All of the above Sad
Not much longer Dan....it'll be worth your wait Smile
Yuengling Lager - just had a case 'imported' from PA over the weekend. Apparently advertising "Will work for beer" works!
Finding that Summer Wheats are especially nice in this *&*^%&*$!! sauna that is "Oz" at the moment.
just had some kind of dirty blond, (Ale that is)hehehe. I think it was called "Dirty Blond Ale", it had a light wheat flavor, very good. Had it with some baked Salmon topped w/ cucumbers, feta cheese and fresh cilantro. Amazing!
BW I posted a story on "The World Is Your Oyster" pertaining to Yuengling, a great beer from PA. Rock on!

Was it one of Atwater Block Brewery's? I have had it before..not bad.
You lucky sonofagun you....dirty blondes are awesome!

The beer ain't too bad neither.
Had to bring me a case of Yeungling when I dragged mom out here from PA. Soooooo good! I'm particular to Newcastle Brown Ale as well. There's a local brew here (actually "strong" beer! (not 3.2)) that is rather tasty as well called Evolution Ale.

A bit weird that a bunch of the local micro's are making strong beer that's good, but this is a weird state...
So I'm wandering through the local grocery store just down the street from The Ultimate Tiki Bar In The Whole World, and whilst glancing disinterestedly Rolleyes at the beer selection, I spotted a new one from Newcastle: Werewolf Blood Red Ale. 'Cracked me up, so along with a 4-pack of Guinness widget cans I picked up a six-pack.

"Blood red" is an embellishment - more of a deep amber with a vague reddish tinge - but it's got a surprisingly original flavor. My first impression is of a somewhat maltier version of Newcastle Brown Ale, but then an intense overtone of thick smoke hits the palate. Think: "bonfire in the deep woods" kinda smoke, which works nicely with the werewolf schtick. You wouldn't think the flavor of bonfire smoke would be enjoyable, but this is very tasty, unique, and a great winter brew, assuming they're going to keep it around. Here's the writeup on the back label:

"Newcastle Werewolf - Formidable Beast
What better way to toast the fall than to have a bottle of this formidable, dual character brew. At first smooth* with mellow overtones of sweet berry fruit, a bite of bitterness suddenly cuts through, long, deep and lingering. Brewed with Rye Malt, it is naurally 'blood red' in colour. Unlike the mythical wolf-like creature said to roam the bleak moorland surrounding Newcastle, this is real, so consider yourself warned!"

OOooooo!

P.S. - Add the word "smooth," as used in connection with alcoholic beverage descriptions, to my Peeves list: I've never experienced any kind of liquid that wasn't "smooth."

Need to find me some Yeungling here in MN. Or, get it imported if I can. I figure, if I can get the local liquor store to import from Scotland, they should be able to from the NorthEast. Smile
