Been on a tasting kick lately! Dick’s Dick Danger Ale happens to be next on the list!
This is an interesting offer from Dick’s… as it pours, it looks like root beer, its nose is half malt half hop, it has a nice frothy head and a malty body… the finish is short and crisp. As I read up about it on their website, even their explanation is interesting:
“The result is a highly drinkable dark ale which bridges the gap between pale and porter.”
Even with it being in an interesting position on the beer chart, that can’t overcome the fact that I wanted it to live somewhere… I wanted it to make up its mind and pick something… as it is, it kind of lives in limbo and its claim to fame for me is simply that it is interesting.

Alaskan Brewing Company has done very well on the blog and I think Alaskan Amber is probably one of the classics, so I am inclined to have high hopes heading into just about any Alaskan beer we might run into. Alaskan Pale didn’t make it into the exclusive club, but it did taste mighty fine and make me want to drink more.
A staw colored brew with a smallish head, this sweet smelling beer has a mild hop taste that goes down easy and finishes clean and smooth. Alaskan dry hops this beer according to their website and I don’t know a lot about dry hopping but I can make a guess at what it does to this beer and I like it! Went really good with the hot night and good times in th cul-de-sac tonight. Cheers!

I still have *a bunch* of Dick’s Brewing Company beer in my fridge from when I bought a random 12 pack at Top Food and Drug in Snohomish at least a month ago. So I figure it is time to start getting through it.
Tonight, Dick’s Pale Ale was the first to be opened. I wanted something a bit light to go with tacos and this one served up very well. It had a very good mix of hops in it but the sweetness they mentioned actually balanced it out nicely. A fairly strong pale ale, this one had a good crisp finish and an overall high drinkability.
This makes the thrid Will Buy Again from Dick’s Brewing Company… we are on a roll!
