Drifter - Widmer Bros

Well if you are able to peel yourself off the pavement after another hotter than #$%! week, I have another summer beer to help cool ya down. Now, I’m not sure if it is a seasonal beer but it is a good beer to consume in these dog days of summer. It also comes highly recommended, so anytime I have someone tell me how awesome a beer is I at least have to give it a try, if for no other reason than to see if they have some sort of good taste or not.

the Original Drifter Pale Ale – Widmer Brothers

It pours a really cool color of burnt orange with a thick creamy head. You immediately pick up on some citrus scents, almost grapefruit. The taste is almost exactly like the smell. You get a nice bit of malts at the beginning than the citrusy/grapefruit taste hits you making for a remarkably refreshing beer. This is one of the few beers I wish I had bought a 12 pack of, especially since I am going to be playing golf tomorrow and the heat index is supposed to be 107, yeah you read it, One Hundred Seven degrees!

So beer friend, please try and stay cool and hydrated, I’m going to do my best. Maybe this heat wave we are in will soon be gone, its not so much the heat I’m tired of as the fact that this is giving the global warming clowns something to argue with. Cheers!
