Beer of the Day

Widmer Hefeweizen

availability: year-round
bitterness: 30 IBU
alcohol by volume: 4.9%
original gravity: 11.75° PLATO

Pale, Munich, Wheat, Caramel 40L

Bittering: Alchemy
Aroma: Willamette, Cascade

A- Pours a hazy golden color. One finger white head that shows good retention. Some spotty streaking lacing that shows up on the glass.

S- Aroma was a little faint but nothing too underwhelming. Wheaty notes blend with some yeasty aromas. Light lemony scents as well. Like I said nothing over the top but nothing underwhelming as well.

T- Follows the nose dead on. Pretty good and nothing fancy or lack there of. A easy drinking beer that shows no real blandness.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation was good for the style. Yeasty notes left on the palate with some lemon flavors in the aftertaste. Light drying on the palate from alcohol. Flavors blend well with each other.

Beer of the Day

Mac and Jacks African Amber!
rAvg: 3.97
High: A+ / 5
Low: F / 1.5
pDev: 14.11%

Cloudy dark brown with no head or retention as served not to mention ridiculously cold. Muted hops and malt aroma with a hint of something unidentifiable. Good caramel with strong hop presence for an amber albeit rather nondescript. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy but with a fairly high carbonation.

This is a very easy drinking and nice unfiltered amber. It is typically served way too cold to really be able to appreciate any distinct flavors but has a very nonthreatening flavor. It's served in just about every chain restaraunt in Western Washington so there's never a shortage of places to try it.

Serving type: on-tap

Mac and Jack's Brewery

wikipedia for you bitches.

The September 11 attacks (often referred to as September 11th or 9/11) were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. On that morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners.[1][2] The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the buildings. Both buildings collapsed within two hours, destroying nearby buildings and damaging others. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Pennsylvania after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane, which the hijackers had redirected toward Washington, D.C. There were no survivors from any of the flights.
