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

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.

Wish I had another…

I really like the Lake Superior Special Ale, in fact I forgot how much I like this beer.  I was up at the Lake Superior Brewery a few years ago…might have been for their anniversary…I don’t quite remember.   I do remember that there was some sort of ‘beer can collectors’ gathering out front…strange hobby, strange hobby….Anyway, nice brewery, run by nice people who make really good beer.  Wish I had some more of it!!

Everything is just right.  Subtle aroma, crisp taste and a clean finish.  I like it.  Now, allow me to geek out and refer to a part of Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – just as Ford Prefect is about to hitch away with Arthur on the Vogon destroyer and he orders a few pints of bitters for the two of them because they’ll need salt in their system when they hitchhike.  Well this is what I imagine that beer tasting like:  i.e. something I could pound a few of in a matter of seconds because my life depended on it.
