More Sam Adams this weekend. My wife and I caugt up with some old friends and he’d just bought a Harvestpack and enjoyed a couple of beers from it.
My fave was this Rauchbier. The smoked malt was well balanced; it was pronounced, tasting like charcoal or the burnt edges of a good ribeye, but complementary. The hop bitterness and acridness of the smoke provided a fascinating blend of flavor.
