What I'm drinking tonight: a collaboration brew! "The Streets" by Main St. Brewing and Powell Street Craft Brewery!
Why I chose this brew: Lately I've been promoting Weird Al Walker's "The Streets" game door on our telnet BBS. The instant I saw this on the cooler shelf it was a no-brainer what I'd try next!
So it's a Scottish Golden Ale, and to be honest, I am not entirely familiar with the style. It pours to a very pale golden yellow with a generous, thick white head that dissipates quickly. It has a strongly yeasty nose, and a peaty presence on the tongue that is familiar to me as a whisky lover but unexpected in a beer. And yet not unwelcome! An acquired taste, and not for everyone, but a very good experience overall.
EDIT: It doesn't show well in the picture, but The Streets is ever so slightly cloudy, and by the time I finally got to the bottom of my glass some time after I first posted this, I did notice a small amount of dregs (sediment) at the bottom of the glass. Again, not for everyone.
My rating: 7/10. This was an interesting experience, if a bit mild at 4%abv and 20 IBU, but something of a novelty and thus really no one's nightly go-to brew.
$5.99 in the 650ml bomber shown here.
