THE BEER: Capital Brewery’s Eternal Flame

THE PLACE: Dexter’s Pub

ARE THERE DRUNK PEOPLE TO YOUR RIGHT? Oh yes.

ARE THEY ANNOYING? Actually, they are quite tolerable. It’s good to hear them plan their week. They’ll be drinking tomorrow, you see. Gotta make sure there’s a strategy for that.

WHAT’S THE BEER? A “jacked Maibock,” or so says the descriptor.

DOES A MAIBOCK NEED TO BE “JACKED”? No, I don’t think so. Maibocks are strong head-smackers.

HOW IS IT? Shockingly smooth. I expected a malty, alcohol-laden sip. Instead I got an easy drinker. It’s sweet but not overwhelming. Far more accessible than I expected.

WOULD YOU ORDER ANOTHER? No. I mean, yes. But not two in a row. Oh no. Oh, mercy no. Too much brain fog.

DEEP THOUGHTS: Not a one.
