Heavy Seas Gold Ale

Since I was at the movie theatres, the server poured the beer from the bottle into a plastic cup.

The beer tasted like one I've had before, but I didn't know which one it taste like. It was not, however, amazingly good, so it wasn't worth trying to recall the familiarity.

Note: Being new to tasting beers, I've been leaving out two critical steps to drinking beer. The first is smelling the beer and the second is drinking it out of a glass. As such, I've only had a fraction of the full experience among all the beers I've had up until now! On the bright side, at least some of them have been out of a glass.

I wrote: "Had Charlie Brown from Chowhound Burger with Fifty Fifty. Had to wash the oil down with a delicious Heavy Seas Gold Ale. Floral smell, yes. Great taste." 1:03 PM

Interesting, I went from thinking the beer was "just good" to "great taste."
