Ranger Creek Mesquite Smoked Porter
Naturally, the beer I really wanted to drink, the OPA, had run out. (MAKE MORE!) I didn't take good notes. My nephew brought one of the boys with him, and he kept our conversation from getting too close to beer, but here's what I wrote in my 33 Beers journal:
"Jet black, thin tan head (probably because of the pour, not a flaw with the beer). Nice malt flavor, subtle roast lingers in the finish, along with a light smoke flavor." I gave it four and a half out of five stars.
Live Oak Brewing's Primus Wiezenbock was on tap, and I had to have a pint of that. Another great beer! I finished the trip with a Real Ale Coffee Porter.
Both my nephew and I were disappointed that Jester King hadn't arrived in San Antonio. I guess that means I have to go to Austin. . .
