twitters and Untappd we've been long wondering if the blog is really even necessary in 2011. Sure, it allows the random beer geek to wax poetic about aspects of beer the general consumer rarely considers - but to what end? The other beer geeks are going to try anything new regardless. The consumer is going to get bored with technical jargon and go back to "manning up" on Miller Lite.
Today we're going to share our insights on Firestone Walker's Reserve but we're fairly certain it can easily be summed up in 140 characters or less and properly registered as something we've tasted through our untapped account. If we're so inspired we'll rate the brew on untappd, which links to twitter saving us the hassle of redundancy. So, we're going to make a fair attempt to sum up this brew in exactly 140 characters because otherwise there's nothing particularly interesting about this brew.
Bland aroma and bland flavor. It has a mild porter-style, roasted chocolate finish and good looks with a caramel-nut colored head. There's some lacing though I still don't know why lacing matters. It has a body that looks like a mix of dark chocolate and coffee. Way over - 263 characters.
Like the cute weather girl - all looks no substance. Accurate but way under - 52 characters.
Walker's Reserve is disappointing primarily because you expect a "reserve" to be special. It's a fine beer but by no means special. So close - 131 characters.
Walker's Reserve is disappointing primarily because you expect a "reserve" to be special. It's a fine beer but is by no means special. Beer. Nirvana - 140 characters.
There you have it. We have scientifically verified that there is no need for this or any other blog.
