THE BEER: Tyranena Headless Man Amber Alt
WHERE: The Tipsy Cow
WHAT IS IT? An Altbier, i.e. a German ale.
HOW IS IT? It’s a smooth, easily consumed mid-range beer. Good malty flavor, but minimal hop flavor.
HOW MUCH? $4.50 per pint.
DEEP THOUGHTS: Need a drinkable beer that isn’t light and tasteless? Or are you hanging out with someone who wants a “craft beer” but can’t actually identify what kind of beer they want? This will do the trick. Good but not great, and perfectly acceptable.
