I know, stop the presses. My whole bit has been the, “I hate this beer” and “My wife loves it” routine. Well, more like, “I hate this beer” and Alyssa “doesn’t hate this beer.” But I digress.
We really enjoyed the Flat Earth Pale Ale. I reserved this beer at the Maple Grove liquor store, Princeton’s, and have been saving it. I’m glad I saved it for this occasion. The occasion of reviewing it.
The finish is clean, there’s no aftertaste, the flavor is full and enjoyable. I don’t usually like pale-ales, but I really liked this. The label says this beer has hints of “raisin, cherry and toast.” I really enjoyed the toast aspect of the beer. Toast-tastic, as far as I’m concerned. Toast-tastic. I also like how they recommend pairing the beer with “steamed mussels, pizza, a rack of lamb, or even a char-grilled steak.” I guess it goes with everything.
Anyway, this review has gone on too long. My only regret is that I shared this beer with a fellow reviewer, Tim Furnish. I wish I kept the whole thing for myself.
