The Pint Glass

Last night, Max's pint glass was from Lake Placid Brewery. Their beer was called Ubu Ale. At first I was timid, due to the dark pour. I am an amber colored beer type of guy. But, as Will Ferrel says in Old School, once it hits your lips, it's so good. Nice beer. Nothing overdone. Very drinkable.
The other beer that I gave a whirl was the Claymore Scotch Ale from Great Divide. You can't go wrong with most Great Divide stuff. Claymore is dark and a little heavy. Good beer, with a caramelly malt flavor, I guess, that goes well with the hops. Nice beer, if you haven't had any, get a pint.
To top it off, the O's took down the Evil Empire again.


  1. Anytime you can use a Will Ferrel quote, you know you're writing an excellent blog. :) Gave me a good chuckle there.

    What were the ABVs on those two brews?

  2. the Ubu is around 7% and the Scotch Ale is around 7.7%. neither of the beers tasted as if they were that high, which can be a bad thing.

  3. Cool. I'm definitely going to put Claymore Scotch Ale on my list of ones to try.
