This is the first morning that I felt very fresh! Partly, because the evening before is the first time in a while that I didn’t feel exhausted. Now that Tammy has graduated from AOMA, we have our weeks free when Isabel is dropped off. This afternoon, I decided to go to Opal Divines for lunch with Tammy. I had the Lucky Ol’ Sun from Ranger Creek brewery in San Antonio, TX. It’s described as a golden ale with pilsner malt, candy sugar and Texas honey. How could I resist.
Beer Advocate has it categorized as a Belgian Strong Ale, but I disagree. This is a rather light beer in taste. If I breathed in the bursty carbonation before my sit I got a tasty feel for cotton candy vapors. The honey came through, but in a sweet mature way. I could really sense the rock candy swirl that was playing like a washing machine in my mouth.
This complimented my chicken finger lunch extremely well. An excellent summer companion.
