Every Friday at 8:10am we feature a new beer and taste it. Me buddy Chad give our opinions however novice and/or snobby they may be. Why? Because it's fun, and haven't you've always wanted to try out that weird looking beer on the top shelf? So have we. We'll do it for you. Everyone wins! You can also play along at home, or simply buy after we try. Make sure you pick your beer up at Spec's. That's where we shop!
Our rating scale is SUPER simple. Anyone can understand it. It's a scale of 1 to 10.
1 = Ass Juice
10 = Unicorns and Rainbows
Depending on the flavor, packaging, hoppiness, maltiness, and pure snobbery, we place the beers somewhere on this sliding scale. Purchase the beers ahead of time, and play along!
Every time I think I've had the BEST Beer For Breakfast ever, another comes along to kick its ASS. Does it really get any better than Garfunkel and Oates in studio tasting beer with me? I think NOT. The Addison Improv sent them with a tasty beer indeed.
Can't lie. I was a tad too giddy with excitement to pay much attention to the beer, but I will tell you, it was super citrusy, but not in a way that made you pucker or cringe. We all agreed it tasted "summery." I dig the fact that this is a limited run beer, and I highly recommend you pick it up and enjoy it. It's quite sessionable, a tad sweet for my taste, but just enough hops to even the flavor out.
Garfunkel and Oates were so happy to just be DRINKING beer at 8am, they gave it the highest of marks. Right on.
And now, the scores:
