Beer Friday. Banded Peak Brewing, Mount Crushmore


 

As another week off rolls by with hardly any riding its time to reflect... What good does riding bikes in the woods do for you? Surely it does nothing but plug up the roads some car enthusiasts and dumb fuck rednecks would probably think. When one gets into an argument with one of these noble people I enjoy shutting them up when I let them know I pay taxes which pays for the roads which shuts their registration theory up quite quick.

 A quick sniff gave me hints of what any sort of decent pilsner would smell like. Which were earthly grassy hops and hints of dried corn. The first mouth swirl was pleasant. A definite concoction of  a light blonde ale kept me thinking on the first few sips. It was a very pleasant beer as any good pilsner should be, this one has slight corn and earthy hops. 

Why do I see farmfields when I drink this? I just think these things when drinking this one..

This beer gets 4 suds out of 5.
