February 7th

Ah, the Super Bowl. The one night a year I get to watch football without being harassed by Soph. And for the game that gets overhyped with American patriotism, it only seemed appropriate to drink Anchor Liberty Ale. A lightly malted ale with a respectable backbone of piney hops and mild bitterness, it is the sort of beer that goes well with pizza and all other foods usually reserved for watching sports. Tasty but not overwhelming; an all-around respectable American pale.

I followed that up with a couple of bottles of Mill Street Coffee Porter, just because. The beautiful thing about the Coffee Porter is that it tastes like the perfect mug of java: plenty of roasted flavours with some caramelized sweetness and just the right amount of bitterness in the finish. The carbonation seems a little too much, but that’s the only problem. Out of curiosity, has anyone tried this warmed up?
