The Twelve Brews Of Christmas: Day 1

I may be the only person I know who received beer as a Christmas gift. I'm not what this says about Mrs. Wasp Jerky and I.

MacTarnahan's Highlander Pale Ale

Highlander is a remarkably unique ale that combines the fruity character of authentic Scottish ale yeast with the delightful hop bouquet of our own distilled hop oil and a "kiss" of Highland heather. Used in Highland ales throughout the centuries, heather adds a touch of herbal sweetness that blends beautifully with the floral hop aroma to produce an exceptional infusion of fragrance and flavor. The result is an extraordinary crisp and refreshing pale ale.

I have received beer in the past, though not this year. I'm waiting/longing for the day when I receive a beer of the month subscription! No, I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Blessings in the grand tradition of Luther to you.

I got a chimay gift pack including a glass! I really don't care what that says about me and my wife. I love her for getting it! I want the beer of the month subscription as well.

Was the MacTarnahan's good?

McTarnahan's is a brewery up in Portland. I like their Blackwatch Porter, but I haven't tried the Highlander. I'm not much of an IPA guy, I guess.

So.........is it any good?

Ah, glad I'm not the only one. I was feeling like Homer Simpson or Peter Griffin.

It's pretty good stuff. I haven't sampled nearly enough beers to be a connoisseur by any means. But I found it tasty.

Not a pale ale fan myself... more partial to IPAs and porters.

And for the record, if anyone gave me a Beer of the Month club subscription that would be an impressive demonstration of affection.
