She usually describes the porters she's sampled when she returns home from her poetry club.

Mine was the one who wanted it to begin with, but after the first one she didn't like it. She's had a couple over the years, but it's in no means her go-to beer. She'd rather have a Miller Lite.

Considering I live over 1300 miles away from the brewery....neither I, nor the wife have tried this one. Never seen it locally either. Not sure how much I'd like it, as I've yet to develop a liking for Porters. Tried half a dozen over the years, and never much cared for them.

Not my wife, but still my SWMBO... when we met she had mentioned trying it before, and so on occasion she'll try it again... she normally needs a couple other drinks first beforehand, but normally the EF goes down like, well, like the EF...



edit: Some great responses here, thank god for Great Lakes Brewing Co., otherwise what would we have to talk about? LOL

I'm kinda surprised that there is even a beer called the Edmund Fitzgerald. As I recall, the families and Gordon Lightfoot in particular seemed pretty touchy about the subject. He kinda freaked on the CBC when they used the song as an intro to a documentary on the sinking.
