What To Imbibe On:
Founders Brewing Co.- Curmudgeon Old Ale. Vermilion reddish orange pour. An intensely complex beer with a rich, sweet malt profile. Alcohol is evident, gives an embracing warmth. Fair amount of bitterness, but it melds well with the sweetness of the malts. Flavors of molasses, caramel, butterscotch, candied sugar, hop spice essence, faint raisin, toffee, woody (oak). Lovely array of flavors smoothing over your palate with a loving finish. One of the best Founder’s beers I’ve had, and I’ve had a lot, and a lot have been very good, so that ’s saying something.

Commercial Description- This Old Ale conjures up thoughts of classic sea fairing ports, there local pubs and the weathered fisherman that frequent them. In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill creating a very strong, rich, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. We are especially proud of the balance in this beer making it deceptively smooth and drinkable at 9.8% alcohol by volume.

Phils are good at streaking this season...losing streaks that is.

Fricken Grady Sizemore has produced more in 6 games with the Rays than he did in 39 with the Phillies- .409/1.045, 3 R, 4 RBI, 3 XBH.

Good for Sizemore, but go figure.
Phils off to awful start in tonights game too, atleast Ruf just put some runs on board

Bob D said...

What will happen first? Phillies lose 60 games or another team lose 50???

GM-Carson said...

So terrible...

Bob D said...

I think the offense has improved over last few weeks but the starting pitching has been not bad, but just terrible.

GM-Carson said...

Young guys have brought a little life to the lineup. Revere, Hernandez, Franco, Galvis, and Asche have been hiiting alright last 2 weeks.

Hey, our Short Season teams are 22-4 combined.

Minor League teams are all doing good or at least okay (minus IronPigs).
