Rett says Appropriately named

July 14th, 2008

I’m sitting here in the only cold room in the house (the one with the air conditioner) freezing my toes off at 11pm. So it seems appropriate to be sipping on a ColdĀ  Spring Moonlight Ale. For that I can appreciate this craft brew. There wasn’t too much to the smell, and my first taste wasn’t as flavorful as I’d like, but it’s definitely better than Miller lite or MGD of which I drank plenty this past weekend while canoeing down Minnehaha Creek. So while I promised the wife that I’ll just have a sip, enough to write my review, I think I’ll finish it. And I can only say that because I know she won’t read this :)

Rett says The nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever so you can rest medicine

March 9th, 2008

This weekend I’ve been testing the theory that you can beat a cold by drinking alcohol. Despite a valiant effort, I’m still sick, and the worst of it is that I didn’t enjoy a single beer I drank. That is until the sweet nectar of Lake Superior Special Ale made contact with my tongue just minutes ago. Despite my taste buds being all out of whack, I’m enjoying this beer very much. Kinda reminds me of a Summit Pale Ale but a little sweeter. As Ange mentioned, and I’m sure Chuck will be pointing out, the only bummer is the labels. They’re lacking the personality that the beer has.
