I think I swore off fruity beers back in March after one too many close encounters of the cloying kind. Well, hope does spring eternal (ask any dumbass who voted for Obama) so here we go again:
That would be a Shiner Ruby Redbird, which supposedly has gen-you-wine Texas Ruby Red grapefruit juice in the bottle, somewhere. Beer Advocate doesn't come down too hard on the lil ol' brewery in Shiner, Tejas... rating the beer a C+... and I think that's about right. This particular fruit beer is far from cloyingly sweet; it actually has a rather pleasant tangy taste about it. I like it.
Our cigar today is a '93' rated La Perla Habana Morado, and please note the linked reviewer is a girl. We're tryin' to make amends for yesterday's somewhat chauvinistic remarks about coppin' feels on over-dressed wimmens. Pennance and all that.
More about which (the cigar): nice graphics on the band, given you smoke the cigar and not the band. Still, I appreciate the "art," if'n ya wanna call it that.
So: here's lunch or part of it, anyhoo. Like Mr. Buffett sang: "it's five o'clock somewhere." That would be 1700 hrs for us military types.
