While I’m not out slashin’ police cruiser tires and protesting, I am taking part in an even better aspect of this year’s RNC. The Convention Ale is a well carbonated, reddish hued beer with an excellent malt to hop balance. I can’t tell much by the aroma, but the taste is subtle and smooth. A very light malt flavor that doesn’t linger on the buds for too long, you don’t have to be a beer aficionado to appreciate this beer’s craftsmanship. Once again, the St. Paul water is doing it for me. I don’t even care if it’s daughter is knocked up or not, Flat Earth is bound to steal some votes with this one. Three cheers, four stars.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
