On my nightly walk around the old ‘hood I happened to noticed, according to the GPS app I have on my phone, that I had burned 190 calories. That got me thinking that over the course of the first 199 beers, with an average of possibly 250 calories a beer, I have consumed 49750 calories…give or take a few thousand. Can you say holy crap? That is like eating 166 slices of pepperoni pizza or 85 Big Macs. Just some food for thought. It gives me even more incentive to get out and ride my bike or walk more and for longer distances.
Beer #199 is Good JuJu by Left Hand Brewing Company from Longmont, Colorado.
Stats – Herbed/Spiced Beer with an ABV of 4%.
Appearance – Clear golden yellow with a tiny white head. There were tons of carbonation bubbles rising to the top, just look at the photo, those bubbles were caught perfectly.
Nose – Ginger, bready malts.
Taste – Pretty much ginger throughout the whole taste profile.
Mouthfeel – Light body, low carbonation, smooth.
This was a unique beer (not sure I have ever had a beer brewed with ginger) that I enjoyed. I could see myself relaxing on the deck with this after a long day at work. It was really easy to drink with the low ABV and the smoothness it had. I like ginger…a lot…so I liked this. If you are looking for something light and you like ginger…give it a try.
