500th Beer!!! Ayinger Celebrator

Well ya’ll as some of you may know, I’ve got a goal to try 1000 different beers and tonight marks the halfway point. Now those half ounce sips you get when you try something don’t count. I’m talking full pours of the stuff. You’re probably thinking “Dude, get the Untappd app!”. Naw I started this before apps were a thing and I’m not fixin’ to transfer 500 beers from a Google Doc to an app. Anyways, I’d like to thank college, and the Rowdy Knights for helping me get halfway to my goal. Without further ado here is the review.

Appearance: Dark and viscous almost like motor oil with a small head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell: Man this is full of malts and chocolates! My sniffer is about out of commission so20160831_202952 thats all I got folks.

Taste: It is understandably malt heavy and sweet on the foretaste and almost savory like a teriyaki flavor. This is definitely different than any other beer I’ve had. Its a very rich beer that I probably should’ve had before half a pizza.

Mouthfeel: It is very smooth but heavy on the tongue. This beer gives you something to chew on but in a good way. If you’ve had a big meal before, try to wait before drinking it.

Value: It was free and its also very good. I’d pay no more than $3/single in a Total Wine type place

Overall: I’d give this a 7/10. It is put together very cleanly and is a well made beer but this style just isn’t for me. It may be because of how rich it is and the fact I’m sweating through one of the hottest summers on record but its almost too rich for me.

Until next time, tight lines and cheers!

Bonus Fishing Report: 

This past weekend some college buddies and I went down to the beautiful Florida Keys. The

was rain, but I went back to a bridge I fished previously and ca

Killed some Busch Light and some snapper

ught more small to medium sized snapper of all shapes and sizes. Not to go Bubba Gump but we caught mangrove snapper, dog snapper, yellowtail snapper, a mutton snapper, and some miscellaneous bridge fish. There were quite a few tarpon nearby but I couldn’t entice any. Overall it was a fun trip and we caught some decent fish in spite of the weather (and excessive Busch Light).
