Frei Bier ist Hier!!

Never in my life did I think I would blog about beer, but it’s FRIDAY so why the hell not?

I begin with a disclaimer (or I second with a disclaimer). I am not a beer connoisseur.

Coming from hearty German stock--I do have the genes for it. I should be able to compete and win any blindfolded beer testing or tasting or guessing contest out there. (there are a couple photos of me as a child--in Germany--toting around a few beer bottles, let's hope they were empty!)

I digress.

I was at a friend's house the other day or night or week and they had "new" beer for me to try. I said, "No" at first (not a connoisseur) but when the question was asked again I broke down. New beer? Okay.

So walks Bud Light Golden Wheat into my life.

I can't exactly describe it. So I did a little digging and came up with a lot of one line blurbs I happen to agree with:
  • Aroma is full of a light hint of coriander and wheat upfront
  • It doesn't overpower though but it's mildly sweet
  • Poured a cloudy orange with about an inch of white foam that faded quickly
  • Definitely on the light side. Finishes dry and clean
I guess I agree with them. I really don't know enough to agree. I know enough to say that I really LOVE this beer.

It's flavored with coriander and orange peels. It's unfiltered. You gotta "roll it around" in your hands to "unsettle it." Dangerous. Just my style. (again I have no idea what I'm talking about)

I'm sure I've made you proud, fair reader! (yes, that ONE!)

I hope those beer bottles you carried as a child were empty, too. Drunk lil Janet.

I can't decide if I love that you analyze your beer taste, or think it's crazy. Either way, just drink up!
