Purchased at: Vecenie Beer – Millvale, PA
What makes this beer different: Very very bitter for a Pale Ale
Will I be drinking this again: Probably not, too bitter.
7/24/2010: I drank this beer at a Pirates tailgate. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a die hard Pittsburgh sports fan, but I have all but given up on the Pirates. Actually I have been trying to avoid going to games completely as if me not going is really going to put a hurting on ownership’s pockets. The only reason I went to this game was because Steve Miller was playing a free concert afterward. But onto the tailgate, it was 97 degrees, and we were sitting on a black asphalt parking lot. I’m not exaggerating when I say this was by far the hottest I have ever ever been in my life. I just sat in my chair and didn’t move.
Usually I email myself notes on a beer through my blackberry as I’m drinking it, but it was way to hot for me to even move on this day. Therefore everything I am about to type is purely from memory. I can’t tell you what this beer smelled like because the air was so thick that nothing would penetrate the humidity. The flavor though was full of VERY bitter hops, with some pale malt in the background. It was well carbonated and relatively light which saved this beer a bit for me. Maybe I was just miserable from the heat, but this beer just didn’t do it for me.
Picture of the day: I see what you did there… also over here.
