Beer Friday. Ribstone Creek Brewery, Ribstone Creek Lager


Happy Monday kids  and welcome to a rare Monday version of Beer Friday. Did you have a good return back to work? Well did ya? That asshole in the cubicle next to you all quiet and hung over on Mondays is that it? That's what makes Mondays a bit more tolerable. There really is always that one guy at work that is just an annoying prick now isn't there..

I feel bad for office workers as there is no escape from work doofuses. At least in my job one can easily escape by just working or simply telling the offender to "fuck off' and they usually will. No awkward emails from HR afterwards or having your boss come up for a talk. The term 'fuck off' still holds a lot of bearing amongst trade workers and most (not everyone) will adhere without having their feelings hurt.

We are pretty sure this here link is the same beer I reviewed at the Cold Lake Airshow back in Two thousand and eighteen. A different can was done up for the airshow which was quite cool. I do understand the original review was done outside with many distractions...  You know, loud jet fighters and such.. So we are doing this in the lab for a more concrete answer on what is hiding behind Egerton, Alberta's Ribstone Creek Lager.

We poured and it gave that classic old lager appearance. A small uninspired head which did not last. A smell of distant hops away from another land come through. A light palate of herbal tea round out the smelling  senses. We tasted and enjoyed the offering, a grainy taste mixed with white bread fresh from the oven a day or two ago. This one was fine but it did not make me want to break down the door and get more. The extra sud on the airshow version must have been cause I was stimulated.

This beer gets 3 suds out of 5.
