All Things Food / My new Love affair with Pho
« on: February 09, 2013, 02:22:19 PM »
Damn we have this little restaurant and I cannot get enuff
of the Pho Ga....The man has taken a shine to us and is willing
to help me make some.  I looked on the www and found many
recipies (Euge says good pho a closely guarded secret) but none
seem to match what the proprietor says he makes his from.

Now to find some huge beef marrow bones and vietnamese cinnamon
thinking I am goin to sub some amber belgian candy for "rock sugar"
....ahhhhh
my new comfort food!

Commercial Beer Reviews / Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale
« on: January 20, 2013, 09:34:27 PM »
First off, I would say a BIG thank you to Euge for funneling this in my direction.

I finally got to trying a snifter of this, After I had a homemade saison...so my palate
is not spot on perhaps. (not that it ever was)

Nose is not forthcoming and if anything reminds me of wet dog...yep thats right weak wet dog.
almost verdigris coppery smelling.  I took a small sip and was like....dang NO mouthfeel kinda
watery. That was after the saison of course so maybe expected.
The Beer poured a coppery light amber in the glas and the head was shortlived and a small
ring of bubbles circle the brew perimeter.
Next sip was more better and hoppy, I had become acclimated and it was like yeah...ok I can
do this.  After that I find it to be a nice brew once you get past the smell....light and clean
on the palate not real hoppy as the label/name might have you believe.  If I could find this beer
up here in BFE whyo, I would prolly get some from time to time just to alternate from the
New Belgium scene.  Crisp and forward hoppy, not agressively hoppy. Malt takes a back seat.
IMO

Commercial Beer Reviews / Dirty Hippie / Dark Wheat / Palisade Brewing Co.
« on: September 10, 2012, 11:25:06 AM »
We took a mini vacation to Grand Junction Colorado and a side jaunt
to the orchards on the Palisade Mesa area.  Stopped at this grill for
lunch and this beer was one I just had to try.  Kind of reminded me
of a decent homebrew. If you get the chance, Denny,  Try this.
Thumb up.
(sorry for lousy cell phone quality)

Wood/Casks / Strong Vanilla Notes
« on: June 04, 2012, 02:38:40 AM »
What is the best way that wood can suppliment your beverage
with vanilla overtones? Is it done using medium toast? Or how
would a person insure the inclusion of this quality?

Edit for clarity: Using wood as the vanilla delivery method.
