"Always the clincher for me: what are you working for?  Supporting a family?  Getting ready to have a career?  Just money in the meantime?   All these things mean working hard now will pay off later."

The Gift of Manliness

So my girlfriend snagged a picture of me using the Holiday Guide that I got when I ordered the AoM book, to wrap said book as a gift for my brother for Christmas. I took a look at the picture she took, and thought "Well, I'm not reading the book,…

The Much Awaited Round 4: Pilsner

Posted on July 5, 2009 at 8:32pm 0 Comments

Howdy fans. Its been oh...ages? Life hit me a bit hard, and so my time for beer tasting and reviewing, well, took a back seat for a while. Between getting sick, getting better, and moving, and yeah, starting a new job. In any case, Im back, and I've got a review.



So, when we last spoke, I had just tried the Nut Brown Ale. And I liked it. A lot. However, I had said it was a close call between the NBA, and the Pilsner. Well, I just tried the Pilsner.…

Lack of Beer Updates

Posted on June 5, 2009 at 11:34pm 0 Comments

Well...I had planed to drink a beer from this six pack every night that I could till I finished up the sample pack. Well, I have been. However, there has been a distinct lack of posting since I partook of the Nut Brown Ale. This is simply because I had a few nights of getting home later after family outings, followed by days and days of being sick as a dog. I dont know about you, but I don;t tend to drink when I'm sick. I went to the doctor's office about 2 days ago, and they put me on some… Continue

Round 3: Nut Brown Ale

Posted on May 25, 2009 at 9:46pm 2 Comments

So, No posts the past few days, because I've no time to drink past few nights. Sorry bout that, but life catches up to you some times, and I don't always feel like downing a beer (or half a beer, whatever) right before bed.



In any case, I debated a bit between trying the Nut Brown ale, or the Pilsner. I'd never had a Nut Brown ale, or any kind of Brown ale for that matter (to my knowledge). I've no idea what a Brown Ale is. I have had pilsners tho, So I decided on the Nut Brown Ale… Continue

Round 2: Spring Lager

Posted on May 22, 2009 at 9:41pm 0 Comments

So, the second beer i tried from the St. Georges Brewery was the Spring Lager.





I've had simmilar "spring" drinks. THey all tend to try to be lighter then the winter ones (usually stouts), and I've noticed that summer drinks tend to be "ales". This Spring lager tho, was nice. I liked it.



First off, the color. It has this nice golden red. Not quite the red of Killians Irish, but, IMO, comprable. (see below for a crappy picture… Continue

Round One: Porter

Posted on May 21, 2009 at 9:24pm 2 Comments

The first of the St. George's beers that I tried was the Porter, since I tend to be a fan of Porters and Stouts.





Porters are at the dark end of beers. Tend to be smooth, and have less of a bite then most beers (at least in my experience). Often, like Stouts, Porters are made with some chocolate or coffee or similar ingredient. Least I think so anyways.



At first glance, this beer was pretty darn dark. Night on black. The head… Continue

Biggles?

Anyone here ever read Biggles, by Cpt. WE Johns? I read the books more than any other books when I was a kid. Biggles taught me more about being a man than anyone else, real or fictional. Had about half of the 95 or so books that were written. Favorites were the WW1 ones, but they were all good.
