Yep, this beer was good. Crisp, nice strong taste without being overwhelmingly ‘pale ale-ish,’ and refreshing. All that and I only finished half of it because it had been a long night and I had to drive home. But, I would buy it again, probably more than one bottle the next time. However, I have to disagree with Nick that “the bottle is one of the best” . . . it was so plain and nondescript that I nearly missed it in the sea of sweet labels. I don’t mind the “Lake Superior” wordmark – looks a bit 80s vintage (again, we’re old if 80s can be vintage) like something my dad would have been drinking when I was a tot – I just have an issue with the use of Monotype Corsiva for the “Special Ale.” I mean, it’s special, right? So let’s not use a Mac standard font.
Born and raised in Brew Town, WI (i.e. Milwaukee), I have a natural palette for (mmmm) beer. As I've grown, so has my palette – these days, I love nut brown ales and the darkest of the darks – stouts being among my favorites. If i'm not drinking, I'm designing. Or working on my thesis. MFA 2009, baby, YEAH! View all posts by atankgirl
