This should definitely even out your keel, with smooth mango notes, and a light body!
Whitey makes his triumphant return on the Ale Evangelist Show, and Drew dips into the Beer Closet!
This show explores important topics like…Is is really ok to like crappy beer? What does the Scotsman’s homebrew taste like? What is an Oktoberfest beer? Why does Alabama want the personal information of anyone who buys beer directly from a brewery?
To console themselves over this violation of civil liberties, Drew busted out a 4 year old Speedway Stout from Alesmith, a 4 year old 395 Double IPA from Mammoth, and the guys try a tasty new Mango Session ale from Ballast Point. More hilarity, as you’ve come to expect from Whitey.
The lineup. Represented here, in no particular order, is Firestone-Walker’s Pivo Pils, Anchor Brewing’s California Lager, Coors, and Budweiser. Can you tell by the colors? We had some guesses!
In this, the Battle Royale, The Scotsman and Drew put their reputations as beer connoisseurs on the line as they taste Budweiser and Coors up against Anchor Brewing’sCalifornia Lager and Firestone-Walker’sPivo Pils. Will they be taken in by Annheuser Busch’s slick marketing campaigns or beer that was brewed as cold as the rockies? Or will the Ale Evangelists be able to tell the difference between macro and craft? Ultimately, everyone wins, as The Scotsman and Drew show that craft beer alternatives to the big macro beers don’t have to be chewy beers which you can’t see through. In the Battle Royale, The Scotsman and Drew will explore the lighter side of craft beer. Join them, won’t you?

The Sam Adams Imperial Series was (for me) an unexpected delight which I discovered in the company’s brewery in Boston. It is a series of BIG beers, in both alcohol by volume and flavor. The Double Bock is exactly what it sounds like. A malty, rich bock….doubled.
