Looks like I will have to wait a few weeks for Derek Jeter to get hit #3000. On to the 15 day disabled list he went today. Although, looking at the schedule, it sets him up nicely to get #3000 in New York…at Citi Field, home to those cross town bums called the Mets. Actually, that would would be pretty sweet. I can’t stand the Mets and I despise them almost as much as I do the Red Sox. It could be a good thing for the Mets and their money troubles though…they could keep the ball, steal his bat, and auction them off to the highest bidder.
Beer #198 is Samuel Adams Summer Ale by Samuel Adams from Boston Massachusetts. This was served in a large glass on draft from Ruby Tuesdays.
Stats – American Pale Wheat Ale with an ABV of 5.3%.
Appearance – Pale straw yellow with a white head.
Nose – Kind of light with grains, wheat, lemon.
Taste – Wheat and grains up front finishing off with a lemon zest like flavor and bitterness.
Mouthfeel – Medium body, nice prickly carbonation, refreshing.
Not too shabby. This was a pretty good beer that was super easy to drink. Mine came with a slice of lemon. I’m not a huge fan of fruit slices in beer as I think they usually cover up bad tasting beers (Corona for example) but the lemon here complimented the beer. I could see this as a good backyard BBQ type beer on a hot summer day…add that slice of lemon and it could be quite refreshing.
