dead dayz

So I have been apply to multiple jobs as well as keeping up with some person things. Sadly I didn't have time for a review but here once again is a different Taste of Zach.

I got to see this person live on 6/17/12. I bought her CD. She was pretty good.

Saw her at the Summer Block Party in the Dallas Art District. She is also played on radio station 91.7 KXT

Dig Pale Ale by New Belgium

New Belgium Brewery are the same people who make one of my cherished amber ales, Fat Tire. This Spring Seasonal is not a very hoppy beer but still has the slight bitterness for a kick.

According to the website Sorachis Ace hops provides a fresh Spring zing with a lemon aroma. Also the Nelson Sauvin hops adds bursts of passion fruit, mango and peach.

I am not a fan of fruity beer unless it is done right. Though I haven't reviewed it yet Real Ale's Devil's Backbone has a slight citrus smack that doesn't ruin the beer.

If I didn't read the online description I would of not known that Dig had any flavoring of passion fruit, mango or peach. If I had to guess a flavor I might of guess the lemon but even that is faint unless you knew it was in there.

So if you have not yet missed your opportunity grab this beer and give it a taste. It is well worth it if you like American Pale Ales. Please don't confuse this with Indian. I know Columbus did but he didn't have Google. You do! IPA's are bitter and American Pale Ales usually are not.

So enjoy without fear.

How it was consumed: From my barrel shaped mug.

Moosehead Larger

Moosehead is a crisp beer with a very light taste. It reminds me of our domestic beer. It is very similar to Bud light.

I would not recommend this beer if you want flavor. It appears like drinking a Moosehead would be decent after a long day in the hot sun but any other time the beer seems too tame.

I must stress that this beer is not bad. On the contrary, I am sure this beer would be enjoyed by the less adventures domestic beer drinker who may be stuck in Canada. In general though this is your run of the mill lager that would be enjoyed most after working for a long time in the sun.
