The name "Michelob Ultra Light Cider" made me recoil a bit, to be honest. Advertising the calorie count (120) and the low ABV (4%) doesn't help.

I don't get home until 1 am, and the train started around 7am. But it was really a nice trip. And there is beer!

Also, after the game I went swimming. Suck it east coast.

Gueuze Fond Tradition is a Lambic from Belgium. Shaina tells me it tastes like lemonade, but she is totally wrong. Or, rather, this would be the best lemonade ever. Certainly sour, with great bubbles. Nice richness late in there too. I wish I could brew a beer like this. Or have it on tap at work, for with lunch.

The photo is of me, using a car jack to lift part of the house. We are all amazed that nobody is dead. Or even a little hurt! And now we can open the front door again...
The Lost Abbey Mayan Apocalypse is a version of Judgement Day, on of my favorite beers, brewed for the end of the world. Which I am told happened last month. I must have missed it.
The beer was good, though I like the classic Judgement Day better. No need to mess with that beer.
Photo is me, installing a new exhaust on the motorcycle. What an upgrade!

Einstok Olgerd Toasted Porter is from Iceland, and being 60 miles from the arctic circle, almost surely the farthest north beer I have blogged. Good too.
I am surprised it is 6%, seems high for a porter, but doesn't taste too boozie. Nicely roasted. A pleasant surprise from the local store, Bine and Vine in Normal Heights.

It also tells me to be careful about the sediment. I figure the motorcycle ride with it in the sidebag made that pretty pointless.
Weird. Strong pineapple. I would not have guessed 11.5%. Tastes kind of like a mixed drink I would serve in college. But better. Still not my thing.

The beer was enjoyable, but sharp. Great smell, but a little too much pine.
