Yes, that’s right, it’s almost April and I’m reviewing a winter beer. Timely. That’s how we roll here at Poor, Drunk and Hungry. I buy the beer on sale, bitches.
So I realize this is a Michelob beer. I don’t necessarily mind buying the mega brewing companies’ faux-microbrews, like this one. I’m not against brewing massive amounts of beer, per se, I am against brewing massive amounts of shitty beer.
Anyway, so what this Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale has going for it is a cute little snowperson on the label. (Yeah, I said snowperson. Why must we gender a frozen ball of ice?) But then I opened it.
Holy vanilla, batman.
So for a vanilla extract, this is very drinkable. For a beer, yikes.
Also, not that I often pay attention, but there was like zero head on this when I poured it. And baby, you gotta give me a little head.
I know other people like this beer a lot–and the rest of the Orange St. sale rack is all yours.
