    Sure it's cheesy, but it's 1 pint 6 ounces of 10% alcohol ale. Hope it's good!

    I saw that one tonight, but settled on the Hobbit ale. Next time I'll have to get one of those. Or five.

    Never tried the one at the top, but Chimay ale is awesome. Love the local BevMo.

    Grab the Framboise. But limit it to one bottle. Tastes great, but more than that bottle would probably be a little too sweet.

    That's the scary thing with some of these craft beers. My brain is trained to drink beer at a certain pace. That pace doesn't change with the changing alcohol content. A bar nearby has this beer on tap, and I really like it. It's 8.5% and I drink it like I drink any other beer. The problem is, drinking two pints is the same as drinking four in the same amount of time.

    I also had one of these last year. They only make it in May for some celebration. At 11.5%, this shit is like drinking wine. One pint got me pretty buzzed. I don't care to drink beers that strong because my evening gets cut too short.

    Here I go... Cracking... Pouring it into a mug (I'm not a total degenerate)... nice light golden color, full aroma... and... wow. I'm liking it. Not sure how to describe the flavor, but there's a strong honey and lemon taste, but still a hoppy pillsner. Very nice. Would drink again.

    8.5/10

    @Droog...That's the problem with me period when if comes to drinking. I can put 'em down and the next thing I know, I haven't had a bite to eat and I'm fucked up. I don't keep hardly any liquor in the house, save for a bottle of Bailey's and whatever bottle of Malibu or Cotton Candy Vodka the girls drink. I stick to beer when its party time.

    I was wrong earlier. This actually isn't an ale, it's a pillsner. A damn good pillsner. :D

    Hey Tele, this is usually the part where I break out my Country Gentleman, plug it into my Bassman and make the walls shake by travis picking Mystery Train. It's a little too late though, my wife would kick my ass. :oops:

    You've got Chet's guitar? You lucky dog. How's the tone?

    It's got a set of Filtertrons and sounds beautiful, especially through my Fender Bassman or Orange Crush amp. I'll record it soon and let let you know.

    Which Tele do you have? I'm hoping to buy a James Burton someday.

    My Tele is a White Blonde with an ash body and maple neck. I got really lucky with this one, GM. Its a beauty and plays like a dream. I've always wanted an Orange amp. That Fender amp you have is tops of the tops as well and probably pairs up nicely with your Country Gentleman. Congrats.
