Beer Swap

Swapped one of each of my BOTM bottles with J, for a espiègle Flying Dog Horn Dog, a refreshing Cascade-laced Sierra Nevada 2007 Anniversary Ale, a Mad River Brewing Company Jamaica Brand Red Ale, and a Peak Organic Brewing Company Nut Brown Ale. I've tasted none of these `cept for the Red Ale, so I'm in for a treat! Thanks J.

I'm something of a fan of Sierra Nevada as I think they usually hit the hop and malt balance just right. I couldn't have found a more opportune time to validate this statement than when racking this morning and I've discovered that the Anniversary Ale is no exception to this rule.

By balance I tend to like something on the order of 60-40, but who's counting anyway?
