Alabama’s new brew debut

As many of you Alabamians know the Alabama house passed Senate Bill 294 (Craft beer bill), allowing the sale of beer containers up to 25.4 ounces. This was effective as of last Wednesday, August 1st.

After work I decided to swing by the local brew shop and pick up a couple new refreshments. I went with the Andygator and the 25th Anniversary Doubledog brewed by Abita. You can check out my brew review below:

Andygator:

ABV: 8.00%

Serving Type: Bottle

Appearance: clear, light golden. Virtually no head.

Smell: Sweet aromas of lighter fruit and a bit of citrus meet the nostrils.

Taste:  Not nearly as sweet as it smells but still fresh. You get a bit of bitterness from the hops and a little bit of a sweet finish. Warming the mouth and body in a very nice way.

Overall thoughts:

I think I saw this one first on the show “True Blood”. Intitial pour releases a very nice arouma, lets you know it’s there. Average head and gets down to business. Overall very nice beer. Better when poured around and drank while with a group.

25th Anniversary Doubledog:

ABV: 7.00%

Serving Type: Bottle

Appearance: Pours a deep and dark brown with a robust inch of foam.

Smell: Aroma is very similar to that of a nice brown ale.

Taste: More like a light stout at first. Nice dose of chocolate and mild crystal malts. Very smooth flavor throughout. Aftertaste is savoringly fresh yet mild.

Overall thoughts: This guy is pretty refreshing. It could taste a little thicker but it’s a good all year around beer. You could say it’s a vanilla-lover’s delight.

More brew coming soon. Until then Stay Fresh My Friends.
