Bubble Gum Head

Pours a crisp, deep golden orange with just a tinge of cloudiness to the body; multiple fingers of off-white head retain well, leaving a thin smattering of stringy lacing as the head recedes, alongside a thin collar and spotty cap.

Aroma opens with dense wheat and grainy nuttiness that just won’t quit, eventually welcoming in the softest undertones of herbal hops and citrus peel; direct and pretty impressive wheaty depth.

Taste of dense wheat now embraces grassy hops in good measure, adding a spicy depth to the profile while orange peel, zesty underripe citrus, dried straw, and lemon zest build quietly in the backdrop; deep wheaty tones resume dominance on the finish following an earthy tangerine ‘pop’.

Mouthfeel brings a medium body built on a silky smooth graininess and equally creamy carbonation; virtually no bitterness; slightly drying malty crispness leading into the finish, where sweaty grain gives it a boggy touch.

Heavy on the wheat and earthy tones, the depth touches an air of refinement that boosts quaffability to a high level; this one embraces its intensity to great success.

I'm assuming that was your review on BeerAdvocate, if so you have the lingo down. I always felt inadequate in describing beer, mostly settling for a "It's good...I like it."

Some pints of Guinness on my day off.

Thinking about doing the Tyrconnell “flight,” which consists of the single malt, the single malt Madeira finish, and the single malt port cask finish.

It would save me $25 as opposed to buying them all independently.

Ok I think I’m sold.

Cheers.
I saw the 10 year old of Tyrconnell today and almost picked it up but my better half offered to split a family size bottle of Glenfiddich. Was that one in your "flight"? The Tyrconnell 10 year not the Glenfiddich I mean.

No, I think the 10 is different from the standard "single malt," which is what I tried and bought a bottle of. Could be wrong, though.

It's nice, but I was slightly off-put by the creamy finish.

I've been waiting all day to crack into this WT101 -- so sweet when the moment finally comes.

And I said to myself: "Has all thy vodka and tequila went forth to the great graveyard of the stoned liver already?"

"Yes", answered Bob.

"Fine," said I, resigned to a fridge full of Hamm's, the beer refreshing, and the sleepless fate of getting up to piss like a bear in the woods every few hours of the clock.

"Ye of little faith," boomed the resounding voice of Bob.

"However do you mean, oh holy Blob?"

"It's Bob, for fuck sake. And I have not fucksaken you yet. For if you remember, a handle of 190 Everclear has been stashed by foresight in that place you call the cabinet. And it is good."

"But it burns, Blob," said I. "Oh, how it burns."

And in a whirlwind of smoke, Bob dematerialized on the wings of a flying white buffalo to where that last light of day and the first light of morning is forever reflected through the bottom of a bottle.
Wow! You are the drunkard's Rod Serling, messing with my head again as usual. Cheers!
If it's Saturday, I'm drinking fine tequila and fine Mexican lager. Ariba!

Bell's Hopslam. It's funny: I love hoppy beers but have a mild hops allergy, so very hoppy beers will make me sneeze. However, my other allergies makes me stuffy, so it's an even break.

Bell's Hopslam again. Pours a hearty color I can't see from the can into my maw. Tastes of a wet dog that rolled around in freshly mown grass, yet effortlessly loveable because who's a good dog? Yes you are!
Might crack open one of those cheap bottles of red I bought on a whim and cared so little about I don't remember the name. I'd check the label but it's all the way over there. If I work up the energy I might make a martini, but I think I might call it a night after this. Today is the 4th anniversary of my grandmother's death. It wasn't a shock or anything; she'd been in hospice care and the dementia had taken her away before her body gave up. Too tough of an old broad to let a little thing like losing her mind stop her from living. So... maybe a little something to remember her by. Seems a little disrespectful, maybe, to toast a teetotaler. But she loved me anyway, so I'll remember her as best I can. At least until the dementia hits me.

Okay, that was maybe a little darker than I'd planned to be. Shots!

Two thirds of a dirty Gordon's gin martini because I spilled about a third of it. Damn cat snuck under my ass when I was sitting down and I plopped right onto the fatty boombacatty. Doused the couch, my ass, and part of the cat. Fuckers gonna lick himself lit. I almost suspect that wasn't an accident on his part.
Alright, one more it is.

Three frog hairs of Everclear. Three fingers of red wine. No ice, as per tradition.
