I'm pretty sure I've never had a Shiner Oktoberfest and I'm semi-amazed at the oversight, mainly coz we loves us some beer from that lil ol' brewery in Spoetzl, Tejas. Ain't it loverly?
My go-to guys for beer give Oktoberfest a B- and I think that's pretty harsh. I'd give the brew a B+ if not an A-. This beer is eminently drinkable. Oktoberfest tastes superb... which is to say clean, slightly hoppy, with a very interesting and complex combination of flavors... and it goes down easy, almost too easy. I'll have to be careful this afternoon.
I don't have much else to report. The weather continues to be most pleasing, which is to say today will be our fourth consecutive day where our windows remain wide-open and the AC is off. We got a lil rain last evening, too, but only enough to make The Green Hornet look like The Green Leopard. Spots, Gentle Reader... LOTS o' spots.
I did a lil shopping this morning at the Super Save, the IGA market that's within walking distance of the new abode. DIL Erma told me that Wally-World would soon be a thing in my past as far as grocery shopping is concerned, once I move. I think she's right. I've stopped in to the Super Save occasionally in the past to pick up an item or two but I've never done serious shopping there. We got serious today and there's a lot to like about the place... the produce seems to be fresher and there's a much larger variety o' same; the employees are friendlier, and the prices are generally on-par with Wally-World, if not better.
And this might be a one-time-good-deal sorta thang, but there was this red-headed, 50-ish woman who kept smiling at me the whole time I was doin' my shopping. We seemed to be in the same aisles at the same time throughout my shopping foray and she kept giving me these BIG smiles. I looked around behind me the first time she smiled, mainly because I'm a member of that Over 40 White Male demographic and generally invisible to ALL women, regardless of age. But... no. No one behind me, or even near me. Then again... it might have been my shirt:
The message on the shirt has been known to make people smile. But Hey! It was nice, whatever the reason.
