Broadening Our Horizons LXXVII

We made a re-supply run out to Cannon Airplane Patch earlier today... for booze and victuals... and as we browsed the available beers at the Class VI store we noticed this on the shelves: 


That would be a New Belgium Spring Blonde Belgian style ale so... but, of course... we had to pick up a sixer of this new to us... and the rest o' the world, too... brew, whereupon we placed it in the fridge immediately upon our return to base.  It's cool enough to drink and now that we're half-way through the first bottle I have to say we're impressed.  This beer will make a nice session beer, in that it goes down most easily and has a light-on-the-palate, slightly sweet and flowery sort of taste.  I like it on first blush and predict we'll run a few more sixers of this brew through El Casa Inm├│vil De Pennington... while it lasts.

In other news... we tried to take Happy Hour on the verandah today but... alas.  It's just too damned fresh outdoors at the moment to make such activities comfortable and appealing.  We were supposed to hit 65 degrees today but we're only at 58 degrees as we speak, and this under cloudy skies with a fresh breeze.  So it was back indoors to continue as we've begun.  No matter... it's ALL good.
