something i realized on saturday about tasting beers... I think trying to taste more than 3 or 4 is a waste. It's hard to remain objective and even harder to remember them all after too many. they all sort of smoosh together in your brain.

I notice that happens if I drink the same kind of beer. For instance, if I drink like 4 stouts, I can't make an accurate description of the difference in flavoring. If I drink a stout and then a water, then something like an imperial IPA; my palate is cleaner and I can distinguish differences better. However, if I go from a stout to an ipa or whatever (mix types of beer) I usually get all messed up in my stomach.
My best luck is if I'm gonna drink a bunch of beers, stick to the same beer type.

bleah I have had my 3 lifetime smoked beers. If I want beer that tastes like meat, I'll use it as a marinade.


tonight's selection: Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA.

Got off work 30 minutes ago, went right to the Friday night pub. Dogfish 60 minute was my first choice, then I sampled a grimbergen...tasted very similar to trois pistoles, sampled a Lancaster milk stout...very strong chocolate smell and flavor. I choose a Lancaster Baltic porter...pretty tasty. in the words of Forrest Gump: "That's all I have to say about that."

I can't say too much since I haven't tried Laginitas, but as far as quality micros go the Trippel from New Belgium is by far the best tasting beer that I've paid $8 per six pack for. I will be keeping an eye out for the Laginitas though to compare.

There is a place near me called Union Jack's. They serve a pile of microbrews. May 5th they are having "Cinco de Lagunitas". I will be there, and I have a feeling it's going to be awesome.
