love it!!!

EDIT: brett! quote for you from borat:

“I cannot believe that it possible a woman can become Premier of US and A - in Kazakhstan, we say that to give a woman power, is like to give a monkey a gun - very dangerous. We do not give monkeys guns any more in Kazakhstan ever since the Astana Zoo massacre of 2003 when Torkin the orang-utan shoot 17 schoolchildrens. I personal would like the basketball player, Barak Obamas to be Premier.”

This is actually last night, but I had the opportunity to finally indulge in some of my Samhain Surprise Robust Porter last night...nice and dark with bittersweet and chocolate flavors. It still needs to mellow a little, there's some astringency, but it's mighty tasty.

Last night I enjoyed a little caramel cream ale, apfelwein, and the last of my sierra nevada clone. That's just what happens when there is football on tv (even if it was sage rosenfels (not going to take the time to even see how you spell that name as it should be the last time I ever type it)).

A few days ago we were predicted to have a major ice storm that would shut the city down. In anticipation of a day off from work (which turned out to be the case with everything shut down and power out) I went to the adult beverage store and bought a few individual bottles of beer I've never tried:

Reissdorf Kolsch
Hobgoblin Dark English Ale
Uerige Altbier (Tall skinny flip top bottle!)

The Kolsch: I have never drank or made a kolsch in 20 years of homebrewing! It had a berry fruitiness that I wasn't expecting, but not unpleasant at all. Is that common for Kolsch? I'm looking at jumping over a late winter scottish heavy for my next beer and doing a Kolsch. Good stuff! This was the real McCoy, imported from Cologne.

Hobgoblin: Pretty tasty. I don't know if I would seek out a clone recipe, but I wouldn't turn down a bottle if offered. A session beer it ain't, but a nice blend of fruity chocolate and bitter.

Altbier: Never been my favorite style and this wasn't different. From all that I've tried and all that I've read of the style, this was a faithful and true rendering that just confirmed....altbeir is not for me. Too harsh. I like the hops to fight back against the sweet maltiness, but never win. Here it not only wins, it kicks tail.

In between I enjoyed New Belgiums 2 Degrees Below and some of my Urquell clone on tap. All in all a good ice-in day!

This one is known for beeing at the upper end when it comes to Alt bitterness. Most otheres are actually more along the lines of pilsner bitterness.

Could you recommend a good altbier that might be readily available? Good beer is good beer, preconceived notions be damned.
