I give it one big spiraly circle!

Much of my experience at the Autumn Brew Review is a blur, but fortunately I was smart enough to keep detailed notes in my program guide as to what beers I tasted and which ones I liked. And by detailed notes I mean a series of different pencil scribbles that I seemed to abandon about half way through. I hit up the Minnesota booths first so most of them are marked, and next to Schell’s Bavarian Forest Dampfbier is a big spiraly circle while many just have a check, or a dash, or in some cases a sad face. (Note to self: if Brew52 happens again in the future, replace star rating system with a series of pencil scribbles)

Anyway, I went to Mac’s Industrial Sports Bar on Thursday and had a pint of the Bavarian Forest just to make sure that the big circle in my program guide wasn’t a mistake (or the beginning of a sad yuck face). Good news, it was definitely a “this beer rocks!” circle. It’s got a really great crisp taste with some light fruity aroma (they say banana) which I love. I will hopefully be snagging another pint before they run out.

Ok, I'll start with my dirty little secret: the first beer I drank with regularity is Natural Ice, yes, Nattie's ice. I think the reasoning was something like, it's dirt cheap and super alcoholic. Well I've grown up a bit since then, and I actually like the taste of beer. Hence the idea for this site.

  1. It seems like every year the Autumn Brew Review starts out with talk of scoring systems and keeping track of each beer sampled. This inevitably deteriorates into spiraly circles and doodles.

    I think my review guide is still at your place. Check to see if I made a symbol of some type next to this beer so I know how to review it. 😉
