After the spectacular feedback I got from last week's beer review... I've decided to keep doing it. Every Thursday night, I'll have a new beer (new as one I haven't review before) and I'll incorporate it as part of the Hotness. I don't know why, but I feel like someone is probably going to stop me with a C & D or something, so I dunno how long this will be a thing.
Anyway, this week I'm taking a look at Finnegan's Irish Amber. I live in the Twin Cities, and Finnegan's has a pretty decent reputation around here. All profits go directly to feeding those less fortunate. A six pack typically runs between $7.50 and $8.50, which is a little on the high end for a mid-level beer.
It pours well, but doesn't have any particularly unique characteristics. All in all, it's a certainly decent, if a little bland. Still a lot better than a typical American Pale Lager, in that it doesn't smell or taste like urine.
So if you're in the Twin Cities, need some beer and are feeling a bit indecisive, do some good and buy a bit o' Finnegan's. You won't be wowed, but at least you'll be helping people out.
Anyone else getting the feeling these Nintendo Directs are getting a little too common? I'm not complaining though. Would have been a slower news day without it. Tune in the coming weeks as we get jacked up on Red Bull and me...more
It wasn't the biggest Nintendo Direct event today, but we did get some more info on a few games like New Super Luigi U and Pikmin 3, as well as release dates like Wonderful 101. The event ended up being mostly Wii U-centric, ...more
It must be taxing on the soul to be a Wii U fan. On the one hand, Wii U enthusiasts have Super Metroid for next to nothing, and so far they have voted the most when Jim asked which version of Resident Evil Revelations to revi...more
