Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball
Ok, Hairy Eyeball? Lumpy Gravy? What is up with the marketing dept. at Lagunitas?
I did not like the Lumpy Gravy, but I did read the reviews before I tried it and wondered if I had quaffed with bias.
So I made sure I sipped first and clicked later.
What did I find?
This is marketed as a strong english ale/ winter ale, and it fits the bill with a 9% abv. and a deep malt backbone. My thoughts? meh, I'm a hophead.
The ratings after drinking? It scores well.
* I stopped at my favorite liquor store and was talking to the head beer guy and he mentioned they do a radio show every Friday. I was at home and sure enough on an AM station I have never heard of, they had a segment where they tried wine and beer. This guy was so nervous,
The best part was when they tried Flying Dog's Doggy Style Pale Ale and a caller mentioned how much his wife liked Doggy Style in the can
. The on air staff missed it completely.
(I know they missed it because any
other sexual innuendo was chuckled at)
