Special dregs of January double post!!! Don’t worry it’s almost February and they’re 29 days of that this year! My old-man brother currently lives in Louisville and brought a few beers home awhile back. I drank them. I thought. I even wrote about one back in September. So here’s what I had to say about the other two.
BBC – Nut Brown Ale and American Pale Ale – Louisville, Kentucky
Nut Brown Ale - Nutty Brown is what you get when you take a sip of this beer. Imagine that. I’ve never been a huge fan of Brown Ale’s in the past because they always seem to leave a strong after taste, but this BBC version was much lighter and went down very smooth. There’s also a nice dark, mocha sort of coffee after taste as well which is more reminiscent of a porter. I’m currently into trying more brown ale’s and I’m happy to add this one to the approved list.American Pale Ale - The last of the BBC beers from the brother. I suppose this one was saved for last due to the fact that I generally don’t drink many Pale Ale’s. But these BBC beers have surprised me so far, so I went into this one with a positive attitude. I liked the Saison…I liked the Brown Ale…Maybe I’ll like this Pale Ale!!.....I was wrong. I still don’t like Pale Ale’s. I can definitely appreciate a good beer though, even a good Pale Ale, and this one falls into that category. It’s just not my style. But don’t worry I finished it.
