Saturday night the Ugly Christmas sweater party was most excellent. They served the finest of big brand light beers, Miller Lite. There was also a good selection of Christmas themed jello shots. Due to my old age the hangover period took longer then it used to take, causing me to miss the 3rd beer of Christmas. According to my friend Richie, drinking an Atkins Shake the next day helps cure his hangovers. I know what your thinking, "the discontinuity within your blog really shows your lack of commitment to a passion project. If you aren't committed to this blog why should I, the reader, be committed?"
On the third day of Christmas my craft beer store gave to me, one Christmas Ale by Atwater Brewery!
I grabbed this 12 oz. bottle of joy from 8 Degrees Plato. It has a dark amber look, and minimal head. Atwater did a great job on the label, it really has a Christmas sweater look. It has a very interesting taste, I can't put my finger on it. It is very malty, and tastes a little like apricot. Not your typical Christmas Ale. It drinks very smooth, with a malty taste. I think Atwater could have done better in terms of Christmas beers. It won't keep me from drinking there other great beers.
Alright, we are back on track. See you tomorrow folks. Until then, drink on craft beer aficionados.
