Craftsman Spring Braggot

Type: Braggot
Origin: Pasadena, CA
Price: $6 pint at Small Bar

Me: "Hey Dylan, does this beer smell like anything? I can't pin it down."
Dylan Connell: "Dude, I think it smells like vomit."

Oh Dilly Dill Dillweed, how right you were. My olfactories couldn't pick it out, but with Dylan's help I couldn't get the stench of vomit out of my mind. By definition, a Braggot style beer is a mixture of spices and herbs in a blend of mead and beer. Craftsman's Braggot is a mixture of rusting iron and stale water in a blend of vomit and malts. The first 0.5 sec after sipping is manageable, since it tastes like beer. The next 4.5 sec taste like ass. And why did the bartender feel it was necessary to pour a beer with practically no head in a glass meant for a proper Belgian? I can't believe I drank the damn thing. I'm disappointed that Small Bar would even sell such an atrocity.

  1. Ouch. I haven't had this beer, but everything else I've had from Craftsman has been excellent. How long ago did you have this at Small Bar? I'd like to check it out if it's still on tap.
