I grabbed this on one of my rare trips to the LCBO. The wife asked me to stop by and see if the local shop had any of her coolers. They didn’t, but they did have some new beer for me. Lose-win I suppose. (We have come to learn now that they have discontinued her favourite drink. There goes my whisky)
I’ve had an Anchor beer before, and it was good, so I thought that the trend would continue. The label promised an “old world beer made in the tradition of the 18th century”. Sounds good, like the ultimate craft beer. It poured out light amber and had a head that was there for all of three seconds. As soon as I smelled it, I thought of that Historic Ales of Scotland pack that I got from Jackie (and have another of in the fridge. gag!)
It didn’t taste any better either. It was nasty, just like the swill that was the Great Scottish debacle of 2013. What made it worse was that this was the SECOND and last beer of the night. This came after Buxton Black IPA (which is an amazing beer, go get it).
I wanted to cry but was afraid my tears would smell like this beer.
