Samuel Adams Utopia for dessert. So why am I sad? Perhaps it is that I had hit a beer geek plateau. Utopia - done. Westverleten 8&12 - done. Every Trappist beer has passed my lips. Sampled some extreme Brewdog beers. Drank a few Pliny the Elders. I've sampled a Dark Lord at Dave's house. Are there anymore benchmarks for beer geekness? Did I mention that I'm tried the Beer Geek Weasel? Once I've attended Oktoberfest that seems like it. How every can I climb the next rung in the ladder? I so need to get a life- maybe Ebay has one?
Lulu's Lager (Longwood) = 5/10
Ratebeer oddly not listed
Seems rare that I would give a lager a 4 point rating; this one was nice. The nose is as you would expect with straw, honey, floral and a hint of citrus hops. Telegraphing the taste is expected but the spicy hop flavours were a welcome treat. Again on the plus side - clean with low vegetal. The bright effervescence left a pleasing herbal aftertaste.
