The Mayan calendar ended last night and all hell was supposed to break loose, good thing I saved my “end of the world” beer for last night. I even signed the pledge hosted by Unibroue.
At 9%, it’s one of the highest percentage beers we’ve had (Crest Super, you’re still on top for now). The back of the bottle said it was made on lees, so to pour it out for the best yumminess. Right from the start, it smelled great! Traditional wheat beer goodness. The first sip was great. Traditional wheat beer goodness. Then the aftertaste. Gah! What the hell was that? I couldn’t even begin to describe it. But luckily, it was a very potent beer and after a few minutes, all that taste went away. I also kind of got a little tipsy after drinking it.
So did the world end? Not that I’m aware of, but at least I drank the most appropriate beer for the (non)event.
