The Local AA Chapter

Kensington Brewing Company's Augusta Ale (AA as they call it) was on tap at a local, Fynn's of Temple Bar, so I tried it out.  I had asked for Alexander Keith's Harvest Ale, but alas, they were all out. :(

When I asked the bartender what it tasted like, she replied "It tastes like a craft beer."

At first I thought, "Hmmm, crafty, eh?... Do all craft beers have something in common that I haven't noticed?"

Maybe they do, maybe they don't.  I'd like to have someone tell me if they do though, because I feel like I should know.

All in all, it was a deeply hoppy beer.  I'm afraid to try the Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH as they call it) for I may never be able to lose the taste of hops from my mouth.  Not that that would be the worst thing in the world.... there could be worse.

Like that *awful* dressing my periodontist put in my mouth after doing some minor surgery a few weeks ago.  He put this stuff in my mouth that looked liked gum over top of the 13 lovely stitches I had just been given, and told me to keep it there until it naturally falls out.

It tasted like hot garbage covered in poop.

...and made everything I ate, taste like hot garbage covered in poop.  It was a really disgusting two weeks for my taste-buds.


  1. Where did you have this? There's a reputation developing that quality dips a lot as it strays from the reservation. I thought it was great at Burger Bar, have heard of pretty awful kegs showing up at C'est What (from someone who also later had it at Burger Bar and thought it was great there).

  2. I had it at Fynn's of Temple bar ( in what must have been.... November.. maybe October. Not sure if they have it on tap there anymore. Personally, I felt that it lacked a unique quality. It wasn't bad at all, just not particularly unique.


What do you think?
