Long Trail, and Legend's


Tonight's poison: 

Long Trail's Triple Bag



This beer was excellent.  But it was certainly worthy of its type: American STRONG Ale.  

Seriously.  This was my first beer of the night, and I seriously felt as if I became more sober with every beer I drank after this one, because the first was so potent.  

Triple Bag is delicious; just every bit of its > 9.0 ABV hits home. 

Eventually, I stopped to pick up these: 






None of which I have drank tonight. 

Yet. 

My favorite beer of the night was one that gets no acclaim: Legend's Brown Ale.  It's from a local brewery and it is no way outstanding.  Yet, it is a beer that I often crave.  In fact, I went out of my way to pause by a sports bar that I knew offered it.  

I don't know how better to describe it other than saying that it is the type of beer that "craft beer gurus" (which, obviously, I would consider myself one) should hate, but I can not, because it simply... tastes... good.  

Legend's Brown Ale: If I were to rate, would get no better than a "six" of ten, but with the highest recommendation.  I hope that makes sense and helps describe my positive, but not overly enthusiastic impression of it.

Some sampling for enjoyment later in the day: 



Also, I plan another review this afternoon: Founder's Porter. 

Cheers!
