It’s Friday, and that means another addition of Beer 52.
The way we have come about selecting our beers for tasting and review is about as basic as it comes. Strolling the beer aisles in our favorite stores. As I walk through I look for certain things one most important is a theme to tie in to what I’m actually planning on doing.
I know when you are buy anything in the store you the run risk of being judged. Some things you should never buy at the same time. Rope, duct tape and shovel will always raise eyebrows just like a cactus, a plunger and astroglide will do. That’s what brings me to this under purchased gem of a beer, St Pauli Girl, yeah I know it’s a top heavy attractive lady on the bottle, but besides great marketing they actually but together a stellar beverage.
They have 3 different brews, lager, special dark, and a non-alcoholic. The larger, well let’s face it, it’s right in my wheelhouse and I have no problem knocking down a dozen of these beauties. The dark special is really good with a meal or to just have a couple. Now the non-alcoholic serves as much purpose as getting to second base at a family reunion.
Contrary to popular belief and the fact that many of the spokes models have been favored in Playboy magazine St. Pauli is not named for the St Pauli neighborhood in the red light district, they are actually named after the St. Paul’s Friary. Now though they are brewed in St. Louis, MO.
I give this beer 4 eagles for the beer and have to admit that the label gives me a little extra rise so the final score is a 4.5
Beer 52 Column Notes:
Our goal in this weekly review, Beer 52, is to drink beer over the course of the year and offer up a review. We rarely will select mainstream beers, but hope to provide you with reviews of a beer you may have never tried—sorry Budweiser, Miller and Coors.
A few things:
- I have to confess, I am biased and giving a positive review for a Pale Ale of any kind, will be very hard for me to do. So, for me it’s about Lager’s, Kolsch, Stouts, Wheat, Pilsner, Porter’s and other beers of these natures.
- Now if you’re the type of person that has your hair pulled back in some sort of man bun, bitch biscuit or twat knot and you’re looking for a review on some type of chocolate beer with pumpkin over tones now is the time to go ahead and go to your Cosmopolitan magazine and look for their reviews.
- When reviewing a beer or any other item here at the Unoffendable we will be using an Eagle Rating System. If its poor in quality it will be called an ill-eagle not recommended. Then we will go with a standard 1-5 Eagle Rating System.
If you have a beer you would like for us to review please e-mail me at Kenny@theunoffendable.com .
