Hmm, The two hearted Ale has such rave reviews that we thought Bell’s would kick out a bunch of these “champion beers” So we thought we would give this one a try. Now, I have to admit, I thought the two hearted ale was just fine. But I did not like the autumn ale very much. It actually tasted like oak leaves. Which is kind of cool…..if you like the “taste of fall” However, as for a beer, I was not that impressed.
Well, the color was nice, the smell sweet, but the taste….hmmm. Well, not really bad, but not really one that leaves an impression. I know this is purely subjective. And everyone has a different preference with what they are looking for in a beer. There was a note…Cheryl did not like it much….But I thought it was interesting. At least I did not find it offensive.
It is difficult to put into words as beers struggle to find their place on everyone’s pallet. I’m sure there are a number of people out there that would find this remarkable. And then move on to sample another craft beer from another brewery. In the end, I thought that perhaps it might taste better with some different foods. Perhaps the two hearted ale is a difficult act to follow. Anyway, for my two cents worth of opinion, I’m thinking it is a fine beer, but there are better ones out there for the same price. A vague review I’m sure. I would still recommend giving it a go as you never know where your taste buds fall until you taste it yourself.
In the mean time, We are preparing for the groundhog race by heading out early tomorrow morning. I guess we will have to get our register stuff around noon to 2 pm. Then we can head out and see the town…perhaps even step foot in Kansas one of the few states I have not yet been in. I’m actually looking forward to it. I’m hoping Cheryl will beat her record…which she set today as a matter of fact! She seems to be getting faster and it is getting easier to go even farther. She would like to be able to do a true marathon by the end of June. We shall see. I’ll be there along side her….pedaling frantically!
