In this episode, we review the Washington Hills late harvest Riesling and Samuel Adams 13th Hour Stout. That’s right, our first beer!
Who was there:
Bryan, Kate, Tim, Jen, Chris and Tribble
What happened on the show: We find out what everyone was doing in 1988. Kate says smorgan … a lot. Jen coughs … a lot. We discuss famous Germans (besides Hitler). Bryan and Chris vent about work, Tim vents about laundry, Jen vents about her cold. We talk about “How booze made America.”
About the Wine
Nose: sweet, floral and honey, with a lot of alcohol
Taste: high acid and high sugar. Flavors of tart apple, balanced like a “good lemonade”
Chris || 85
Jen || ??
Can’t taste a thing.
Bryan || 87
Kate || 84.5
It’s good, but it’s not for everything.
About the Beer
Nose: Coffee, toffee, and malt
Taste: Dark chocolate, wood smoke, “log cabin,” dark dried red fruit
Chris || 90
It’s a good entry beer.
Jen || ???
Still can’t taste a thing.
Bryan || 90 (or 4.5)
Kate || 90.2 (or 4.57)
… ’cause she likes it even better than Bryan.
