I was poured a Nugget Nectar as soon as I walked into Max's yesterday. Can't beat it. Otter Creek was the pint night, but even though I don't mind their beer, there was just too much on the rest of the list. Nugget Nectar was followed by Oliver's Biere de Garde. Although I was intrigued by the Farmhouse ale moniker, it failed to live up to my expectations. It was a very good beer, but I was looking for some great Belgian farmhouse ale from a very good English style company (I do enjoy many Oliver beers, but this, while good, is thankfully not their full time beer).
I finished the night with a Leroy Paulus Flemish Red. I was looking for a sour bomb to finish the night, and what I got was a creamy beer that had a little sourness and tartness. Thicker in the mouth than I wanted, with a bready taste, not the slightest bit of hops and mild mild acidity. The best that I can say is that it has a slightly unique taste and was very easy to drink. I don't know if I would have another, but maybe suggest it for someone breaking into sours.
What have you had lately?
