Take two for the Bullfrog Ale – I’ve had this hanging around in my refrigerator after a very disappointing experience with another bottle for a few weeks now, waiting for an opportunity to drop it into the middle of a session and ensure that my last experience with this noted beer was nothing but an aberration.
Thankfully, it seems that “aberration” was indeed the case. My friends at the Issaquah Brewery have produced a pretty drinkable drop of beer with the Bullfrog, a slightly hazy golden cloud of wheaty goodness that’s quite acceptable as part of today’s proceedings. Amber in colour with a pleasant lemony flavour and a decent level of carbonation, this was more the beer that I remembered. Definitely one that will help liven up a spring afternoon or two in the immediate future, I think – but yet, but yet, nothing really outstanding, either.
**UPDATE** I had my bottle tonight and have to say I agree 100% with Po on this one. Very middle of the road. I was easily able to drink it all, but it just wasn’t special by any means. Lunch there still does sound good, though… but Rogue will be where it is at for sure.
