It's Oktoberfest season and here at The World on Wheels we're celebrating by focusing our Cocktail Hours on beer...
Tim and I are back again, this time tasting two Oregon produced ales. Why? Because this is what I found in the clearance basket at Albertson's!
The first ale is Drifter Pale Ale, produced by the Widmer Brother Brewery of Portland. They're more famous for their hefeweisen and I'd never even heard of this ale before. According to the brewery, there is supposed to be notes of citrus in the flaver. It's an amber colored brew with a slight off-taste, probably that citrus essence they're going for.
The second is Dead Guy Ale, produced by the Rogue Brewery out of Newport. A cloudy, golden ale, this was made in celebration of the Mayan Day of the Dead. The skeleton on the label makes it popular with Grateful Dead fans. Smooth, and tasty, we liked this one the best.
