Community Funnel Cake Ale

To complete my visit at the State Fair of Texas 2017, I gathered what was left of our tickets and got a Funnel Cake Ale.

Community Funnel Cake Ale - plastic cup with powdered sugar along the rim

This Funnel Cake Ale tasted like a lager. I like the additional sweetness coming from the powdered sugar along the rim. Jamison liked it and said it tastes like a blonde.

Unfortunately, I had trouble finishing it due to my stomach ache from the fried Pop Tart and/or fried Twinkie. In fact, when I went to get the beer, the smell of the fried items triggered my stomach ache intensely; I had ordered the beer at the same stand we visited earlier in the day to get the fried Pop Tart and fried Twinkie. 7:38PM PT
