Yesterday, I was successful in Qualifying for the 4th Grade Texas Star. YEAH! It proves that I share a common writing style with 4th graders. Something I have always been suspicious of from the beginning. This means that Cheryl and I can now begin scoring together and making money once again. ( Making some form of income is really really important!) I admit, I was a little worried as I have ever scored from home before and Cheryl’s many failed attempts have left me with a healthy dose of skepticism. However, Her recent successes and help has pulled me through and allowed me to be a first time go.
So, to celebrate, we tested out the latest Founders Ale that has arrived to the far reaches of Iowa. The Dark Penance! IT is a rather sour beer with a chocolate sweetness that was meant to counter the bitter hops. IT does that….Mostly. I definitely thought that the hops blasted through the sugars. But it was drinkable and not bad. At the very least it was interesting, and every time you try a new beer, that is what you are going for.
Well, On to scoring! I wanted to squeeze this post in before I hit any validities that skew my impression and mess up my sense of accomplishment. Hopefully I will be able to keep this project to its completion. We shall see. Hopefully, One beer does not kill to many brains cells.
