It was Christmas Party night for us. First off was my work party. It was at a golf course, it was anticlimactic and we left early to go to our trainer’s party. Mark and Julie were there, as well as all the people we see every day at the studio, except none of them were sweating profusely this time. It was a nice change.
It was a BYOB so I told Mark I was going to bring one and he could bring one. Ever the planner, he didn’t have anything. So on the way there, he stopped by the Beer Store and asked them if they had anything new. The girl told him about Saaz Pils from Calgary (Big Rock Brewing) and that the reviews she’s heard were not good. And THIS is the beer he brings for us!
We opened them up at the party and started our usual routine, minus what it poured out like. ’cause we didn’t pour it out. Anyway, it smelled like mini wheats. Mark was taken aback by it, while I loved it. It didn’t, unfortunately, taste like mini wheats (which are yummy) but it sure was different. It had a grain like flavour, so like oats and barley (not cooked) and wheat and …well, it tasted like the Prairies.
Mark was having a hard time with it, but I was enjoying it. It did get a little harsh near the end, but I can chalk that up to having a few rye and ginger at my work party first.
Mark did not overly like, what was being called by everyone else there, Spaz beer
